Windows 7: BSOD Driver Power State Failure :/ (going on a full year now, lol)

Also, my graphics stopped working after the second BSOD and started back up today as I was able to load minecraft now

Why would you need to find drivers for a driver-complete OS. Were you planning to install XP?

How drivers are handled in Win7 is explained in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

huh, so you're saying that every driver should either be on the OS or able to update through windows update?
because whenever I do a dell install the disc they give me doesn't have about half of the drivers and windows update isn't able to find most of what it needs after I install the driver for my ethernet connection..
Wow dell is crappy.
I'm going to have to do this soon, i'll see if I can find some space to store my personal files and maybe we can start working on it soon?

But for now, it's been doing good for a solid month, then yesterday I got one and today when I logged on GuildWars2 I couldn't stop getting them..
I'm mostly curious if it's still blaming my graphics card.

Did you enable Device Installation Settings Option 3 and make sure to run all rounds of Important and Optional Updates to completion.

Never use the drivers from a disk which is outdated as soon as its burned.

Any drivers missing in Device Manager after all Updates are done can be imported from Dell Support Downloads webpage for your tag number. There are rarely more than 2-3.

I would follow Greg's suggestion first, and also update the following drivers:

Your Synaptic Touchpad Driver seems to be a possible cause, please update the driver from here - Drivers | Synaptics

Your SteelSeries Bus Enumerator driver seems to be a possible cause, please check for updates from here - SteelSeries - Downloads

I also wonder if it causing any conflicts or problems with the PCI bus.
