Windows 7: Another Kernal Power 41...

Another Kernal Power 41...

I will start off stating that I have done a bit of searching and tried what others suggest and still to no vial. This issue start occurring as of 2 days ago, I was planning on re installing windows 7 anyway, even before I started getting the error. Did the fresh install, and shortly after getting it back up and running it started crashing again. I had this issue happen about 6 months ago, and as it turned out it was an audio driver that was causing it. Tried to un install the driver, same issue, updated the realtek audio drive, same issue. Then I moved onto thinking it might be Bitdefender causing it, switched to Norton and still causing it.

No BSOD or dump files to get any help so I am kind of dead in the water and running out of ideas to try. I am fairly confident that it's software related as it is stable when I run Mint off my flash drive. The other think I was thinking of doing was to disable the audio driver completely and monitor if it does it again. Any other ideas?

Hi forcedinduktion.

If you post a BSOD, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hello,

As far as I am told, Event Id 41 does not trigger a BSOD or a dump file as it crashes before it can dump the cores.

This error could be caused if
  • the system stopped responding,
  • crashed, or
  • lost power unexpectedly.
So this event may be logged for a BSOD issue with 33.33% chance only. Fortunately yours is not a BSOD issue.

In the subforum BSOD Help and Support we discuss with BSOD issues only. If you post it in an appropriate section of the forum you will get better responses.

Right, like I stated in my origonal post, no BSOD was logged. I will try to look a different section.

Thanks for your help.

Just came across this...this is not indicative that its the PSU, as soon as I hit to run the test with FurMark the computer immediately crashes. Then on boot it gives me an error that the computer shut down due to unstable power to prevent damage.

Was crashing the benchmark tests. Turned off anti-surge in the BIOS and running the test smoothly now. Maybe it was motherboard related and it was a little sensitive with current firmware and something was triggering it. Currently running the latest BIOS software.

Maybe I should consider getting a UPS? But the mobo has other counter measures against ripples so it might be fine.
