HOW To Fix Windows 10 Driver Power Failure
Driver Power State Failure errors are usually caused by a computer or device driver going into sleep mode while you’re still using the device. Windows would send a wake signal to the device once it is needed and if the device doesn’t respond in time or at all, Windows flags a Driver Power State Failure error. The error can be caused either by the driver itself or power settings.
Fix Windows 10 Driver Power State Failure error
Two popular causes of this error were graphics drivers and Wi-Fi card drivers. It makes sense to update both while you’re here.
1. Navigate to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound and Device Manager.
2. Select your Network adapter and/or Display adapter.
3. Right click, select ‘Update Driver Software and Search automatically…’.
4. Reboot your computer and retest.
If a new driver doesn’t work, turn off power saving.
1. Navigate to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound and Power Options.
2. Select ‘Change power settings’ next to the active power plan.
3. Select ‘Change advanced power settings’ text link.
4. Select ‘Change settings that are currently unavailable’.
5. Find Graphics Settings or PCI Express and Link State Power Management and set to Maximum performance, depending on what computer you have.
6. Find Wireless Adapter Settings and set to Maximum performance.
7. Reboot your computer and retest.
