Windows 7: Blue Screen: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x9F

12 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have tried everything I can do to get this error to resolve and even swapped out my graphics card and I still can not get the random crashes to stop. Even going back to stock drivers have been unsuccessful and I am frustrated that nothing is working and random restarts.
