Windows 7: System crashes, no bsod no error message

03 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 ultimate x64
System crashes, no bsod no error message

New to the forums, so please excuse any mistakes.

My system is randomly crashing. No bsod, no error message, just shuts off. Unable to locate any crash dumps at all, and the event viewer lists these following events, nothing useful that I can find:

The previous system shutdown at 6:46:26 PM on ‎10/‎3/‎2010 was unexpected.

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Session "Microsoft-Windows-Setup" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D

Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0.

Have been unable to find any .dmp files, and there is no minidump folder, so unable to provide a minidump. This has been happening for some time now. I can force a crash by playing any game, but it only happens after several minutes in, and it will randomly happen even when doing nothing.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please do the following:
1 - force a crash by playing a game. Note the time that the crash occurs at and post it in your next post.
2 - then follow the directions here to make reports (even though you're not having BSOD's):

We'll use the time of the crash to help us look for errors in the different reports.
