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

Well, I just cleaned out the fans, and the CPU fan was disgusting (I posted a pic a while back.)

The most recent crash could have been due to installing a driver and updating Java at the same time.
I noticed that the java update was acting funny and probably should have just reset my laptop at that point, but oh well.
It has been noticeably better since Blue has been helping me.

You may not even need Java. I'd keep it uninstalled until something prompts for it.

Now another little trick you can try if you like because if the fans were dirty then the rad is almost certainly filthy as well. If you get some of that chenille wire that kids play with it looks like pipe cleaners and they will do as well you can GENTLY push them in through the exhaust vent slots with fans running or giving quick air blasts from the fan side to get a lot of that out.

Warning make sure you put a stopper in the fan blades before blasting with air the speed caused by the air blast can have very detrimental effects on the fan bearings. Plus do not push the wicks in more than 3 cm.

I just noticed Gregs comment - good move I have had no probs without it on board.

I use Java for a large variety of things.
many games require it and I am going to school to be a programmer.
Java is kinda my main focus. haha

Hey everyone, it's been a while. I'm not sure if you still get message for this thread, but i'm gonna try.
It's been going well for quite some time, but now i'm getting BlueScreens left and right.. No idea why..

There's been three new ones since the last time I was here.
Thank again..

Did you ever do the Clean Reinstall or is this still the factory preinstall, which as I explained much earlier is the worst possible install one can have of Win7.

Why come to the top resource for getting and keeping a perfect Win7 install and ignore our offer to help you get and keep one?

If that's my graphics card, I can't tell, haha. Yes
It's the version Dell gives to their users and they haven't given out their version of any of the updates for my card in over a year.

And Greg, I'm not ignoring you, it's just not something I want to do right now.
I need somewhere to store a backup of my data and I'm not in a place where I can go buy 300Gbs of storage.
Soon I will be doing the fresh install of Windows, and I would be honored to have you guide me through it.
I hate finding drivers I need, Dell has horrible service for it

Turn off Link State Power Management for the time being.

PCIe Link State Power Management - Turn On or Off in Windows

And observe if it is still BSODing with sleep or not.

I'll try that.
It is a power state failure..
Thanks
Also, I don't use sleep mode.
My computer boots fast enough for me to just hibernate it when I'm not using it.
