Windows 7: PC froze: What to look for in Event Viewer

PC froze: What to look for in Event Viewer


Lately I got problem with my PC. I just can't source what could be the origin of the problem.

I did post a tread
How to know what caused Windows to crash.

Now, I want to be more specific on the information that I could get ( if there is any) from Windows Event Viewer

While I was working, A blue screen with a message that Windows had to close because a device had a failure. No message of the device

- I shot down and reload... same message
- I shot down, replace my SSD with a previous one Same problem
- Remove a data hard disk with my old SSD. System start ok
- Replace the new SSD without data hard disk, system start ok
- Replace the data hard disk with New ssd, system start ok

This is an intermittent problem. I can't source the origin of the problem

- did a defrag on my data disk ( not on the SSD). All ok

I'm looking on the Events Viewer and I see critical error message. But, it is like a foreign language for me
Kernel Power ID 41 (63)

Again, any help trully appreciated

Event viewer is not always the best way to go in this situation;

I think that the clean boot mentioned in that post would be the best place to start
