  1. It says it's a driver power state failure. I don't recall installing any new hardwares these days, so what possibly can drivers do to cause such errors?

    I have included a minidump file, which I can't view because this computer doesn't have a debug tool..Plz anyone view it and tell me what happened! Thx.

    Its normally best to have at least 5 minidumps to analyse. This one does state it is driver related but the driver mentioned is 4 years old so I doubt if that is the actual cause.

    This process will identify any faulty drivers.

    I would also run the system file checker. Click on Start and type sfc /scannow (include the gap)in the run box and hit enter, you will probably be asked for the Windows xp sp3 disc.
