Windows 7: Windows 7 Frequently Crashing/Restarting

Windows 7 Frequently Crashing/Restarting

My Gateway LX Series has been acting up for awhile recently, shutting off on it's own at sporadic rates. Sometimes my computer will stay on for hours, other times it will shut itself off after a few minutes. About a month ago I got a BSOD with the driver_power_state_failure message. I reinstalled my Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and things seemed to be okay for a day or two but then problems continued. I started my PC up in Safe Mode and it stayed on all day, no power failure, I did a device check and it came up with 2 errors:

Consumer IR Device has a driver problem.
eHome Infared Receiver(USBCIR) has a driver problem.

I tried fixing them through the device manager and both failed.

It has Windows 7 32 bit installed.
The original OS on the system was Vista.
The Windows 7 is a full retail version.

The hardware is around 1 and a half to 2 years old.
The last time I installed Windows 7 was about a month ago.

I have attached the zip file with the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder & the PERFMON HTML.
