Carshing during Gaming (Kernel-Power: Event ID 41)

  Spiderpug 18:05 20 Nov 2016

I keep getting crashes when I play video games. It will either freeze, have a BSOD or a red screen. They started a few weeks ago when I got Arkham Knight on steam sale. I've since uninstalled the game, but the problems persists.

These only occur when playing graphics intensive games like Total War or Arkham Knight. It's never crashed playing lower powered games like Skyrim or during general PC use.

All these crashes are Kernel-Power: Event ID 41 Task Category 63 critical errors. BSOD messages include 'System Thread Exception Not Handled' and 'Kernel Security Check Failure'.

I've checked all my drivers with Driver Booster, all up to date. I'm on Windows 10.

My system meets or exceeds the recommended specs for all of my games.

My specs as follows:

Operating System Windows 10 Home 64-bit CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 17 °C Thuban 45nm Technology RAM 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24) Motherboard ASUSTeK Computer INC. M4A87TD EVO (AM3) 27 °C Graphics E2240 ([email protected]) 4096MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 380 Series (Sapphire/PCPartner) 33 °C Storage 931GB Western Digital WDC WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 ATA Device (SATA) 26 °C Optical Drives HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW CH10LS20 ATA Device DiscSoft Virtual SCSI CdRom Device Audio Logitech G35 Gaming Headset

I've included a link of my last 3 mini dumps.

Is there another PSU that you could borrow to test in your computer? I think these random shutdowns can often be caused by a PSU surging or giving off weird voltages so it might be worth putting a different PSU in to rule that out as the problem.
