  1. Hello,

    I have had this computer for a little over a year now and this issue has been recurring since I got it. It was a minor annoyance and I kept forgetting to take it in. I would love to get some help. It may be my graphics card but I am not entirely sure. As far as troubleshooting I have made sure the graphics card is fully pushed into the pci slot and checked the wires.

    Thanks

    P.S. I would love to attach the minidump but the website says that the file type is not allowed. I suppose this is a situation where I need help to get help.

    You should easily post minidumps by going to C:\windows\minidump. Minidump files have a .dmp extension. Select all the .dmp files and right-click, sending them to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload that folder as a file here

    Driver power state failure error is actually Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error. I have found a video tutorial that will resolve your problem You are only required to follow the steps mentioned in the video tutorial.




    Wish you best of luck!
