Windows 7: BSOD Driver_power_state_failure

BSOD Driver_power_state_failure

Earlier today i had a BSOD while my laptop was shutting down.
It's 4-5 months old and came with Windows 7 64 bit pre-installed, however its only a few days ago since i ran OS recovery and reinstalled windows.

I recently tried virtualization with VMware player and i got a feeling that it is the cause of the problem but i'm not sure.

Start be installing these updated ATI drivers: ATI Catalyst
Your current ones are a bit old:
atikmpag.sys     Fri Dec 11 14:51:08 2009 (4B22A2AC)
atipmdag.sys     Fri Dec 11 15:33:38 2009 (4B22ACA2)
Also install the following drivers; links are to the right.
jmcr.sys         Thu Jul 09 08:45:19 2009 (4A55E65F) - JMicron Card Reader -
NETw5s64.sys     Tue Sep 15 15:40:39 2009 (4AAFEDB7) - Intel WiFi -〈=eng
Rt64win7.sys     Fri May 22 10:52:30 2009 (4A16BC2E) - Realtek Ethernet - Realtek
Remove Threatfire with this tool:

Replace it with MSE:
NSKernel.sys     Wed Nov 03 17:35:04 2010 (4CD1D588)
NSNetmon.sys     Wed Nov 03 17:34:55 2010 (4CD1D57F)
Now there is a good chance this is caused by hardware, so it may pay to run some diagnostics. Start by running a RAM test: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
