8.1 DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

8 posts in this topic

Windows 8 Pro 64-bit with Media Center. When I install the 8.1 upgrade it gets stuck at 84% then 85% and goes to a black screen and then BSOD's to DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE....

Side note: The family PC that DOESN'T have media center installed 8.1 fine.

I doubt Media Center has anything to do with it. The error you posted specifically refers to a driver. The specific driver should be mentioned in the error screen, or may be in Event Viewer after the 8.1 Update rolls back.

Do you see a DMP file after the rollback?

No it failed to create one. It was caused by steel series software. Just solved it.

Care to elaborate, please!

"Just solved it" posts are so very frustrating...

He said "It was caused by steel series software." Maybe he solved the problem by removing this software.

There is an issue with the update that nukes power profiles, I mentioned it here. It could easily be related to the OP failure.
