Windows 7: win 7 reboots randomly Kernel-Power

I believe the default stting of 5% is not enough to maintain stability running more than 2 gb of ram.
Okay, I followed through what you did, but after the Processor power management selection, there is no "minimum processor state" option. Only thing there is "system cooling policy", and there is nothing under that menu either.

Could you walk yourself back through this, and tell me if I'm doing something wrong? I get the same menus after "Change plan settings" next to any of the preferred or hidden plans.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with SP1

I had the same problem with the kernel-power 41 issue (bugcheck 0) - replaced the ram and psu but still happened. But finally found the fix: Try this
1st Uninstall your sound driver (mine was Sigmatel) & Reboot
2nd Download DriverSweeper from and install it
3rd Tick the ASUS Sound, Creative Sound and Realtek Sound, then press ANALYSE - when the results are shown press CLEAN. Reboot as directed
4th Reinstall correct sound driver for your system - reboot if prompted
And thats it - worked for me

Windows 7

hi guys,
after many months of being fine my computer has decied to do this error all over again. there seems to be no fix for it anywhere on the internet and im really lost as to what to do next. im still getting the exact same error with exactly the same details. Has anyone managed to find the solution to the problem?

I have found the minidump files this is the error i get:

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: dump_dumpfve.sys

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x00000117 (0xfffffa80041bd4e0, 0xfffff88004934e64, 0x0000000000000000,

*** dump_dumpfve.sys - Address 0xfffffa8005889620 base at 0xfffff88005d27000 DateStamp

thanks for any help that someone may give

Kernel Power

Well change of plan folks - but now i can honestly say ive found the cause of my crashes - turns out it wasnt the sound driver but my Intel Wifi 5300 Driver (version

Once uninstalled i reverted back to the system default (microsoft drivers) and now 2 weeks without 1 single crash - used Prime95 many times but still no issues with Kernel Power ID 41

Windows 7 Pro 32
Same problem

Hello, I too am having this problem. Changing the minimum processor state didn't work for me. Disabling Intel Speedstep did not appear to be an option in my BIOS (Intel desktop mobo). I tried a bios update and that too had no effect. I am hoping a better PSU will be the answer...

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I have been having a similar problem as a lot of people.
It first started a few days ago. I have had Windows 7 running on my system fine for at least 6 months (running a little slower than it should but I thought it was because i messed some stuff up) and then it randomly shut off while installing Adobe CS5. When I restarted it it got to the desktop, as it was connecting to my network it froze. I manually rebooted it. After that it would shut off anywhere from the time the Windows booting up screen showed up to less than a second after the desktop loaded with a BSOD.

I switched out my RAM and Video Card, reformatted my computer and had the same issue, reinstalled again and same exact issue.

I took apart my computer, reassembled it, zerod out my hard drive, ran diagnostics on my hard drive and memory with no errors. I installed Windows 7 again. While downloading updates it shut down. Now it shuts shown within a few seconds or half an hour of my computer starting.

My Power Supply is 1000 wats (don't ask why) so I don't believe it is insufficient power. I have NO IDEA what to do. Anybody have any ideas?!

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I noticed that for me when I go to the System Rating thing and I have it rate my computer, it gets to "tuning windows media decoding" and more often than not my computer shuts off (a few times it completed and once everything completely froze). Does anybody else have this issue/know why?
