So am having an issue with my laptop and this issue has been going on for a while. I haven't given it much attention since it does not happen that often, but now am worried this could be a hardware problem so maybe it is worth investigating.
Every now and then, my laptop hangs at startup. Sometimes it hangs on boot with the loading circle going on and on without actually ever booting into Windows login screen. So I must force a shut down by holding the power button on. And sometimes it just hangs on boot and shuts down by itself. (This is what happened just now so I'll post some Event Viewer logs in case they are relevant to what happened.)
Event Viewer error order:
1st Error was Event ID 6008:
The previous system shutdown at 17:58:37 on 24/09/2017 was unexpected.
This might be becuz I shut down laptop from the login screen and it might have had some process still open maybe ?!
2nd Error was Event ID 161:
Dump file creation failed due to error during dump creation.
I went into details tab and it's related to \Device\HarddiskVolume7. In Command Prompt I done a diskpart/list volume/list disk and it appears to be part of Disk 1 (Volume C where OS is installed) and it's a 903 MB hidden partition.

3rd Error was Event ID 41:Source: Kernel-PowerThe system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
