After updating my BIOS to V12.3 from 11xx my PC won't wake from sleep, instead it restarts.
- Why did I update BIOS? Because I had a B2 error after I installed a new GPU (GTX 970), thankfully the B2 error is gone, but now the PC wont wake from sleep properly.
I have checked the event viewer and the same critical error I get is the KERNEL-POWER EVENT ID: 41 TASK CATEGORY (63)
The 'friendly view' event data error report is:
Sleep in progress: 4 - might this be something?
I have read through a number of the threads on this, but none seems to address the exact same issue that I have with the sleep.
Anybody experience this before? Anyone have a solution?
(My PC: Intel i7 2600k, Win 10 pro, Zotac GTX 970, PSU: Be quiet 530w, MoBo: MSI Z68A g45 (g3))
Hi, I am experiencing random reboots in my pc, when it happens it will suddenly shutdown, then a few seconds later it turns on again. It has happened playing games and in idle, temperatures are completely normal, voltages on the 12v rail seem normal, I measured it using hwmonitor and most of the time it's 12,1v. Event viewer shows critical event kernel power 41 (63) and this is what i found in event details:
It started a few days ago, all instances show event id 41, and in event details "system sleep transitions to on" often varies.
EDIT: A few days ago I could make it happen by tapping the top of the case, so I opened the case and took some cables out and plugged them back in, after that I could no longer turn it off by tapping the case. However a few minutes ago I tried tapping the back of the power supply and it happened again, not only that, but after it turned back on and booted into the system, it happened again but I didn't touch the computer at all. The computer didn't suffer any physical damage as far as I know, and this power supply is around 6 months old.
