    I thought when you look at the logs and select "View Details" or something like that, that it does get pretty specific.

    Yes true, but sometimes MS event viewer does not express enough detail in terms of definitions. This excel file has over 380 detailed event ID definitions in " Lehman terms ", albeit it does not have every single ID code definition, and has not been updated in a while.

    There is a free tool

    http://www.eventlogxp.com/

    or a site searche though there are more available

    The above site also has resolutions and is very extensive in detail and possible causes and fixes.

    Regards,
