BSOD Driver Power State Failure

I am getting the bsod error driver power state failure. It appears to be random unless i go to play star wars the old republic and it does it with in about 10 minutes of playing every time. This is fairly recent. I was playing it before for several hours with out trouble, and now it does it outside of the game. I hope you can help. Attachment 312126

Hi punkiemi.

How many days ago you installed Service Pack 1? Very recently it seems?

The zip contains two crash dumps. One, the older one is related to games. And, this time the PC was not SP1 installed.
Code:
BugCheck 116, {fffffa80066fb010, fffff8800517e664, ffffffffc000000d, 3}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+97e664 )

Taking the age of your PC into consideration, stop 0x116 BSODs may occur under certain conditions.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

The PC seems to be overclocked.
Code:
  Max Speed                     2300MHz
  Current Speed                 2310MHz
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the the wattage of the PSU.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.
  • Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
  • Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

But the other BSOD, the latest one, is a different issue.
Code:
BugCheck 9F, {3, fffffa80052de050, fffff80000b9c518, fffffa800464a610}

Probably caused by : sbp2port.sys

Some discs are failing the power state during sleep/hibernate power transition. As yours is a desktop, better you disable sleep. Hopefully this issue will be over by doing it.

Let us know the situation after applying the suggestions, and let us know the results of the tests.
