It shuts off when I was just going into "my computer". I was just about to do something and it shuts off. There was no sounds or Error messages or smells. It just go to a black screen. I can still hear the fan going by that is to the power supply. But the Fan on the CPU stop.

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.



In safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
