I have a new pc that has been shutting down without warning - I get this error code

BCCode : 100000d1     BCP1 : 000000C0     BCP2 : 00000002     BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : EFC4136B     OSVer : 5_1_2600     SP : 2_0     Product : 256_1    

How do I find out what this means?   Does anyone else know what this means?

    Accepted Solution

    right click on my computer goto properties then goto the advanced tab click on settings under startup and recovery and then disable automatic restart.  So that the next time it occurs you will see a bluescreen it is more than likely a driver error.

    Make sure you take note of the blue screen and post it here what it says and what it says is responsible for it.

    by:maramom;en-us;316424 sounds like a driver issue...
    if the pc is a home build..have you installed the mainboard drivers as well as any other components on the system?
    Either way, try updating the drivers through the manufacturer's sites.
