Windows 7: Random Shutdown with no Errors

Random Shutdown with no Errors

Hello! So for the past couple of months my computer has been randomly shutting down. This has happened anywhere from once a day to several times a day. When the computer shuts down, it appears to attempt to restart. I can hear the fans turning on and it sounds like it's increasing load momentarily...slows down...increases again. It will do this indefinitely (I left it overnight once to see) unless I force it to shut down completely and then just manually start it up again.

This does not create a BSOD or dump logs of any kind that I can find on my computer.

Oddly enough (and I'm sure this is probably just a coincidence o.0), nearly every time this has happened, my cat has brushed up against my tower or jumped on top of it.

Magic cat aside, does anybody have any suggestions on what the issue might be or how to troubleshoot it?

Type services.msc in the start search box. Click on the gear icon to go into services. Find Bonjour service, right click --> choose properties, stop the service and set it to disabled. Click apply and ok.

Do the same thing for AMD External Events Utility service.

Run your computer for a while and see if you still have the problem.

I disabled both bonjour and AMD External Events Utility services. Unfortunately, I've continued to suffer from the same random shutdown a couple of times since then. Happened again just now. I've attached another error log here.

Have you cleaned out the cat hair and dust bunnies that may be clogging the fan(s) inside your computer? It's possible that it could be over heating.

Just did a cleanout of my computer and it's running while gaming with the following temps according to speedfan:

CPU: 61C
GPU: 74C
Core: 62C

I'm not really sure if that's considered high or not. Though I've had these random restarts if I'm just browsing the web and at those times, my CPU tends to be around 38-42 or so.
