Kernel-Power Critical Error on W520

2012-03-31, 3:25 AM

Hey Everyone,

 

Every now and then, I play a little Minecraft on  my W520. However lately, I'll be playing and the computer will completely lock up and I'll have to hold the power button down and turn it off. When I boot back up, I look in the event viewer to see..

I have had this happen 4 times now, and I am wondering if it is a hardware problem that I should get fixed. It's not overheating as I have Lenovo Turboboost on and the temperature was only 49 degrees celcius when it froze.

 

I have the 500gb 7200rpm hard drive, Quadro 1000M, 8 gb RAM (stock), 1080p display.

 

Any suggestions as to what might be causing this?

 

Thanks!

 

W520 4270CTO / Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit / NVIDIA Quadro 1000M / 8 GB DDR3 RAM / 1080p Display / 500gb 7200 rpm HD / Intel Core i7 2720QM / BIOS 1.39

Hi,

 

anything else installed or is it crashing only during that game? try a system update to get the latets drivers and run a sfc /scannow in the run menu.

 

Let us know the outcome.
