    BSOD Randomly, can i find out the cause?

    The computer is only ever used for internet browsing, i was watching a youtube video at the exact time of the crash, i for a few hours before it happened, i generally use it no more than 5 hours continuously and sometimes for just 5 minutes. I will post the crash dmp/new MTB logs from now on...

    BSOD Randomly, can i find out the cause?

    It did have the :( face i believe, back in the day the screen used to stay for like 5 minutes on the rare occasion it appeared, but it lasts for a few seconds now and auto-restarts, but i believe it did have the sad face. I have attached the file.

    BSOD Randomly, can i find out the cause?

    So i just crashed, no minidump folder was created, and for good measure i searched the c drive for "dmp" and out of the results none had a modified date for this month let alone a few minutes ago. (not actual dmp files just had dmp in the name). I followed the guide you posted but it still...

    BSOD Randomly, can i find out the cause?

    Also i checked event viewer and all the 'critical' level events are the same and occur about as frequent as my BSOD from the looks of it. They all say "Source: Kernel-Power, Event ID: 41, Task Category: (63)" Now i did send my laptop off to be fixed for this issue BSOD as it happened before i...
