Windows 7: Windows 10 BSOD: Driver power state failure,

Windows 10 BSOD: Driver power state failure,

Here is the BlueScreenViewer file:

View image: Screenshot 2016 03 20 04 59 26

My computer crashed while Win10 was automatically updating. Some strange behavior I noticed was that my sound card (UX2) stopped working when I plug it in (they have shitty drivers, they do this with all computers from time to time). When I restarted my PC, it automatically started updating Windows 10 (hate the updates). Then BSOD, power state failure. I cannot tell anything from the image, how can I tell if it was really my soundcard driver which was causing the issue?

much thanks!! it's a new PC, a few months old. built it myself, it looks beautiful :)

Hello jhongotto and welcome to 7forums! :)

However I will not start with troubleshooting here since you aren't using W7 and W10 will differ so much.

So please head on over to our sister forum and make a thread in their BSOD subforum:
Windows 10 Forums

I can help you over there.

Cheers, Boris :)
