BSOD: Driver_Power_State_Failure

Hello, I've been recently encountering a BSOD that's been extremely frequent as of lately and not sure why. I've switched hard drives back about 6 months ago, as my old one crashed. It started off being a every now and then thing, but as of lately (Past couple weeks if not past month) it's become extremely frequent (I've had 3 of this same BSOD in the past 2 hours!) I didn't start having these BSOD until I put in the newer HDD but it does not make sense considering it's been becoming more and more frequent and I'm not sure why. I've installed updates, ran system checks, diagnostics, virus scans, registry cleaning, Defragging, Updating drivers and chipsets, making sure everything is connected if not testing it with other devices (Like making sure the hdd is working and not corrupt that would be causing it) and still no results. I'm hoping you guys might be able to figure out as to why my computer is having these so constantly.

Here's my dump file:

Here's my system specs:
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
8GB Ram
AMD X4  3.20 GHZ

Thank in advance!

Did you check the processor, compound, and heat sink? Test the memory?

Usually the wattage is written on the outside of the power supply so check the back
of the computer case. If not you will need to check inside the case. 

After checking determining the wattage of the power supply you will then need to check
the requirements of the motherboard and devices. Usually the video card is one of the
major power users.

How do I determine how big my power supply is?

Other good sources of information are the device makers' sites and their forums.
