Windows 10: driver_power_state_failure Solved

  1.    06 Jan 2016 #1


    Hi, on my Win 10 machine I get a BSOD when I wake the computer up from sleep or hibernate. It is usually almost immediately after the PC wakes, but sometimes a minute later. The error code I receive is: driver_power_state_failure

    Once I reboot, the PC works without issue. It seems to only occur when waking from a sleep state.

    I've ran the driver verifier tool and sfc /scannow, but couldn't seem to find any issues.

    I attached the file created by the dm log collector tool.

    I appreciate you taking a moment to review the report and pointing me in the right direction to resolve this.

    I did a Google search and it looks like that is a crack for Windows Office, which is very strange that it exists there. I don't have Office on this computer as far as I know. At any rate, I deleted the task and the folder it references. There were no files in the folder either, so I'm puzzled.

    At any rate, thanks for pointing that out.

    You're sure about that you don't have Office?
    It is very clear Office is installed.

    Thanks for the info above. I was able to update some of those drivers, but others don't seem to have any more recent updates or can no longer be found. Hopefully one of these cured it. I'll post back. Thanks!

    P.s. Looks like I do have Office on here. I only use Google Drive, so never noticed. I'll remove it and save some hard drive space.

    Crashes with Windows 10 have mostly been caused by outdated drivers.
    If a crash occurs within a few days, consider removing those you couldn't update, if it doesn't help let me know and I'll gladly help.
