  1. Recently I have been getting BSoD due to power driver state failure. Attached is a recent minidump file. Can anyone help me determine which driver or program is causing the problem?

    Do you have Partition 8 Magic or the latest iTunes software installed?

    If you are still having issues then the culprit is the driver GEARAspiWDM.sys and this comes with your iTunes.

    I ran a search and found several instances of the GEARAspiWDM.sys.

    What should I do with these files to fix the problem?

    I think the problem is Java related because I am getting a Java auto update pop-up with each start up after the BSoD failure.

    Most recent mini dump is attached.

    Thanks!

    Check to see if you have several Java versions installed. If you do then uninstall all of them and install only the latest.
