Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
BSOD Driver_Power_State_Failure stop code 9F

Windows 7 Professional x64 with SP1 OEM
Dell Precision M6600
System was purchased new with the above OS in March 2012. The OS has not been reinstalled. I also run VMWare Workstation.
This BSOD started yesterday and has occurred 4 times since. I noticed the latest time that my onboard SD card reader disconnected/reconnected then CPU usage went to ~25%. Attempting to shut down to resolve the issue results in the BSOD. My current power setting is High Performance.

These were Related to VMparport.sys parallel port driver from VMware Inc, Inc. Yours is from 2009 and seriously needs updating or removal.

Other old drivers really needing updating

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
Driver Reference Table (DRT)

Symantec is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
