Windows 8 Clean Install, Driver Power State Failure Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I did a clean install of Windows 8 on a new Crucial v4 ssd and after Windows was installed things were acting a bit sluggish. When I shut down and restarted the first time running Windows  it took almost 2 hours to get past that black load screen with the windows tiles and then gave me the "Driver Power State Failure" Error screen.

    I have enough RAM and all of the other system requirements, I'm not sure why this is happening. I have tried reinstalling windows twice and nothing has helped.I have an HP p6310y, I just ran all of the updates, including a BIOS update and that did not help either.

    I still have the windows 7 OS installed on my original internal HD, and then only way my computer will boot is into Windows 7.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    M.

  • Make sure your firmware is the latest on the SSD.  I've seen it a ton of times where a brand new SSD will be slow as molasses or cause lots of random errors on Windows and once the firmware is flashed it moves at the speeds its advertised.

    your Hitachi HTS54323 causes it. Disable powersaving of the HDD in Power settings options (control panel). Also update the Intel AHCI driver:

    After joining the forum 4 years ago, I'll leave it soon. The abusive behavior of moderator and CGS users to repost already posted answers or only posting generic and useless replies like "Do a clean boot" to nearly all question and marking their own replies as answer reduces the quality of the forum dramatically. I'm tired of such trolls and no longer wasting my spare free time. If you're an user who whats high quality answers and help by analyzing your crash dumps, xperf/xbootmgr trace or CBS logs ask on msfn.org, I'll take a look at them. After December 1st 2013 I'll only post to topics where I already replies to. So hurry up and ask your question.
