Windows 7: Random Crash to shutdown, no warnings

22 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Random Crash to shutdown, no warnings

Clean installed retail version of windows 7 home premium x64
Got the laptop about a month ago.
OS is a little bit newer than that, maybe half a month old.

Please help, I have no clue as to what the problem could be since it never shows any warning dialogue or message. All it does is the screen suddenly becomes striped, and then it shuts down.

Thank you!

First, read 2) of:

Run some hardware checks.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Also, proceed through the steps in Event ID 10 is logged in the Application log after you install Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

Occasional random shutdown leads to crash
My fairly new laptop (<3 months old) will occasionally shut down while the lid is closed. When I open my laptop when this happens it's already at the boot menu for "windows did not shut down properly." It has so far only happened while the lid is closed and I haven't actually seen a BSOD.
