    Windows 10 hard periodic power cycles; no event viewer events


    My Windows 10 desktop started power cycling itself during light use. No event viewer events to mark trouble at the point of losing power. I could use some help isolating. Details below....

    System Characteristics:

    - Custom build about 1.5 years old since last hardware change
    - Gigabyte mobo
    - i7 7700 3.6GHz
    - 32 GB RAM
    - EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070
    - 750w modular power supply

    Condition:

    About after 5-10 minutes of light use browsing maps or on social media, the workstation loses power and reboots itself hard reset. It happens so fast that Windows does not get a chance to capture an event. The only applicable entries in the event viewer state "Windows was not properly shut down; the previous system shutdown at 00:00:00 AM on 1/16/2020 was unexpected."

    Condition began the day after this Microsoft update: "9NMPJ99VJBWV-Microsoft.YourPhone" that was applied on 1/4/2020. This update is not a removable update handles license keys?. Not sure if related.


    Troubleshooting steps taken so far:

    - checked perfmon/event viewer - nothing notable
    - ran Windows Update - current
    - checked Intel drivers - current

    Suspected power issues from power strip plugged into new APC UPS
    - replaced power cord with heavy gauge 13a
    - plugged power directly into wall instead of APC UPS or surge protector
    - ran power troubleshooter

    Suspected OS-related
    - sfc /scannow - nothing found
    - clean boot - condition still exists
    - updated graphics drivers - w/ clean boot - condition still exists
    - tried multiple browsers FF, Edge - condition exists
    - safe mode - condition exists

    :)

    As you have mentioned, you have performed a repair installation on the computer and you see Event 508, 510 and 533 in Event Viewer.



    I would like to inform that if you see any critical error in Event Viewer, please share the event logs with us to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps. Please follow the steps mentioned below to share the event logs:



    1. Press Windows + X from the keyboard, select

      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside

    Event Viewer problems

    I have a critical warning on my event viewer relating to Kernel-Power, also a list of other errors. How do I remove these threats? I am running Windows 10.
