Oculus crashes my PC midway into gameplay. PLEASE HELP :(

My Oculus seems to freeze my entire PC around 10-30mins into gameplay, no matter which game. Suddenly game play and sound both freeze,  and than within a few seconds the headset goes black and displays a yellow light upon removing the headset. My PC monitor stays frozen with the last frame of the game displayed right before the crash. The only option I have at that point is to hold down my PCs power button and manually restart the computer. No idea if this is hardware or software related, but i have updated all of my driver's and my PC came Oculus ready. How do I figure out what is causing this to happen? Is there any software I could run to pinpoint the cause?

    I have the same problem. When the game pauses, it seems that the Nvidia driver has restarted itself but in doing so has taken the Oculus driver offline - and the Restart Oculus available with the Oculus Home app doesn't help - so reboot must be performed. I have tried about five different video card driver sets including 382.53.

    You can post your LogGatherer log zip file. Maybe there is some clue in there.
