Question Black Screen Error Restart ntoskrnl.exe DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE

Apr 24, 2020
Hello all!

I've been having computer troubles the past week with my computer randomly rebooting. Originally, this problem occurred with a video TDR failure and atikmpag.sys was causing the problem. After many driver resets and clean installations of windows, I'm still getting the same error.

Recently, I rolled back my AMD drivers from Adrenaline to Crimson. I got a different error and the driver power state failure is what's coming up and whocrashed says it's ntoskrnl.exe causing the problem.

I've done some troubleshooting including:
Checking Power Cables
Mem test
SFC Tool
Rolled Back Drivers
Reset BIOS
Reinstalled Windows

I feel like I'm running out of things to try and was wondering if anyone had any solutions?

I'll post my dump files below
