    Power Kernel Failure - Every so often

    Hey guys,
    Before i upgraded to 8.1, everything was working smoothly, now some AMD Services such as the Catalyst Control Center fails, stops working and will not restart.

    Every now and then i get a Power Kernel Failure, stops and restarts, while its restarting it takes around 5 minutes before it actually does anything, looking at the logs, its not giving a specific service or program to the crash.

    Log Name: System
    Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
    Date: 01/05/2014 19:33:11
    Event ID: 41
    Task Category: (63)
    Level: Critical
    Keywords: (2)
    User: SYSTEM
    Computer: Gaff
    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    Any help to get this resolved would be brillant!
