  1. Hello all,
    I have a problem as you guys can see,and its that my computer crashes if i leave it idle.
    I dont have any problem if i play games,watch movies etc for hours,but if i leave the computer idle,for say half an hour,it crashes.
    Then on the restart i get an error 'System has recovered from a serious error'.
    I thought it had something to do with graphic driver (catalyst 7.7) ,so i uninstalled it and installed a previous stabler driver (Cat 7.4).Still the problem persists.When i googled i found intel application acceralator may also cause this,so i have tried unistall/re-install and even tried another version.

    One thing i noticed is that on the crash there is a thin red line at top of screen.

    and my system configuration
    P4 2.4Ghz
    512MB RAM
    Ati 9600pro
    intel 845 mo-bo

    Any help would be appreciated.Thank you :)

    Is your PC set to go into sleep/standby?? A lot of PC's have trouble with standby modes.
