    And the only driver involved is ntoskrnl.exe

    Sorry, looks like hardware issues.

    Thanks for your help with that. Are there any obvious things I should start to test? Are there any things that I can rule out?

    About how often does this happen?

    I'd disconnect anything you don't NEED in order for the system to function (for example any addon cards, your GPU if your motherboard has integrated, stuff like that), see if the issue still happens.

    Well I just got my 6950s today so that is ruled out, the only addon card I have is my wifi card and I updated that recently, could it by my bluetooth dongle I use for dolphin? Also on my TJ07 I hide my HDD behind the drive bays and have a fan moving the air I used @active Hard disk manager and it said 27C could that be an issue?

    Edit: it only happens on shutdowns

    It -may- be a driver issue, but the people I've seen with this problem before never seemed to be able to fix it with driver updates, I'm really not sure how to figure out which hardware it is.

    It could be anything that has multiple power states. This even means some USB controllers.

    I'm unable to help you. If I had this issue, I'd be swapping out hardware to try to find the culprit.

    Another technical forum might know more about which types of hardware are more likely to have this issue than others, to make narrowing it down easier.
