Hey guys! i wanted to know...i had this kernel problem for over 11 months now and it was happening all the time, i tried a lot of things and it got MUCH better, 5 minutes ago the crash happend but before that it didnt happen for over 1 month, now the crash happend even BEFORE entering OS, i have a asrock motherboard, when i start up the pc a logo saying asrock loads into the OS, but the crash happend rigth there! 10 sec after turning the pc on...does that mean that my hardware is faulty? (BIOS is in stock, everything like it was when i bougth it! if anyone has any ideas let me know! should i buy new psu? motherboard? gpu? cpu? ram? thanks.

event 41 is a reaction to a restart, not the cause of one. it doesn't mean PSU is bad, not by itself anyway. Windows 10 runs a report at startup, if it finds previous shutdown was bad, it makes event 41. It may not know why it crashed.

What are specs of the PC?
Are you getting BSOD or does PC just restart?

Hey! Ryzen 5 1600 not oc, rx 580 not oc, xpg 3000mhz ram 2 sticks, psu b700h 700w (gugabyte) 1 tb barracuda hdd and a steel legend b450m micro atx, no bsod and the pc dont restart, it just frezees and makes a buzzing noise and the monitor stays black, but you have to manually force the pc to turn off and later on again

psu b700h 700w (gigabyte)
Gigabyte PSU aren't the best, how old is it?

so it turns monitor off. But leaves PC running. But its frozen...

I don't like guessing so lets test a few things

Try running memtest86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 4 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the freeze. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors.
Memtest is created as a bootable USB so that you don’t need windows to run it, just to make usb.

hard to test some things if it crashes right away
CPU
Prime 95 bootable - https://www.infopackets.com/news/10113/how-fix-bootable-prime95-stress-test-hardware
Prime 95 Guide: http://www.playtool.com/pages/prime95/prime95.html

can't test GPU if PC shutdown right away, ryzen cpu don't have igpu except for a few of them.

can test hdd with this - https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/61944-seatools-dos-hard-drive-diagnostic.html but i don't think its hdd.

PSU
the paper clip method - https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/what-is-the-paperclip-method-of-testing-a-psu.1336402/

or multimeter,

or in the BIOS to check the +3.3V, +5V, and +12V. - https://www.lifewire.com/power-supply-voltage-tolerances-2624583

that is pretty much everything.

Hm, i guess i can try it!
The thing is im really done with this pc! Ive been thinking about buying a new one (intel) because now it has more problems, fps drops in games like fortnite and cs go, no fos drops on SUPER heavy games tho, but yeah, the psu is not even 1 yr old!! Its all “new” but i need to get a better cpu etc, i will try my best on memtest etc, if i need go know anything else please tell me! Im pretending to sell this pc because the crash did mot happend in 1 month so idk, but i will try EVERY outcome, thank you :)
