    Cannot restart without BSOD, driver power state failure


    My computer (Lenovo Thinkpad Helix 3679CTO) is a month old and a bunch of the drivers have gone out of whack. I believe this is my fault due to force shutting down while the computer was updating. I am trying to reset the computer to factory settings but my computer is incapable of restarting. This means that it is also incapable of restoring factory settings. Eventually after the screen says "Restarting..." for a few minutes the BSOD appears and it states the problem is a "Driver Power State Failure".


    Also I have tried attaching a minidump file to this post but I dont have the correct permissions. I have tried changing the permissions but it is in no way intuitive to someone who is not fairly familiar with computers. It is actually pretty frustrating because all I want to do is upload a small file but my computer has locked me out of being able to do so

Hi I just recently got a BSOD on my laptop DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I'm also guessing this is the reason that my computer seems to not sleep consistently. Thanks
