Driver power state failure - BSOD, misc. shenannigans on Win7 x64

By salukikev

  1. So this one is particularly frustrating because this is such a fresh install of win7 64 bit. Other than install a bunch of apps, the only thing I really did was make some directory changes to the registry such that default installs get sent to my D: partition instead of my C: (system) partition. I did rearrange the partition at one point to increase size of C: without deleting data using partition-wizard. Other than this BSOD which happens only occasionally- but consistently and randomly, things seem to be pretty smooth.

    Without further ado- the attached files which I cannot make any sense from supposedly describe the problem.

    There are no evident problems in the device manager- and now that I'm mentioning it- the only recent hardware problem has to do with my LCD monitor- which has slowly descending bars of the type you would see when filming a CRT monitor with a camera due to refresh rate. However, I would be surprised to hear that is related to this crash.

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any help identifying/correcting this highly aggravating problem!

    no ideas?

    So is this pretty well an unsolvable problem? I went thru the steps outlined in the sticky and I still haven't come up with any solution. Am I missing any clues to this puzzle? If I could connect this error with a piece of hardware or resource, I'm pretty sure I could fix it. I find it amazing that microsoft would deliver this abstract error instead of just instructing you more specifically as to what is causing it.
