Driver power State Failure

hello everyone, my computer has been crashing every couple of days and i was wondering if anyone could help me out. I recently got a new computer and it has windows 7 home premium, intel i5 2500k processor, Amd 6670 graphics card and 8gbs of ram. when it crashes it says driver power state failure, i checked the event viewer and it says a Kernel power critical error occurred, not sure how to resolve the problem. Thanks everyone

How are you turning off the machine? Clicking the Orb and selecting Shut Down or pressing the power button?

See this Knowledge-Base article for possible causes: Windows Kernel event ID 41 error in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2: “The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first”

Hello Angel, welcome to SF!

Your last dump was indeed a driver power state failure. See below for future reference.

The driver that caused it is a graphics driver. So the first thing to look at is the advanced powersettings for your graphic card.

Second, please show us what your current powerplan settings are?

Thirdly, it would help to post the full info as instructed here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Can you go into the advanced settings of the powerplan and look at the energy settings for your graphical card?

Please test by setting the display to a much longer period ( an hour ) and set the sleep setting to much less than that i.e. 30 mins. Please post back results.
