Blue screens on idle loop

  1. When my computer goes idle it goes into this strange loop of blue screens.
    1. Blue screen pops up with the error
    2. it says it restarts and the windows loading goes through
    3. loads up to a "desktop" like setting no icons just teal background
    4. another error occurs and starts back at 1.

    The only way out of this loop is to press the power button. When i press it it tabs back to my original desktop applications still in tact and obviously restarts before i can do anything. This only happens when I'm idle, I can be on the computer all day and its fine. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas/suggestions on this? I've attached a few things, if you need more info just tell me. Thanks

    What I've done
    Memtest over night 9 passes 0 errors
    Checkdisk on reboot 0 errors
    Diagnostic start up - still blue screen on idle
    safe mode start up - still blue screen on idle

    Given that the computer stayed on over night when i ran memtest leaves the hard drive as the only remaining factor I think.

    They range from the errors listed below and just continue going.



    i think most if not all have this in common
    stop at 0x0000001E

    Make sure you have the newest drivers for all of your hardware Ex: video card. Also update your bios. for the hijackthis you forgot to rename it to crusty.exe

    This refers to a spoof screen saver. I looks like a virus has installed this. Check and see if the screensaver tab has been disabled in the display properties,
    which is most likely.
    A quick search an the web will tell you how to retore this, then change the screen saver settings. Also look in the system32 folder for strange looking scr files, one of these will be the spoof screen saver.
