BSOD Driver State Power Failure

Intermittently I get this blue screen. The latest crash occurred as I was typing so i don't think it has anything to do with sleep mode as someone suggested.

I have not installed anything lately other than adobe photoshop and lightroom updates.

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome aboard :)

It is caused by the display driver.
Code:
!irp fffffa80172e7670
Irp is active with 4 stacks 3 is current (= 0xfffffa80172e77d0)

And it is very old ....

Apply the latest version of nVidia display driver.
You may download it directly, from our forum link Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7; or you may opt for the Option 2 of Drivers- Download NVIDIA Drivers for “Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products” (it requires java installed).



Let us know the results.

thanks. I updated the video drivers last night. I'll post back in a week if it fixes the problem. Sooner if I get another crash. Are you running windbg on the crash dumps?
