    My computer just unexpectedly shut down just now.

    There was no BSOD and it restarted itself after hanging at a black screen.

    I don't see anything in my event viewer that would cause a problem.

    I already set it to not restart again if it unexpectedly crashes again so I can write down whatever happened, if there is anything to write down.

    Here's an error related to my anti virus at the time of my "restart", but it might not be relevant:

    "The Eset Nod32 Boot service failed to start due to the following error:
    The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp."

    also in security during time of restart.

    Logon account: MYNAMEHERE
    Source Workstation: MYNAME
    Error Code: 0xC000006A"

    "Logon Failure:
    Reason: Unknown user name or bad password
    User Name: MYNAMEHERE
    Domain: ETC
    Logon Type: 2
    Logon Process: Advapi
    Authentication Package: Negotiate
    Workstation Name: MYNAME"

    Both are in my event viewer.

    It could be something wrong, heat wise, but I don't see anything wrong when using speedfan. Most of the temperatures are around ~35-40C. I haven't over clocked yet and don't plan to soon.

    I JUST built this computer recently. I don't think I did anything wrong hardware wise though.

    Here's my system info.
