I had to shut down my computer through the power button earlier due to it being unresponsive after leaving it to idle and hibernate for 10 minutes. It didn't respond anymore to the mouse moving or the keyboard input so it was stuck. I checked the event logs and a critical Kernel-Power error 41 was shown in the event viewer, which was the result of the unresponsive shutdown itself. There was this consistent error 56 that kept appearing at random dates:
*"Driver ACPI returned invalid ID for a child device (1)."
I did some searching and some of the threads from various websites said that it was a memory issue and that I should do a memory diagnostic test. For good measure I ran startup repair but there seemed to be no problem with that. I ran memory diagnostic tests (Standard, Default, 2 passes) 3 times now and no logs or pop ups have appeared after restart, and there is no log in the event viewer that mentions the memory diagnostic results; apart from the memory diagnostic schedule. I have looked thoroughly through the System Logs, and even the Applications and Services logs via Microsoft/Windows/MemoryDiagnostic-Results and it only shows the previous Memory Diagnostic Tests I have conducted a month ago and more. This has been frustrating me. If it's worth mentioning, my Windows 7 Ultimate had expired recently, so this may be the cause of it not appearing?
