Windows 7: Driver Power State Failure BSOD

18 Oct 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Driver Power State Failure BSOD

I've been getting a blue screen for the past week now every time my computer goes to sleep with the Driver Power State Failure message. I've done a lot of research and can see that this is likely due to a faulty driver that isn't updated, and since Windows Update has recently been doing a lot of updating I suspect this is the case. I just need to know which driver is causing the problem. More info:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 9f
BCP1: 0000000000000003
BCP2: FFFFFA8006B26060
BCP3: FFFFF80000B9C518
BCP4: FFFFFA80099CC970
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

Change it to low power saving, at least as a test. Then follow the suggestions by koolkat77.
