What is driver power state failure windows 8

Hi I bought my son a new windows 8 Samsung laptop for christmas and it cannot find our home wireless network or any other network and sometimes doesnt even recognise a wired connection. The error popping up is driver power state failure. Is this a hardware or software problem ? or should i just take it back to pc world ? I have done a system restore and have been on Samsung sw updates to update the drivers. This worked for a day and now am still having the same problem. Please help Regards Dave.

  1. Thas says to me that the driver is having a hard time recognising the power state, or has a problem detecting that the state has changed from a sleep or hibernate state.

    you can download the latest drivers for the laptop here http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads
