Bsod driver_power_state_failure

Hello. I have been experiencing rather frequent BSOD over the last few days. The first few happened as I was transferring data from one HDD to the other. The latest one happened while clicking a link. That's when I got the Driver power state failure error message. Thanks for any help in advance.

EDIT: Also, I ran memtest86 and did a SFC /scannow, no errors returned.

Ok, I've done that. Should I wait until the next incident?

I configured my computer to create a small dump, but I can't find it. I don't know if it's been included with the zip I've included in this post. Thanks for any assistance.
