Windows 7: BSOD's OCCURING REGULARLY- Alienware M17xR3

19 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Good Evening-

For the last few weeks I have started to get BSOD's three to four times a day. I do a lot of gaming but this also will occur when just sitting idle and using other programs. The one I most often get is DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE ( I cannot remember the names of the other ones). I have attached the two most recent minidump files - please assist - this "beast" is barely a a year old- Thanks in advance - and if I've posted this in the wrong area, please re-direct.

Much Appreciated!
