Re: NVME driver causes "internal power error" on resume in win10 1809

Hi,

I have the same problem with windows 1809 on a Lenovo X1 Extreme + 2 samsung nvme 2tb drives.

Installing the latest samsung drivers resulted on a blue screen on resume: INTERNAL POWER ERROR ....

Uninstalling the samsung drivers and reverting to the microsoft resolved the problem.

Please Samsung fix your drivers!

Since a few years this is one of my No. 1 rules for a stable system:

 

Never ever use third-party storage drivers if you can avoid it (that means basically in every case but RAID configuration).

It is just always causing problems. Almost all out-of-sudden BSODs which I had so far and which are not connected to a hardware problem were caused by storage drivers like Intels IASTOR. Each major OS update is a roulette game.

 

Save yourself from all these headaches and just stick to Microsofts SATA and NVMe drivers. The performance loss is something you can see in the benchmarks. For practical use it is either negligible or just doesn't justify the amount of problems / instabilities they might cause.

Same issue started after 1809 running on 970 Pro 512GB and 970 EVO 1TB using NVME 3.0 driver.

 

Samsung - Why are you silent on this?  Fix your driver!

Same problem with the 3.0.0.1802 Samsung driver. Reverting to "Standard NVM Express Driver" cleared the problem. In my case the crash was assoiated with sleep, waking up I believe. Reverting the drive is pretty simple, just do a "have disk" and point to the stadard driver which I found in 

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\stornvme.inf_amd64_4e56d37488727768 stornvme.sys

 

Note that the microsoft standard driver reports a date of 2006-06-21 but it is actually 2018-09-15 however the version 10.0.17763.168 is correct.

Hello All,

 

For the users that are having issues with the Samsung NVMe driver,

 

Samsung is preparing to fix the NVMe driver related issue and the releasing schedule of revised NVMe driver will be updated around the end of January, 2019.

Do you guys also have nvidia video card installed?

 

In my experiments, physically removing video card (2080Ti) or deleting video card in device manager fixes the issue. Obviously uninstalling NVMe driver is a more practical work around.

Just saying, maybe there is a conflict between nvidia's driver and samsusng's?

I get this stop error on my X1 Carbon Gen 5 with 970 Pro intermitently, obviously wih integrated graphics. Generally when on battery but occasionally on mains power.

I have the problem on my Lenovo P52.

After uninstalling Samsungs NVMe driver the problem is gone, thanks for providing this info.

Because I'm happy with the 970 Evo also with the Microsoft NVMe driver, I'll use that in the future, even if Samsung provides a fix.

I've been looking hi & lo for a solution to BSOD during wake-up from hib/sleep.  So glad I found this thread. Uninstalling the Samsung driver and reverting to Microsoft drivers fixed the issue. Gigabyte Aero 15x v8 Windows 1809 with Samsung 970 Pro & 970 Evo.
