Del XPS8700 restarts Windows 8.1 and Critical Kernel-Power, Event ID 41, Task 63

My 6 month old Dell XPS8700 has been restarting regularly and I couldn’t figure out why, checking Windows Events I saw it was always the same error Critical – Kernel-Power and Event ID 41 and Task 63.

Upon researching this it seemed likely that the power supply was faulty, my surge protector was faulty or my socket was not ground properly.

In this forum I noticed this video posting which seemed to be an easy fix.

Simply go to power settings or search power, on the left of the window clock on Choose what the power buttons do, then click on Change settings that are currently unavailable, then simply uncheck Turn on fast startup.
