  1. Computer crashes randomly after sitting idle


    Hey guys,


    New poster here and im hoping I can get some help. I've tried researching and fixing this on my own but the problem keeps happening. My computer will (seemingly randomly) crash after sitting idle for several minutes. It goes to a blue screen and will produce a couple different WHEA errors. What info can I provide to help you, help me diagnose and fix this. I've run memcheck w/o any issues. Updated drivers, reinstalled windows multiple times and on multiple hard drives. Nothing seems to fix the problem.

    :)

  3. computer won't start after sitting idle

    Yesterday I had a black screen with a message saying there was a driver problem. I did an update and things seemed to be working fine. Unfortunately the computer won't start up after it has been sitting idle. I have to keep turning it off completely in
    order to restart it.

    10 Crashing Randomly and During Updates and File Downloads

    This is a re-post from here.

    I have a Windows 10 PC that I run 24/7. I have Windows Updates disabled through the Group Policy Editor. I still perform updates manually every few days. Windows Defender updates work fine. Other Windows updates cause the PC to crash, no BSOD or anything, it just turns off. I've looked for 1074, 6006, and 6008 event log files to explain why and I haven't been able to find anything.

    Other times the computer just randomly crashes and also sometimes when downloading files. The symptom is the same, I check on it and find it powered down or it just shuts off while I'm using it. It boots back up fine and I see no cause listed in the event logs.

    I have been through the 3 tests suggested to me on the old thread. SMART looked good, memtest ran for 33 hours for 8 passes with no errors, and prime was run for 3 hours with no errors.

    I think the next step was to run V2 Log collector, that data is attached.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Chris
