Hi there!

I'm getting random crashes on my desktop! I'm just wondering if anybody has any ideas?

I'm running windows 8. Once every 2 hours or so, I get a plain blue screen appear and everything locks up. No :( emoticon or message, literally just a blue screen.

It also locked up a few weeks ago and needed me to re-install Windows...

Any ideas?

Specs

CPU: i5 3570k (stock speed)
Mobo: Asus P8 Z77-V LX2
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB
GPU: Sapphire HD 7850 2GB
PSU: Corsair CX600M
HD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Cooling: 1 x 120mm Case Fan + 2 x 120mm CoolerMaster Sickleflow.

Its been up and running for roughly 6 months with no problems at all until now!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Wish I could help, but I've been having the same issues for the last few weeks and I don't know what it is. The only new program I've installed was Origin, and I'm not sure that that's what would cause the issue. For me it has only been happening if I'm playing a game.
