been getting intermittent BSODs and on restart being told i had error 2057.
This only happens when i open CPUID HWmonitor but not every time i do.
im a little confused...whats the problem and how might i fix it?

Update - Windows just told me that the graphics drivers had crashed so i re-installed those...maybe that'll make a difference?

Nope no difference, Still BSODs whenever i open HWmonitor, but never anything else.
here's the BC code...i've looked around and not found any consistent answers with that either...
BCCode: 124

Default Re: BSOD with error 2057

You gotta figure out why the graphics driver is crashing though, because it could be a multitude of things causing the problem.
Use this program called "WhoCrashed", and it will tell you (for the most part) all of the details of the BSOD you just had and subsequent ones as well.

My graphics driver would fail everytime I shut down the computer. It would always bluescreen right before it shut down, so instead it just restarted. WhoCrashed told me that the GPU wasn't getting enough power during the shutdown process and therefore would crash. Trust me, it's a pretty handy program.
