    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE - Help very much appreciated!

    Hi guys,

    I recently updated my Sony Vaio VGN-Z690 to Windows 8 Pro x64. I've been getting some DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSODs and I'm not quite sure how to complete the diagnosis. I believe that I've managed to extract the minidump, but I'm relatively new to to this so I may very well have made a mistake. I've attached the text that I have.

    Please let me know if any additional information could be helpful; thanks in advance!

    What is your driver version and date for intel HD Graphics?

    See my thread

    BSOD on IGDKMD64 intel HD


    from 2 days ago.

    I currently switched to the desktop driver (10/17/2012) driver version from
    for my system, a laptop.

    I'm a bit confused: Is your processor a core 2 duo or a sandy bridge like mine?

    It looks like the driver is pretty old - I'm trying to download an updated driver direct from Intel. In your case did updating the driver stop the crash?

    Yeah, your driver is really old, try this one:
    Intel® HD Graphics Driver for Windows 7* 64, Windows Vista* 64 (exe)

    Installs graphics driver version ( for Intel® integrated graphics.
