Headscratcher- BSOD + Power Kernel 41


G223 Powerspec a couple of months old and still under warranty. A week or so into owning it - starts giving BSODs, usually when playing games but should all be manageable. Take it in to MC but they cant replicate issue with stress test and claimed updated drivers. PC immediately has issues - same ones. I have done two clean installs of windows, make sure graphics drivers are updated, etc. Look into it more with some help from chat support, but want to make sure I have done all I can do before I take it in again, fearing they will find nothing wrong with it.


BSODs include non_page _fault_eror (maybe the most common), system_thread_exception_nothandled, memory_management, security_kernel_failure, store_data_corruption, and even a critical_process_died. Sometimes games will crash straight into BSOD sometimes they crash first and BSOD later. Some BSODs have occured without games running.

event manager shows each time there is a BSOD/ there is a critical code Power Kernel 41.

Is there something possibly going on with the CPU here, maybe BIOS changes that might help? Or hardware failure? Any help appreciated.
