Windows 7: Kernel-Power Event ID 41 BSOD playing game

Kernel-Power Event ID 41 BSOD playing game

Recently my laptop has crashed a couple of times while gaming. It first crashed around three weeks back when playing Dota 2 and today when playing Team Fortress 2. I checked my event viewer and the critical error from both occasions was Kernel Power Event ID 41. On the first crash, the screen simply went black and the laptop turned off. On the second crash, the system shut itself down and a blue screen appeared. Also the second crash was accompanied with a BugCheck error Event Id 1001 telling me a dump was saved. I've attached the dump file so hopefully it can be accessed easily on the forum. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Do some Disc checks.
  1. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  2. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Update the AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device DriverFrom AMD Chipset Drivers. It is old.

Uninstall AVG, at least for a test. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.


Let us know the results.

Windows has finished checking your disk. Please wait while your computer restarts.

SeaTools for Dos would not recognize my SATA drive. i think it is because it has to be configured in the Bios to IDE and not AHCI, but I am reluctant to do this because re-configuring it back from IDE to AHCI after the disk check will apparently require a repair install or tampering with the registry. Is there an alternative hard drive diagnostic tool to confirm there is nothing wrong with the SATA disk?

I've updated the Graphics Drivers. They were old.

I still have yet to uninstall AVG and install Microsoft Security Essentials and scan for any viruses or malware. So i'll let you know how that goes.

I haven't had any further blue screens so far. I'll test the laptop on some more games.

Hi, I got another bluescreen after I finished my game of dota 2 and closed the game down. Bluescreen view tells me the it was caused by atikmpag.sys=8df1. I think it might be a graphics driver problem. I did update my graphics drivers last week. I've uploaded the minidump zip folder. Please help.

Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Your GPU is AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6380G .... so 13.4 WHQL should be supported there.

I made sure to update my graphics driver right this time. One day later i blue screened again while playing Call of Duty 4 online. It froze, made a terrible noise, then blue screened. IRQL Not Less or Equal. It seems to only happen when playing games. Could it be faulty RAM by chance? I did upgrade my Ram about three or four months back. I ran a memtest86 with both RAM sticks in for four hours and no errors came up. Any help will be really appreciated.

There is one failing module in this crash dump. That is AVG IDS Application Activity Monitor Driver.

Uninstall AVG. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Let us know the results. Depending on those, we will decide about hardware tests.
