I think this is the 'Last chance saloon' for me and gaming. Cutting to the chase whilst gaming the game crashes and takes out Windows too
Consequently Event Viewer reports a very unhelpful error message:: Kernel-PowerEvent ID: 41 Task Category (63)
Below is a list of fixes provided by the game distributors and other well meaning Techy Guru's that have not succeeded and/or raised grounds for concern:
- Re-installed game
- Install game on a second/slave HD instead
- Run the game as Administrator
- Verify the Integrity of the Game Cache
- Check your Antivirus Settings
- Run Steam as Administrator
- Choose to run the game in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 3) (not available only Vista & Windows server 2008)
- Update Windows
- Monitor PC for any over heating issues
The above topic error message is the only critical error message that appears in Event Viewer when I am gaming, The game normally crashes 10 -15 mins in to it,
but Windows 7 seems to work perfectly fine until I begin gaming. My PC has been upgraded recently and more than exceeds the minimum spec for the game I am 'Trying' to play
I installed Windows Kits with the Debugging tool feature hoping this may help ID the problem
I have uploaded the mini dump file and also DxDiag.txt file too hoping someone can make sense of it.
So far I have obviously run 'Debugging Tools for Windows' in the background before I begin gaming, when the game crashes normally after about 10 to 15 minutes of play it takes out Windows too, so I am not sure that the dump file uploaded is of any help in identifying the cause(s) but I hope someone can let me know.

Appreciate any help from anyone who wants to lend a hand.
