    Frequent BSODs. Please help

    Since December 2014, I have been getting frequent BSODs with the error message, "Driver_Power_State_Failure". Tried googling for solutions but to no avail. The issue has been persistent.

    Could anyone pls tell me what's wrong?

    *not sure if it's the right file. the zip file i have shows nothing inside while this file wasnt zipped so i zip it up!

    Hi herzog21,

    Welcome to the 8forums.

    Please visit Windows Update and install every update available, it may take a couple of times to get them all.

    Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
    Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.
    1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
    2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
      • Double click the executable to open it
      • Click on the button shown below

    If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window.

    Please update or remove iTunes.
    A driver from Gear, used by iTunes, has been flagged in every recent dump file.

I am at a standstill ever since I recieved this BSOD. At first I thought it was just a random crash and that I would've resolved it later, however it became frequent in just a matter of minutes. Playing a game, browsing the internet, listening to music, anything I do will result in another BSOD...
