Within the last 24 hours, my computer has restarted 3 times. Yesterday morning, last night, and this morning. The box pops up that says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown...". I haven't installed anything new lately. How do I go about finding out what the problem is?

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. My computer is an HP p6733w and it's about 3 years old. Let me know what other information you need. I will be at work until some time this evening.

Thanks :)

Lets get some info collected before making any suggestions.

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Please download and run Hardware Monitor
Installation (setup version only)
HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature. Please get a screenshot of the sensors window and post it in your next reply.




Please follow the steps below to enter the Event Viewer program in Vista\Win7\Win8. This will give me more information into what is causing your issue. You can get to Event viewer two ways and I will post both for you.


" Go to
" Start
" In the Search box type in Event Viewer in the search box and press Enter
" From this point you can follow from step four from the below method as they will be the same.
Method Two
" Go to Start
" Right click on the Computer Icon and select Manage
" Navigate to the Event Viewer, You will be prompted to accept the action you are going to perform. Click continue
" On the left window pane click on Local and then expand the Windows entry. This will allow you to see every error for the past 24 hours as well as the last 7 days in the right window pane.
" Look for the ones that correspond to the times that your issue occurred.
" If any are found please double click and expand the error. This will open and give you more information on the error.
" Please include that in your next reply.

OK two things I need to check because the speedfan and HWMonitor did not show the +12 volt rail reading. This may indicate a faulty PSU but I can't be sure. Most newer PC's built within the last 5 years has the voltage readings available in the bios under the power heading. Can you possibly try to boot into the bios and check the +12 volt rail reading for me please.
Secondly there is a program I use to gather more info if you could please try it for me.
