Question Help! BsoD - volmgr 161 then kernel-power 41; unexpected store exception

Aug 23, 2022

My computer has started crashing and I have no clue what to do. In the event log, I get a volmgr 161 error, then a power 41 critical shut off. My BsoD states its an unexpected storage issue. I've updated all my drivers and followed most guides on the internet and nothing has resolved the issues. I'm pretty lost when it comes to what to do next so if anyone has any suggestions or guidance it would be very much appreciated.

the TBW figure for that drive is 150, you only currently on 51
its been on 4x more times than my drive, but appears to be younger.

might want to keep an eye on health. smaller drives have less spare space to use for error correction

just in case the cause isn't the actual drive
Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD - that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

  1. Open Windows File Explore
  2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
  3. Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
  4. Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
  5. Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
  6. Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
  7. Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .

After making the changes no mini dump is being created. What has changed is that now when the computer bsod, it freezes at the 0% mark and stalls there. I've waited about ~15 mins to see if there was any change but there wasn't. Any idea what might be causing this? I'd love to be able to get a dump file to share.

thats more an indication the cause is the drive itself.

Dump files are created on C drive, so if its the drive causing the Error, it can't write to it.

I would buy a new ssd and use that one as storage as it might last longer if it is used less.
