Hello, I have had my PC for well over 2 years now.

I had this issue last year and it went away by itself but it is now back and annoying as ever.

Problem:

While gaming, my monitor randomly goes black screen and i get a "No signal" on my monitor. I can still however, hear sound from the game/discord, and my fans then go up to 100% and I am forced to force-restart the PC.


I monitor my temps and there is no overheating.

However when I check Reliability Monitor I find this error:

Reliability Monitor

On some other different event ID error, these are the causes as mentioned below, but yours might be different. Your issue seems to be related more like to a Video card TDR failure, imo, Most probably corrupt GPU or system drivers. Have you tried doing a FRESH OS re-install as a last resort ?

Try doing a clean system BOOT.

Kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly, IMO. When a PC that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message might be generated.

An event 41 is used to report that something unexpected happened that prevented Windows from shutting down correctly. To determine what may have happened and to identify a potential resolution, it is important to know what the computer was doing at the time just before the event occurred.

If event 41 is logged because power to the computer was interrupted, consider obtaining an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) such as a battery backup power supply. An underpowered or failing power supply may cause this behavior. For example, if you added RAM or additional devices or hard disks when this problem began, the power supply may cause issues.

Try changing the POWER settings in Windows OS. But I think this Kernel-Power critical error is usually power-related, and indicate something wrong with the computer's PSU (Power Supply Unit). Oxidation on the back of the PSU switch might be the cause. In this case, contact a technician to check the PSU, as replacing it could solve the problem.

Another possible reason for this critical error is overheating. Computer usually shuts down when the temperature was too high ?
