Windows 7: BSOD Power State Failure - Please help

28 Nov 2010   #11

windows 7

I re-installed Vipre just to see what the problem was. I did not install the firewall, only the virus part and I have not had any crashes. So, it appears to be the Vipre firewall that was causing all the issues (and perhaps the outdated drivers).

thanks guys for the help.

Curtis, you are welcome. It is a pleasure working with you. Vipre is not that good of an antivirus program; it is not rated nearly as high as MSE. If your wish to try a good 3rd party, try Avast. The current version of Avast is designed to run with Win 7. It has an email scanner which MSE lacks.

Woke up one day a couple weeks ago to find my laptop's onboard fan screaming. I opened the laptop to find a lovely BSOD awaiting me. All I caught before I killed the power to the machine was the term "power state failure". I'm not sure what happened, and I'm not too concerned about it now, but I'd...
