    Hi Gurus!!

    i have an brand new machine. i installed my old win XP and then did a clean install upgrade to win 8.
    it seems that when the computer tries to go to sleep (or change energy consumption), i get a BSOD and restart with message DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
    i cannot understand the DMP file, even though i really tried.

    can someone help me out? what driver is bad?

    attached is a DMP file. i am not sure i will be able to run SF tool on my home computer. will try later.
    thanks a bunch,

    SF files

    hi all,
    my computer allowed me to install and analyze with the SF tool :-)
    attached is the zip.
    I had another kind of BSOD - pool_header something...
    I would really appreciate any help.

    thanks again

    Your BSODs are caused by a driver. Either update driver or remove the corresponding software.
