Windows 7: Kernel power 41 (63) Error Problems with reading minidump files.

10 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Proffesional - 32 Bit
Kernel power 41 (63) no minidumps at all in C:/windows/minidump


Im new on this forum let me introduce myself.

My name is Snowman
I'm 16 Years old.
And im from the Netherlands.

I have a Brand new Pc this is my setup:

AMD Phenom ii x4 965
Ati Radeon hd 5770
Asrock 870 extreme3
Ocz 700W
2x 2 Gb Kingston 1333 mhz

My computer randomly freezes so that means i cannot move with my mouse or use my keyboard. So i have to restart it everytime i crash.

My event log says kernel power 41 (63)

Iv'e Noticed that my computer crashes right after startup.
So when my computer is in windows and my computer finished loading programs it freezes also it crashes in startup at the motherboard screen.

The strange thing is when i play heavy games on this computer Battlefield 3 beta + Crisis 2 my computer DOESNT crash at all.
But when i'm browsing on my computer on youtube or just watching movies it crashes.

I have used this program before : Windows_NT6_BSOD_v3.03_jcgriff2_.exe
Im stuck at Step 3 when the analyses finishes i see on my screen a Folder with alot of txt. Files. It Could be nice if someone could help me with it.

If i check my Minidump folder in C/Windows/minidump it is empty.
I dont know why it is my computer says minidump files are Enabled.

Also my Cpu fan makes alot of noise It is the standard cpu fan that came with it
When im playing these heavy games it makes that heavy noise everytime.
Could it be the Cpu fan?

List of Things i did to try to fix this:
1. Memtest 86. 10 Passes no errors
2. Updated and reinstalled ati drivers
3. Disabled secondary audio Driver from realtek

This is all what i did.

I'm sorry for my grammar mistakes

Any Suggestions?
