  1. Hi, I've been having this problem ince a week ago:
    My wifi internet signal stops recieving info.
    When I try to restart the computer the BSOD apperars with the message "Driver Power State Failure"
    The event log shows me errors with Kernel Power, volsnap, dhcp client, and others. Thanks.

    The hard drive may have died... or a memory stick has failed

    The lap top is working really good. It's almost new.

    If the laptop is working really good, why are you here?

    Are there any yellow (!) exclamation points in the device manager? The bsod's are probably caused by a bad or incorrect driver

    Yes! Theres one unknow device that appeared after a restore.

    It's in other devices. what really worries me is that the wifi goes away. Just like that I have no longer access. And task manager shows that it's not receiving any data. So I have to shut it and then restart from the start screen, to make it run again.

    Did this computer come with Windows 8 pre-installed, or was it installed over another version of Windows?
