Unexpected Shutdown-Kernel Power issue

Im having the same issue as Chris, ive tried doing all sorts of different things that are posted in different forums but nothing fixes the issue.

My computer shutsdown randomly at least once a day, usually the first time I turn the computer ON in the day.

Im attaching the minidump files.

Hope you guys can help, my computer is brand new got it in December and almost since then Ive been having this issue.



FYI This is what I see in the event viewer:

- <Event xmlns="">
- <System>
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}" />







<TimeCreated SystemTime="2010-02-10T04:13:55.991209700Z" />


<Correlation />

<Execution ProcessID="4" ThreadID="8" />



<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />

Any ideas on what could be causing the problem?

Kernel-Power in the event viewer is logged as a critical error after or during a bluescreen. If you don't have bluescreens and your computer shutdown unexpectedly, then i guess one of your components is failing.

1. Scan all your hardware with BurnInTest.
2. Swap the power supply.

Good luck
