    Driver Power State Failure


    Hey all,

    I just put Windows 8 Professional 32-Bit on my Gateway M100-E laptop. It seems to crash when it is restarted and it's power state has changed. As in from battery to power cord and vice-versa. The BSOD tells me the error is called a driver power state failure. This laptop is 100% stock with the latest Windows 8 updates. The antivirus I'm using is the included Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. Attached are my log files.

    I like to think of myself as computer literate but it looks like I'm out of my zone here. Searching Intel's website I found this: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...09%09%09%09%09

    And on Gatway's site I found: Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents Should I get the SATA AHCI Driver?

    I'm really not sure what to do here.

    I ran the setup and it said this OS is not supported. As it is a Vista driver.
