  • Update your Windows.

    Could you post screen shot of your issue.

    Open Action Center and in reliability history review history and send report for problems that haven't been report by click on them.

  • Thanks for replying

    I would not be able to get a screenshot as it just goes blue and says 'Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart after we collect info'.
    Went into action center and all my reports have been sent,

  • It may help to look at the minidump files from the crashes with a debugger.

    Can you zip up the minidump files in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder and make available (provide link) via Windows Live SkyDrive or similar site?

    The following link has information on using Windows Live SkyDrive:

    If you have problems zipping the minidump files copy the minidump files to another location such as a folder on the Desktop

    Also, you do not necessarily have to zip up the minidump files, you can upload them one at a time.

  • The minidump file showed a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (3b) stop error referencing the win32k.sys:

    BUCKET_ID:  0x3B_win32k!XDCOBJ::vLock

    These types of errors are sometimes graphics driver related so try updating the graphics driver.

    You can try the following tool from AMD to try to obtain the latest graphics driver:
