Windows 7: NO BSOD, Random restarts, Kernel 41

NO BSOD, Random restarts, Kernel 41

Hello guys, first time on the boards here. system specs:
ASUS AMD 990 FX mobo
AMD fx 6100 3.31Ghz processor
16GB corsair vengence RAM (4X4)
Kingston SSDnow100 128GB
EVGA Geforce GTX580
and of course runnig Windows 7 64 bit OS

Little back ground on me, served in the Army for four years where i learned all i know about comps (which isnt alot) however, i built my first comp last year and it was great, however now, been getting random restarts for no apparent reason, began investigating forums like this one.

Found that it MAY be the HD or the PSU, switched out my PSU from a thermaltake 750w to a corsair 850w JUST IN CASE i wasnt getting enough power to my components. worked for about a day, tried feeding the power directly from wall thinking it MAY be the power strip, worked for a few days so i bought a new one from best buy, then a few days later it happened again. NOW im thinking OK, now it HAAS to be that shiny new kingston SSD!! I had a slave HD figured why not, installed Win7 to it, it ran fine for about 2-3 weeks, then last night BAM! instead of shooting the comp i did more research, checked the event viewer found that it is definately a kernel 41, went to Windows site and followed a tip from them to make sure the auto restart feature was unchecked. now im waiting for another restart. the only thing left is the ram, because the old power supply i gave to a friend of mine and HE has been using it for a few weeks now, called him up today said the PSU was working fine that the only time it restarted on him was because of FWupdate.exe or something.

Ok so anyway, other than the above story and system specs, what information can i provide for you guys that will help you help me diagnose this problem?

Ok so I've done a little digging and found: 1. It COULD be a driver issue with realtek.... And 2. Up my voltages on my bios

Thoughts or opinions?
Just tried to boot up to try updating the driver to "take that out of the water" but it won't even let me boot up with the windows DVD in the rom... Lol. I can get to the bios however.... Fyi
