Windows 7: Multiple BSoD most recent being DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

Multiple BSoD most recent being DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

My Computer started blue screening a while ago while playing video games.
It only occurred on certain games and then became more frequent.
Now blue screens on any game and sometimes randomly while not gaming.

I've tried a number of fixes including fresh driver installs and making sure all drivers are updated.

I thought it was maybe overheating so i cleaned out the fans as well but is didn't seem to solve it, but i have only blue screened once since then.

From what i have researched via google; it appears that the bsod is pointing to your nvidia files for your graphics card. I would first try uninstalling all software for the graphics card and then reinstall the software and go from there. If that does not do anything; post back and we can go from there. Also; check to make sure your system is not getting too hot. Make sure the fans are operating properly, etc.

I tried what you suggested and tested a game out and blue screened instantly.
Now my GPU doesn't appear on my device manager.
Do you think it may be a hardware problem?
