Re: [WIN7] Computer shut down unexpectedly


Not yet, but it at that temp and sitting in a blanket it would suggest reviewing the habits of where the laptop sits to help diagnostics - just to eliminate over heating.

The error for kernel-power rebooting only tells you it did it and really doesn't give any insight, maybe an event log prior to shut down will show something, but generally if there is a hardware/bios level issue you may not see a log in Windows when the system shuts down. Worth a look at events prior to shut down though all the same.

Thanks. I have been trying to find the right "view" on Event Viewer...i'm no expert.

Yesterday when I was searching through Event Viewer, I located an Event 37 Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Processor-Power, which may have been prior to the shutdown. Googling that I found that it could be a heat thing where firmware shuts down a processor (not sure).

Today, I can't find the same error in same time sequence, but that may be due to my inability to correctly use Event Viewer (there are a lot of options to select on the left side.) Any suggestions?

Also, today I dusted out the fan vents with canned air.

When you open the Event Viewer, expand Windows Logs and you will see Application, Security, Setup, System and Forward
ed Events
. You need to concentrate on System, but Application may or may not show events at the time that may help.

That would definitely help.

I wonder if there's a tool that will log temps prior to shutdown.

There are many tools out there that monitor temps. Core Temp, Real Temp, SpeedFan, to name a few. CPUID which you have already. Just leave it open and keep an eye on temps while working.
