Kernel power event 41, I guess?

A single instance may be overlooked thinking just a hiccup in the power connections. But if it continues, let us know formally.

yeah. I'll let you know if anything happens again. It's only ever done this once. and I do have anti surge enabled on this computer so it could've surged. but those blue screens were definitely caused by the RAM.

I will not argue. Theoretically

Usual causes: Device driver - see parameters for more information

This bug check can only occur when Driver Verifier has been instructed to monitor one or more drivers. If you did not intend to use Driver Verifier, you should deactivate it. You might consider removing the driver which caused this problem as well.

So I have my reasons to believe what I have said, experience also supports this observation.

But you are the user. Will not argue with you.

I was thinking the random restart may have been to do with windows updates. This is because when windows updates sometimes it needs to restart and you have the option to postpone the restart, but it restarted when I was playing a game so the message didn't appear, and one of my friends have said his computer has restarted on its own a few times.
Is there anyway I can find out if it was windows update that caused it to restart?

Well, I got another blue screen today, but it's a different blue screen. It has 0x0000001E. by the driver nvlddmkm.sys

The bug check string says KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

I have been getting messages from Nvidia that my Graphics drivers can be updated but I declined because I've had graphics driver problems before. But would it be wise to update them?

No. Do as suggested. Post it following the BSOD posting instructions. We need to see some other files too, to provide you better suggestions.
