BSOD,Drive power state failure.

I forgot to copy the information i had in the window that pop'd up.
I have a dell n5110 and am running windows 7 64bit with intel core i5.

I believe that this has something to do with my wireless drivers(or is affecting it somehow.)
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Your intel wireless 5000 driver seems to have an issue.
The best thing you can do for starters is to just grab a fresh copy of the driver and reinstall .
http://downloadcenter.intel.com

Should be listed under Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 5000 Series Adapter Driver

If you update the driver and the problem occurs again post back.
It's possible to have multiple issues however the wifi driver is definitely causing the vast majority of your problems.

AV can cause program launch problems and in some cases bsod's, they are generally not related to a specific driver in the debugger window like this was though.
It's actually not the first time I have seen this driver cause problems for someone either.

Of course simplifying the power plan for the system under power options can also help avoid problems like this.

There is one setting in there I recommend everyone turn off.
To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.

It's one of the few features in windows 7 that just doesn't seem to work quite the way it was intended
