I updated the bios, to 5.21(now), thinking that would solve the problem.
I left the computer running, came back from school one day, same error message.
Pictures from desktop after crash:
Blue Screen 1
Blue Screen 2
My computer toolbar/taskbar at the bottom, freezes a lot, whenever I run Windows Media Player, especially if I pause a video, and open the Snipping Tool.
I just don't think the computer should be having issues like this, this early. I'm tempted to call HP, but I'm afraid of the nightmare that may end up being the customer service.

I also have the HP P6214y with the following aftermarket components:
I bought a new Power supply a Corsair TX750
To power my new Graphics card PNY GeForce 9800 GTX+
Installed both and the computer functions fine.... BUT randomly the computer will completely freeze and I have to reboot the computer. Sometimes I will leave the computer on and walk out of the room and walk in 10 mins later move the mouse and then it instantly freezes. Sometimes I will hear a noise out of the speakers that sounds like it froze and it of course did. The computer will not reboot until I press the power button. I dont get a blue screen of death or anything. I wish I did so I would have an error code to work with. When I restart the computer I get the normal "Didn't shutdown correctly, how would you like to boot" screen and start the computer normally. Sometimes after I load up to the desktop and I open a document or a game and it freezes again, but sometimes it doesn't. I would think somehow drivers are conflicting somewhere. But I really dont know. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
