As the title suggests, my BSODs seem to be random. They come while typing email, writing a word document, or doing nothing. I cannot associate it with any particular activity, software, action, button-click, etc. No recent software changes that I know of. I think that I have all of my drivers
up to date.

Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.
