Windows 10 64 bit

Disabling hard disk hibernation solved the problem for me.

Just go to Power options -> Advanced Settings -> Hard Disk -> Turn off hard disk after -> Never

Hope it helps

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Fixed same error on 8.1 Pro (HP Envy 17ts). Services showed Manual. Changed to Automatic. I know this is Seven Forums, but it was the first item in Google search results; and the only simple fix. Many thanks!

Windows 7 Professional x64

Changing the Windows Driver Foundation service to Automatic resolved the Event Viewer warning for me as well.
