Windows 10 several unexpected shut downs

Q: Windows 10 several unexpected shut downs

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.

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

Hi everyone, I'm not such a technically advanced computer user, but I've been getting a ton of unexpected shut downs lately, seemingly out of nowhere. 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?

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.

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'm using Windows 7 64 bit and as I said in the topic, my computer is turning off after exactly 1 hour. I've tried reinstall Windows and it helped me for 2 weeks. After this time it started shutting off again.
Can someone help me with this problem?

A:Windows 7 shut downs exactly after 1 hour.

 It sounds like you have something either in Task Scheduler or something in your startup list that's causing this.  First run MSCONFIG, click the Startup tab (Note: avoid the other tabs), and you'll see a list of things being started when you boot up.  You can uncheck anything there except you antivirus program.  If that doesn't stop the problem, you can run the Task Scheduler and look.  It's found under Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Task Scheduler.  There's a plethora of stuff there, so be careful!
 
Good luck.

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

Have looked around on the net and have already tried Memtest+ and HDD checking software very recently on my PC and they both returned nothing

Over a period of several weeks I've been experiencing spontaneous shut downs on my HP Pavilion dv7 laptop (Windows 7). There doesn't appear to be any correlation with what the PC is being used for at the time. Shut downs can happen when the computer is unattended; or when in use with (seemingly) any application -the screen suddenly goes black, there's a click, and the machine dies.
 
I don't believe it's due to overheating -The fan isn't running at high speed when a shut down happens. [The fan does run at high speed other times (intensive processing).]
 
A couple days ago I discovered that Windows Firewall wasn't turned on. When I tried to start it I got a msg saying the settings were not what's preferred, prompting me with a button to change to the preferred settings. When I click on that button I get a spinning wheel; eventually it stops spinning but nothing has changed.
 
My boot disk is an Intel 520series SSD. I've used the Intel SSD Toolbox -it tells me all is well with the drive.
I ran Check Disk in Safe Mode -it ran through all stages, no errors found.
 
I did a scan with Malwarebytes -nothing found.
 
[not sure if this is a related issue:  Lately the PC has been taking much longer to establish a network connection -seems to me it used to be almost instantaneous after booting or waking from sleep; now it takes something like 30 sec. to connect to the internet.]

I've been having some strange problems with a fairly new PC and I was hoping the community could help. It all seems to stem from my windows Explorer not functioning properly, but I'm worried it could be a hardware issue. This computer is fairly new, just 8 months old. These problems all started happening about 3 weeks ago.

Specs:

Windows 7 64-bit, Home Premium SP1 (w/ all of the latest updates)
AMD PhenomII X6 1055T Six-Core CPU w/ HyperTransport Technology
Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System

700 Watts - XtremeGear Power Supply
x2 ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 16X PCIe Video Cards (in CrossFire mode)

Problems:
1) When I boot the computer, everything works fine until I get to the "Starting Windows" boot screen. The Windows logo will do it's animation for about 6 seconds and then freeze. Then, nothing will happen for either a few minutes or not at all. The activity on my hard drive also seems to stop. I usually have to hit the reset button and start all over again. Windows asks if I want to repair my startup, and I have many times before, but that doesn't seem to work.

2) Windows Explorer will hang or not respond every once in a while. I'll delete or move applications and it won't show what I did on the desktop, folder, etc. until I hit F5 to refresh. I'll right click and the... Read more

Hi everyone

At work, I have a computer that I built that has experienced shut downs intermittently. When this happens, the entire machine powers down, but then starts booting up without pressing the power button.

We thought it might be a CPU temperature issue, were running SpeedFan, and bought an aftermarket CPU heatsink and installed it. The temp's decreased, but the shut downs persisted.

The shut downs seem to happen often when a Save function is attempted. Often using Photoshop and Illustrator, when ctrl+s is hit to save is precisely when the restart will occur. Upon bootup, I'll be left with only a temp file for the Photoshop file I was trying to save and it'll be broken. This is indicitive to me as some kind of Harddrive read/write issue. I ran some diagnostics on the Harddrive and got conflicting results, sometimes bad someitmes fine.

I replaced the HDD anyways, and all seemed OK for about 4 or 5 days. But alas, the problem persists, once again precisely when ctrl+s is hit. This confirms to me that HDD probably is not the issue.

The full specs are the following:

GIGABYTE|GA-X58-USB3 X58 1366 Motherboard
Intel i7 950
160GB Seagate Barracuda (newest HDD)
EVGA Nvidia GT440

While waiting for a reply:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

Quote:




H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks




When you replaced the HDD, how did you transfer the OS? Was it a fresh install or did you transfer an image?

Did you get mixed hard drive test results with this new hard drive? Please run the Seagate Seatools bootable hard drive test from here: HD Diagnostic

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

Windows 10
500GB toshiba HDD
Nvidia Geforce 820M 1GB ded.
It started happening recently where my laptop would freeze for a long time with no reponse to mouse and key inputs. It usually happens about 10-20 minutes after I switch it on. 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.
I later researched on forums and other sites if people encountered such a problem and I tried something setring the PCI express settings of the power management from Max Power savings to Off and it still contiued to misbehave.

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.

Hello all,

I've been getting the 'windows has recovered from an unexpected shut down' message after my laptop has put itself to sleep according to it's power plans. It awakes from sleep mode fine but I get this message. However if I manually put it to sleep and awaken it, there are no problems at all.

hi this is most likely a driver problem you may want to go to device manager and check your drivers for any yellow ! or red x now even if you have none of these it may still be good practice to go to mfr website support page for you model comp and download all the newest drivers and install them one at a time and reboot after each to insure a clean install

My PC turns on at 6AM to get updates etc. Waking it up a couple of hours later I often find "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shut down". I've never actually seen the BSOD.

I'm fairly obsessive about getting the latest updates and drivers.

Files attached as per this notice, plus report from WhoCrashed.

Retail Upgrade - upgraded from itself!
Age of system: varies, mostly <18 months
Age of install: Windows folder created 14 ‎July ‎2009

A:Windows has recovered from an unexpected shut down

These 50 are virtually identical. All were related to a critical process being terminated. In this case wininit.

From the uptimes I am assuming you put it to sleep instead of rebooting and that may be part of the problem.

lets start with a system file check to verify (and hopefully repair) the system files.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

You have several old/problematic drivers that will eventually need updating or removing. Your webcam driver is from 2006 for example.

I would also reboot once a day until the situation is resolved.

Ok I'm confused! I have included hijack this logfile to see if there's malware somewhere,and I may need help with dll file problems. Service control manager error messages in the system section of event viewer. in application section of event viewer there is Net runtime 2.0 error, and control service manager. I am also noticing that Media player network sharing service running, and windows explorer is running also. Believe it or not I'm not running slow!

First I noticed after the last update many weeks ago that I couldn't save frontpage sheets, it tells me once in a while that I have run out of temporary memory. It told me I didn't have the authorization to save the file, so I started to use Dreamweaver for html documents.

Zone alarm said while Dreamweaver trying to launch, and is using temporary file, or use another program to gain access to privileged resources. I click ok, but once in awhile Dreamweaver (?) tells me I am running low on memory.

I can't save photos that I only made smaller and tried to compress for sending out. Tells me I don't have the authority.

I thought it was a registry problem, so I used registry Mechanic, and it found over 200 errors which I fixed. Now I consistently get errors in temp CHK area the reg mechanic finds. I keep getting popups from zone alarm that there's class changes (at least 5 times) with the letters chk mentioned there.

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.

My problem is that my computer randomly shuts down. It is very much like a power outage has occurred: one second my computer is fine and the next it is completely off. According to event viewer it has happened 6 times since july 12, two of those times being today. It usually happens when the computer is idle, though it has also happened once when I was surfing the internet. I should also note that I purchased the graphics card and the power supply at the beginning of june. I also purchased the WD hard drive a couple weeks ago but the problem has been happening since before I got it. Also, my cpu idles at about 30 degrees Celsius and my graphics card idles at about 42 degrees Celsius.

I'm thinking the problem is a bad power supply, but my knowledge of hardware is pretty poor.

I've replaced the power supply, which was old and am now running a 910W with a solid rail, so I don't think its a power issue. I've used mem-test to test my RAM over night, that came out fine, I've used some of AMD's utilities to stress test the processor over night and that was fine, I can run SD Mark and play Fall Out Vegas on the rig with no issues, so I hesitate to call the video card the culprit.

Hi, I'm on my mom's XP-running Compaq computer and there's a lot of crap on it. The problem I'm having right now is there are still pop-up ads coming and occasionally it'll just shut off without warning. Prior to that it was having something with lsass.exe causing an 'error' and making it reboot -- I'd heard it's a worm symptom, but I don't think I managed to extract it. I haven't had that error since installing a firewall, but it could be lurking there still. I've gone through this thing with both Spybot and Ad-Aware, and Spybot picked up something called Dyfuca Internet Optimizer that it wasn't able to remove because it was 'already running,' and Ad-Aware keeps finding something called Win32.Worm.Agobot.E that seems to keep coming back between each scan. Maybe they're the same thing, I dunno.I've tried also getting the XP security patch updates but Microsoft keeps timing out as it scans my system for needed updates.Any help would really be appreciated at this point.

I re-formated and re-installed my PC just 2 weeks ago and have now all drivers updates etc installed but have the last 10 days or so, experienced shutdown and restart problems and a really long time with the red light on front of PC (not sure of correct name), either flickering or continuously ON. Especially after long tasks. Any chance of someone knowing what's going on? Although it is fine half the time, in this respect it's worse than before I reinstalled it! I would go back to XP, but it looks too much of a hassle.

A:Red light and shut downs

Now you are saying it is worst now than before the reinstall. This tells me that you had a problem alreay. Reinstalling windows will only fix software relted issues. You could be looking at a part failure like hard drive. The red light is also likely the hard drive activity light.

I downloaded Piriform's Specci and here are the results I got for the following hardware (Celsius): CPU 51, Motherboard 52, Hard drive 38 - These are the results on balanced and Dell battery life extender enabled. I've seen videos of dusting a laptop's ventilation system however their temperatures didn't seem to make a significant difference so I didn't try it. Any ideas?

I have tried to close a majority of the background programs running and it seems to help a little, but it still shuts own, just later on.

Post fine
Bios fine
Initializes Win 7 ok until the Chime rings signifying windows is finishing up
Suddenly shuts itself down resulting in a black screen (DOS looking)

Thr screen indicates tha Win 7 did not start properly Do you want to:
-         
Start windows normally
-         
Start windows in safe mode
-         
Start windows in safe mode with network access
-         
Start windows in safe mode with DOS
If I select normally it goes through the same process again and again and again

If I select with newetwok the bulk of the system works fine as long as it does not reboot
