My computer frequently and unexpectedly powers down with a critical error Event 41 kernel power. There is no warning or other screen, it just restarts.
I bought a new power supply hoping that woudl help but it didn't
I note with some surprise that HP computers/laptops have been suffering from unexpected shutdowns for several years. Has anything been resolved and with so many complaints why not?

The first thing that you should do is, open the case and do a thorough cleaning. Dust can cause the computer to overheat and cause the symptoms that you are experiencing. I have found that this is the problem many times.

I'm sorry but this doesn't help. I have already replaced the power supply so have opened it up and have checked the fans are working an all the obvious stuff. If you check this website this seems a common problem with a wide range of HP computers going back to 2009.
Thanks for trying. is there further suggestions please? I would appreciate any help
