Yes it was the only driver missing in Device Manager, found on Asus Downloads webpage.

Keep an eye on optional Updates for newer drivers.

Only concern yourself with chronic errors which repeat. Google their text and number to see how others have solved them.

A shutdown error like you got is good to mark the time needed to check for other clues in Admin and Performance logs.

Utilize the System resources to check if it's found Problems or has solutions cued: troubleshooting steps

Hey greg, i've been checking on microsoft support which was on the top when searching for this error. he wrote basic stuff about error 41. But mine seems to be fine. then he wrote. if it has nothing to do with that. You would check your PSU could be defective or is dosent give enough power to your computer (i could also try plug in standard hardwares) i dont have any, i will try to follow your troubleshooting guide, if i find any errors there i will get back to you :)

EventID: 6008(The shutdowns) Is most likely the hardware.
EventID: 41(Kernal-Power) Is most likely the hardware.

It's a standard ATX size. If you click on the details tab in the link, it will give you the exact size.

5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 7.09"(L)

I really dont get this. I've been playing battlefield 3 the last 3 - 4 days for 2 - 5hours everytime without having any freeze or shutdown, but as soon i play world of warcraft, minecraft any other game my pc crashes, idk if i'm just lucky not getting crash doing bf3.

Battlfield is using alot more power then any other games i have. I'm afriad that the new PSU wont solve the problem...

Can my computer start if there is a defect on my mobo or CPU?

If yes, could it be the problem and not the PSU?

Yes, it can start. Unfortunately, most defects do not result in fatal results. Only annoying mysteries.

Yes, it could be a faulty motherboard. Defective processors are extremely rare.

Are you getting any messages before these crashes? If so, tell us exactly what these are.
If you post in the Crashes and Debugging forum (follow posting instructions on the thread) you might get better insight into the exact faulting component.

I assume you are not overclocking anything? But did you make any changes at all to your BIOS settings?

I will talking to a friend yesterday, He told me that if the motherboard was the problem to cause my crashes it would be giving messages. Asus motherboard should give messages.

I've getting 2 errors after my computer is crashing. Been looking up to it on google and both is hardware problem. (PSU)

I am not overclocking anything, all though my graphic card is a overclocked GPU. can't adjust that.

After the last BIOS update 1001 i've only changed so its running HDD as primary when starting up.
