Windows 10: Random Restarts when playing games. Kernel errors (41). Solved

    Random Restarts when playing games. Kernel errors (41).


    ***THIS IS ALSO OVER AT THE BSOD SECTION. I'M CONTINUING IT THERE.***

    Upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro.
    I think I took care of the update bug so I don't believe it is the issue.

    Updated GForce Drivers after using DisplayDriverUninstaller.
    SSD C: Drive firmware updated.
    Ran Memtest86+ on each stick for 8 passes with no errors.
    Updated audio drivers.
    Updated network drivers.
    Updated SATA drivers.
    Ran Windows Defender Full Scan with no findings.
    Ran Malwarebytes Full Scan with no findings.

    Using a 2 year old Corsair HX850W PSU.
    Nothing is overclocked.

    It happens when I play games. I ran one 3DMark test with no issues. Ran it again and it reset as it normally does. I ran Furmark with no issues.

    Stumped!

    Just had the same thing happen to me. No errors, or anything that would be suspicious.
    The Kernel error 41 is just an error that says the computer was shut down with being powered off properly. You'll get the same error if you hold down the power button to shut off the machine instead of shutting it down through windows.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    I did upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10. I was having a separate issue that had plagued me for weeks, but was able to solve it, but just last night, before I posted, the computer randomly restarted.

    I completed a fresh install of Windows 10 pro. Had similar results: reset when playing games or running 3D Benchmarks.
