BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Hi all,

 

I've been having the BSOD "Driver Power State Failure" error after wakeup from sleep.

 

Already have the latest updates form Windows and Lenovo Vantage.

 

Recently upgraded Windows Home to Windows Pro via the upgrade key option in settings.

 

Maybe someone can look at my minidump files and see what drivers are causing the issue?

 

Any help is appreciated, the machine is not even a week old.

Re: BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Can you zip up a couple of the minidumps and attach them to a reply, or if the are too large even compressed, post them on One Drive or Dropbox etc?

 

There is also this online crash dump analyzer that will allow you to view the the minidumps tht might interest you.

Re: BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Thank you for the quick response, you can find the minidump files from the link below.

 

I didn't even know an online tool existed. I did try this method, however, I have no idea what to look for Smiley Sad

Re: BSOD Driver Power State Failure

I appears to be caused by a Sierra Wireless Incorporated USB NDIS Miniport Driver (the actual driver file is having a problem is  swg3kmbb00.sys)  not wanting to sleep properly, thus you have a BSOD when you resume.   

 

I do not see any drivers for the Sierra Wireless cards on Lenovo's website for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th, so the first thing I would do is check with your wireless provider to see if they know of the problem and/or have an updated driver, but in the interim you could try the following.

 

If it is an external USB Card, unplug it and then test the sleep/resume function to see if that is indeed the problem

 

If it is an internal card, 

  • Right Click on Start and select Device Manager
  • Expand the Network Adapters section with a left-click
  • Right-click on your Sierra Wireless Adapter and select Properties
  • Select the Power Management Tab
  • Uncheck the box "Allow to the computer to turn off this device to save power"
  • Reboot and then test sleep mode again.

 

Best of luck,

I thought that would be the case. I removed the driver and the issue is gone. Thank you.

Re: BSOD Driver Power State Failure

On a Lenovo P51, I have more times had the BSOD DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE. 

The latest dump attached.

 

How can these minidumps be viewed - or can you analyze it?
Is there another way to find out, which driver is failing? Windows logfiles?
