    Driver power state failure - Windows 8 64-bit BSOD


    Hello,

    when I start up my PC I always get a driver power state failure I've been ignoring it for a few days but I want to get rid of it now.

    I have attached my files from SF diagnostic tool.

    Thanks a lot

    Follow these steps
    - Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death
    -Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
    -Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
    -If this didn't help you then I have found video tutorial that has further information to resolve the problem completely. I just want to share the video with you

    Does your system use a Realtek audio driver? , one possible error I have seen with this is Windows HD sound driver clashing with a corrupted audio driver , if you do have Realtek , then try re-installing that driver and see if it fixes the problem.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    You have a NETGEAR WNA3100 N300 Wireless USB Adapter:
    I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
    These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
    Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
    An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.
    Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

    Please run these free hardware diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
    Start with the hard drive test as that's what it's looking like from the memory dumps (from this line - "FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: 0x9F_3_disk_IMAGE_amd_sata.sys").

    Analysis:
    The following is for informational purposes only.

    I've been using USB network device/dongles ( both branded and generic versions ) on many many Win 7 and Win 8 PCs with no issues at all for months (Years with Win 7).

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Just FYI - BSOD's aren't really all that frequent. Many people will be able to use the wireless USB network adapter without problems.
    But, in the small world of BSOD analysis, these devices/drivers are a large problem.
    Finally, I've seen less problems with these devices in Win8 than in Win7 - but the problems still do exist on some systems.
