Whenever a computer running Windows suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or Blue screen of death or Stop Error, the first thing that is often thought about is a hardware failure. In reality, most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, most computers running Windows do not show a blue screen unless they are configured to do so. Instead, these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.
