BSOD when shutting down and restarting the comp DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAI

hi and thanks for ur time reading this

so here the story,
i installed (after formating ofc) a new windows 7 32Bit ultimate on a lenovo G510 machine,
installed all the latest drivers from lenovo website, and updated windows with the latest update.

the problem:
when i restart or shutdown the machine the screens turn off but the led + laptop fan are still working for around 9-10min, after this amount of time the computer shows Bluescreen (which is not in the minidump folder)and restart it self automaticly. from what i remmber couple of month ago it as the same issue, thats why i formated and installed a fresh new os

here is what i did,
sfc /scannow
chkdsk /f /r /x
used hd sentinel - came clean 100%/100% 50C
memtest (from windows) did 3 rounds - came clean
updated the latest bios driver for this computer
did a clean boot (disabled all the startup program)

i tried to install 2 microsoft hotfix kb977307 and kb977186 but both of them showd an erro "the update is not applicable to your computer"

i had 2 bsod error

1, irql not less or equal (some time its happening i dont have the minidump of it cuz i formated the disk)
2, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (this one happen all the time when restarting or shutdown the comp, but it leaves no minidump) 0x0000009f

ntkrnlpa.exe and halmacpi.exe showing in red in bluescreenview.

its a brand new OS install so no way Virus or rootkit could got in.

i attached the dmp to this thread

thanks alot hope u guys could help out
