    Aright, so this is the situation:
    I come home from school at 17:00 PM, I go take a shower, do that stuff
    At around 18:00 PM, I boot my pc,
    It shows the bios screen, goes in post, shows a BSOD (cannot read it, it goes away directly)

    PC restarts automaticly, it boots perfectly (and fast)
    There is not a minidump or anything, no error messages, nothing :-s

    I am running an customized build:
    * Antec 900 Case
    * Intel Quadcore 9450 @ 2,66 Ghz (not overclocked)
    * Nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX 512MB Dual in SLI
    * 6GB Ram
    * 1500 Gigabyte HD
    * Sound Blaster X-Fi
    * CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, Bluray, Dual layer, Lightscribe
    * Highspeed Ethernet card
    * 5in1 card-reader
    * 10 USB ports
    * 22" Screen
    * Vista Experience Rating: 5.9/5.9

    It is not overclocked, and I did not mess with anything in the bios
    I searched on various sites, asked help of some friends, but I did not find any solution =(

    I wonder, if there is anyone who could help me?
    It would be really appreciated.
    Thanks already!

    uncheck "automatically restart" under startup and recovery , check write an event to sys log so next time it happens you can read the BSOD and maybe get a log entry.

    You might run a hardware stress test (looping prime 95 on all cores and looping 3dMark in background same time for example) to be sure it's not a power supply/thermal hardware issue.

    If your system has run some time and never before experienced a BSOD until now, consider any recent changes or new software/drivers/etc....hey it's only 2 cents worth.
