I'm looking in event viewer and there are suspicious things happening before I get a random restart (Kernel Power 41 error). It almost seems like the os is restarting while its on? This only happens when I am playing games like MW3 and Team Fortress 2.

Events in order (top = first)

A few things are entering the stopped state.

The operating system started at system time ‎2012‎-‎01‎-‎10T18:53:19.125599400Z.

File System Filter 'FileInfo' (6.1, ‎2009‎-‎07‎-‎13T15:34:25.000000000Z) has successfully loaded and registered with Filter Manager.

The previous system shutdown at 10:52:18 AM on ‎1/‎10/‎2012 was unexpected.

Microsoft (R) Windows (R) 6.01. 7601 Service Pack 1 Multiprocessor Free.

The system uptime is 14 seconds. (*It didn't reboot recently. It's been on for hours.))

File System Filter 'MpFilter' (6.1, ‎2011‎-‎04‎-‎06T12:07:29.000000000Z) has successfully loaded and registered with Filter Manager.

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

There are not any .dmp files in the attachment, lets check that your PC is setup to create them.

In the Start menu right click on Computer, select Properties from the list, in the left pane of the popup window select Advanced System Settings, in the settings window click on the Advanced tab, at the bottom under Startup and Recovery click on the settings button and make sure the settings are set like the image below.

Have you checked the voltages and temp with Hardware Monitor if not please do so, and post a screen shot of the HWM window with all the trees expanded.

I've had that minidump set up before the crashes started happening but it never put anything in that folder. I even scanned my whole computer for .dmp and nothing.
My CPU is running full load right now because I'm running a CPU stress test called Prime95 to see if it's a hardware issue that's causing the crashes.

Nothing that pops into mind, since it's not actually shutting down or blue screening it seems more software related to me.
What are you talking about? In windows 7, there is an automatic reboot to replace the BSOD. I am getting the Kernel Power 41 error.
