    Random Crashes


    My computer has recently been randomly crashing (last 2 days). It could happen when I'm just browsing the web or playing games. It doesn't seem to matter if it's under load or not. Sometimes my computer stays on for 8 hours, sometimes 2 or under 1.

    I used "DM Log Collector": Attachment 52643

    EDIT: I don't get a BSOD, my monitor just goes black and my computer restarts.

    EDIT2: Checked Event Viewer and found this error:

    Event Type: Critical
    Event ID: 41
    Source: Kernel-Power
    Log: System
    Keywords: 0x8000000000000002

    This one has happened 8 times in 24 hours

    Hi Ecol & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    This BSOD was caused by your Focuswrite USB Audio Device. I would suggest you to find an updated set of drivers for this one or if the problems still occur, kindly remove it till the time we are troubleshooting your system.

    Also, it appears that you are overclocking your system which justifies the Event 41 which is related to Kernel Power. I would suggest you to immediately reset your BIOS settings to STOCK settings to clear the Overclock.

    Also, kindly see if there is any BIOS Update for your system. Do note that updating BIOS can be a very unforgiving task as even a minute mistake of failing to flash the BIOS properly would result in your motherboard being bricked or permanently damaged.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^
