My system reboots randomly at or just after login with no BSOD. Component Store was repaired with DISM, but that only corrected a login issue. Crash is caused by the driver service failing to load a driver, each time is different.
Most recent cause of crash was logged as follows:
The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\SensorsAndLocationEnum\LPSensorSWDevice.

Any help would be appreciated.

-Update your chipset drivers to get sensor type drivers to load correctly.
Failure in to load these drivers would not reboot your machine.

-A reset of the CPU without a BSOD in windows generally indicates a Power issue. A good power supply that detects that its own power is fluctuating will send a signal to the motherboard to reset the CPU.

The power supply may detect too low voltage on one line, or too much current being pulled by a device and tells the motherboard to shutdown to protect it. Take caution on if you swap out the power supply. I once swapped a power supply that was shutting down the system with a cheap one for testing. The cheap one would not shut down the motherboard. The problem ended up being a graphics card that went bad, the crappy power supply did not shut down and the motherboard/graphics card ended pulling too much current and catching fire.

I now only get good power supplies that actually check their own signals

I have a brand new, top of the line PSU that I bought in December when my old one quit. My chipset driver is the most recent one. Although, my chipset driver is also the driver for my SATA/RAID controller, and the Device Manager reports that the driver for this is a Microsoft driver, rather than AMD.

Please read through these (they're less than a page each)

i think this is whats causing the problems: the power supply! I had a hunch, and i was right all along.

My PSU is a Thermaltake Smartpower 750w (80plus bronze). I thought it was a bit crappy, but hey it must be resetting the cpu which is good - no fireballs here thankyou very much: johnbll did they replace your fireball pc for you under warranty?

I get these black screen crashes quite often in games (once per session, per day)
