My Acer desktop has recently started crashing every couple of hours showing the fault as BSOD ID:2057 which after browsing several forums appears to be a hardware signature problem however have not come up with a solution. Any ideas would be appreciated?

Unsigned driver for some hardware, have you recently installed updated drivers?

Either roll back the drive / check for updates that are signed

or use EasyBDC and type commands

bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE _ INTEGRITY _ CHECKS

(remove spaces before and after -)

bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON

Thanks Fruit Bat have checked for driver updates and all are up to date. Have not installed any new hardware or updated drivers apart from a recommended Windows Auto Update to chipset a few months back and problem has only started a couple of weeks back. This leaves your EasyBCD suggestion. Could you please explain what the commands you refer to will do?

Have a look at ths thread, esecially the 02-06-2011, 01:57 AM post by LionHeart558 . Suggesting overheating?

Thanks rdave13 considered overheating and have monitored CPU which is a quad core and all temps normal. I did however, tilt the computer to plug in an audio lead and when I did this the BSOD occurred so thinking possibly something loose inside. It's a small midi desktop which does get moved around. It's about 18 months old out of warranty so I think I will have to break the seal, open it up and check that memory seating properly etc,

I am ticking this as sorted since all seems normal now, suspect it was a bad ethernet contact on back of computer. Thanks to all responses much appreciated.
