Please help with BSOD problem

#1
Hello everyone and thank you for looking at my post.

I apologise as I am new to all this stuff and very naive with computers.

I watch a great video on Youtube which showed me where to find a minidump and who may be able to help understand what it all means (You Guys hopefully!:):))

Anyway, my little red Packard Bell dot s netbook has started rebooting every 10 mins of so with a BSOD message telling be about "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE"

My husband has had a look at it and disabled and power schemes that put it in hibernation etc but that hasn't help.

So I am hoping that you guys can please help as I use this laptop for work and it has become unusable.

Thanks in anticipation.

according to the message, 'DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE', it seems that (well, duh) the power of your netbook isn't enough to power the system...
How do you turn off your netbook? (do you hold down the 'power' button, press start and selecting 'shut down', ripping out the battery [hopefully not]) - could this be the cause?Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
What's your power plan? (balanced, power saver, high performance)
(Try going to advanced settings in power plan, and take a screenshot of your: Battery, PCI Express, Display, USB Settings and any Graphics Settings)

Edit: Misclicked (Post Quick-Reply instead of Go Advanced)

Hi.

Sorry about the last uploaded dmp file. Attached is the very latest one that was caused by the machine simply crashing to the BSoD.

Currently I'm on my laptop without the dmp file analyzer, but looking at it from the raw notepad script I saw a few (just to mention 2 - dxgkrnl.sys,Tuneuputilites.exe).
dxgkrnl.sys is something wrong with your graphics card/directx driver
Tuneuputilities.exe is a (in my opinion) total rip off program that 'helps' you tune your computer.

Of course there are many more, but this is what I'll say:
Update your Graphics Driver. (install driver sweeper, sweep the drivers and clean them)
Uninstall Tuneup. (Control Panel, Uninstall programs and features)

Sorry for the limited help, but maybe you could try some of the suggestions in my first post? that's all, sorry :/

In order to perform a full analysis we'll need this info: http://windows7forums.com/blue-screen-death-bsod/38837-how-ask-help-bsod-problem.html

The BSOD's are most likely caused by AICharger.sys - the Asus USB charger program.
Please un-install it to see if it stops the BSOD's

If this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please post back. While waiting for a reply, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Thank you. But I've just got a lot of experience doing this and I specialize in BSOD's. I've been at it since 2006, so I've managed to learn a few things.

Quite a few of the STOP 0x9F DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE errors have the first parameter = 3
If so, the FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: value will be similar to this:
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: 0x9F_3_AiCharger_IMAGE_usbhub.sys
At times there won't be anything between the "3" and the "IMAGE" - so then you're back on your own trying to figure it out without that clue.

If you're interested in BSOD analysis, there's a nice community of consumer/user level BSOD analysts at Sysnative Forums
