Windows 7: BSOD Driver power state failure

BSOD Driver power state failure

Hi, all I just clean installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on my Dell Vostro 1310 with 3gb ram, 1.8gHz Core2Duo, and 250gb hd. However I am getting BSOD stating driver power state failures, the computer will power up and work fine for about 20-mins then it will crash like clock work.
I do not have any exclamation marks in the device manager, I have update all my drivers with the latest and greatest Vista 32bit drivers from Dell as that is all they have right not, and I even updated the bios.
I tried to analyze the dump files myself but every time I attempt to install the debugging software it hangs at the progress bar until it becomes unresponsive then eventually crash the system. I have attached a dump file for review, if someone is willing to help me out.
Thanks

The OS becomes exasperated because the combination of the disk hardware and the drivers responsible for controlling it are taking too long to deal with a power state transition.

Try to update this driver...

... and get rid of this one:

Ultimately, if the problem is not caused by a driver, the disk hardware itself may be suspect. Hopefully it's a driver!

In the short term, you may be able to work around the issue by disabling all power management - set everything to run at 100% constantly.

-----------------------------------
EDIT: BTW, the "do you have question marks in devmgmt.msc?" line of BSOD troubleshooting is a waste of time. The one thing you can pretty much rule out as the cause of a BSOD is the lack-of-driver for a device which hasn't been detected and enabled.

On a whim I just pulled my SD card and all the problems stopped responsiveness came back and no crashing.

Interesting. So presumably the drive which is slow to respond is the SD one. Thanks for letting us know.

this crash was caused by a driver causing an inconsistant power state I notice that there are some incredibly old drivers and suspect one them for the crash.

I suggest upgrading all the critical drivers like BIOS, video, wifi, etc
