Re: Driver State Power Failure Windows 7

Are you running a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate downloaded from the Internet, because that system would not normally have come with Windows 7 Ultimate installed from Lenovo.    I ask, because I have run in to many people who have unintentionally downloaded a (hacked) version who have run into all sorts of driver issues, which is normally what causes the BSOD you are seeing when the system is resuming from sleep/hibernation.     


If you are confident you version of Windows is valid, then try resetting you power settings in the control panel, and perhaps run a System File Check to ensure that all the Windows System Files are correct.


Best of luck,
