I have my system working absolutely fine for quite a long time , but in recent times I seem to face the problem of it crashing if left idle for long.
My first step was to initiate safe mode and see if it repeats - It doesn't.
Second step - disable all start up service and programs and check one by one for anything that causes the error to repeat. Result - I avoided unwanted programs and kept what is necessary and it was running fine.
Last night left the system on overnight. It crashed and I cant access the task bar ( I get the wait mouse pointer ). Please see this Image
My system config:
OPERATING SYSTEM - [ MS windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP-1 ] CPU - [Intel Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40Ghz ] MEMORY - [ 16.0 GB RAM ] GPU - [ NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 ]
