Hi all,

I am in need of some help as I am unsure on how to resolve this issue I am having. My PC provides me with a critical error (Kernel-Power Event 41) in the event viewer every time I launch my PC and sometimes whilst playing graphically intensive games my PC will just freeze and reboot itself, this has also happened once whilst watching YouTube. This has been happening since the 15th of April according to event viewer, and the issue I am having is trying to shorten this problem down to a specific issue using the BugCheckCode that is provided once the PC reboots. The reason why I am having problems is due to the event viewer giving me 3 different codes over the course of a month. The codes I have currently been given are BugCheckCodes: 281, 59, and 122.

I know that BugCheckCode 281 is the error VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR which is something to do with the GPU, so I tried to clear the drivers using DDU and installing the latest ones again but it did not fix the issue. When I look at parameter 1 as https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/bug-check-0x119---video-scheduler-internal-error suggests that I should, it does not provide me with the same codes that are shown on that page as the code I have been given, as shown below in BugCheckParameter1.

First Error:

I would really appreciate any help as I really don't know what the issue could be or how to go about resolving the errors I have been given.

Kernel-Power Event 41 dont tell much, it just a generic the system was shut down improperly. When your system reboots for no reason you need to look into the Error logs to see what errors happened in the last hour.

What are your full system specs, make and model of PSU and how long have you had it.

Thanks for the quick response, my system is an ASUS ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti and an Intel i9-9900k with 32GB Corsair Vengeance 3200Mhz, 2TB Intel 760p M.2 NVME, ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero Motherboard and PSU is a Corsair 650W TX-M gold rated. I have had the system for about 2 and a half years but the PSU has been changed in the last year as the other one of the same make and model had a problem with the internal fan. The system is also at stock speeds, never overclocked it.

Just from my own experiences, that 650w PSU is not enough.

Computer in sig, i had a EVGA 750W G2 PSU and i would get random reboots during gaming or my secondary monitor would just turn off and a few seconds later turn back on in normal tasks. Swapped it out for the 1600w G2, from an older build i wasn't using any more, and have not had a single problem ever since.

I would move to a 850W minimum or a 1000w,

Did you try using pc without gpu driver, only standard windows gpu driver?, you will lose all shared memory, it will have effect on your games, but you could play without kernel power issues. this is a bug since windows 8, some errors that you can trace to the most needed hardware driver like gpu, chipset, sata or any important hardware, windows and pc components manufacturer likely won't fix, because is more useful to get the latest hardware compatibility than fixing older hardware compatibility issues.
