Windows 10: BSOD Driver Power State Failure Solved

    BSOD Driver Power State Failure

    Hi, First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my thread, over the years I have found these type of forums to be very useful and appreciate the generosity of time and experience shown members.:)

    I recently upgraded my PC with a new solid state drive and to windows 10. I am now experiencing some BSOD (Driver_Power_State_Failure) crashes. I cant say with any certainty but these appear to only be happening once the computer has been in sleep mode for a while. I have attached Zip file as per instructions and would be appreciative of any help which could help me identify the problematic driver.

    Hi lazzas67,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    Do you have this crash when you use the hard drive that you use(d) before upgrading your pc with the SSD?
    If so, you'll probably have to disable sleep, because it is most likely a bug in windows 10:

    • Right click battery icon in the lower right corner.
    • Select power options.
    • Left click on "Choose What The Power Button Does"
    • left click "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
    • Scroll to the bottom and under "Shutdown Settings"
    • UNCHECK the "Sleep" box
    • click the "Save changes" button

    You could also try to clean install windows 10, because a clean install after an upgrade could solve problems How to clean install windows 10

    Hi, thanks for your assistance, I had immediately upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 after installing SSD so have not run windows 10 OS from new SSD. I will disable sleep mode on SSD and let you know if this solves the problem.

    Hi, This issue has persisted, most recently immediately on while waking computer from sleep mode. Generally these BSOD restarts had occurred up to several minutes after waking PC from sleep. any help would be appreciated as i am struggling to identify the issue. Analyzing the Dump file is a little beyond me.
