Kernel Power Event 41 - VIDEO_ENGINE_TIMEOUT_DETECTED (141) - amdkmdag.sys

Kernel Power Event ID 41

CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 2700x w/ CoolerMaster 240mm closed-loop liquid cooler
GPU - Asus Arez AMD Radeon RX Vega 64

PSU - Corsair SF750 - BRAND NEW NO FIX (replaced Corsair AX1200i in fix attempt)

Seemingly random crash while gaming. Doesn't matter which game: Destiny 2, RDR2, KSP, BF, CoD, etc. For some reason it doesn't happen to PCMark10 or 3DMark, completes both full benchmarks with no issues. No BSOD, no reboot, just complete flatline. The screen goes black and the fans throttle to 100%. I have to hold the power button until the fans stop then power it back on. No overheating. No overclocking. I've tried DDU and install drivers I know work as well as nearly every one in between. I've completely reset windows and formatted the drives. I've replaced the RAM. Ran MemTest on sold and new sticks, full tests with no errors. I’ve also replaced the PSU, even though the old one tested fine, to no avail.

Microsoft: Advanced troubleshooting for Event ID 41: "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down fir...

The geek page: [Resolved] Kernel Power 41 Critical Error on Windows 10

And perhaps also run a memory test with free memtest86+  its a very small s/w and fits easily on a CD or USB stick and the computer must be booted from this (You will have to change the boot order in BIOS).

memtest86+ then automatically starts running memory test, let it be running over night or over a full day.
The test takes longer time when more memory is installed and it will keep running until You shut off the computer.
The test will stop automatically when an error is detected.
Download here:

Just a thought that this could be Your problem or at least ruled it out.

As stated in my original post, I already ran MemTest. Full test, 4 passes on all 4 sticks. No errors.

The Microsoft wiz kids told me to come here. The dump identifies AMD software as the culprit.

Did you try modifying TdrLevel and TdrDelay registry values?

I have neither in my registry.

Obviously. You'll have to add it yourself. Google might help. Some people say significantly lowering core clock might help.

is AMD's new campaign, burning old cards to sell more new video cards. 🤣
