My PC shuts down immediately developing an error ID 6008

Q: My PC shuts down immediately developing an error ID 6008

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. (0xc0000022)" and I believe it was caused by and abrupt shutting down while shutting down and it had'nt brownout nor i push power buttons or pluged out from socket because it rebooted instantly. though it didnt safe moded And the error 6008 persists.

then here's the real problem now... after knowing its still there... i stumbled upon the tread where you can use system file checker tool and tried it. and also the action center submitted reports online... but when i properly reboot the PC, well it showed the checking/installing updates text... and until 30% then shuts off, monitors first, then keyboard lights then Pc fan. When it opened(to windows desktop) the graphics or the windows aero got primitive or i don't know(got corrupted i guess) and event viewer showed this both warning:

so i'm re doing the action center method again and the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to try to fix it. And doing a system virus scan... but i'm thinking of doing the system restore again with the earlier date because i've just found out that the error 6008 came few days ago on aug 8[now aug 15]. hope that will fix it. [p.s. i've installed to some softwares that exhibited problems like the foundry nuke(Faulting application name: lmgrd.foundry.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x47fe34e0) error ID 1000, then bluetooth(Faulting application name: BlueSoleilCS.exe, version: 7.0.395.0, time stamp: 0x4fba19f6) same too.

pls try to enlighten me of what is this problem...

Preferred Solution: My PC shuts down immediately developing an error ID 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'm building a pc and having several problems.

The first problem is that after I've assembled all the parts and turn on the power, the computer begins to boot and then simply shuts down. It does this repeatedly until I turn the power off.

The second problem is that the power and reset buttons on the front panel in my case don't seem to work. I have plugged in the cables to the right pins but nothing happens when I try to turn the pc on from the case buttons. I've had to use the power on button on the motherboard to try the setup (but with bad luck, as described above)

Here are the specs

Antec Nine Hundred
OCZ GameXtream 600W ATX
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB Serial-ATA
Abit IP35 Pro ATX LGA 775
Samsung SH-S203D/BEBN SATA 20X DVD+/-RW
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
Kingston HyperX 2GB 1066MHZ DDR2 CL5

This probably isn't enough info to solve the problem, but I'm looking for any suggestions that might help me test out which part or cable is the cause of this.

This computer was running fine about 4 months ago. Since then it has been in my closet. I decided to finally upgrade it to Win10. It booted up fine. I disable the GWX Control Panel and clicked the taskbar upgrade icon to start the upgrade. 5 or 10 minutes later it simply shutdown and did not restart.

I restarted manually and it managed to get to the Windows Welcome screen and then shutdown. Now when I try to restart the power LED lights up for about 1 second then shuts down again. Doesn't even get to post anything on the screen.

Any tips for this one?

I have a 6 years old or so PC, which used to work all fine.

But one day when i had to move it to a new spot, it suddenly didn't want to start up...

I am really sure that this has to do with the Motherboard, as i have tried the following, but with no avail:

Replace with new Power Supply Unit
Taking out CPU and RAM (Tried combinations and such)
Removed all other power wires, so that only the Motherboard gets power.
Taking out all other unimportant parts
Tried to replace CPU fan, same prob.
I can't really give any specs, but if you need some, please post a reply, with the required spec and i will try find out...
EDIT: Found out that i had a 1.0Ghz AMD cpu and approx. 750mb ram...

Hello all,

My homebuilt PC, which has worked fine for a couple of years, suddenly isn't working after I cleaned out the pounds of dust from inside it.

During POST process, the BIOS/RAID controller seems to identify the hard drives properly (I'm running two pairs of RAID-1 mirrored SATA drives) ...and I think it's not the drives anyway because of the last bullet-point below.

System goes through the BIOS part of the startup without problems but then either shuts down or reboots almost immediately:

* If I try to boot into windows, it shuts down after a couple seconds of the "blinking light" moving from left to right on the first Windows screen.

* If I try to boot into safe mode, it shows a long list of drivers on the screen, the last of which I believe is mup.sys, and then says at the bottom center, "press ESC to cancel loading VAX347B.sys", and then crashes. I doubt that VAX347B is the problem, however, because of the following:

* If I disconnect all hard drives from the system and boot from a Windows XP CD, it shuts down or reboots when screen says "Windows is inspecting your hardware configuration."

During the cleaning process, I removed the CPU fan, cleaned it and replaced it. Someone suggested to me that if it weren't back on exactly right, that could cause the problem so I took it off again and put it back on and the computer then worked...for two days...after which all the symptoms returned. I don&... Read more

CMOS battery probably needs changing. Also check the PSU with a tester and a multi-meter.

I switched from win 7 to win 10 about a month ago. No major problems until yesterday. The pc shuts down only a few minutes after loading windows. If i then turn it on again, it shuts down almost straight away - before it's even finished loading windows.

I tried resetting windows but it won't stay on long enough to do it. It got to 6% then shut down. I don't think it's a virus - well i have kaspersky anyway and that isn't reporting anything.

Unfortunately i can't get into safe mode on start up with win 10.

I'm at the point where i'm thinking i need to throw the pc away and buy a new one because it won't stay switched on for long enough to do anything.

Any ideas gratefully received thanks

A:Pc shuts down immediately after turning on

Welcome to the forum. Normally this is due to heat or the CPU fan not working check the fan and remove any dust from inside the pc

So I disassembled my computer recently because I saw it needed some cleaning and filter replacement. I disconnected pretty much all the cables, removed the PSU, and took the heatsink and fan off the CPU. After reassembly, the computer seems to have a pretty major issue. After I turn it on, the internal LEDs come on and the fans start up. Then, about two or three seconds later, the computer shuts off. On occasion, it will stay on for about a minute, during which time my monitor can't receive a signal (DVI).

My current setup:
Intel DQ67SW (LGA1155)
i7 2600K (LGA1155)
GTX 660 (although I'm also trying to install a new RX 580)
Corsair TX 750W
Corsair Vengeance 1x8GB & 2x4GB
Cooler Master Sniper case

After slipstreaming SP3 for Windows XP into SP2 CD, i did a fresh install on a 1.2 GHz, 512MB RAM PC. It has 2 hard disks one with 20GB other 80GB(secondary, i added later). I had repartitioned the hard disk using Seagate Disk Manager bootable cd. The computer was previously running on Windows XP SP2 with no error at all.

After installing XP, When I tried to install IE7, it gave an error after restart saying IE7 cannot be installed. The strange thing is now, after every few minutes the system shuts down suddenly, as when happens on power failure. The hard disk LED glows continually after this happens. On the system reboot, the BIOS does not recognise any of the hard disks, it hangs and hard disk LED glows continuosly.

I have done chkdsk (in the 2-3 minutes the computer is running on XP) it gives no error on 80GB secondary disk.On the primary hard disk, it says files are inuse, please schedule a scan on next startup. On scheduling thes scan, the scan on next reboot gives no error.

But the computer keeps shutting down. Mostly this happens when I try to open video stored on secondary hard disk using Media Player Classic.

Please help.

A:Windows Xp Shuts Down Immediately

Hi .The hard disk activity light probably stays on initially...because XP is configured to run a limited (3-step) version of chkdsk when hard shutdowns occur. I myself prefer to then run chkdsk /r (5-step) on the same drive when the system finally does boot.I would run chkdsk /r on each drive as a first step...and then reboot. I would run the chkdsk /r on the boot partition first, using the XP CD and Recovery Console...then try to boot.I would then run the chkdsk /r on the other drive from within XP: Start/Run/chkdsk /r, OK. To specify running chkdsk on a hard drive which I've designated as R, the command would be chkdsk R: /rWhat error messages are provided in Event Viewer that might be pertinent? EV is usually pretty good about indicating disk problems (once auto reboot on crash is disabled).Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ If it's something that chkdsk /r cannot repair, then I would move to a manufacturer's hard drive diagnostic.Louis

I see the red light for all of a second, like it's turning on when I press the power button, then nothing happens. No CPU fans or anything start during that 1 sec. Each subsequent time I press the power button NOTHING happens. If I unplug the machine and let it power cycle then it turns on for 1 second.

I was thinking it's the PSU going bad, this seem like the right thing. I have an extra one at home that I can try it with. Anyone else have any suggestions as to what it might be?

I would agree the ps is the most likely cause. One thing you want to stop right now is attempting to pw ON the system with a failed pw supply. It is highly likely that you will damage/destroy other parts of the system.

Swap in a known good pw supply and see if it works.

My HP computer shuts off the minute you turn it on. I have reseated the memory, thinking they were loose, changed the supply cord several times and put in a new battery-still shuts off right as soon as you turn it on.
Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

A:computer shuts off immediately

In all probability the shut down is related to a failed internal component. Most times it is the fan, if it is jammed full of lint it probably is the issue, or it might have just failed completely. Using canned air or the like blow in from the side, if you see lots of lint fly out the bottom or stuff flopping about in there you will need to take it apart and clean it out. Failing that replace it. If that still does not fix the issue then there is a bigger problem, like a failed CPU or Main board

Hi! My PC shuts down by itself (like it is being unplugged without any given time interval) and then immediately reboots. Sometimes the problem occurs even after a few seconds after booting.

My Desktop is Acer Aspire M1641 and it is broken (unable to boot) for about 3 years. About a month ago, I had the opportunity to brought it to a technician to fix it. The technician replaced the motherboard and the processor with a brandnew Biostar A55 MGC motherboard and a brandnew AMD A4-3300 with Radeon (tm) with HD Graphics 2.50 Ghz processor. The technician also changed the OS from Windows Vista Home Basic to Windows 7 Ultimate.

When I brought the PC home, it looks like that it is operating normally. After approximately 2 days, the problem occured (shuts down by itself "like it is being unplugged" and then immediately reboots).

"Mysearchresults" browser hijacker infected it but I cant remember if the PC's problem occured first before the infection so I cant tell if it is a factor. (By the way I fallowed the instructions here : http://www.wintips.org/remove-mysearchresults-search-toolbar/ to remove mysearchresults). After fallowing the instructions to remove mysearchresults I scanned it with Microsoft Security Essentials which turned out to be ok. To make sure, I uninstalled the Microsoft Security Essentials and installed ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 (not yet updated) and scanned it which turned out to be ok too.

A:PC Shuts Down by Itself and then Immediately Reboots

you've done a good analysis already but there are a few other things to check. cpu and mobo temp already, but what about graphics card temp? you can use gpu-z to get the gpu temp. higher than normal temp may cause this kind of problem. another possibility is with one of the device drivers. see if this auto-reboot still happens when you use windows in safe mode. safe mode bypasses normal drivers n just use basic the most basic ones to enter windows. if no reboot happens, then you know it is caused by one of the drivers. no, it's unlikely the problem with the psu, and no you don't need to reformat the hard drive cause this is not windows/software problem but more often hardware.
for general n quick fix now, you can use your seven installation disc to enter 'system recovery options' then do startup repair and windows memory diagnostic. it doesn't always address the problem but there's nothing wrong to try though. startup repair will fix problems with system files, memory diagnostic will scan the ram to make sure it's working correctly.
tell us how it goes after all these steps, the results may lead to the correct fix.

For starters, my PC stays on all the time. When I got up this morning I noticed that my Outlook Express icon was not displayed in the Taskbar where it usually is. I also have an OE icon on my desktop and tried opening it from there. It seems to open and says receiving files (although it doesn't receive any) and immediately closes down. Once I got it to stay on long enough to make sure the "Disconnect after Send/Receive" box wasn't checked, and it was not. I tried a System Restore from a previous day when it was working fine, but there was no change.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have not added any new hardware or software.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I can read my email from my server and will check occasionally for any replies to this post.

Thanks very much,


A:Outlook Express Shuts Down Immediately

The simplest thing to do would be to move the contents of the OE Message Store folder to a new folder.
Using Windows Explorer (Start>Programs>Accessories>Windows Explorer) navigate to "C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID NUMBER}\Microsoft\Outlook Express".
Make sure OE is closed before proceeding.
Open the Outlook Express folder and you should see all the DBX files.
Click Edit>Select all
Click Edit>Cut
Right click an empty area on your desktop and on the menu select New>Folder.
Name it Backup.
Open the new folder Backup and click Edit>Paste.
The DBX files should move from the Message store into Backup.
Try opening OE.

Note: Your mail will all be gone, but you can Import it from the Backup folder.

I just completed a new build. It powered on fine and I managed to configure BIOS but when it tried to restart the power supply immediately just clicked off. There was a small pause and the system tried to power on and shut off again. It kept cycling like that until I switched the power supply off.

Here are my specs:

Motherboard: MSI K9N2 Diamond
PSU: Coolmax CUG-950W
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955
Graphics: Using Integrated
1 120mm Fan
2 80mm Fans

I'm not quite sure what's causing the problem as the system managed to power on and run fine at least twice and the 950W PSU should be enough to run the hardware I have and then some right?

I run Visioneer Paperport 8 on a system with Windows XP (SP1). Whenever I open the program, it starts up long enough to populate its desktop and then shuts down. It does not give me any message before shutting down or any other indication of what is wrong; it's as if the program believes I have clicked exit.

I used to be able to run the software on this system without a problem. I then had to do a system recovery for reasons unrelated to Paperport; the program still worked at first but then this problem arose. My point here is just that the issue is not an inherent conflict between XP and Paperport.

I have installed the available updates for Paperport, but cannot find the precise build number because the program shuts down too quickly for me to find it.

I won't burden you with a list of the myriad software I have on the system, but if anyone has an idea what programs might interfere in a way that would make this happen I'd like to hear from you.

Anyone run into this? My Windows Media Player 11 shuts down as soon as I open it, giving me the usual Windows message "Windows Media Player has encountered a problem and needs to close...".

So far it only does it when I try to open a library audio book which uses some sort of DRM or license or when my MP3 player is attached (which also has audio books on it). This was working fine a couple weeks ago. The only changes on my computer is I just downloaded an update to Avast AV and I'm using MS PowerToys SyncToy to sync My Documents. I tried a System Restore, to no avail.

I'm not familiar with the technical details. It lists assorted "modules":

Event viewer lists this: "Faulting application wmplayer.exe, version 11.0.5721.5145, faulting module indiv01.key, version 11.0.6000.6324, fault address 0x000ffe96."

Yesterday morning I discovered my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C55-B5201) had not shut down after I instructed it to.  I assumed I had not remembered to shut it down, but this morning I opened the lid to find that the computer was not shut down.  I shut down the computer again and it restarted within 30 seconds.  This is my new reality.  My laptop will not stay shut down.
I looked up the problem and tried a couple of solutions through the power options screen but since I am not a computer expert I declined to try the solution involving misconfig which I found, without talking to some experts.
For security I use Panda Security Pro and Win Patrol.  A few weeks ago I also noticed my battery indicator, when laptop is plugged in, shows 80% available battery power and not charging.  This also is different, but I thought, perhaps my battery was starting to wear out, even though at its age this should not be a problem.  My power setting is on "balanced" at the default settings.
Any help is welcome.  Thank you.

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.

My laptop immediately shuts down when the AC adapter is removed, and there is a brand new battery in the laptop. The laptop hard drive was corrupted, so it was replaced with an SSD and a windows 10 OS. At first, I thought the battery was bad, so i bought an HP certified battery, and now it is telling me that it's plugged in and not charging. So now I believe I'm missing a driver. I tried running a test on the battery through the bios, and it got hung up on the battery test, so i performed an extensive test on the whole unit, and it said the battery wasn't installed. Then I tried to run a battery test through HP Support Assistant and then a Blue Screen Error apeared. The "stop code was: DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL.  What failed: ACPL.sys" And unfortunately, because of the new install of the hard drive, The HP Recovery manager is not installed because this application only comes with factory laptops and is not avaliable for download through the HP Website. What im looking to do, is to have the laptop be able to run on the battery. 

A:Laptop Immediately shuts down when AC adapter is removed

Understood but a battery does not need a driver for simple operation. All that happens with pure hardware. The battery will work and charge if everything is good even without a hard drive in the system. You can prove that to yourself. Remove the hard drive if possible and try to charge the battery and run the system on it. If you still can't, then it is a problem with the motherboard and not with Windows.

Hello,Few weeks ago I had power supply outage, since then the laptop died. I decided to gamble and bought new motherboard. I?ve installed it and i get this strange problem, the laptop starts for about 2 seconds and turns off, I can hear the fan working but only black screen.I tried everything I could find on the net so far, I took off the battery off, did the same with ram stick and even replace it with a different ram stick that works on a different laptop, I also tried to drain it with long hold on the power button, but nothing. I saw some people saying it could be a problem with the new motherboard that can?t recognized the hardware or something like that (it?s the same motherboard just a new one). They say to take off the CMOS battery but for some reason, few hours of looking at the laptop parts and searching the net, I couldn?t find the CMOS location.Anyone have any idea on what could happen and what can be done apart from what I?ve already tried? Cheers

I've searched this on the forum and other sites and have found similar threads, but no working answer. My laptop is about a year and a half old and works perfectly fine until yesterday. With no previous warning, when I unplugged my laptop yesterday to use it on battery, suddenly it completely shut off - literally the second I unplugged it, as your desktop would when your power goes out in the house.

If I tried to power it back on without the plug in, there would be no response, as if the battery was completely drained. Once I put the plug back in the charging light goes orange (charging) for a few seconds, then goes white (indicating fully charged). I can power on the computer as per usual, as long as it's plugged in. But again, removing the plug makes it INSTANTLY turn off. If I check the battery indicator in the lower right hand corner, it says "plugged in, not charging" and is stuck at about 92% power, not gaining or losing power.

A:HP Laptop Shuts Off Immediately After Removing Plug

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Based on your description of the problem, I would say it is almost certainly a faulty battery. The symptoms you describe are typical of that. Either that, or a faulty connection somewhere between the battery and the laptop itself, either way it sounds to me like a hardware problem. The more likely option, in my opinion, is a battery fault as that is far more likely to fail.

The indicator lights are by no means infallible, if the battery is outputting the right signal you will get the right lights, this is entirely possible even though there may be a fault, albeit fairly unusual. The lights are only an indication, not a definitive indication of status.

If it is still under warranty I would RMA the laptop and get HP to fix it.

Hi, I run a macbook pro 13" with 2.5GHZ pcu and 2.7GB RAM. I have Windows XP installed via Boot Camp.
Sometimes when I plug in regular headphones or plug/unplug AC power, the computer will shut down immediately. No warning, no "shutting down" screen, just OFF.
Took my computer to the store, they ran test, they verified it's not a hardware issue. They looked very confused and seemed like they didn't know what else to do, and I needed to get back to work so I took my computer back. But I need to know what is happening here, it is very dangerous for my computer.
Malwarebytes and AVG scans showed no problems.

Any ideas? Thank you.

A:computer shuts down immediately when I plug in headphones

It could be electrostatic discharge (ESD), like the little zap you get sometimes when touching something after walking across carpet, especially when the humidity is very low. Try to notice if the computer shuts off when you just touch the headphone or power adapter plugs to the computer before it is actually plugged in. If it does, that is probably what is happening.

Its just a guess, but I have damaged a couple of computers at home by this from plugging in USB thumb drives.

In our office there is one site that we have to use Internet Explorer to access. This morning immediately upon start it crashed on two computers(I am unsure if they are related or not). So I have spent three hours trying to fix it and I am not stuck. It is IE 10 (or was) and it is Windows 7. Things I have tried:

1. Running with no addons.
2. Uninstalling then Reinstalling.
3. Doing an sfc scan to see if it was a missing system file.
4. Making sure all required and optional updates were installed.
5. One computer is used sparingly, there is nothing on it but the default programs but ran a virus scan anyway and it turned up nothing.
6. Reset all internet explorer settings.
7. Finally I installed the IE11 beta version and it does the exact same thing.

Having two different IE versions do the exact same thing makes me think it is a system issue and not an IE issue. Both Firefox and Chrome work with no issues.

Just wanted to add that it will start in safe mode with no problems

Just disabled DEP on IE

A:Internet Explorer immediately shuts down upon start

Maybe try running these tools: tool 1, tool 2.

If that doesnt help, I have a few more possible solutions. This is another one: Install IE 10 and make sure all Windows updates are installed (not just for IE, but for the OS).

If that doesnt work, tell me.

I am running Vista SP1 on Dell Inspiron 53S. Have been getting Event ID 6008 error code consistently (8 - 10 times in a 24 hour period). See posts for this error code for 2000 and 2003 servers but nothing for Vista. Have tried to pinpoint what sequence of events might trigger the shout down but no consistent patern is obvious. HELP!!

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.

So I have a Dell Precision M4600 running Windows 7.  Whenever its plugged into the wall or docking station, if the battery drops out, it shuts down immediately as if I don't have it plugged into the wall.  Windows does tell me that its plugged in.  The battery charges fine as I have unplugged the laptop and used it off the battery.  So those are indicators that it is receiving power through the plug. 

So why should it power off if the battery gets disconnected?
Yes the battery is loose and right now I have duct tape holding it in.
