I know this topic has probably has come up in the past. However I have been searching for a solution to my problem, and I cant figure it out. My computer, randomly, keeps turning itself off. Sometimes it will turn off and restart on its own. Also sometimes it will just go to blank screen and I would have to manually turn it off. I have turned off the "restart after error" option in the control panel. With this turned off I still wont get the blue screen once the computer turns off. I do have a couple of things that it could be: psu, overheating or some kind of virus. I have scanned the computer for a virus, nothing came back. Also the fan seems to be working fine.
I do have this error message from the event log:
Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c000001d, parameter2 f865be19, parameter3 b5ebafac, parameter4 00000000.
And this error message from the previous shut down:
Error code 1000000a, parameter1 88261ee0, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 804f4d86.
I wish I knew what this means, hopefully someone in this forum could lend a helping hand.
