Error 6008 - PSU / OS / Hardware ?

Q: Error 6008 - PSU / OS / Hardware ?

Ok, so I have had my Dell Studio 1555 for almost 2 years now. So far it has run without any problems at all. However, lately it just started crashing during games. I tried several games like SC2, CS, MW2, WoW, etc. It has crashed both during some very intense moment, and while simply just staying in one place doing almost nothing.

The shutdown is a complete "shutdown", no BSOD, no error message, nothing, suddenly the laptop just goes completely off. I have the option for auto-restart when crashing turned ON, but nothing happens when it crashes. When I start it up, I get the "WIndows experienced unexpected shutdown" and that's pretty much it.

I run licensed MalwareBytes and Kaspersky, the system IS clean, no viruses, trojans, etc.

I looked extensively through Google and the most common "accepted" solution was that it was a PSU fault. I basically looked for "Error 6008"(that is what the "Event Viewer" says, nothing else btw, just "The shutdown at X date Y time was unexpected."

And here lies the kicker - I have bought a brand new PSU from Dell and it's causing the same "crash". HOWEVER, if the battery is full and I run only on it, there is 0(ZERO) crashes. Nada.

I have all the latest updates from Dell's webpage(using the service tag under the laptop) and I don't have any unlicensed software or anything like that.

I have also ran the Dell integrated Diagnostics for HDD/Memory and they all came out empty. My temps are quite low mostly because I am using a cooler under my laptop, so it cant be overheating either(overheating was another suggestion for "error 6008").

So what could possible be causing an error when the PSU is connected and not when its running on battery? Both PSUs look fine, I haven't had any trouble with them, never changed one before either.

What I should possibly notice, is that since I bought the laptop, I am almost always running on AC and almost never on battery. But the new PSU should rule that out as a reason?

I am also attaching a DxDiag.txt to this post, hopefully it will give you the information you need.

If you need any more information regarding anything let me know, I just NEED to sort this out!

ps. I just figured out something extra, not sure if it will have any effect tho - the whole crashing started after I put Kaspersky on the PC, is there any way that could be causing an "unexpected shutdown"?

Thank you in advance!

Preferred Solution: Error 6008 - PSU / OS / Hardware ?

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.)

Hello mates!

i've a really serious problem and iam clueless as to the problem

i bought new parts(06/17/12) and build a new pc and i recycled some parts from the old pc

as i wrote in my specs
1.new asus mobo
2.new intel cpu 3570k
3.new psu corsair 750tx
4.new chassis lancooler pc-k63
5.16GB RAM g.skill

i used from my old pc
1.my gpu ati 4770 hd
2.2 hard drives [1.ssd 60gb 2.2TB WD caviar green]
the WD HD went to hell because of bad sectors(1444 to be exact)
but iam getting ahead of myself

here is the problem
about 2 weeks ago the pc started to suddenly restart
it happened without a warning while the pc was in idle mode
it just went POOF and started to restart himself several times but after 2 seconds restarted again and again and again in a non-stopping cycle

i shut down the pc waited a few minutes and plugged the psu cable again
this time the pc started loading fine but at the BIOS menu an alert showed saying
asus anti-surge was triggered.. i thought that maybe the cpu had over-heated or something of the sort
so i entered BIOS mode but saw that the temp were low
27C and the mobo was on energy saver mode
before i could do anything else the pc crashed again and started the endless restart cycle
after re-shutting it and pulling the cable out i tried to disconnect everything
i removed the WD HD, the gpu, the RAM, and re-plugged them all one by one
first the ram then the gpu
then i started the pc and everything worked out perfectly
i then re-connected the HD and saw on h... Read more

I get an Event Error 6008 on my desktop that I personally built. When the weather was cooler the computer ran fine. Now that it is summer time (I live in CA and its about 100 outside and 80ish in the house) it shuts down when I'm running high resource stuff such as games and multi-tasking if I don't use a 6inch room fan to blow are directly into the case. I also got a pretty beefy head sink and fan for the CPU and that didn't solve the problem. Any advice?

A:Event Error 6008

it's my guess one component is generating more heat than the others.
First up would be graphics card.
If you can figure out which component is pushing the most heat you can direct your airflow a bit better, beyond that I don't really know.

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.

Hi there,

I have been seeking some help regarding this issue for some time now, but it's getting worse and worse and I have just no idea how to fix it. To be fair, the issue is deeply frustrating, mainly because there's no correlation in the freezes to be able to exclude it easily

The issue has started a month or two back. It all started from kind of like magenta lines on the monitor, which would freeze games and crash them. Later however, I received the message that the 307.XX driver of my NVIDIA GTX 560 card stopped working. It turned out I just had to use Driver Sweeper and install these drivers again. Problem long gone.

However, few days after that issue, my system froze. And it froze again... and again, until the point where it does it twice a day. Really, there's no correlation in the freezes. Once, it didn't freeze for 4 days, the other time it could crash up to three times a day, like today. Upon every startup after the freeze, the event viewer shows an Error 6008.

Like I said, the freezes have no pattern. The system freezes during browsing, playing games, watching films on YouTube, the sound just goes silent without any crackle and there's nothing you can do apart from pressing the power button on the PC. It's extremely frustrating.

I have previously had the system overclocked from 3.4GhZ to 4.5GhZ with temps at idle ranging 35-40 degrees, to 100% load max. at 65-70 deg, however after the issue occurred, I decided to return to the stock speed. I have the follow... Read more

A:Error 6008 Computer Freeze

Well, Error 6008 just means unexpected shutdown, did you find anything else while going through event viewer? Also what is the temperature of your graphics card on average? Sometimes components will shut down to protect themselves from overheating damage, since your GPU is overclocked, it could be a factor, especially if you don't clean out the heatsink fins every now and then.

It started when I was playing Dishonored when a brownout came. I opened my pc in safe mode, looked to my event viewer (i usually do it when a brownout came to my PC to check for errors) then saw unexpected shutdown error. I Did nothing there, then rebooted my PC. Then after reboot, played again dishonored but the save logs got naming problems. I played a while then exited to windows. But after that i saw my rocketdock got frozen. Opened event viewer but nothing weird. Did a reboot and error ID 6008 popped out in the event viewer... I tried to fix it by going maintenance and fix error but no errors... and searching for possible solutions... came to a thread here and made a system restore on the time before i install my dishonored and while on safe mode.(i was persistent on fixing the error 6008, cuz i dont want pc probs) Reboot and a dialogue appears saying this "System restoration could not be done. Computer files and programs has NOT been changed. Information: A unknown error occured during system restore.

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.

Hi Snaski.

It is some display/graphics related issue.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Let us see a screenshot of the furmark window, just before you close it.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Hi,
For the past 3 days each time I start my PC I am seeing an Event Viewer entry 6008 which relates to the PC having shut down unexpectedly (even though it has not). There is also an associated Event 41 which relates to re starting after an unexpected shutdown.

The PC is working properly, and each of the shutdowns have been done via the Power/shutdown option, in other words, the shutdowns were not unexpected.

The only thing I can recall changing was to install the latest nVidia driver about the time this started. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Rob.

Hey all,

I work for the United States Air Force as a Client Systems Technician stationed in Germany.

I was wondering if you would help me with a little dilemma.

There is a computer here, Dell Precision T7500, and it randomly blue screens about 6 times a day. There is no Stop Error code showing either.

I was thinking maybe it was the way it was plugged in. Here is how it is:

The computer is plugged into a UPS that is new just like the computer, the UPS is plugged into a power converter (Germany is 220V and the UPS is 110V), and that transformer is rated at 1000Watts, and that is plugged into the wall.

Do you think the computer is losing power randomly or the power supply is causing an issue? I'm sure it's not losing power completely obviously because of the blue screen.

Thanks a lot for all your help.

Also, do you think that overheating would be an issue? Would there be anything that would explain to me that the computer is overheating? Thanks again.

About a month ago I built a new pc. Everything was running at great temps(no overclock). I use HW Monitor to look at the temps. I ran Memtest86 for about 3-4hrs with no errors and ran Prime95 for about 6-7hrs and never went above 55C on stock cooling(no failures). In the span of two weeks, I have had three BSODs. All were regarding a file for my video card (atikmpag.sys). I ran driver sweep in safe mode and reinstalled the latest drivers for my card. I checked the reliability report and it keeps giving me errors regarding unexpected shutdown - Event ID 6008. I have no idea what is causing this. I click on the details in event log and there are none. I did a reinstall of windows and it keeps happening. The 6008 events did start occurring BEFORE the BSOD's if that helps. After i reformatted with windows, I have had no more BSOD's so far, but 6008 is still happening almost every time I shutdown. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

All were regarding a file for my video card (atikmpag.sys). I ran driver sweep in safe mode and reinstalled the latest drivers for my card. I checked the reliability report and it keeps giving me errors regarding unexpected shutdown - Event ID 6008. I have no idea what is causing this. I click on the details in event log and there are none. I did a reinstall of windows and it keeps happening. The 6008 events did start occurring BEFORE the BSOD's if that helps. After i reformatted with windows, I have had no more BSOD's so far, but 6008 is still happening almost every time I shutdown. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


We need both the event iD (6008) and the source (?????). ID 6008 just means an unexpected shutdown. Can be from heat, someone force quitting, or anything else.

Every time I shutdown or restart on boot Event Viewer writes an administrative error in the log "Source: EventLog Event ID: 6008 The previous system shutdown at <time> on <date> was unexpected."

I do of course shut down properly, i.e... Start> Shutdown or Restart.

I've done a good deal of searching but, most of what I've found involves this error following a BSOD/Bug Check which I am not experiencing and after which of course this error would be expected.

I did find this Event ID 6008 is unexpectedly logged to the System event log after you shut down and restart your computer which seems to describe the problem and offers a hotfix but, does not apply to Windows 7. I can find no correlating hotfix for Windows 7.

The computer runs fine. I have no crashes or other problems and shut downs/restarts appear to happen in an orderly fashion. Had I not noticed it in the event log I wouldn't even be thinking about it.

System is a Dell Dimension 8400 3.2 Ghz. P4 w/ 4GB RAM (~3 useable) and ample disk space. Display adapter is an NVIDIA 8400 GS with the latest drivers. All other drivers are up-to-date and BIOS version is the latest available from Dell. Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Basically I'm looking for someone who has a ready solution and short of that I'm inclined to ignore it as it does not appear to effect operation. You know how those red flags in Event Viewer tend to grate.

TIA for taking the time to read my post.

Hoping someone can help me. I am having problems running games. This problem is coming up quite often the last week. During certain games my pc just reboots. No blue screen, just a crash to black screen and a restart following that. I have re-installed my graphics drivers so that shouldn't be the problem right? I ran speccy and mini toolbox as was requested from a user with the same problem a while ago. Thanks for taking a look anyways.

Hii all, im new in this forum, soo plzzz dont be angry on me if i dont see other post for this event.
I have problem with this event all the time. Computer freezes before it is heard through the speakers as a slightly hre?čanje and the image on the monitor light blinks and halts, freezes. The only solution is hard reset. The system is newly loaded, the new HD and power supply, I tested the RAM and shows no errors. The motherboard is new. Graphic card I tested with the stress test, 8 am and the computer did not freeze. As I am not a computer expert, ask for the most simple instructions or help, and also English is not just the level but I found myself.
I followed the instructions in a particular forum and included the following;

I have searched everywhere for a solution to this. Microsoft just ignores it. Does anyone know how to fix it.
 
This occurs on start up: Event Id 6008 "The previous shutdown was unexpected (time and date)" 
 
Thank you.

A:event id 6008 without solution anywhere

That message should be automatically generated after any unexpected shutdown/power loss.
 
It's routine, there is no "solution" for the message and, in some cases, the unexpected (by Windows) shutdown should be investigated.

That is an Event Viewer log message that appears after the system restarts and usually refers to a BSOD.

Please follow these instructions and we'll see if the output yields any clues -

Download these 2 files; save both to My Documents -

- Microsoft SysInternals AutoRuns - http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

- System file collection app - http://sysnative.com/0x8/BSOD_XP_v1....iff2_PROD_.exe

Go to My Docs and run the 2nd app. It will run the 1st.

Output = newly created folder in My Docs - TSF_XP_Support

Zip up the entire folder and attach to next post.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.

Hi everyone,

I have encountered hangs and sound jammed while i was playing music and sleeping. It had happened over 4 nights so i decided to find a solution. I explored abit and found out from another forum that i need to update on my driver so i did, updated my realtek audio and network drivers. On the 2 following day, i finally did not encounter anymore hangs and sound jammed while sleeping. The music will just run as per normal. So i decided to let it have a final run and went out. However, when i reached him home, i found out my desktop hanged again, sound jammed, with yellowish and pinkish purple squares near to the sides of the monitor. I took a glimpse at the time and it was 2.39pm, which had jammed for 6 hours when i reached home at 8.30pm.

I took a restart and went to take a look at the event viewer and found out i have new error which is:

Hi,

I've been getting random BSOD. It can happen multiple times a day to one in three days.

Just some misc info, My gpu is EVGA 670 that is around 5 years old. I used to get a lot more bsod but what really helped was downclocking it from its original OC (it is an SC version). I used MSI Afterburner for this and I set coreclock to -300 and memory clock to -100. I used to get BSOD 5 times a day when it was in my old system. Ever since the downclock it hasn't been crashing as much.

Now I have it in a newly built system. It may or may not be due to the GPU.

- Windows 10 64-bit (original install)
- full retail version (although, it was a "system-builder" version)
- Everything is less than a month old except my HDD (used for storage) and my GPU. The HDD and GPU are both 5-6 years old?
- I have not re-installed the OS

- Intel i7-8700K
- EVGA GTX 670
- Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7
- EVGA Supernova 850W G3 (gold)

Thank-you in advance for any help.

A:Vista sp2 Event ID:6008 PC Crash Help

NOTE: I have severe eye problems. If I do not respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance.

Perfmon relates only 13% free space on D: drive - this is OK if it's the Recovery drive and you don't use it for anything else.

No memory dumps present in the uploaded files

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) is known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems - but we don't have a bunch of experience with it on Vista systems. I'd suggest uninstalling it TEMPORARILY, and using this free tool to ensure that the sptd.sys driver is removed from your system: DuplexSecure - FAQ

Other than the above, I'm at a loss to explain your crashes. If you'd like to find out more about it, please try the procedure listed here: Generating a memory dump for a crashing process - Windows 7 Forums

Another option is to:
- backup your data
- use the recovery partition to reinstall Windows on your system (it will wipe out everything!).

Most times a pc shutting down is due to an over heating issues. I am not saying that is your problem but to eliminate that hypothesis clean out all dust from inside your machine with a can of compressed air. You can get a can of air at your local Walmart. If you have a laptop clean out all air vents on the sides and bottom of your laptop. Keep the laptop elevated off of couch and bed like surfaces. Consider getting a cooling pad.

Hi,

I have recently encounter computer hangs and sound jammed when im asleep playing music from the computer. After getting help from another forum, i updated on my realtek audio and network drivers and finally, it was the first time that my computer could continue to run after i woke up, continuing playing the music. I wanted to make sure that there would be no more problems so i let it run for another day, just playing music and went to sleep. This morning, again everything was fine so i decide to give it a final run and went out.

However, when i reached home, i found out my computer had hung for about 6 hours with the sound jammed. There are also yellow or pinkish purple squares near to the sides of the monitor during the hang. I restart and took a look at the event viewer and found the following error message:

Hi guys, I have a problem where my PC is set to sleep after an hour although constantly I will return hom/wake up and go to use my computer to have it not wake from sleep. All that will happen is the mouse will illuminate for around 3 seconds and then it will go dead as well as the rest of my computer. Then when I go to switch the PC on by the power button the keyboard will flash only some of the buttons once very quickly then the PC will just not go on unless I remove the plug from the PSU and basically remove all power and start again. I have recently found that if I hold the power button (the setting which would normally shut my PC down when running) the PC will boot but hang at the ASROCK splash screen until I hit reset and then she's away. I have no issues during the use of my PC and this has become a small problem that has reoccured to the point where I am going mad.
 
I found this person had a similar issue but finding answers online for PC is like searching google for cancer symtoms, just a road to nowhere sometimes... sometimes, there is a chance I might still have cancer!

A:Event 6008: Reoccuring issue with computer

Doing a hard shutdown can result in corrupt files, I would not do this if there is any other option.  Because you have been doing hard shutdowns you should run sfc /scannow.
 
Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and choose Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 

 
Type in sfc /scannow and then press Enter to start the scan.  Please notice the space between sfc and the /scannow.
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
 
To find sfc /scannow log, type cmd in the Search programs and files box. 
 
cmd will appear above the search box under Apps., right click on it and choose Run as administrator, this will open the Elevated Command Prompt.  This will look simlar to the image above.

Okay, for the past 3 days my laptop has automatically shutdown twice.
My laptop is at least 6 years old and it never acted like this before in his lifetime.
Can anyone tell me what's causing it?

Things to keep in mind are:
- I keep my laptop open usually 24/7
- I don't think it's a virus cause I've never changed my way of using it for the past years and I scan often and it all returned negative (virus, malware, spyware)
- No hardware/software changes so everything is at it's version of when it was working (I don't update)
- Not a heat problem. I monitor my system temperature and it was 65-75?C at the time of shutdown

I've attached the eventlog during shutdown too if that will help.

Thanks!

Hello.

Truly hoping the fine folks of this forum can help me solve the mystery of the random shutdowns. I guess I'd be considered an average+ Windows user and have explored this forum in depth but didn't find quite the same issues as others.

Basically, I'm experiencing random shutdowns. Usually happens when watching youtubes/videos. Or, if no video, then on a page in IE that refreshes content after the page is loaded (ex: using the # search feature on Twitter.com). There is no BSOD - the computer just shuts down with no warning.

So far I have:
- run CCleaner & Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
- deleted Flash completely and have not re-installed
- run sfc /scannow with no integrity violations
- explored the possibility of COM Surrogate DLLHost.exe trouble - and therefore run Process Monitor, set the filter to include DLLHost.exe and stopped running after 125,000+ events by 1% complete
- took a look at the Event Viewer and found Critical Kernel-Power event ID 41 Task Category (63) and Error EventLog 6008. These are from today - there have been a total of 10 instances since March and 2 in November 2015.
- attached the DM Log

The computer is probably 5-6 years old and these problems have been recurring for a couple of months now. And it's maddening, as I'm sure you all know.

Any/all help with diagnosing and treating the problem(s) would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, in advance.

Hi, my computer randomly crashes at various moments. The screens just freeze but the computer keeps running. I have to hard reset every time it crashes. It used to happen very often but after removing drivers and updating them it's way less frequent. It still happens atleast once a day.

When I look at the even viewer I get these error at the moment of the crash, im not really sure what to do with these.

I searched a lot and didn't really find anything useful to fix the problem... Thank you for your time.

Hi TuCkNy.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

So there is a chance that it BSODs but crash dumps are not recorded.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

A:Random shutdowns Kernel-Power 41 (63); EventLog 6008

Did some digging. Installed Win DBG and took a look at the LiveKernel .dmp files. One showed NVlDDMKM.sys as a probable cause. So that led to a clean install of Nvidia drivers.

Fingers crossed that this is/was the trouble.

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

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.

Sounds to me like you didn't plug the floppy drive back in correctly. If the cable is backwards the drive won't work for instance.

Is the tape drive IDE or is it on the floppy controller too?

Please provide this information: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...ns-452654.html

Although you haven't mentioned any BSOD's, the info will provide us with some details so we can try to figure this out.

In general, a machine check is related to an error that's recognized by your CPU and reported to Windows. There's not usually much information in the error reports so we have to fiddle around trying to figure it out.

Most often these are either hardware problems (something's busted) or compatibility issues (either software or hardware).
