Windows 10: sudden reboot Solved

    sudden reboot

    Hi everyone
    Today I was using my PC and it suddenly rebooted with no error whatsoever
    when I checked the events it had event 41 (only 2 were unknown cause, the others was me shutting down the PC improperly) and I have no idea what could have caused it
    Immediately after the reboot I checked the temperatures and they were fine. (I also disabled automatic reboot just in case)
    Thanks beforehand.

    No dump so not much we can do to debug this.

    Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files: How to Configure Windows 10 to Create Dump Files on BSOD

    If that doesn't give us a dump on the next failure, try Driver Verifier.

    Driver Verifier is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.
    Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

    Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

    My guess is that this is the culprit

    I don't think you should worry about reboot unless it's locked in a reboot cycle. It could be just a simple error. Persistent BSOD, yes.

    Thanks for the answers
    Since i checked with driver verifier and it had no issues I'm going to assume that it was a windows update or maybe a brownout
    Again thanks for the replies

    A search for bsod and KB3163018 gets lots of hits, so definitely a good possibility.
