Windows 7: BSOD Driver Power State Failure (Flash/Tablet?)

BSOD Driver Power State Failure (Flash/Tablet?)

Hey so I recently started using Adobe Flash CS5 on my computer with my tablet for drawing. My computer has been randomly crashing even when I'm not using Flash but still have the tablet plugged in. I've lowered down my computers appearance and what not to look more like XP to give me more memory but it stills happens.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

* A Driver Power State Failure has nothing to do with memory etc. Its a driver issue. Some PnP device drivers fail to react within the designed time during active/inactive power state changes. Most probably it is some driver relating to that tablet, but without seeing the crash dump it is hard to infer any more.
