Hyper-V VM in a Running-Critical State

I have 6 vm's running on Server 2008 r2.  Two of the vm's are running in critical state. When I log into them and check event logs all appears normal. This just started to occur out of the blue a day or so ago. I have powered them off and back on and this did not help.  the vhd files are running on a local D drive and I have verified the paths.  

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Check your Event Logs. Specifically the Administrative Events under Custom Views and under Applications and Services Log for Hyper-V.

What do they say specifically?
