Windows 7: Consistent Black screen kernel-power 41 (63)

Consistent Black screen kernel-power 41 (63)

Hello people

Lately I have been having problems with my rig, encountering constant black screens (with hard hangs) everytime I'm trying to play a game.

So far the problems have been showing in every game I've tried included the all mighty performance sucker hearthstone (?!?!)

Anyway, I personally think that my pc is more than enough capable of running games such as diablo 3 and hearthstone without constant crashing.

My specs are as follows

i7 2600k
PNY GTX 570
PSU 1000W coolermaster silent pro gold
8 gigs of ram

Now, this is really a cry for help.
My google pages are all purpled-out since I haven't left a single one without a look regarding my problem, I really have no idea what or where to look for.

What I've done so far
Disabling audio drivers
Underclocking gpu, upping voltage of cpu by a bit, pushing gpu fan to 80%
Updating drivers, reformatting hell of a lot
ran memtest as well as monitoring msi afterburner for gpu

I've also checked all of my tempratures in my hardware, and there is nothing odd with them, when idle or even before the crash.

I've searched all over the internet, I haven't found my solution and I think I'll go mad anytime soon if I don't find one.

If there is an expert out there that is willing to help me, please do so.

Thanks in advance, I'll be keeping an eye on this thread constantly!

It's no trouble at all. Don't be concerned about that. The problem is there are no dump files in there. So, very little for us to go on. Please make sure your computer is configured for Small Memory Dumps this will show you how. Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD also, after doing that go to C:/Windows and make sure you have a folder named Minidump. If there is not one there create one named Minidump. The next time you have a BSOD or two, post the BSOD posting instructions again.

I will also suggest if you have anything overclocked, please set everything back to defaults, at least until we get you stable.

Please fill out your System Specs

Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs

Before I take any steps, and forgive me for maybe sounding dumb (I'm more of a gamer than a pc tech) I want to make clear that it's not a blue screen of death rather than a black screen without any letters or numbers.

That being said, should I proceed to take the steps you told me to?

@Denisgsv I did test the gpu, on HS it will work underclocking the card by 50, but I cannot stop it from happening on every other game.

Yes, do the steps I told you. It may or may not produce a dump file, but it needs to be set up that way anyway. The detailed system specs would be very important too. All with Manufacturer and model numbers so we can look up the components, if we need to.

Alright, everything is done. Should I try to cause the crash and report back with the minidump file?

Sure, that would help a lot if you get a blue screen. What GPU temp monitoring program are you using? Will it allow you an on screen display and a custom fan profile ? If you do it I would like the temps also.
