    Repeated DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSODs


    First time posting on this forum, so please bear with me.

    I've had 4 BSODs since 06/06/15 including 3 in the last 3 days due to DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I don't see any particular pattern between when these occur except for that the last 2 times it happened about 5-10 minutes after my laptop is brought out of hibernation/ booted up from off; but it doesn't happen every time. Also, its happened at least twice when watching Sky Go through a HDMI cable connected to my TV.

    My system's information collected using the DM Log collector Tool is attached to this post.

    Any help would be much appreciated, and if any more details are required please let me know.

    Hi ng2 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Unfortunately, the ZIP file attached by you is empty and hence does not contain any minidump files for us to analyze . Could you please re-run the utility and upload the ZIP file again (Please make sure that it is not empty).

    Apologies Pranav.

    At 2.53MB this upload attempt looks looking a bit more hopeful.

    Hi ng2,

    I just went through the files and I'm wondering why your hosts file is empty.

    Further please update or remove following drivers as they are flagged
    Code:
    Nvidia Video Driver
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys 
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
    Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
    
    Comodo Safe Backup Driver
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for CBUFS.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for CBUFS.sys 
    https://support.comodo.com/
    When you've updated the Nvidia drivers I recommend to read this thread, because it could solve other possible coming BSOD's.


    Recommended to update following drivers
    Code:
    Western Digital SCSI Arcitecture Model (SAM) WDM driver
    wdcsam64.sys Wed Apr 16 10:39:08 2008 (4805BB2C) 
    WD Support / Downloads or WD SES driver download and instructions for recovering the WD SmartWare installer
