  1. I recently installed Windows 8 and ever since then I haven't been able to restart my laptop without getting a BSOD for DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Using WinDbgx64 I determined the problem was a driver for vwifibus.sys. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver for my WiFi adapter and it stop for a few. Now it is doing it again and I can't restart my laptop to update it or anything because of the BSOD. Any help is appreciated. Most recent BSOD Minidump posted.

    The minidump is the same DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?

    Nope. I've made sure the driver is installed. I had the problem once before, reinstalled the drivers, was fine for a few days, and started up again.
