it shuts down, just suddenly or the official Windows way. . you get logged out and then your computer shutsdown.

Does it happen with all USB devices or just the flash drive ?

btw. What's on the flashdrive ...

it's a flash reader actually

'when i plug it in when the computer is off, the computer doesnt even turn on.
when i plug it in while the computer is on, it just shuts down & it'll restart if i pull it out.

(since i'm computer deficient) how exactly do i read the event log to find out why the computer shut down?
