    So last night I was plying League of Legends (My friend got me into it), and i really made my computer work hard, and the fans were on full drive. I was having too much fun, so I decided to be an idiot and not stop playing. WHen I was done, I put my PC into sleep as usual, and woke up to a restarted computer with this message:

    Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.


    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.768.2
    Locale ID: 1033

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 9f
    BCP1: 00000003
    BCP2: 87419030
    BCP3: 87430B08
    BCP4: 84431130
    OS Version: 6_0_6000
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 768_1

    Files that help describe the problem:
    C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini092411-01.dmp
    C:\Users\Suzannne\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-156593-0.sysdata.xml
    C:\Users\Suzanne\AppData\Local\Temp\WERB579.tmp.version.txt

    Is this in anyway related to games? I know I have to go to appdata whenever I install Minecraft mods, so I'm getting a bit worried. I'm refraining from playing ANY games until the problem is solved.

    More likely than not your system was running hot, and that can cause all sorts of issues. Observer it under normal conditions and see if you BSOD again while not under heavy load.

    I would also HIGHLY recommend improving the cooling in your PC.

    adding an additional/better (larger and/or faster) fan. Does your PC have good air flow for it's fans? ie. Are they pushed up against a wall with airflow, etc.

    Also, when you notice the fans kicking in high gear like that, give it a break. not all PCs are made to game like that.

    You could try dusting out your case. Grab a can of compressed air, open the case, and blow it all out, especially around the fans.

    Personally I prefer to shut down my computer (as opposed to sleep mode) if I'm going to be away from it for more than 3-4 hours, like when I'm at work or sleeping. If some other process was getting buggy, this should reset it. Also it can prompt updates to run, depending on your settings.
