In at least the following situations, I have experienced that the kernel has shut down during evaluation. The thing is that there is no message at all when it shuts down.

SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]];
temp = Partition[Flatten[Import["temp.dat", "Table"]], 3];
ResetDirectory[];

ListContourPlot[temp]

P.S. The file temp.dat is in the following link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7611247/temp.dat.

Why has the kernel shut down without any warning message? What can I check or how can I fix it?

    $\begingroup$ Could you please edit your post and include the simplest example of the suspect code that is causing the kernel to crash? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Or try ListContourPlot[temp, DataRange -> All]? $\endgroup$
