Drive Power State Failure - BSOD

I recently installed some Windows updates on my new computer, and after the first boot with the updates my computer froze and I got a BSOD saying "Drive Power State Failure"

Here is the attached .dmp file

Thank you

I would suggest you to turn on USB selective suspense, to see if it is caused by the driver or the hardware itself.
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

► If there any devices attached in the USB ports (other than keyboard and mouse), remove those and see if the situation changes.

► And, while getting windows updates, get all the updates. Your Default Hub Driver for USB is very old, compared to the other few drivers. So the chance of incompatibility is there.

BSOD for power drive state failure
My laptop is fairly new and should not be giving me the issues that it does. It suddenly started blue screening for no reason. I don't have to be doing anything, it will just crash for no reason. I have done a full system wipe and it still crashes. I need help.
