Windows 7: The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.

18 Feb 2014   #1

The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.

at random times the lock-screen freezes and a hard reset is needed. Keyboard light still toggle yet the SysReq + REISUB key combination does not do anything. Where is some syslog for checking why the kernel dumped and find potential solutions? This is windows 8.1, is this a known bug?
