Unexpected Shut-downs - Error 6008?

Q: Unexpected Shut-downs - Error 6008?

So, I've nosed around on quite a few forums and web pages to try and figure out why my computer is randomly shutting off and/or rebooting itself. At first i thought it was the hard drive... it was having issues before so my husband and I replaced it and did a fresh install of Windows Vista Ultimate - all SP's are up to date. Well, that didn't fix the problem.

It seems no matter what I am doing, the computer will do what it wants. Sitting on facebook - boom.. screen goes black and computer stops. I have to hit the reset button on the case. Same thing happens if i'm streaming TV from the internet, playing medium-grade graphics video games or just letting it sit idle.

Is it possibly the graphics card? No. The hubby and I swapped it into his computer for a week-long test. He had no issues.

This problem just started about a month ago and I have had Vista since last year. I only re-installed the OS last weekend when i got the new HDD. It wasn't a virus, it wasn't adware...

I can't figure out what the problem is. The even log pulled up the Error 6008 and after a few hours of searching the web and seeing nothing but posts pertaining to ME or 2k3 OS's... I'm loosing patience.

Here is a copy of the last Event error. Any and all help is welcome. Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Unexpected Shut-downs - Error 6008?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am having the exact problem. Interestingly, it happened for the first time while I was actually AT the computer a couple hours ago while I was trying to reply to your message. I now believe it to be a power supply issue in my case.

Some things I had tried before this latest shutdown.

I had previously turned off the auto reboot so if there was a crash, I could see any BSOD and any error messages. I never ever got a BSOD but every time the computer shutdown, I would be at the login screen. This is exactly what happens if I were to manually turn off the computer without actually shutting it down.

I had run chkdsk, sfc and all the other things I could think of to be sure it wasn't a file issue. I hadn't installed anything new in weeks so I was pretty sure it wasn't a software issue.

I run a distributed computing program that keeps my CPU running at maximum. I have software to monitor the CPU temps and they never get above 57oC so that shouldn't be a problem. This Acer, as it turns out, has a crappy little 220 watt power supply. My UPS shows that, when the program is running, it is supplying 180 watts of power but that includes the monitor. Turning off the program drops the power consumption by 55 watts. I believe this has overtaxing the power supply and it is now randomly shutting off after four months of this heavy use perhaps due to damage caused by strain. This thought is further strengthened as, during this last failure, it was beginning a restart and it shut down immediately again during the POST operation. I then let it cool for a couple minutes and it worked fine.

I have turned off the 'high power' program and I will see if the computer runs properly for a couple days. If it does, that should confirm the diagnosis and I will go get a new and BIGGER power supply.

I hope this may help you. Could you please reply if it does OR you discover YOUR problem?

I have been having repeated Unexpected Shutdowns i.e. event id 6008 in the last few months. About 14 in the last 30 days. I have been googling like crazy without being able to figure out a solution.

The problem increased after my system crashed during the middle of a Windows Update few weeks back. When I tried Windows Update again after a few weeks, my system was unusable - became very slow & I had to force restart everytime.

Tried System restore as a first option in Safe Mode, that didnt work.

I downloaded Windows Update System Readiness tool couple of days back, it applied a few fixes & the system is now usable. But it continues to crash at random, & I get the message "Unexpected Shut Down" etc

I looked up minidump files there is nothing for the past few months.

Note this 6008 event happens only when the system is idle, almost never when the system is being used.

Event Viewer info of the last unexpected Shutdown is given below

Yesterday, I have tried opening my G50-70 laptop, I heard the built-in fan roll, I saw light on my keyboard, but the screen won't just turn on.. It stays there fully black, so I tried removing the battery , the charger and my (external) mouse and leaving them for a while, I put them back in and open it later on and it is all fine.. I used it for merely 10 minutes (Battery was about 60% charged) and it just SHUTS OFF immediately without any warning and the screen won't turn on when opened... again, so I do the same thing that I have did before but waited a little longer,  and it worked with me till I closed it, and went back to sleep.
 
The next day it worked out for some time, then it shuts off the same way it did before, I try plugging the charger is disbelief and I find out there is no light coming from the laptop to indicate that it is charging, and when I tried opening it this time, it didn't start AT ALL, so I removed the battery AGAIN and wait then put it back.. The laptop opens,  but suddenly shuts down before I enter my password.. so I'm pretty much stuck in a paradox, any help is appreciated...
 
Right now as I am typing this.. the laptop opened and didn't shut down for 5 whole minutes, but is liable to  any second.. please help
 
NOTE : The battery, the laptop with all its parts, and the charger with the AC adapter all are bought together, aka They are bought in one, original box

Hi all, attached is my PC. I am having a reoccurring problem with my PC where it displays a blue screen after giving me no indication of a problem. One error message in the blue screen is "kmode exception_not handled (bwcW8x64.sys)".
When I look at my crash logs and try to look for a solution, it searches and can't find a solution.
I am a designer and use revit, photoshop, sketchup, autocad, etc. I don't think my software is causing the problem, because I've had a crash even with only my email open.

Thanks for reading!

XP Prof keeps shutting down the moment the system starts up
Hello,

I am running Windows XP Professional on my desktop. It is most likely to be SP2 (but I am unable to confirm that as of now).

The problem started yesterday afternoon - with windows trying to shut itself down. All the open programmes would give a notification - for example, firefox would ask if I want it to remember all tabs etc. I was able to defer shut down a couple of times by clicking 'Cancel' when a programme's notification popped up (I did so in Winamp and in Auto CAD)

A bit later, it would shut down all the programmes by itself too. And then log of windows and shut down.

And now, windows will not boot normally. Keeping F8 pressed, however, turns it on and takes me to the screen where I can choose from:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with (something-else)

Enable boot logging
Enable VGA mode
Last known good config

Directory Services Restore Mode
Disable Auto restart on System Failure
Normally

I tried running in Safe Mode and attempted to then start a System Restore. But within a minute of it logging in with Safe Mode, windows shut down again. I also tried Disable Auto Restart on System Failure, but that didnt change any symptoms.
I am writing this from another machine. And I do no have a bootable windows CD.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Kunal

A:Windows XP unexpected shut downs

It sounds like you have a malware infection. Some software is calling the routines to shut down windows.

Edit: Is this a laptop? Do you have a low battery and a failing power cord? If there is a break in your power while on a low battery it could be set to shut itself down... but i didnt think it would do that in safe mode.

I don't believe I've updated any software recently. Is there someone out there who'd be willing to take a look at my specs and try to come up with what the problem is?

Thanks,

In the last week or so my computer is begun acting stranger than usual. Internet explorer often shuts down unexpectedly, and one of those maleviolent anti-virus install pop-ups took over the screen. Moreover, when I checked the IE add-ons I found a whole bunch i didn't recognize and while I could disable them, i can't delete them. They are metastreamctl class (viewpoint) and move networks. I ran adaware by lavasoft and didn't find anything. I also had a problem downloading a program off a cd-rom, but don't know if it is a issue of compatibility with vista (maybe 2000 and xp only?) I was going to use combo fix, but i don't want to without someone more experienced than I.

I was thinking at first that the shutdown may have been due to overheating as my build is ITX and pretty cramped.  Another forum mod suggested I post here to find out whether or not my system is infected, to rule that out, seeing as how I have been running without any AV software.  I was under the impression that if I browsed carefully, I would avoid problems.  I will be getting software after we determine if there is anything wrong; I wanted to keep the PC as close to the state it was in from the time it shut off so i have not installed any or scanned anything as of now.  Please see link to other post for full story.

A:Freezing because of an unexpected error event id 6008

There are many reasons why a PC " behaves" this way.

These annoying " gliches" may be caused by an overloaded hard drive, overworked CPU, Malware, running 2 AV 's, unnecessary data, Browser addons or you may have unnecessary programs running in the background etc....

* Have you experienced a BSOD?

Last night i noticed by PC decided to randomly shut down but didnt think much of it as thought it might be something i scheduled and forgot but 30 mins ago it happened again - so first thing i done was scan with Malwarebytes which found nothing and also done a scan with Microsoft Security Essentials and nothing found

This has been happening periodically for several weeks It doesn't happen every day so I have been just restarting and continuing on. It seems to happen when the desktop is not even being used. (i.e. middle of the night). Power settings are to never sleep. I've been running core temp because somewhere I saw that it might be related to a thermal event, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am not seeing much in the event log other than the event 6008, unexpected shutdown (with no other details). I am not getting bSOD minidumps either in the c:\windows\minidumps folder even though I do have this setup in system security. I've attached the dump files so hope that one of you can help me take a look to see if you can help me to figure it out. The last 6008 was earlier today around 2 AM PDT. Right now I am running chkdsk to see if that turns up anything. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

The past 2 days my laptop has been shutting down whenever it feels like it. Out of nowhere it just turns off, no Blue screen or anything. All eventvwr gives me is "kernel-power error". Minidump folder is not created. When I tried running a chkdsk my laptop would freeze during the 10 second countdown. I could not exit the countdown. I tried going through bios but my laptop shut off while in bios. It also shut off randomly while I ran the rescue disk.

Quote:

Your machine has a hardware problem. Further software troubleshooting is unfortunately pointless until the underlying hardware-level defect is resolved. It may be an outright broken bit of componentry, or it could be insufficient cooling due to dust buildup or the fan being blocked by placement.

The event you posted is only a side-effect of the unexpected power down event. In other words, it's not the cause, it's just Windows noticing that something "bad" happened just then to knock out the machine without a clean shutdown.

Since it's only two months old, the computer is presumably still under warranty. If that's the case, once you've ruled out insufficient cooling I'd strongly advise you to contact HP and to seek a replacement. My suggestion would be to stay away from stories of what happens while in Windows, and to focus their tech's attention on the fact that the machine has powered itself down unexpectedly while in the BIOS. That is entirely indicative of a hardware problem and it cannot be solved by anything they may ask you to change in Windows.

I'm doing a new build, I've got a Asus M4A77TD Pro, Athlon II Quad Core, Radeon HD 4850, and 2 sticks of G.Skill DDR3. I have a 500W Antec TruPower from my previous machine.

I got it all together tonight (after realizing the 500GB SATA HDD that I ordered was DOA, so I used a 160 GB IDE drive). In any case, I was plugging along happily, and the machine just turned itself off. It wouldn't turn back on until I turned the PSU off and all standby power was gone from the Mobo.

For a bit, I was able to reproduce this reliably with a java program that I use. It loads some fairly high-resolution graphics, and PC would shut down every time.

Shortly after that, I realized I hadn't hooked both molex connectors to the 2-molex to 6-pin adapter that GFX had provided. I hooked it back up, fired up Win7, and loaded my Java program with no issues. Yay, I thought. However, when I was downloading Steam and fiddling around on Stardock's website, it died on me again.

So, I've got 3 possible issues, and no way that I can think of to test them:

1) GFX's documentation says they don't support the 2-molex to 6-pin adapter for their video cards, even though they provided one in the package (!). Could this be an issue? (plus it's pushing a 19" and a 22" LCD)

2) Is my PSU underpowered, or could it have lost some oomph over the last few years of use? I just push the above hardware, mouse, keyboard, and a 1TB mybook (which has a separate power sup... Read more

I run a virus check multiple times and eliminated all traces of malware on my computer and the problem still continued.I then noticed the display would go black with the backlight on and still no responses from any input ,even the power button. Ive always used HD sentinel to check the health of my external and internal HDDs with recently checking to see my internal HDD health dropped from 100% to 94%. Sentinel still shows that the performance is 100% healthy as well as stable temperatures observed. This drop was cause by bad sectors found on the HDD and I set a negative index on the bad sectors from 8 to -8 to fix this and my HDD health rose from 94% to 99%. Still I could see the same performance problems. I finally ran a surface test and it showed 1 out of 9999 sectors on the drive were bad.

Problem solved. The network card was haulting operations due to the Itunes update I installed recently.

I uninstalled the Mobile support only and the problem was no more. Id advice trying to uninstall Itunes after June 2016 update to fix this if your computer has similar problems.

Hi -

Most of the 11 BSODs list NVIDIA video as the probable cause.

1. Update your NVIDIA video drivers -

Code:

nvlddmkm.sys Tue Mar 16 22:00:40 2010 (4BA037C8)
nvBridge.kmd Tue Mar 16 21:31:37 2010 (4BA030F9)

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

Hello I have been troubleshooting my laptop computer problems for awhile now and I was searching the internet with no avail.
 
Firstly I own a HP 8710W Laptop with WIndows 7 Pro 64bit that uses the NVIDIA Quadro FX1600 M Graphics Driver.
 
My computer for some reasons unexpectedly shuts down. Sometimes my mouse disappears and I thought it had something to do with my memory, which I scanned and had no issues, neither with the hard drive. It then goes in start up repair repeatedly, finding no issues. Yet for some reason once it runs it, I am able to log into Windows, but only after the start up repair runs and finds no issues. I tried to do the start up loop registry fix, and even tried to use the Windows 7 disc to repair and nothing seems to work. Also note, SFC /scannow finds no issues as well. I then end up figuring it may have something to do with Windows Update. And I end up receiving this error shown in the screen shot. Note my brother has the same make and model and running the windows diagnostic it finds no issues. I am unable to figure out why these issues are happening. Does anyone else have any ideas and solutions for the fix? Thanks.
 
Note: I also have uploaded my error log files as well.

i'm having a real issue my laptop, it just powers off for no reason. i mean no BSOD, no overheating, i don't even have to touch it and boom just shuts down. i'm running vista (i know hold your applause) and i see a little triangle in the system tray with an exclamation point in it, when i cursor over it the message reads "MSASCui.exe - Corrupt Disk". but it seems like i have 5-10min max before the system powers off, which means i can't run chkdsk or any other system scans. this was my FINAL straw with vista so i grabbed my xp disk and started the countdown. i was right at the blue screen about to format it all, but knowing my luck it would power down mid-format, so i was going to let the computer idle for about 30min. and i was right, 8min in and blank screen! so if i can't run a scan, and i cant even wipe the machine WTF am i supposed to do?! any and all suggestions are welcome.

Hi everyone!

I'm facing a weird problem with Win7. For the past 2 months my Win7 is shutting down automaticly. I've change my intire computer and installed the OS in a new HD and the problem remains. The shutting downs happens ONLY during the night (09:30pm - 06:00am).
I've reviwed the Task Schedule searching for some event and I found it 5 events (in attached).

I've changed the time schedule to 02:30pm, but nothing has happened. The pc has worked normally.

I saw in the log a lot of Kernel-Power events - The kernel power manager has initiated a shutdown transition / The operating system is shutting down at system time ?2017?-?07?-?01T14:00:41.313408400Z - and I don't know if this is the bad guy who is making my
pc shutting down.
Well, I need help =)

Good Day Doctors,
I'm helping my friend with his HP pavilion laptop. It turns off randomly. While looking at it for an hour I notice it turning off and than rebooted.

Could it be set to restart within an hour?

Please let me know what to look for or test to run.
This system has: Win XP home,pentium 4, 3.00ghz,384 ram

Thanx in advance
Steve

With a laptop, my first thought would be heat.

What are the system temps?

Have you cleaned the intake/exhaust vents with air?

Does the laptop do the same thing on battery power and AC?

Does it do the same thing in safe mode?

My Computer is randomly shuting down. No common cause. seems that I have a lot of programs running in the background using a lot of memory space.

I've been using just the XP firewall and e-trust realtime monitoring.

Actually the only time it seems to be shuting down is when we try to run to many programs or high memory demanding programs.

So here is the problem. I am playing a browser game called Wartune on r2 site and lately my PC just shuts down after some time on their site, sometimes after 4-5mins, sometimes after an hour. First I thought it was some sort of a hardware problem since I had a hdd that failed recently, but this kept happening even on another hdd i'm using now. Cleaned registry, reinstalled windows numerous times, changed from 7 to xp and still have the problem, but ONLY when I'm on that site and looks like only when it's an active tab, if I'm on other site no problem at all. Recently I saw a brief pop-up message after a system start saying lsass.exe is failing. Google search gave me a have basic idea what this file is for, but why I keep getting this error even after I make a new win instalation on a fresh formated hdd?

Hi inm,

A friend of mine had a similar problem with his XP, he tried reinstalling the windows and doing everything he can but nothing worked. Then here is what we did, and apparently it solved the problem.
I booted the system with BartPE and opened regedit.
I imported the hive "C:\windows\system32\config\software"
I located the following key: Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows
I renamed the string value "AppInit_DLLs" to "AppInit_DLLs.old"
I created a new string value called "AppInit_DLLs" with no entries.
I then unloaded the registry hive and rebooted.

This technique does not require BartPE, any offline registry editing tool should work. Also remember to backup the original C:\windows\system32\config directory before making changes.

If the issue was caused by malware, remember to boot into safe mode or the malicious entries may be added back into the registry when you login.

Refer to the following for additional information:
Windows registry information for advanced users (registry information)
How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting (registry recovery)
Bart's Preinstalled Environment (BartPE) bootable live windows CD/DVD (bartPE site)
How to edit the registry offline using BartPE boot CD ? (example of offline registry editing)
Working with the AppInit_DLLs registry value (AppInit_Dlls Information)

Hope this would help.

I have an EMachine with windows XP that is less than two years old and it keeps shutting down. It will start up normally, and then it just turns off, sometimes it takes a few minutes, other times it lasts for 20 minutes. The screen goes blank and goes into it's "power saving mode" and the sound from the computer running stops, but the light on the keyboard and tower are still on. Any ideas on what could be causing it? I have Norton and it is up to date, and it doesn't say that there is a virus...

My computer just turns off on its own, for no reason. At first I thought it might be a loose connection, but I checked all of them. And also, when I restart it, it starts up normally, not doing its checks if it were shut down imporperly. Could this be a virus? It sometimes doesnt even let everything load onto my computer when i start it up before it just shuts off. very aggrevating!

Hello and thanks for taking the time to help me.

My computer has been turning off on its own for a while now and while i have an idea what might be causing the problem i'd still like you guys to give me your ideas and advices. I run speed fan and the readings i get are perfectly normal, every temperature is below 40 C and so i dont think its windows shutting down from over heat, it would'nt make sense.

Here are my system specs;

Intel core 2 duo CPU6300 @ 1.86GhZ
ATI radeon 5770 EAHcore Asus video card
MIOS KY-550ATX power supply
2 GB Kingston DDR2 RAM

Now the reason why i bolded the power supply is because i think that its what's causing the problem, im not sure wether its 450W or 550W and since its a cheap power supply i cant find any info on the web.

Here are the voltage readings from my SpeedFan software:
Vcore : 1.20V
+12V : 11.99V
AVcc : 3.41V

Do you guys think its the power supply, is there anything wrong with these readings? and if there isnt, what do you think the problem might be?

Again, thanks for your time, i'll be checking on the thread very often so expect quick replies on my part.

Having built computers for quite some time now, this is by far the oddest problem I've run into, and of course, I've encountered it on my main (expensive) home system.

I came home from school one day to find my computer woudn't load past a certain spot after the windows loading screen. I would get a full black screen with just the cursor, which I could move. I found the same deal when I loaded my computer in safe mode. I wasn't sure whether the problem was hardware or software so I put in my Windows CD and repaired my Windows installation. This allowed me to have a functioning windows. But that wasn't the total fix, some problems remained.

The Symptoms:
I had other problems before that that are leaving me puzzled. Even before I got to the point where Windows wouldn't load, in WoW and other games like Oblivion I had been experiencing graphical problems like artifacts and tearing and even having the whole game world in Oblivion go black, and just the menus remain. This led me to believe it was some sort of software issue such as drivers, but I had graphical errors and artifacts even in the Windows loading screen itself which led me to believe it was my graphics card. I even updated my video card and directx drivers and no dice. I put in another hard drive and got the same errors on the DOS menus.

That wasn't just it. I've also had my computer randomly shut itself down a few times, leading me to believe it could also be a power supply i... Read more
