If you’re using Windows 10 and you get a driver power state failure error, then you came to the right place. It’s something that you can solve in no time.
We have all seen at least once or heard of BSoD – the Blue Screen of Death. Most of you don’t know what to do when this happens.
Let’s see what BSoD is
It’s the same old blue screen. This error usually takes place when the computer or a driver gets into sleep mode, while the user is still using the computer. When this happens, the system often sends a wake-up call to the system. If the computer fails to respond, the operating system flags it as driver power state failure.
How to fix it?
First of all, you need to reinstall the drivers.
You need to boot Windows 10 in Safe Mode. Then, uninstall the faulty drivers. Go to Device Manager, then press Win logo key + R. Enter devmgmt.msc and press Ok. This will open Device Manager. Search for the devices that have a corrupt driver. Look for the device with a yellow mark. After you find it, click right on it, then select Uninstall. Repeat this for every corrupted driver. Then, you need to Reboot your system.
Now you need to reinstall the drivers. Go back to Device Manager, and click right on the device that has a yellow mark — select Update Driver Software.
Select the Search automatically for updated driver software option. After install, all the drivers, reboot the system again.
After this, you should not see the Driver Power State Failure anymore on your Windows 10 system.
