Yesterday after a week long holiday, I came home and started my computer which ran fine until this afternoon.
I was out and about doing things and I left the computer on and logged online as I usually do.
When I came home, I found it had shut down and restarted and I was at my Windows Logon screen.
I figured we must have had some sort of electrical outage, so I logged in and let my Intel RAID storage manger do it's thing (it has to re-verify and re-match the data on my two RAID 1 drives)
I wandered back in a few minutes later to find the computer had gone into a CheckDisc. Check Disc didn't find any bad things so I let it run through and restarted, now all seems well again.
I am curious as to why it might have shut down in the first place and not quite sure where to look.
Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer says no critical errors, just one error message that says the shut down was unexpected (duh).
Anywhere else I can under Event Viewer etc?
PS.. I forget if my details are in here.. I am running Windows Home Premium SP 1 on a Dell XPS 420 System with 500G hard drives in RAID 1 and 4G of RAM
