Been occasionally getting crashes with the below info in my logs. Looks like it is related to either the nvidia 555 card or driver? Anyone else seen this before, i'm hoping it's something simple. Also these crashes dont occur during any gaming. Last crash occurred while browsing my folders.

try hwmonitor free app.... how are your GTX555 temps at idle and in-game?
Should be near 70C at LOAD when gaming. Of course the ambient temp will impact that temp + or -. But if your massively above that it would not be normal.
Test the video card using the DVI-I-1 port furthest from the HDMI directly to the monitor DVI port and see if the issue continues.
Will try that tomorrow. Weird thing is it doesnt happen under load or while gaming. I can just be copying files or browsing folders - then out of the blue freeze/crash. I can go a day or more without seeing the issue. Highst temp while gaming has been 85C. Fan is definately running.
No errors in event log.
Ran the stress test included in the Alien autopsy software - no prob. a couple times when I started AlienAutopsy the software would crash - click again and it's fine.
Couldnt get it to happen with dvi but then again it doesnt do on demand with hdmi either. Usually crashes while idle -browsing files or a txt doc. pulled the card to check for any running cables (looked ok) reseated and now rubbing stress test - temp 82C fan 61% (2580rpm). curious if the error i get during the crash is similiar to those with the shutdown issue.
found this on MS. This is value i recieved each time.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code
If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error. If your copy of Windows came with your computer, call the manufacturer of your computer. If you purchased Windows separately from your computer, Microsoft provides support. To find contact info for Microsoft or your computer manufacturer, Contact Support.
ok.. just got off the phone with alienware support. Explained my problem. They uninstalled my Dell Nvidia drivers and downloaded / installed the latest from nvidia site.
Now we will just wait and see. I didnt realize there is a charge on a new machine under warranty if you reinstall anything without calling dell first when you get a blue screen :O.
If it crashes again i get my money back and and they will fix under warranty. So i got that going for me.

Are you saying they'll charge us?
