Windows 7: BSOD for the 2nd time after many frozen screens

BSOD for the 2nd time after many frozen screens

I'm not terribly familiar with troubleshooting for computers. I've used them for years but haven't had any real issues until this new laptop.

I got a BSOD for the 2nd time stating Driver power state failure. I tried updating windows since I thought that was the problem but apparently not.

The BSOD said to check for any improper new installations (that could be anything really since this computer is relatively new) And also to disable bios memery options such as caching and shadowing (huh?)

It could be related to the antivirus avast but I don't know since it could be anything

So I'm a little stuck...any help would be appreciated

It seems you have 2 Anti-viruses installed. Although Avast is good, for troubleshooting please uninstall both and install Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Probably caused by : usbhub.sys

Showing that is having troubles powering usb device. What USB devices do you have attached? Follow this tutorial USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off and disable them.

After post back results.

Its only been a day but so far so good. I deleted an anti-virus and disabled the usb selective suspend. I do use my usb posts quite a bit so i hope that won't be a problem in time. Thanks

Wait over night to see if you get a BSOD. Then enable the ports. Then see if you get a BSOD. If so then we know it the ports.
