HP 6530b Randomly Reboots

I have a user with an HP 6530b laptop. It is running Windows 7 64-bit. The laptop will randomly reboot. It is on a dock, and the dock has been replaced with a good working dock.

Make a memtest boot medium, and test a few hours with that. In the mean time, check if you have minidump files (if not, enable it), so we can analyse that later.

I did the memory test and the memory passed.

I will try running the system diagnostics now that the user is back in the office.

Hardware diagnostics did not find anything, however the error log found a problem with the video driver and the ethernet driver. The drivers were replaced and the laptop has been running for a week without randomly shutting down.

Another laptop had a similar problem, and replacing the memory (after doing a memtest) fixed that problem.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
