BSOD Driver_Power_State_Failure

By KillerGorillaV

  1. I gets the error while shutting down my computer (running Vista SP2). When I restart and log back into my account all my settings are replaced by the original settings (like my wallpaper and additional desktop items). The aero sidebar was back (I disabled it).

    After some browsing I found even though I logged into as User MYNAME, the account I'm in is C:/User/TEMP, and not C:/User/MYNAME.

    Please help. thanks

    A driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. Typically occurs during events that involve power state transitions, such as shutting down, or moving into or out of standby or hibernate mode.

    We need your minidump files.

    How to find and post your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don’t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually.
