Windows 7: Not BSOD, but frequent shutdowns that do not show BSOD

Not BSOD, but frequent shutdowns that do not show BSOD

Okay, I recently downgraded from 10 back to 7, partially because of this issue. It seems to happen whenever I am playing Steam or rendering a video with Sony Vegas Pro 13. Through the event viewer, this is what it shows me in the attached picture. The 6008 event tells me this:

- <Event xmlns="">

<Provider Name="EventLog" />
<EventID Qualifiers="32768">6008</EventID>

I don't even know where to go at this point. I thought it may be a power issue, but my PS is 500W and my system runs at 272W.

I apologize if this isn't formatted correctly or I am missing key information.

Thank you.

Ok mate now some more specs would be helpful but in the meantime just how did you get back to 7 from 10 because you are just one of many who report issues after doing so.

Personally I do a complete wipe of the drive before I reinstalled 7 after using 10 on my machines as I have a feeling that remnants of the 10 are left after the 7 is reinstated.

are you connected to a battery backup by any chance? Also, check your CPU temperatures when running games/apps that can generate some heat.
