    "Windows Error Recovery" System did not shut down properly


    I've recently been getting this message when playing Rust and Sniper Elite V2, I also get it if I bump my computer desk too hard. I tried the "Last Known Good Configuration" fix but it didn't work, and I tried the "Repair Your Computer" option, but when I get to the log-in part, my keyboard won't work. I've had the computer for a few months but the problem only occurred a few weeks ago, and and has only been a serious issue this past week.

    If your are just bumping your desk the computer is sitting on or around I'm thinking you have a loose connection from things like the wall outlet to the computer or a power connection inside the case.
    A faulty power supply. Their are many things that would cause this.
    I would check ALL connections.

    As ICit2lol has requested. System Specs are needed.

    I checked all cables, some were a bit loose, I put the power bar in a place where the cables shouldn't move. I've bumped my desk before and everything was fine, so I have my doubts if it's completely because of the cables, but I hope it is, since that's an easy fix.

    Your power bar it's self can be the cause or in rare case it could be the power button on the computer tower (case) sticking. Check power button harness connection to the motherboard.

    I don't think it's the power button, the computer turns off a different way if I just click the power button, nor does anything about it make me think it's stuck or malfunctioning.

    The power bar is quite old, but I still do't think it's that, as this problem almost only occurs when playing a game.

    I don't know how playing games has anything to do with hitting your desk.
    Please explain.
    Check Event Viewer for code 41.

    A kernel power 41 event is an abnormal shutdown,

    They aren't related, the message only appears in the past couple weeks when playing sniper elite V2 and Rust. A couple times when I've bumped my desk, the message also appeared. But there are times when I bump my desk and the message doesn't appear.

    Hmm that code 41 there are fewGoogle's I have found that relate to a either a problem within the Devicemanager or that a driver has been installed for a device before it has beenactually installed.

    So I would firstly suggest runningthese

    https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

    https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html<if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

    My second port of call after thatwould be to remove the GPU and uninstall the driver then reinstall it after thecard has been reseated. .
    Driver - Desktop

    Having said that I think Layback Bear has a point in the looseness of the power lead itself it could be a faulty connection at the PSU end too - now I an NOT suggesting you tamper or try and fiddle with that device - just check to see if it wobbles around at all.
