    could be many things. not enough info.

    ram or hard disk is first things i check.
    try hirens boot cd.

    if u suspect virus, id run combofix from bleepingcomputer.com first.
    then malwarebytes.

    likely its ram or hard disk.. but sometimes its a driver like video or audio.

    You could always try this method and upgrade over the existing Windows 7 installation.

    go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion


    Change "Edition" from "xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" to "Professional"
    Similarly change the "ProductName" from "Windows 7 xxxxxxxxx" to "Windows 7 Professional"

    And then try upgrading. A clean installation is always an option too

    this is my very first post here

    oh and i checked the hard drive a nd ram like you suggested. I thought it was because both ram were in same slot so i saw to that
    and audio drivers. i recently installed realtek. which i uninstalled using glary today. apart from that there was one audio driver from the intel site which was to make my computer detect my microphone. I still can't figure out what to do

    Pannychis, your approach is not correct. Kernel event 41 is not what crashes the computer, it simply informs that the computer has crashed and had to be hard reset. You still need to find out what is crashing your machine. The only logical way is to install windbg (vymrdal already linked above), add the symbol path then run windbg. Hopefully it'll point to the culprit driver or memory corruption etc.

    You have 2 options:

    1. Clean install of Win7 Ultimate and activate using Windows Loader by Daz - which I highly recommend.

    2. Use WAT Fix and then use Daz Loader. ;)

    reinstalled a SQUEAKY clean copy of windows 7 but the damned problem still exists. the only relief the time period between each Damnation increased from 15 to 45 minutes. So that i can google longer and may be download some light fix .. my machine is 8 years Antique and duly upgraded. this has never happened before :(

    Check your audio drivers. Go to Computer, Manage, Device Manager

    uninstall your audio drivers then right click in the window, scan for hardware changes.

    Change restart behaviour so you can see the stop error.


    1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    2. Click Advanced system settings.
    3. Click the Advanced tab.
    4. In the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings.
    5. Click to clear the Automatically restart check box.

    then likely u have a bad power supply if ram checks out...but board is not out of question.
    friend had D945GCNL that died in 3 yrs with power issues similar to your at first.

    since then i buy gigabyte boards.. my G31m-ES2L v1 is still running 4 yrs
