Computer Reboots 2 Minutes After Log On - Critical Kernel Power / Event ID 41

Aug 30, 2015

Every time I've logged into my account on my PC, it has rebooted (without showing any error message or crash screen) after a few minutes or so.

Opening event viewer, it shows event ID 41 at the time of reboot - the event before that is an event ID 6 stating "File System Filter 'FileCrypt' (10.0, ?2015?-?07?-?10T04:14:31.000000000Z) has successfully loaded and registered with Filter Manager." - I have never heard of filecrypt, the other events are all legitimate ones associated with the system booting up.

I have attempted booting in safe mode using msconfig, but that doesn't seem to work. So far, the only thing that works is by switching to an account that's barely used, where the computer runs perfectly well with no crashes.

I suspect a virus, but I haven't downloaded anything dodgy recently, and Avira (free) hasn't found anything either ...

Also, here's a link for a video taken of the reboot happening, as well as all open processes/services: [URL] ....

CPU: AMD A8-6600K @ 3.9 Ghz
RAM: 8GB, 1 stick novatech 4GB, 1 stick HyperX fury 4GB (both 1600Mhz)
GPU: MSI R7 260 1GB GDDR5 (OC)
PSU: Jeantech 430W (not best make, but has been reliable for quite some time)
HDD: 1TB Western Digital "Green"

BSOD :: Critical Error Event ID 41 After Every Shutdown And Bootup

Aug 29, 2015

Prior to upgrading to Windows 10, my system was running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. When running my previous OS (WIN 7) I rarely had errors listed in Event Viewer. Now after upgrading to Windows 10, I get errors/warnings I never used to get under Windows 7.

The error is of the "Critical" level in Event Viewer.

After doing a normal shutdown, and then booting my system, I check Event Viewer and always find the following critical error:

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

---------------------- START: Event Viewer XML error text ---------------------

- <Event xmlns="">
- <System>
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}" />

[Code] ....

I never used to get this error after doing a normal shutdown (prior to upgrade to Windows 10, when I was on Windows 7). Now it happens all the time. Why this error is occurring after doing a normal shutdown followed by a boot?

I suspect it's a glitch with the first production release of Windows 10, but I have no proof of that. My system runs fine, yet I get the above error (and a number of other errors) since I upgraded to Windows 10.

Nvidia Driver Crashes / Then PC Restarts And Get Critical Kernel-Power

Oct 27, 2015

I have been getting these nvidia driver crashes, where the monitor turns off by itself and then recovers and I can continue using it normally, but lately the drivers just crash and a few moments after, the PC reboots on its own but fails to turn on the monitor, which forces me to do a manual reboot. After the manual reboot, I go to Event Viewer and find these errors: Critical, Event ID 41, Source Kernel-Power. Error, Event ID 3, Source Kernel-EventTracing.

Unexplained PC Reboot (Kernel-Power 41 (63) Error)

Jan 8, 2016

My PC will randomly reboot when in the middle of any video game. It has not happened while I am not in a game (from what I can remember). It goes to a straight black screen, so no BSOD.

My CPU is running no hotter than 45 Celsius. It has only happened after being ran for 2 hours or more. There is NO error message upon shutdown/reboot, and I also ran a virus scan with MalwareBytes and found nothing. Event Viewer shows the "Kernel-Power 41 (63)" error.

After the reboot, it goes to my lock screen with no error message. It also loads everything on my desktop/taskbar abnormally slow.

The only thing new before the issue:
-Gigabyte Gaming 7 Motherboard
-Intel i7 4790k
-NZXT Phantom 530 (Case)
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (CPU Cooler)

My PC Specs are as follows:

CPU: i7 4790k
Motherboard: Gigabyte Gaming 7
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws X-Series 16GB (8GBx2) 1600mhz
GFX: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 4GB D5
PSU: InWin 850w Bronze
HDD: Western Digital Blue 1TB 7200 RPM
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB
Monitor: 3 ASUS 24" (One is 144hz, Two are 60hz)

BSOD :: Critical Process Died Error Listed

Dec 16, 2015

Recently while using the internet my computer experienced a BSOD which listed the Critical Process Died as the error. Before this happened my computer kept popping up with a message I believe was saying that the display adapter driver crashed and then was recovered. It should also be mentioned that I recently upgraded my system with a new graphics card, after my old one died, and with a new case. That was my first time ever doing something like that, so I wouldn't be surprised if that could be a problem.

BSOD :: Error 0x109 - Critical Structure Corruption (YouTube Playback)

Aug 8, 2015

I have this BSOD while playing youtube.

crash dump file: C:WINDOWSmemory.dmp

This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlmp.exe (nt!KeBugCheckEx+0x0)

Bugcheck code: 0x109 (0xA3A01F5A6788B6B1, 0x0, 0x4CA3D042862E2DA4, 0x101)


Bug check description: This indicates that the kernel has detected critical kernel code or data corruption.

This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.

The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

BSOD :: Critical Error - Start Menu And Cortana Aren't Working

Aug 10, 2015

That's what my husband's laptop says after signing in to Windows 10. He installed an upgrade to Windows 10 about a week ago, and no problems until yesterday - 8/9/2015. A window comes up saying "Critical Error - Start menu and Cortana aren't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in." Then there is a button within that window that says, "Sign out now."

When he clicks on "Sign out now" his laptop restarts, shows the page with the date, he is able to clear that to the sign in page, he puts in his password, hits enter, and the same critical error shows again on his desktop. He is locked into this round robin. The toolbar doesn't load all the usual icons. He clicked on the google chrome icon on the desktop one of the times, and its homepage came up, but he was unable to use the page or to access the internet. At first he was able to click on something in the lower right corner and learned that he had internet access, but he still couldn't access the internet. Now that piece of information is unavailable to him.

When he right clicks on his desktop, the right-click window comes up as usual, but when he clicks on "display settings" for example, he gets another window that says, "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." However, the slide show of his photos he uses for his desktop display or background is working well. What can he do to fix his Start Menu?

BSOD :: Kernel Security Check Error On Brand New Machine

Dec 26, 2015

I have a 3 day out of the box, Asus Zenbook pro. I am getting the BSOD fairly regularly.

I have updated both display drivers from the manufacturers website, the WIFI driver, as well as the BIOS. Everything else was up to date. I have done a hard reset, and chose to have the drive wiped during the install.

I have installed, and uninstalled the few apps that I have had time to put on here, but after only 3 days, I don't think I have given myself time to narrow down if it is a software conflict.

BSOD :: Kernel Security Check Failure - Intermittent Error

Jan 6, 2016

I recently started having a whole bunch of BSOD's with the KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE error.

I had these as I was attempting to use my laptop while I was burning DVDs (I burned about 20 or so over the last 3 days). This error happened maybe 5 or 6 times over those few days. This error happened most times on A/C power but once on battery power.

I have also had this crash occur while using photoshop on battery power (and while burning DVD's).

If using photoshop on battery power, I sometimes get BSOD's with the error DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. And this was often when I wasn't doing anything else on the computer.

I used the tool (as instructed in this forum) to create the required files for posting. I have attached two of them as I believe one may be invalid. The minidump file is fairly large (over 700 MB), so I believe this may be why it isn't attaching correctly...

Some reading I have done on the Internet shows this to potentially be an Nvidia driver/service/something problem. I am planning on uninstalling my graphics drivers + software and then reinstalling them, to see if that fixes the issue...

BSOD :: Kernel Security Check Failure - No Error Code

Jan 11, 2016

For no sure reason sometimes she gets a BSOD with no error code.Also, she gets error saying something like 'the integrated graphic card driver had a malfunction and was restored'. (It's not a literal message, because the OS is in Russian). Getting latest driver (since 08/2015) for Intel from the Acer website didn't work because (as the owner says) the OS rerolls it back to a previous one.
