    Random Full System Lock, event 41

    Hello all,

    My problem is a crashing problem, but is not a BSOD. I couldn't find anywhere else to post this, and this sub-section seemed like the most relevant. If there is somewhere else I should be posting this, please let me know.

    So I have been having this problem with my computer. I bought this computer and assembled it myself, last year. Ever since I assembled it, it has randomly crashed (to be specific, the screen turns a random colour, I hear sound for a few seconds, then sound loops, only way to solve is hard restart). This went on as a consistent but random problem ever since then. I have changed every piece of the computer hardware except the power supply (Corsair 750TX), CPU (Core i7 2600k), and main HDD (Intel 120GB SSD). I have run many hardware tests, reinstalled (windows 7 at the time) several times, and still the issue persisted. I found that not using an internet browser program prolonged the time until the computer crashed, but it only delayed it. I paid several shop owners in my area to look at the machine, and all agreed that it seemed to be in perfect working order.

    I converted to Windows 8 a week ago, and have everything set up nicely, play some games, use Firefox, etc. and no problem. I was just played a game of League of Legends, and my computer did the SAME crashing thing as it did before. I found out about event viewer, so I looked around there, and being a fresh install, there wasnt much to look through, so I easily found a critical error (which was just the hard restart I had to do), and an application error (something to do with Firefox, called plugin-container.exe). I found this forums and thought I would post asking for help. If there is any additional information I can provide I will do so happily, just let me know.

    There is one more relevant fact that might be useful: when my computer boots up, it goes in this sequence: POST, BIOS, *restart itself*, POST, BIOS, Windows. I am not sure why it does that, or if it is relevant, but I thought I would mention it anyhow.

    Thank you for your help,

    Welcome to Eight Forums BrnGths.

    Even if you haven't had a BSoD/crash, can you upload the entire BSOD Posting Instructions files, these will help us analyze your crash.

    This is a hardware issue.
    The beeps are a code that tells you what the problem is, count the number and length of beeps, this code will loop.
    Your motherboard manual ASUS P8Z68 PRO Gen3, download it if you don't have it.

    For more system information: Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
    For posting the information , type 'Snipping tool' in the Start screen. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

    Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller (VCCIO for your motherboard) voltages are.

    Use Real Temp , to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
    Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.
