Hello All,

Over the past two weeks I have been having issues with my file server. It randomly shuts down throughout the day and its not always at the same time. For instance yesterday it shutdown at 6:09am, then 3:58pm. The day before that it shutdown about 3 or 4 times throughout the day. I checked the event logs and it doesnt say much. Most of the time when it shuts down there isnt anything in the logs around the the time that it shutdown besides event log error 6008. The previous system shutdown at [time] on [date] was unexpected. So far I have ran Symantec Antivirus, Malwarebytes but those didnt pick up anything. I have turned off the auto restart option in startup and recovery. The server isnt producing a minidump or memory dump file. I have also tried to turn off Symantec Antivirus to see if that could be causing the problem but that also did not work. Its also not running any updates for those to cause the reboot. I have a HijackThis log file if you need that to look at. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

have you checked and double checked all of the cooling fans to be sure they are functioning? Also look at dust build up which could be causing it to overheat and shutdown.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
