Windows 7: Crash and Reboot multiple times, playing plants v zombies

03 Nov 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, SP 1
Crash and Reboot multiple times, playing plants v zombies


The system crashes in the middle of playing Plants V Zombies (a really cool game, I know, but what do you do?). It doesn't BSOD or hang, just powers off and then you have to reboot it. The error log clearly shows the unclean boot but I can't figure out what is causing it.

I tried using the BSOD Diagnostic tool, but it didn't find an error dump file even though error dumps are configured. The output from the file is, of course, attached. Any suggestions or recommendations would be much appreciated.

OK- this sounds like my problem. I have an ordinary ASUS U56E just reading email, pdf-files, surfing. There is no dump-file, it just seems to power-down and the there are always two events, one critical: Kernel-41 "System was not cleanly shut down" and one Error: Eventlog 6008. When it comes back up, a screen asking me if I want to start windows normally. All the events happen -after- the shutdown--that is, during reboot.

On my system it doesn't seem to happen if I leave it unattended overnight, say. Seems like there needs to be some mouse activity.
