It started recently where I would get critical event 41 errors from Kernel-Power

They also all mostly just hard restarted my PC without BSOD while playing Against the Storm or Gears Tactics through gamepass but the last one was BSOD while setting up my Occulus Quest 2 to steam. (And that one was related to a USB 3.0 error I am told)


Here is my V2 from 2 days ago

Ok so after updating my Bios, chipset, repairing things with sfc scan now once again I had my PC running.... Re2 remake in the background... was idle for about 2-3 hours in the background while I browsed the internet and was using my phone.

It did not create a log in mini dump C:\Windows\Minidumpbut I will post the V2 again

I noticed that all the times that it just hard restarts with event id 41 it does not create a minidump file. It was only the one time where it actually went to a BSOD.... every other time I just get hard restarts. It seems to happen alot when the game is running in the background and I am not actively playing because I am browsing the internet on chrome or on my phone browsing the web or texting.

The only thing I can say is i have tons of google chrome tabs open across 4-5 separate chromes. (like at the bottom I have 5 different sets of chrome, each with 2-15 tabs opened in each set of chrome I have open in the taskbar.... instead of just 1 chrome open with 30-50 tabs) I hope you understand what I mean.

Here is my V2 from today

https://1drv.ms/u/c/804c8b6347550df8...ir238h-_8XnV6Q

Here is the one and only minidump my system has created from the crashes in past few days. (Few days/crashes old now and I ran a SFC thing already)

I was looking on other forums and I went ahead and ran the Run Tuneup plus

Thank you GlassKuter

I am wondering if I should try and replace the PSU? I have warranty for Mobo/CPU/GPU/PSU so I am not worried about a defective part other then not being able to use my pc while I wait while sending it out. But I would prefer for it to be a driver issue still..... problem is after updating bios, chipsets, running SFC and all that..... I wonder if it's getting down to the PSU.

I also find it sooooo odd the games crash 90% of the time when I have them idling in the background while I browse the internet or idling in the foreground while I browse my phone or watch a show. Most of the time they crashed was then idling for a few hours.

So is this some sort of driver issue trying to put something to sleep or something like that? I don't think it's over heating because I have a lot of fans in my PC and It never goes above 70c for CPU/GPU ..... and sigh I just noticed my ram was at 2666mhz instead of 3600mhz

I wonder if this happened because I updated the bios using ai suite 3 bios flash?

I'm not experienced in reading log files so @zbook or one of the others will have to do that. I'm just going to give my opinion here. You have to eliminate hardware being the problem first. I would turn off all overclocking, turn off the gazillions of tabs, turn off the game running in the background and start my troubleshooting from there. Test ram with memtest86 (a minimum of 4 passes, 1 failure is a fail). You can do it while you sleep.
Stress test your CPU using Prime95 or Aida64 and your gpu using Furmark. Closely Monitor you temps closely while you do it using HWMonitor.
These are the same tests that should have been done when the system was built.
Once you know all your hardware is viable, introduce one thing at a time into the scenario.

You say: "Started getting Hard Crashes" which mean you didn't have them before.
So first step would be to verify and see any changes that may be the cause. Did you update any drivers (specially GPU) and if you did not look in windows update logs and see if windows updated anything. If YES revert the update and check again. Also if there is any new software running (normally or in background).

Also if there is any new software running (normally or in background).
I started getting them the other night while playing game pass games. Against the storm and gears tactics. I cannot think of any changes I made prior to that. Since the BSOD I have updated BIOS and chipset drivers. The last one that happened was today and I wouldn't have even known if if I didn't just check the event viewer log. I got a event 34 kernel-power error when I was sleeping..... I remember waking up and having to login to windows.... though I did not shut the PC down before I went to sleep.... so that explains it. I find it very odd that It would happen while the PC is idling on the desktop and I am not even touching it... but to be honest that seems to be when it restarts the most from event 34.... when I am idling the PC whether it be in game or not.

Windows updates in the past month are
2024-03 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Version 22H2 for x64-based Systems (KB5035853)

and like 20 windows defender updates I don't feel like copying and pasting individually unless I have too

I have no idea what Genesys Logic hardware means but my Mouse is a HyperXpulsefire and my keyboard is Razer Cynosa

You can maybe try to rollback SteelSeries ApS - Extension - 1.0.11.0 or even disable it in device manager , Just to test!
Do a google search for it and you will see many people have problems with it!
Not sure this is the problem, but it's free to try!

Ahh darn didn't realize there was a 60 minute limit on edit. I just didn't want to lose that if it reset on me. Seatools has finished. Everything passed.

So I was googling that Genesys Logic USB V2.0 4-Port Hub....... and from google they all seem to be usb 2.0s with 4 ports.... and the only 4 port hub i have in my mobo is in the back bottom row 4 parallel 1 is a usb 3.1ss 3.1ss bios(2.0) and 2.0 the two 3.1ss have my headset usb dongle, power usb for speaker and my keyboard.... .... I think I might have unplugged it from the bios port.... I unplugged it and then noticed the bios not sure which i unplugged it from. Is this the problem??? You had my check my usb for something soo.....now I wonder?? I think I might have had the keyboard plugged into the bios port..... not realizing it...... how to say how long since i last unplugged my keyboard but anyways..... could that be the issue? the keyboard worked just fine in the bios usb port.... lol but could the be causing the power failures? I will keep doing the rest of them if not.

This is the usb layout and what i got plugged into my pc.

Front is 2 usb 2.0 Zexrow xbox controller for windows, sometimes the urb charging cord for my wireless headphones. In the back.... rarely the occulus quest 3 is plugged into the usb 3.1 ss10 at the top usb with a type c usb beside it, the mouse is plugged into the 2 set usb 3.1ss in the middle row with nothing in the other (I'm going to move keyboard here now) and the bottom 4 that are usb 3.1ss/3.1ss/bios/2.0 that I now have just the usb dongle for wireless headset, power usb for speaker and nothing else in the other 3 with formerly having the keyboard into the bios port prior to this post ><

I got a restart again today. IT wasn't the BIOS port.

In order these two things happened right before the Power Kernel error 41.
Hypervisor launch failed; Either SVM not present or not enabled in BIOS.
The virtualization-based security enablement policy check at phase 0 failed with status: Virtual Secure Mode (VSM) is not initialized. The hypervisor or VSM may not be present or enabled.
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

here is the V2 from today if curious THEBEAST-(2024-03-21_08-51-57).zip

Ok I am starting the HD Tune and the rest today.... and will post the rest. Got busy last night. The Windows Long Generic test all passed on sea tools. (A few of them took hours) but they all came up as passed.

My ssd's are full, the read/writes are affected. Doing the rest. Just FYI I don't think it would be my ssds/storage as they are all fairly new except the HDD but I will continue to do these tests.

I already know my Hitachi HDD has bad sectors.... I only use it for storage of unimportant files now and barely use it because I don't want to kill it completely. It's had bad sectors for like a year now. Well before the restarts started happening, and nothing runs off of it... It's purely storage.

Doing the Hitachi HDD scan now....... then have both the 1tb Nvmes to do....

Btw I was deff running a game off my 870 QVO while doing these tests in the background.... prob affected read/write performance..... but that shouldn't matter so I don't care.

These storage tests are so long. I can't wait to get to the next steps.... :)

Ok finally done with these.... sleepy finish more tomorrow :)|

Yes I know my hdd have some bad sectors, it been like that for a long time now. Well before the restarts and BSOD happened.

Next step is "
6) Run chkdsk /b /v on all drives using the syntax chkdsk /b /v C: or chkdsk /b /v D: or chkdsk /b /v E: etc.

Make sure that chkdsk /b /v C: runs overnight while sleeping."


So I will do that right meow oh dear lord it's another storage checking step.

Why are you convinced it's my storage causing this hard restart problem? I figure it would be more a driver, hardware, windows being stinky..... power error etc. My ssd/nvme strorage is all new except the HDD which is like 15 years old from the PC i bought working at mcdonalds when I was 15 xD It's kind of special to me and the fact it works all these years later with just a few bad sectors....... and such a crazy long "power on time"

There were event viewer reports that are being evaluated to reduce the likelihood of any surprise drive / data problems.

The BSODs were likely related to Genesys Logic.

Ok I need to figure this out then.... I'm not gonna do any more storage stuff.
There is a problem anyways.....

I can't do that next step while I sleep because.... Every morning I wake up..... MY computer is off despite not turning it off, and I go and check event viewer and sure enough... another event 41 kernel power error. It seems to always crash around 10-11am now.

I will try to figure out this Genesys Logic thing..... thank you! <3

The BSODs were likely related to Genesys Logic.
Let's not forget that..... the one BSOD that I got that actually created a minidump file was when I plugged in my occulus quest 2 into my pc and it actually caused a blue screen BSOD....

All these other "hard restarts and shutdowns" DO NOT CAUSE A blue BSOD it just crashes/restart.

So if you are basing Genesys Logic off of that one crash that actually caused me a BSOD and created a minidump crash file then I'm not sure if that's the same thing that is causing my hard restarts/shutdowns while gaming or while pc is idle when I am sleeping.

Do you think the two are related? I have a feeling that one BSOD that had to do with my occulus quest 2 being plugged into the USB might be an anomaly but I am the one asking for help here so I will take your advice/opinion over mine.

The oculus was also seen in the BSOD.


Some options now are:

a) Run the computer overnight in safe mode > report any unexpected shutdowns and restarts > post V2 share links

b) Run a Windows tool designed to stress test drivers

Yes I just plugged the occulus into the USB at the back and my pc shutdown and created that only log I was able to get from C:\Windows\Minidump. So the occulus/USB one was the only one that gave me the actual BSOD and the log. I think it was an insolated/one off issue to the other shutdowns I am getting mid game or when the computer is idling for long periods.

I Just found a thread talking about the 3080 power spiking How to determine if the last shutdown was due to power failure in windows?

I'm wondering if it's GPU power spikes causing the issue. I mean I am running an 850w.... so it's hard to say. Only a 5600x that's not really overclocked unless I Bother to open Ryen Master. the 2 ssd's 2 nvme's and 8 fans. (1 back, 2 top, 3 front, and 2 on cpu cooler)


Another thing I just thought off.... So my pc was crashing/stopping with no BSOD at least once a day for about a week+...... yesterday it did not do it. The only thing I can think of right now is that I created my space on my Windows SSD on the samsung 870. I was down do about 90GB on a 2tb SSD. Could low space on C drive have caused the issue?

I will run the pc in safe mode when I go to sleep tonight. And I Will try the drivers thing.



Thank you!
