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

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Yes, this is a Samsung issue.  Microsoft NVME default driver works fine with M.2 960 while Samsung 2.2 driver does not.  I havne't tried the latest Samsung driver, but it sounds like it produces the same behavior:  BSOD upon resuming from sleep.  I uninstalled the driver via Magician and everything is now great.  Unfortunately, in the process I had to reinstall video driver and printer driver, and bought a new USB hub in hopes of ferreting out the issue.

Since it appears that Samsung/Microsoft are not coming up with a fix any time soon.  I have a couple of Samsung M.2 960's installed on ASRock Z97 Extreme6 MB's using the Samsung 2.1 driver.  No issues that I am aware of with W10 1809.  Will the Samsung NVMe driver 2.1 work with the 970?  Is it any better that the default Microsoft driver?

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.

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.
