Windows 7: BSOD: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE, about twice daily

04 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional

I have a computer I built here that started getting BSODs after moving from one location to another. The things that changed were: pata dvd/rw drive from one brand to another; monitor from a DVI connected 17" dell untrasharp to a hdmi connected Samsung 27"; house power wiring- from modern 3 wire house (w/ earth ground) to an older 2 wire (no ground) house.

The most disturbing issue is that this particular samsung monitor in use starts flashing with any source, after a BSOD. This is the second monitor in use, because the first would not go out of the flashing mode.

I've attached the dump files etc, can anybody pinpoint the cause of this?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi, Recently (last 2 weeks) my computer has started to BSOD, at first i thought these were as a result of using DC++ as they only seemed to happen when downloading with DC++ but now they seem to happen at random. I'm not sure if the previous BSOD's had the same "Driver_Power_State_Failure" error...
