Windows 7 unexpectedly shuts down, shortly after startup, sometimes three times a day, sometimes once in 4 days, if it runs for 5 mins. it will not shut down untill at least the next startup ! , has been doing this since installation ( about a mont ago ), the last bugcheck message from the action centre reads:
Problem: Windows Stopped working 24/07/2011 5:06pm
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000008e (0xc0000046, 0x83488990, 0xb47a71d8, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 072411-26676-01.
Windows shut down unexpectedly 24/07/2011 5:07pm
I have since turned off the error monitoring to see if this makes any difference ( have done this out of sheer frustration ! ), have already tried disabling various non critical startup entries, am using the latest manufacturer drivers for windows 7.
I have windows XP installed on another hard drive ( dual boot ), no problems, so does not seem to be hardware related.
System Hardware incudes: Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 mainboard, AMD Phenom II x6 1055T 2.8GHz Processor, 4Gb Kingston, or Corsair.
