The log you have created shows no useful information and I bet system logs would also list a critical error41 indicating an unexpected shutdown.

This error is very often driver related so check in Control Panel> Device Manager for any yellow triangles that would indicate a bad driver. Should any show up then delete the driver or update it. The possibly corrupted offender would be reloaded on next boot up or go to the manufacturer's web site and obtain the latest driver.
