How to identify why new Windows 10 computer keeps restarting

January 18, 2016 at 00:01:30
Specs: Windows 10
Hello Guys,

I have an issue with a recently buyed Windows 10 system. It keeps rebooting every ~10 minutes or so. Weird thing is it generally do not happen if I am running an app, like for example watching a video or playing a game. But as soon as the video is finished, bam! reboot.

I have looked on the website already and generated this report (below).
Does it means that a specific device is causing it? Are there ways to identify the cause? I have already tried to install the latest drivers of my mouse/keyboard/sound system.

I also tried to reset the pc, which helped for a week before the issue occurred again.

If it's less than 12 months it will be covered by the manufacturer's warranty so you should contact them (the manufacturer, not the vendor).

They are obliged to repair or replace it.

That's what warranties are for, so make use of it!

"Are there ways to identify the cause?"
Yes, need an Minidump ( MEMORY.DMP, is too large ) Change the setting to give you a minidump ( Small memory dump ) & when you get the problem again, you should have a minidump.

Copy & Paste the dump (.dmp ) file onto your desktop & then upload it using ZippyShare. No account/registration needed. Post the link please.
Instructions on how to use ZippyShare.
Minidump file is located in C:\Windows\Minidump

@johnw: Thanks!
I'll be sure to do it.

@phil22: indeed. I would like to make sure it's not something I can easily solve before sending my computer to repair which takes a few weeks.

Bug Check 0xD1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL would imply bad drivers, but the fact that your event viewer can't pull up the normal BSOD text is troubling. Right-click on the start button, run the Command Prompt (Admin), and run:
dism /online /cleanup-image /restoreHealth
Once that's done, run
sfc /scannow
If SFC says something about fixing something or requiring a reboot, do so. If that doesn't solve your issues, look in to updating your drivers. If you post your minidump, I'll see if I can't find which driver caused the system crash.

Thanks for your answer, interesting!
It doesn't give anything though:

''Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.''

I contacted the manufacturer as well and they told me to first do a complete re-install (factory settings); which I did.
Last time it solved the issue for 3-4 days. (though I didn't do the complete reset). Though I fear the issue will re-appear.

Again thanks for all the interesting answers. I'll post the minidump should it happens.

Do not forget the possibility that this is a hardware fault.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Some of the clues/possibles point to memory.

Remove the memory, clean the contacts & only try/test one stick at a time.

That's a whole lot of corrupted pages right there.

In the text box on your task bar, type:

and select Windows Memory Diagnostic. From there, pick the Restart now and check for problems. Make sure the "Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool" screen pops up and starts doing its thing. Then just walk away.

Next time you log in to Windows, wait a few minutes. You should get a notification about the test results. If the report says there's memory issues, make note of the wording, and give it to the manufacturer. That report would be fairly definitive proof that the memory's bad.
