Computer turning off randomly
Posted on 2013-12-02
So my computer is randomly turning itself off.
Event Viewer shows 41-Kernel Power
Everything has been just fine, but then I was wiping free space with CCleaner. I've never done that before and not sure what made me do it in the first place. But half way through, everything was locked up. No CTRL-ALT-DEL, nothing. So I hard-rebooted and everything seemed fine.
Then, the next day, my son was playing Minecraft and the computer just turns off. So I booted back up and everything seemed normal. I thought that since it turned off while he was playing a game I'll take the time to go update my video card drivers. So everything seemed fine last night.
Woke up this morning and the computer was off.
Any ideas? I don't even know where to start on this one. Actually I might. My C: drive is a 50GB SSD and I've had trouble with this same type on another machine.
Also, I run SpeedFan and temps seem to be fine.
Here is my system:
