Computer Reboots Randomly While Playing Minecraft

Hello all you wonderful people! For the last year, give or take, I have been experiencing this problem, and just now have I pushed myself to take it to the internet. After starting Minecraft, it runs fine for ~15 minutes and reboots, without giving any warning or prior notice of the reboot. After I login again, Windows returns a "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" dialogue and directs me to the following files that "help describe the problem", the contents of which are below:

"C:\Windows\Minidump\101814-14414-01.dmp" and
"C:\Users\Endergreen117\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-40201-0.sysdata.xml"

Here are the contents of said files:

"C:\Windows\Minidump\101814-14414-01.dmp"



"C:\Users\Endergreen117\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-40201-0.sysdata.xml"

* attached as "document.txt"

Here's a screenie of the dialogue I was talking about:



If you need any more information let me know.

The symbol path is invalid so the output from WinDBG makes no sense at all.

Follow this :

1. Download the DM Log Collector application to your desktop by clicking the link below

DM Log Collector.exe

2. Run it by double-clicking the icon on your desktop, and follow the prompts.
3. Locate the .ZIP file that is created on your desktop, and upload it here in your next reply.

Thanks for the tip Golden I was just assuming the OP could just send the files.

Alright, so I've attached DM Log Collector's ZIP and I've also attached the my specs, as returned by Speccy, but it doesn't look like speccy has information on my PSU, so give me a little bit and I'll check it out.

Alright, so after taking a peek at my PSU, I am led to believe that this is almost definitely the problem. I have a 300w ATX PSU that I used to replace my old (and mo longer functioning) 400w PSU. However, I currently do not have access to another PSU right now, so I'd like to rule out all other possibilities first.

Edit: After about a month of it originally starting, there was a pause in this happening (as much as it had been) and recently, this started happening again shortly after adding a second monitor to my system. could this second monitor be to strenuous on my graphics card?

So, I removed my second monitor, rebooted my PC and the temp displayed be Speccy for my Graphics Card was 150 degrees Fahrenheit. I started up Minecraft and played for about an hour with no problems, and my GC temp rose to about 225 degrees Fahrenheit and capped there. I then stopped playing for about 15 minutes and the temperature fell to about 168 degrees Fahrenheit. During this whole process my computer did not shutdown or reboot. This has led me to believe that the cause for the random reboots was that the second monitor was drawing too much from my graphics card.

Try this

UsingHW Info PSU

Download HW Info and pick the right bit version -
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 -Download -(copyand paste this site into the search bar) If you donot need the runninginformation in the smaller right hand panel close it. Inthe left hand windowclick on the + for the individual device groupings and theywill open out tothe various components.

Go on opening out further until you get to the device itself. click on it anditwill highlight. In the right hand window there will be a verydetaileddescription of that device as in brand, speeds model number etc etcThese arevery detailed and are just what is needed for searching for driversetc.

To getthe PSU volts you need to select the Sensor button circled in yellow inthe picfor PSU testing do the same and scroll down the readout as in my pic towhereit has Nuvoton = yours might be a different section name / title. Postback apic of that please.

If you want a more definitive test see this
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/301799-psu-test-dc-output-voltage.html
butleaseonly use a digital multimeter and not an analogue as they injecttypically 9vinto a circuit to test and into a 3.3v or 5v rail - not a good idea!!see thepartial pic of the correct sort of meter in that tutorial. details ifyou scrolldown that listing.

Now a good reference article is this
Voltage Rails - Power Supply 101: AReference Of Specifications it will explain in detail what thevoltages are and functions of the PSU/
