Windows 7: Event 41 Kernel-Power, error 0x8000000000000002

11 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit (6.1, Build 7601(
Event 41 Kernel-Power, error 0x8000000000000002

Good day all

I been experiencing a frustrating lock up the past few months. I built up a new system and it has been running very well the past year. But in the past 2 - 3 months I been experiencing my PC locking up. Be it playing a game etc ( Diablo 3 , LOL , Tera , Rift ) or just listening to a simple MP3 on AIMP3. I would also experience it whilst leaving a torrent running over night , to wake up the following morning , to see my PC "Frozen" in a sense.

For example , I would be practising guitar to guitar pro , and BAM , The monitor switches off , but I can still hear the sound etc. same story for MP3 and gaming. everything hard locks , but I can still hear the PC's sound.

I looked into my event viewer and noticed my pc was shooting out the critical event, event 41 Kernel Power. It happens at random , which makes troubleshooting a pain. I can go a week or so without hassle , then there are days where I cant do anything at all , as the pc freezes up every 5 - 15 minutes.

I have just replaced my PSU (with a Corsair GM850 ) and my memory (with Corsair Vengeance Pro 1800 ) , thinking that would solve my problem , but to no avail... same thing happening. My Temps are all running well below what they should be as well.

The only way to "remedy" the issue is to reset my PC and hope and pray that I don't get the freezing to happen.

This is really frustrating me at the moment , as I have no clue on what the problem maybe. I've uploaded my latest SF file. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
