What happens to computers overnight?

I turned off my pc and turned it on in the morning to play video games and the blue screen of death came up so I restarted and it came up again so I ran a virus scan, spyware scan, defragged my hard drive, used the chkdsk feature and nothing worked so I reformated my harddrive!!!

This happens alot that the blue screen of death comes up and I can't get rid of it!!!

have you tested your memory lately?

Are all the BSODs the same? if so what codes are listed?

Have you checked your log files for errors?

Your not serious right? BSOD - Blue Screen Of Death

Is the BSOD coming up when you are playing games or when you boot up?

Generally indicative of a hardware driver conflict. Have you added or significantly changed any hardware? You have reformatted and are you still getting BSOD?
