Windows 7: BSOD power state failure

BSOD power state failure

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 very much like to know exactly what happened.

The dump you've attached mentions memory corruption (most likely driver related until shown otherwise), although it also mentions nusb3hub.sys (NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver). It's well known to cause BSODs. You can remove it yourself, or you can update it here. Choice is yours.
