Drive Power State Failure BSOD

This morning didn't start well for me. It had the following events.

1) Volume wouldn't work.
2) Volume Mixer freezes/not responding when trying to move the volume slider
3) Device Manager Froze when messing with the audio section
4) Windows said there were updates and it needed to be restarted, when updates supposedly finished the computer "Restarted" and it say on the restarting screen for about 5 minutes then it BSoD's

The following is the files that you guys require. Also I have no AV just Defender and Windows Firewall. In the past in Windows 7 "AMD High Definition Audio" froze my volume control so I had to disable that, in this case it did NOT help.

NOTE: I do not have an SSD nor do I put it into sleep. I am also dual booting windows 7 and 8. Although in the past it BSoD'd when it was only windows 8.

Also last night I installed "BlackX" software, it's a hotswap dock with a USB cable that you can just plop a HDD in and press the power button and view the files on the drive.

I also looked up the BIOS for my motherboard, and this was on the download page:

It says windows 8 ready, but I don't know if it was already Windows 8 ready or that's the NEW drivers. I don't know how to check the date of my BIOS nor does it specify a date for the supposed new BIOS on their site.



I am also on Windows 8.1, I have connections. [DEL]I also have no sound, not sure why.[/DEL]

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

Only 4 Windows Updates - this may be OK for Win8.1, but please check for new updates anyway.

This device is disabled. It this deliberate? If so, why?
High Definition Audio Device HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0892&SUBSYS_15658224&REV_1003\4&471C7A7&0&0301 This device is disabled.
Please enable the device and update it's drivers. Feel free to disable it again after doing this.

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from http://ati.amd.com (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.
Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

Please uninstall the Western Digital software. It's older driver is known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems.

If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

The Western Digital software is for "My Passport" also known as an external hard drive. I have since re-enabled the audio driver. I don't think I have gotten a BSOD since then. You also say update my PC, well there isn't anything available for updates. I am on 8.1 which has most of the Windows 8 updates already installed.
