Windows 7: Kernel-Power Error ID 41 (Dump file attached)

Well I changed out the PSU. Still crashing, I am pretty sure at this point it is not a hardware error. My younger brother is playing world of warcraft for at least 2 hours straight everyday, and when I start using to browse the internet I cannot stay on for more than 25 mins without a crash. There is no different account for both of us, just the same login to windows.

If the BSODs persist, enable driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Hello,

I have enabled the verifier. A bit confused on what to do now?

Go about your normal business, just leave the computer running. You can use your machine like you usually do, but be aware chances of a BSOD are high. Make sure you save your important documents that you are working on frequently, tell your chat buddies to be aware you may suddenly disappear for a few minutes, etc.

So there is no fix? Any other suggestions? I do see that it does not freeze as much as it did.

Leave Verifier to its work, and it will start testing the drivers to try to see if any will fail. If one does fail, it will result in a BSOD, and if everything works right, the dump should point to the faulty driver.

I think I finally found the culprit to this whole ordeal. It may be the Nvidia 8400gs graphic card. I took it out and have yet to have a restart. Then I googled 8400gs and windows 7 freeze and many topics came up. Are you able to shed some light on this issue so I can confirm it?

It could very well be your graphics card causing the problem. That would not be at all surprising to me.

It's also possible that the power supply was inadequate for that card. I'd like to see a high-quality Corsair used in your machine, but if your system is working great now, I guess there is no point.

By the way, Google "7200 GS windows 7 freeze", or "9600 windows 7 freeze", you'll come up with many results. Every card will be the cause of some problems, not just the 8400 GS.

I think I finally found the problem. Well all this time I was using a spare trackball mouse, yes I know embarrassing. However, been using an optical mouse for more than 17hrs now. Will keep you guys updated.
