Kernal Power Event 41

Second time this happened... Started 10 days ago while i was doing nothing but typing a word document, then stopped. But last night as I was running a pcmark vantage test it crashed again and rebooted =(. I already tried disabling the auto reboot on crash thing and didn't work out. I also ran a memtest86+ and found no errors the first time.

Anyways heres the error

- <Event xmlns="">

  1. How are your CPU and GPU temps? Also, if overclosking anything, revert to default levels and see what happens. Sounds like a possible heat/power issue (hardware) and not a Win 7 problem. The error is just Windows indicating that there is an issue.
  2. Nope, no OC. Although I have XMP enabled for the ram, but I've had that on weeks before the problems started to occur. The thing crashed today again twice when I was running pcmark vantage... I doubt its heat because I used LinX and furmarks to stress both cpu and gpu and it didn't crash.

    Maybe driver issue?
  3. Are all of your devices showing good in Device Manager? Also, you might go into your BIOS and disable XMP and run at 1333 settings to see if that stabilizes the system.
