I've been getting simply a ton of Event ID-41 Kernel Power crashes, during which my screen simply goes black, the sound freezes for a few seconds, and it reboots.
I've had my sneaking suspicions that it has to do with my (fairly well-aged) power supply, but this is somewhat baffling since it never did this until fairly recently during Starcraft 2, Borderlands, and now Diablo 3. League of Legends seems to be mild enough that it runs without crashing, though.
Thus far, I've installed a new OS (updated from Windows 7 Home 32-bit, and am looking to get an 800W power supply from a friend. I know this has been popping up rather frequently on this forum, so I've viewed other threads as well.
-The mobo has no bent or leaking transistors, it's in mint condition as far as physical abuse goes
-I've kept the system dusted, nothing is interfering with power by contact
-The crashes only seem to happen during graphically intense games, possible my video card is going out to? (GeForce GT240)
Running D3 on normal settings runs fine but crashed frequently. Turning down the resolution and the gfx settings to low, it crashed much less frequently. This seems to be picking up, as I've had two crashes tonight within 10 minutes of gameplay.
So I'm wanting some input on what other viewers believe I should do here. Thank you.
