Is nobody willing or able to help me on this?
What am I missing. You state you have done a fresh install and the computer works as it should.
You question is concerning moving your programs from old system to new system.

Your post #5

Thanks LayBack Bear but not very helpful advice. That is a huge amount of work to reinstall all my Apps from scratch as I have more than 30 programs/games to find, download and reinstall. I thought the idea of this forum was to help Win7 users to identify and solve software problems?
Are you still getting a BSOD?

Yes - I disconnected my primary SSD drive and connected a spare SATA HDD to do a fresh install of Win 7 - this was ONLY done to test my hardware. I still want to use my original SSD with everything installed once I work out what the problem is and how to fix it

I have been into EventViwer and found Critical Error Kernel-Power 41 (63) listed every time. I have not changed anything before this started happening so at first I thought it was a hardware issue. So things I have done so far:

- updated to latest BIOS
- upgraded CPU to current i5 4690K
- upgraded CPU cooler
- bought and installed a new 1000W PSU
- re-seated RAM modules in seperate slots and tested individually
- reseated GPU Card in new PCIe slot

Nothing worked!!

I have researched all of your similar threads and tried all sorts of things suggested but still no luck

I have also run a full scan on my main SDD drive and no errors found

I think this is either a driver problem or a MB hardware issue but not sure where to go from here


PC Specs:

ASUS Formula VI LGA1150 MB
NVidia GTX590
Corsair 128GB SDD (C: Drive)
3 x 1 Tb WD HDD
8 Gb DDR5 (2 x 4Gb)
1000W Corsair PSU
Have you tried a system restore to an earlier date before the bsods?

How does it run in safemode with networking?
