    BSOD: Driver Power State Failure After Waking


    I've been trying to troubleshoot a BSOD I've been getting after my machine wakes up from sleep. Typically it takes 30-60 seconds after waking up. It's a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE which appears to be common in these situations but unfortunately, I can't seem to find the information I need to identify the driver causing the issue. Hopefully, I've attached what is needed to analyze the crash. Only the most latest few dumps are relevant. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I may have identified the culprit. MSI includes a piece of software with their MB that makes it easier to reboot into the BIOS after Fast Boot is enabled. I uninstalled this software and also disabled Fast Boot in the bios. I haven't had a BSOD since. Hopefully, that was it. It has only been a day since I discovered the issue so I'm not 100% convinced but so far so good.

    Hi FelixLighter & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Kindly check your system for stability further as the BSOD's may lurk deep and surface later.

    MSI Software is known to cause trouble. In case of any further problem, do not hesitate to post back ^_^.

    If the issue has been solved, kindly mark this thread as SOLVED ^_^.

    Thanks. I'll mark it as solved. I'm sure the BSOD troubleshooters have more than their hands full. If the problem resurfaces, I'll post back then.
