Laptop Consistently Crashing (Windows 10, Toshiba)

So, I know virtually nothing about the intricacies of hardware/software, but with a bit of help from someone, I was able to get some logs and info as to why my laptop (a Toshiba Satellite) was getting BSODs about 1-2 times a day.

When the BSOD came up, it was always the same cause: DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE. I tried updating my various network drivers, but the problem persisted. Screenshots to the logs are: and If I need to provide any additional screenshots, let me know, since I know very little about this kind of thing. Thanks in advance!

Its likely to be the graphics or wifi card drivers.

first try going into device manager (right click start) select the network drivers - wificard driver select properties and make sure that the box "allow the computer to switch off is unticked.

If that doesn't solve the problem then try updating the drivers for the wifi card and your graphics card.
