BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

I get these failures every few days.   Please tell me what is needed to stop these from happening.  I'd be glad to send one or more of the 'mini dump' files. I have quite a few of them... 

Thank you.

Yes it is a bit technical however one step at a time and it becomes a lot easier.

1st check the top part of the troubleshooter posted on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 4:17 AM.
Do that check and the main User possible solutions are to update the major drivers as in
the message posted on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 4:18 AM.

After updating drivers if the same problem still persists then I would uninstall my antvirus
just to see if it were causing the issue. Be careful while it is uninstall and better is to down-
load a replacement such as Avast to use while waiting to see if the problem is still there.

Any hardware related issues, if it narrows down to those, will need technical support from
a real computer shop or the System maker's Support.
