Random BSODs, ntoskrnl, driver power state failure reports on minidump

Windows 7 laptop running fine, suddenly 2 BSODs today, within an hour. First occurred while surfing (firefox), second occurred without any keyboard/mouse activity. No new hardware installed since new hard drive about a month ago. SF attached. TIA

Sorry for the late reply, Your dump files are not opening for me.
But you should remove some add ons to firefox, specially the adxloader.dll

Description:
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Users\RWT\AppData\Roaming\DocuSign\DocuSign Ink\adxloader.dll.Manifest".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Users\RWT\AppData\Roaming\DocuSign\DocuSign Ink\adxloader.dll.Manifest" on line 2. The manifest file root element must be assembly.
It may be the cause of the crash while using firefox.

Just a question, when the keyboard and mouse was inactive and you got the crash, was the Cyberlink editing program in use? The event log says so, and actually that program failed there.

You should update the nvidia display driver, too.
Code:
Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys (8.17.12.7527, 10.09 MB (10,583,656 bytes), 6/23/2011 6:38 PM)
Update your WiFi driver.
Code:
Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\netw5s32.sys (13.1.1.1, 6.44 MB (6,755,840 bytes), 1/13/2010 3:36 PM)
Update ethernet controller driver.
Code:
Driver    c:\windows\system32\drivers\yk62x86.sys (11.43.1.3, 310.28 KB (317,728 bytes), 5/26/2011 2:29 AM)
Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
Let us know the situation.

No need for apology, I know you folks are bizzie. Thx for the help. I'm updating the drivers as we speak. Going to uninstall the docusign stuff, don't need it anymore. Cyberlink was not running (intentionally) during BSOD. Odd that the log would indicate otherwise. I need to investigate whats running in the background.

No BSODs today.

Re msconfig...I try to keep a close watch on this for surprises. Besides Eset the only things starting up are rocketdock , printer stuff, and sidebar.

thx again
