I have gotten this error (kernel power 41 critical error in my system error log) a total of 23 times since I built my PC in April, and I don't know what is causing it. I already checked my system ram, and there are no problems there, and I'm wondering if I might need a bios update or if there's something else I can do. It randomly restarts my PC and it's happened twice in the last 24 hours. Not really a good thing to happen when I'm in the middle of studying for classes.

Thanks for the help in advance

System specs:

MSI Gaming M7 Z270
Intel Core i5 7600K
G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200
Asus GTX 1080 Strix
Corsair Hxi 850w 80+ Platinum PSU
Samsung 850 Evo 1TB

Well the kernel power 41 error is when Windows unexpectedly reboots, I would first check your 8-pin EPS power connector on your motherboard, second check that the 24 pin ATX power is firmly plugged in, and finally update all your drivers to the latest version (especially because you have a MSI motherboard; try updating your UEFI BIOS too for safe measures). I have nearly the same specs, except I have the i7 7700k, ASUS Maximus IX Formula mainboard, and the 1080 Ti variant of the Strix card.
