Windows 7: BSOD random, "Driver Power State Failure"

BSOD random, "Driver Power State Failure"

New windows 7 install on one of my home built workstations. I have an appearantly random BSOD. It sometimes runs for days, sometimes hours. I may have multiple issues (I have not been around to see it). Usually I start folding at home (stanford project) and leave it when I am not using the terminal for CAD, CAM or FEA. I just upgraded to windows 7 for this build so I would fall in the noob catogory for windows 7 user. (example:I just figured out how to unhide all the folders). I am also not the only user of this machine so who knows what has been done in the last couple weeks.

The hardware is all the same as it was running xp with the exception of the harddrive (new Intel 520 240gb ssd) on a fresh OS install from new hd. Also the motherboard got a bios update. From the name of the BSOD I would guess my drivers need updating but between windows update, intel updates and EVGA updates I haven't found any that haven't been updated. I updated my forum computer hardware list if you need that.

Any help fixing this would be great.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Problematic Software:

Keeping two antiviruses on a computer will create conflicts. Please uninstall both ESET and Norton, they are known to contribute in BSOD-s.

Start Menu	Default:Start Menu	Default
Start Menu\Programs\ESET	Public:Start Menu\Programs\ESET	Public
Start Menu\Programs\Norton 360	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Norton 360	Public
Replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:- Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.
