    Hi, in the last few weeks I started finding my PC completely frozen on a black screen, in the MORNINGS.

    Win 7 64 SP1
    Intel i7 860
    4GB RAM
    Gigabyte P55M-UD2
    ATI Radeon HD5700
    Sound card: M-Audio Profire 610.

    Leaving it working at nights means I'm only uploading stuff via uTorrent. Nothing else.
    I'm regularly pushing it's performance - music production kills CPU and RAM, latest games milk the GPU, but doing that never caused crashes or freezes.

    The point - it happens only after long hours of doing nothing (so far). i.e. idle for the whole night. Or the whole night and morning after it.
    Doesn't always happen, but most of the times.

    Some notes:
    - The PC is not old, and it was connected to the internet only a few months ago. Protected, no viruses.
    - Sound card has caused A LOT of problems. BSODS and instabilities - only when working with Cubase. It's a major suspect.
    - Only once have I seen it freeze in front of my eyes. First windows just froze, no black screen. I power-shut off at that moment, I guess after some time it becomes black.
    - A few days ago the display device crashed (first time I had a problem with it). I installed the latest drivers afterwards. Not enough time passed to state it won't happen again.



    Any log I could provide? No idea which...

    It says "The update is not applicable to your computer". (checked the 64/86 thing)
