Kernal-power (event id:41)

Hi all.
Laterly I've been having trouble with my computer crashing, but not rebooting straight away. To restart the computer I have to manually turn the PC off by the power switch.

After checking the event viewer I have found that each time the computer has crashed there is a log for "Kernel-Power" with Event ID: 41.

Anyone know how to fix this problem?

1. The problem is known to be sometimes caused by overclocking
2. You may need to (re)install or update a driver
3. Wrong voltages set in bios can cause this problem too (in case if you changed your bios configuration recently)

I would also run a system file check to verify and repair your system files: Start => Search => cmd => Run as admin > sfc /scannow
