Windows 8.1 - Driver_Power_State_Failure

Gromatda asked on

I have a brand new HP Envy 17 laptop.  Every time I try a Restart and sometimes on a Shutdown it gives a Driver_Power_State_Failure error.  Please

help as this laptop is only a week old.  Problem seemed to start after update from Windows 8 (came on PC) to 8.1.

Rather than deleting it, let's rename it. Before doing so, let's create a restore point just in case - http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4690-restore-point-create-windows-8-a.html

After doing so, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers and rename npf.sys to npf.old and then restart.

Darrell, we have a driver dated from 2010 that may be causing conflicts:

npf.sys - Fri Jun 25 12:50:58 2010

^^ NetGroup Packet Filter Driver, part of the WinPcap packet capture library

Please remove WinPcap ASAP for troubleshooting purposes.
