Blue screen error (driver state power failure) while loading pokemon omega ruby

Issue:
While loading omega ruby my screen frozes and after sometime window’s blue screen error (DRIVER STATE POWER FAILURE) appears and after that I have to restart my pc. It is occuring repeatedly. I tried to troubleshoot the blue screen error using windows’ community support suggested methods but the issue is not solved.

This error is only occuring in citra and that too specifically while loading pokemon omega ruby since I also tried to load pokemon x but it loaded normally and didn’t threw this error.

Earlier I was able to load omega ruby too but now it is constantly giving me this blue screen error. Please anyone help me.

@CitraBot I tried this but nothing happened. I am still facing this issue.

Let’s make sure you have the correct drivers installed:

Download win64_15.40.45.5126.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29474/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-15-40-?product=87257
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29474/a08/win64_15.40.45.5126.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

@tywald I tried this solution but I have started facing problem again. It was solved earlier but when i tried the solution you gave it worked for the first time but next time when i opened the omega ruby game it started giving me this problem again.
Also when this problem was solved for sometime during that time the game was running but no sound was playing.

This is log of when i last tried to play the game:-

Can you tell me what is the problem now and help me to get around with it?

Thank you in advance.

Can you show me what drivers are installed right now? Open dxdiag (just do a Windows search) and screenshot the Display tab.

@tywald By using the solution that citra bot had suggested and the solution u gave earlier the issue is solved for now but I don’t want to take risk as it occurs unexpectedly. Here is the screenshot of the window you asked for.

If anything is still wrong please let me know.

Thanks for your help, support and time. :grinning: :grinning:

Hm, so it still happens with the latest driver? Strange.

You might have to use Nightly 1392 since these older GPUs have bugs that can cause crashes: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-nightly/releases/tag/nightly-1392
