I have a windows 7 machine that I essentially run like a server (as that's what the build was apparently designed for). Specs follow:

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
System Model: Precision WorkStation T5400  
BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A09
Processor: Intel® Xeon® CPU           E5440  @ 2.83GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 14336MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 12286MB RAM
Page File: 2097MB used, 22472MB available

Now to warn all potential helpers in advance, I do get a message during POST and before the OS that mentions there is a memory mismatch, but I've always been able to run just fine by moving past the message and have simply been too lazy to take out all the RAM and find the problem.

Here is the event log from the unexpected shutdown:

When I inspected the machine this morning, it was simply recovering from an unexpected shutdown and had restarted (stopping of course at the memory mismatch). As I'm hoping to keep this server up fairly often, I'd like to know if this could be heat-related or if there is a specific problem I can tackle. Thanks in advance!
