    Do DistributedCom errors cause random restarts?


    Title pretty much says it!!

    My PC will randomly and without warning restart or shut itself down (not a BSOD). I found the event viewer and these errors (Event ID 10016) and a kernal power faults are there around the time this happened. I'm not 100% sure since I know the logs record constantly, so the time stamps may not be accurate for the restart.

    I still believe what I am seeing is totally hardware related because of all the forums I've read on this 10016 error it doesn't shut the PC down. Just nuisance kind of thing.

    I have a $1,500 hardware upgrade ready to purchase, but I still haven't figured out if this is a windows (software) or a hardware issue.

    I have also went through the drivers and no issues were found. I did have some issues with my video card drivers because windows installed a really old version and then I just installed the latest, so I had not properly cleaned out the old ones. That was taken care of because I wiped this sucker clean AGAIN and did it all right this go around and it STILL restarts itself!!

    Any insight you guys may have would be great!!!

    I also just turned off the automatic restart so I can get an error message. I also ran "WhoCrashed" and that did not find any memory dumps.
