I'll do a clean reinstall now. May I know which nvidia driver are you using?

That's a random google image I'm not running NVidia but go for the most recent WHQL certified one or if that is the one you are using go back one version and try

Ah I found out why you said the first the screenshot looks distorted. After I unticked xtreme burn-in and post-fx in the settings, it looks similar to the screenshot you posted. I also tried running GPU benchmarks test with furmark. Sometimes it resulted in immediate reboot, other times it let me do the test without restart.

I guess today's condition is the worst one. Booting into Windows would cause restart as well. It happened like 4 times in a row (or probably more, kinda lost count here...)

Other time it let me get into Windows without auto rebooting then I tried opening Google Chrome, bam it restarted yet again. Very frustrating.

Well, at least this time it let me opened the browser to make a forum post.

Did you find any solutions to your problem?

I am experiencing a very similar issue, and I am dying to find a solution ((((

The Kernel Stop 41 error is a power interruption fault. There are five potential causes as listed by Microsoft:

I think your power supply may not be up to the task.

I was under the impression that te author of this topic has found a solution, given that he hasn't further replied for 2 weeks.

So I am eager to hear what his solution was/is :-)

It was power supply failure. I returned it to the shop and they gave me a new one. It is working fine now.

Very glad to hear that you've solved your pproblem.

My issue is pretty much the same as you had. Started out slowly, then graduately getting worse.

The past few times I have opened Heroes of the Storm my computer has crashed within 10 seconds of being in the menus. (The crashes are reboots - no BSOD etc.)

So I kind of started using Hots as a "test".. If I could open it, and I would crash, whatever I had changed didn't work.

I was thinking that it was GPU related, so I decided to try and take the GPU out the my system, and then open the same game, this resulted in no crash - So I thought I had a faulty GPU. However, after some internet browsing my computer rebooted again, and when it turned back on (after being completely idle) after 20 minutes it rebooted again...

So I am thinking I have a faulty PSU aswell.. Thanks for the update :-)
