Windows 7: .Kernal Power error ID - 41.

01 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
.Kernal Power error ID - 41.

Hey guys,

I have been facing a wierd problem recently. My desktop monitor turns off itself after a few minutes but the CPU works, I can hear the fan running and see the lights blinking. One thing I noticed is that when the monitor turns off, the Orange light on the CPU stays on which normally just blinks. My PC works normally on safe mode, but the worst part about safe mode is that I cannot work on my software CorelDRAW. Can this be the SMPS problem? because recently my mouse and keyboard inputs were not working because of which I got a USB keyboard and mouse. I have recently installed Windows 7 64bit, but I think that should not cause the problem as I have worked with 64bit Windows before on the same machine.

PC configuration -

Intel Core 2 Duo 4500 @ 2.20Ghz Processor
ASUS P5QPL-AM Motherboard
No Graphic Card (Maybe inbuilt, not sure)
1TB Hardisk

I checked the Event Viewer and came through a critical error, here is the error log

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 01-Aug-12 5:41:39 PM
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
Keywords: (2)
Computer: Sunny-PC
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

<Data Name="BugcheckParameter4">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="SleepInProgress">true</Data>
<Data Name="PowerButtonTimestamp">0</Data>

And I also checked the power settings before and the monitor is set to TURN OFF in 15 minutes when kept IDLE. But I don't think that may be the problem.

Please someone provide me with the solution to this problem...Thanks in advance

I also suffered the same problem for long time, but by software tuning it is improved now.
Please try next regulations, if you want.

(I'm convinced this issue comes from software bugs only. i.e. Windows 7 only.)
