That's what I'm asking- where are the logs in Windows 7? There doesn't appear to be a mini dump, Microsoft seems to be saying to look at the event viewer but I don't know what to look for.

Crashing as in it powers itself off abruptly. Netbook is only 8 months old.

What I really want is to be able to find out from the logs or minidumps or event viewer what caused the shutdown/crash.

"...Crashing as in it powers itself off abruptly. Netbook is only 8 months old..."

Most likely it is overheating.  That is a hardware issue, and the netbook is still under warranty.  You should return it to whoever you bought it from and let them repair or replace it.

There you go phototropic beat me  
so I'd suggest you take his advise as I agree with it, dont tinker with warranty jobs.

But if you want to know where the logs are just like in XP

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools Event Viewer
Windows Logs
Or application logs browse through them
Quickest way to Event Viewer is Start - Search - type Event Viewer;

Check Windows Logs - Application Events and Windows Logs - System Events.

But you should still return the Netbook under warranty.
