Anytime, without a reason windows 10 stops whatever I'm doing, shows a blue screen with a message saying my comp has a problem and needs to restart and send info to Microsoft. Every time that happens there is a different problem described. Also shows one of those square codes to scan in order to know more. At the same time, it goes from 0% to 100% and then restarts like nothing was wrong.

It could happen like 3 times in one or 2 hours and then stops.

I don't know what's wrong, please help me !

This happens to my computer on occasion. It seems to be totally random and I have no idea what is causing it.

Random, exactly. Sometimes it doesn't happen for 3 hours and then comes back.

I started to outline the process , but this is faster

6 Ways to Open Event Viewer in Windows 10

The link is just the 1st one I found
For now , you are only interested in the System Event logs . And only the ones marked as error

If it does not say something about "irq not equal or less" implying a device driver or peripheral problem then run HDD Scan overnight. Most likely bad blocks when i see this happen.

This is a url for the utility i use. Not sure if there is a newer version but ive used the same app at the same url for a long time.

hddguru.com...

Edited to add the solution if the hdd is in trouble: replace the drive. You can use Easus Todo free version to clone to ssd from another computer.

Of course no errors. Do you think the government would want a silly BSOD interrupting their data collection? Has anyone figured out what's up with the ESENT information messages logged every 30 to 45 minutes? I should trace who they are "ESENT"ing to one of these days...

The last one I got is :

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 4/1/2018 3:45:20 PM
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
Description:
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Before that one :

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 4/1/2018 2:27:58 PM
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
User: SYSTEM

Description:
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

In most cases , there is always events logged before a "Green Screen of Death"
Windows 10 , at least FCU , has a Green screen , not a Blue screen...
ESENT events will be logged in the Application Event Log
And , that issue has been resolved. Else , there may be corruption on the hidden windows partition.(which really isnt hidden)(just dont delete it. I did once , just for fun)

Those are just notifications that the system rebooted , without you doing it..
Is there any more ?
You will have to keep going back in time

If it were a software error (programmatic) it would most likely give the same error at the same place and time.

If it's hardware, it happens just about whenever and wherever at random.

I'd consider that you have some faulty hardware.

Check the easy stuff first like stalled fans and dodgy connectors. Get some motherboard/memory/cpu/gpu test utils and see if you can find a definite fault.

Also, could be a dodgy Power Supply (either from the mains or overloaded PSU.

If it is an older PC, it might just be time for an upgrade?

a long list...

They are about the same. All Critical Level. Also have lots like this one :

Log Name: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing/Admin
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-EventTracing
Date: 3/31/2018 9:03:18 PM
Event ID: 1
Task Category: Logging
Level: Warning

Description:
The backing-file for the real-time session "DefenderApiLogger" has reached its maximum size. As a result, new events will not be logged to this session until space becomes available. This error is often caused by starting a trace session in real-time mode without having any real-time consumers.

You know, I was thinking maybe is the power supply. What do you think?

Now , that shows a possible issue with Window's Defender ( Windows 10 Security Center)
Do you have any Event ID 2's that state anything to do with Windows Defender ?

Normally power supply failure is catastrophic but if the mains source is dodgy or if there's too much load on the power supply,the switchmode part can oscillate at frequencies that can't be rectified properly. Hence wobbly voltages and random stuff.
