"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart" happens randomly

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A few months ago I was playing a game, and my computer randomly blue screened with the infamous error message "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart". I restarted, and everything was fine. About a week later, it did it again. I was worried, but didn't do anything about it. About 5 months later, I replaced my motherboard, CPU, and RAM. Everything was working fine until yesterday (3 weeks after the hardware change) when my computer blue screened again when coming out of hibernate mode. Once again, it restarted and everything seemed to work fine. What could be causing this to happen? It seems strange to me that my computer shows no other signs of having problems, except for the occasional blue screen.

It's only happened 3 or 4 times, I ln the 2 years that I've had my pc. I just want to know if I should be worried, or If it could be something minor.
