  1. Bug check at spontaneous reboot +++RESOLVED+++

    RESOLVED: Saggy power supply.

    Would appreciate it if someone could interpret this one. See attachment.

    It results from occasional (once a week) reboots when awakening from sleep mode.

    Memory and drive both test OK. RAM chips (two 512s) have been transposed with one another and contacts have been cleaned.

    Boards have been reseated and case is dust free.

    Pagefile has been rebuilt.

    Chkdsk /f /r and have been run.

    W7 O/S has been rebuilt - clean install from the ground up.
    (All updates have been UNinstalled, as a test.)

    Asus P5P800 w/1Gb ram P4 @ 3.0Ghz
    CPU temp 57 c / 134 f MB temp 30 c / 86 f 12v bus averages 11.8
    All fans running normally

    I am out of ideas. Works flawlessly but for this. Thanks.

    Can you please post your system's specifications?

    The minidump cites 0x124_GenuineIntel error; which may be due overheating issues as well. Also according to msdn these errors can be caused by hardware failures, software failures or a combination of both.

    If you have more minidumps please post them.

    The error is always #41 (unexpected shutdown - for unknown reason. There is no bluescreen.)
    Most often hits just after sleep mode awakening but it may have occurred - rarely - at other times.

    Unlikely it's an overheating problem. Case has booster fan and is very cool to the touch, as it
    always has been.

    Note that this happens infrequently, but it never cropped up (for years) until several months ago.

    UPDATE - new minidump

    Here's the latest. This one occurred during play of an audio file - second incident of same in a week. I believe that the failure is related to the one being discussed here.

    The .dmp file is attached.
