Q: Power Driver State Failure

Turning on the computer or after some time of use sometimes gives the BSOD power_driver_state_failure. after resetting it usually enters the windows. Could anyone help me with this problem?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Power Driver State Failure

Update drivers in red. Run System File Checker. Remove Alcohol 120 and/or Daemon Tools if using them.

Hi,

I've been browsing the site and the internet for a sollution to my problem, but can't seem te find it. There are similar postings, but they're always just a little different. So that's why i posted the new thread.

Since a couple of days i've been experiencing troubles shutting down my PC and using my USB ports. It started when i tried to log onto my work from home. It failed and the IT guy from work told me to reinstall citrix reciever. So I did and I was able to work from home. After finishing and logging out (to get back to my own PC) I found that my USB portst didn't work anymore. I tried rebooting, but af 10 minutes of "shutting down" I got a blue screen: Driver Power State Failure with code 1000009f.

I did the following:
- tried system restore - it failed with different time stamps
- update drivers - they were all up to date the system said
- Malware Bytes, CC Cleaner, MS Essentials, Hitman pro - Did them all, had some minor stuff, fixed that, problem remained.
- SFC/scannow - no problems
- Memory check - no problems

As it is now, the only update I have left is the update to WIN10. However it has tried and failed during a few of the reboots, so that doesn't seem to be and option.

After try all different kinds of things from a lot of posts I decided to refresh my windows install. Did a lot of updating and still the problem remains. Although I now found out that USB devices that are plugged in upon startup work. Once I unplug en replug them, t... Read more

Hey, I got some BSOD problems. Do you got time & experience to help me?

I got Windows 8 at the moment, I will install 8.1 shortly. Had 8.1 before i re-installed OS when the first BSOD showed up, so I doubt that 8.1 will fix things completely.

My problems ATM!

- Driver Power State Failure
- Video TDR Failiure (nvlddmkm.sys)
- Screen freezes at start up or when I get to the desktop
- Have to Disable my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M to use the CPU (Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Got two other kinds of BSOD before I re-installed windows but don't remember what they said, I just felt like "Hey I need to re-install my OS anyways so w/e". But apparently that didn't solve the problems.

I also gained "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 340.52 stopped working While playing CS:GO" but that was before I re-installed windows. And now to use my CPU I need to go into Device Manager and shutdown my NVIDIA card to be able to use the CPU and use the Intel card instead. If I don't shut it down my CPU will freeze the screen for days, til I restart or I get a BSOD.

I will buy a can of air and open up my laptop and blow some dust away, perhaps that could help? Perhaps the NVIDIA card is burned/broken and I have to buy a new PC?

I've tried a few different driver for my NVIDIA card also, nothing works.

I'm no computer expert and thats why I'm here begging for help, so if someone could help me out here I would appreci... Read more

Hello,

I would appreciate any help with the following problem: the pc sometimes seemingly randomly shows BSOD with errors named in the title, I also attach corresponding screenshots. The problem wont happen if the PC power is supplied from the adapter AND there is some content running on the screen (video in VLC f.ex.). Other important symptoms are: Can not turn off the laptop. There will be endless blue screen saying shutting down,while PC already stopped working. I also can not get the PC to sleep. If i I go to sleep mode, display turns black, PC is still working on and on and I can not go back to desktop anymore.

Thank you very much for your help.

So I have an Asus ROG laptop and I've recently started having some issues with it, one of them being this driver state power failure bsod. Its happened 3 times now in the past two weeks.

I haven't exactly nailed down what causes it, but I've done some research and most places suggest updating drivers and BIOS to fix it.

The first issue I'm having with this is that I'm unable to update my BIOS. I've got the file downloaded from the Asus website, I put it on a flash drive and tried to use the EZ Flash 3 utility to update the BIOS but it doesn't see the flash drive. In fact it doesn't see any drive at all except for one 256 MB partition on the main hard drive (laptop has an SSD and 2nd hard drive for storage). I've tried formatting the drive in FAT32 as old documentation suggested it might need that but still no luck. I've tried several flash drives and no luck. I read that USB 3.0 might be the problem, but the laptop only has 3.0 ports. So not sure what I can do about that if that is the actual problem.

Some other additional information, a few days ago I noticed my power brick for charging the laptop got extremely hot as it was under some blankets and such. How long that was going on I don't know. Could the charger be the problem? When it BSOD'd a couple hours ago it was shortly after I unplugged it (30 seconds-ish). But this did crash before I noticed the power brick issue so I don't know if its been a thing for that long or not.

Also I did update my video card... Read more

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite S55-C5363 and I have been semi-frequently getting BSOD due to "Driver Power State Failure." This usually happens when I try to run software that is somewhat graphically intensive, such as solidworks or photoshop. In either case, they run for a period of time (sometimes long, sometimes short), and then I encounter the bluescreen. I believe my computer has a good enough specs to run this software. Either way, I don't think my computer should be crashing.
I have malwarebytes installed and am currently running a scan. I just installed bluescreenview. Let me know if I should download any software and attach any logs. Attached is a log from speccy.
Thank you.
 

A:Driver Power State Failure

The one thing I notice straight away from your specs is that you're running an Nividia 950m graphics card in your laptop, with version 354.35 drivers.
 
The latest drivers for this model of card are at version 375.70 (available here), Seeing as you experience driver failures when performing graphically intense operations, you may well find that a straight update to the latest drivers from Nvidia might well solve your problems.

Hey all,

I just put Windows 8 Professional 32-Bit on my Gateway M100-E laptop. It seems to crash when it is restarted and it's power state has changed. As in from battery to power cord and vice-versa. The BSOD tells me the error is called a driver power state failure. This laptop is 100% stock with the latest Windows 8 updates. The antivirus I'm using is the included Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. Attached are my log files.

Computer was recently updated to Windows 8. When laptop lid is closed and opened, BSOD instead of sleep. I need to know which driver is causing it. "grab all" results attached. Thanks.

A:Driver power state failure

Welcome to Eight Forums,

Looks like a mixture of drivers from Acronis and Total Mounter seems to be the cause of the BSOD.
I would uninstall both these programs and their drivers and see if the sleep mode BSOD is eliminated.
Do you have a SSD and is the firmware for it up to date? Check for one, it may bring stability.

A:Driver Power State Failure

You have a NETGEAR WNDA4100 N900 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. ... Read more

I've recently inherited a laptop from a friend of mine. I did a reformat/reinstall of Windows, and have been getting fairly a persisitent yet seemingly random BSOD. Always accompanied by the same message: driver power state failure. I am assuming that I have installed the wrong driver for one or more components, despite grabbing them all from the manufacturer's website. I am hoping you guys can help me narrow down which one.

My system:

Windows vista x64 SP2 Full retail (I think)
Original OS was the same, although likely OEM
Machine is 4 years old
Reinstalled Windows about 2 weeks ago

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 2.0 Ghz

System Manufacturer: Acer

I think the general set of symptoms apply to my situation. I haven't experienced a shut down while using my laptop, but I've come home on occasion and it was shutdown, though I'm fairly certain I left it on. Additionally, if I close the lid and allow the computer to go into 'sleep' mode, it won't start back up...instead it says that it ran into a problem and will gather some info and restart for me. It also states that I can look up "POWER_STATE_DRIVER_FAILURE" to learn more about the problem...which lead me here.

I think I've followed the instructions properly but if there is information you need from me that isn't provided, please let me know.

Of note about this particular laptop, I believe they were initially being sold with Windows 7, so although this one arrived, brand new (not refurbished), with Windows 8 already installed from the factory, I don't know that it wasn't sitting on a self in the warehouse with the previous version of Windows and then was upgraded before being shipped out. I have no clue if that actually matters at all. Lastly, these laptops were infamous for wireless issues resulting in slow connections, power signals and intermittent signal lose.

Some more specifics...

Power supply is Lenovo, model ADP-65KH B, 20V output.

I also spent a bunch of time updating all the drivers, etc. that I could find...which didn't help. I didn't find any anti-virus software to remove, which I've seen in other threads can be problems.

Also, I forgot to attach the second report in my initial post so I've attached it here.

For some reason whenever i do something that uses my graphics card i get a BSOD. I disabled it to confirm that it was indeed causing me issues.

Ive reflashed the bios, updated the driver, rolled it back and even did a complete reinstall to factory settings.

I upgraded to Windows 10 as well to see if it would fix the issue but it has not done anything.

The graphics card is a GTX 670m.

Edit: Sometimes i will get the BSOD doing normal things such as browsing or even being on the desktop.

Thanks

According to the output of dxdiag, you have a Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000.
You also have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M but it doesn't appear to be the active video card. Update that driver to the latest WHQL version which is 368.39.

Looks like the Intel is onboard and the Nvidia is a PCI-E card.

It seems this is a pretty common occurance lately. 2 Days ago I updated my Vista Home Premium with SP2 and since then it has been crash after crash.. Right now I am lucky if I can go an hour before a crash. It started 5 minutes after installing sp2 with the error message Bugcode_USB_Driver and a bunch of numbers, I got online direct with microsoft and allowed them access to my computer and they deleted all drivers and reinstalled and updated..etc.etc.
After that I was good for about 6 hours then I started crashing with the Driver_Power_State failure. I have not installed any other new hardware or software.
My Specs are: HP Pavillion TX1000US 2GB ram...not sure what else u need.
This is making me crazy....This is the 3rd time I tried to post but my system freezes up.. Everytime it is going to crash my mouse and keyboard lock up, both are wireless devices.
I have tried to zip my 21 minidump files but no matter what I do it is always empty.

Please help... this is the first time I have ever posted anything and I hope I am in the right place...

The last two days my Acer Extensa 5420 Laptop will just go to a blue screen and it will state "Driver_Power_State_Failure" and begin dumping physical memory. Once it's done that, it will restart and it will take over 30 minutes sometimes to get Windows Vista to come back on. The green "loading" bar will come on, and then a black screen with no cursor or anything will stay on for all that time. Sometimes I have to restart it or do a hard shut down and start it for it to EVENTUALLY come back up.
I checked the updates, and everything except a Windows Live Essentials is already updated.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I run an online business, and if I don't have this computer, I have no income.

Thanks!!

My desktop just crashed and all I could get was "Driver_Power_State_Failure" off the BSOD before it went down.

Now when I hit the power button I get NO VIDEO OUTPUT at all, so I can't even turn it on. I was thinking about trying to turn it on w/o a monitor and get in over the network to get the dump files but being as I have no video I can't logon so it won't get to the homegroup for me to do that. Unfortunately this is all the information I have.

A:Driver Power State Failure

Guys I solved the problem, or at least located it and found a temporary fix.

It appears my video card bit the dust and I solved the problem by routing the monitors directly to the motherboard connectors and removing the video card.

3 years running on the card, I think I got my $100 worth.

I've had this issue with windows 7, 8 and now 8.1 and i'm slowly getting tired of it.

Whenever i wake my pc up, it crashes about 10 minutes into use with the error "Driver power state failure" & it writes a minidump (see attachment for sample)

Currently this is a clean install with only custom ATI drivers installed for my graphics card. I did install software already (lightroom/office/..) but generally i'm only running firefox when it happens.

The minidump mentions iscsi, i do use this occasionally (my nas isn't always on so it can't always find the iscsi target on the server)

all help towards a solution is very much appreciated!

Kind regards

Hi All

New to forum and relatively useless with computers beyond using simple programs.

Recently began experiencing extended shutdown and startup times, started with 5-10 minutes and kept getting longer. Was told that after a few years and two kids downloading everything they clicked on it was probably due to alot of extra junk running. So I saved everything I needed and endevoured to reload the OS (Vista Home Premium 32bit), just pop in the disk and follow the instruction they said, "It's easy" they said.

Everything seemed to progress nicely, followed the prompts, windows will restart several times etc etc.

Runs for approx 48 hours on the scrolling bar then get:

Driver Power State Failure
Stop: 0x0000009F (0x00000003, 0x828EE908, 0x828EE908, 0xC4915340)

Attempted restarts to safe mode or to command prompt are unsuccessful as it is disabled during windows reload

I've read through several of the previous DPSF threads and everyone is asked for a "minidump", please don't ask unless you know a psychic that can commune with my laptop as it will not advanced to any state other than BSOD at this point.

I just got a BSoD with the error as DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I have attached the logs.

Also, I was googling for this and one site told to run sigverif.

The output for that is also attached. The second and third one are okay because I allowed them to install. They are a custom trackpad driver for Windows on Mac (Trackpad++ Project [Home Page]). However, the first one, I don't recognize. Is that the problem?

And I think the problem is with USB. I know you said last time it is Kaspersky but I have observed that whenever my USB ports act funny after waking up from sleep, the system won't go to sleep again. What I started doing was whenever I observe my USB port going bonkers, I restart the system. Today, I did the same thing and voila BSoD.

I would like to add one last thing. During our last conversation (if usasma is reading this), you mentioned 2 apple drivers which were older than the one in Bootcamp 5. Those are because Trackpad++ updates these drivers and replaces this. I don't think this is a problem as many of my friends are using it without issues. But, wdfcoinstaller01011.dll is what I am suspecting.

I also did Step 1 of the advanced troubleshooting here and am attaching that file (via SkyDrive as it is too big to attach here). http://sdrv.ms/17CINyA

A:Driver Power State Failure

The wdfcoinstaller is OK, here's a link to a description of it: Redistributable Framework Components (Windows Drivers)

The dump files blame 2 things - so let's start this out slowly.
First, uninstall Kaspersky and see if the system still BSOD's. Give it a day or two.
Then, if it does still BSOD, uninstall the VMWare program and see if it still BSOD's

Leave the system as it is, and upload the memory dumps.
We'll see what they blame and we'll move on from there.

I just tried to restart my laptop and it took like really long to restart .. basically it was stuck at the "Restarting blue'ish screen" and after a while displayed some texts like "collecting info ....... Driver_Power_State_Failure"

After googleing a bit, it seems lots of people suggests its likely being caused by a damaged/outdated driver or something similar but I checked the device manager and I don't have any errors/yellow sigh anywhere and also tried checking updates for Ethernet/wifi adapters etc .. it just says I already have the latest version.

I've installed a few new softwares on pc recently but I'm don't think these can actually cause this issue, itunes latest version and a virtual wifi router: this one: https://virtualrouter.codeplex.com/ (don't know if I should link it here but incase it helps)

Also I don't think I've any virus issues, running comodo + maleware bytes ... so far no detection's.

Hello!

So there's this problem that I'm having with my computer. (laptop)
It seems to take absurdly long to shutdown, and I occaisionally get the BSOD 'Driver_Power_State_Failure'

Also, the CPU usage ranges from 70-99%. This is definitely not normal behavior.

I used to be playing Starcraft II with everything on medium-high, and have no issues whatsoever, now I'm even having trouble with low settings.

My laptop is an Asus k42jv, 4gb of RAM. What information do you guys need?

EDIT: Did I mention that previous BSODs had the computer collect data for crash dump, and recent BSODs have my computer crashing on the BSOD? (i.e. it's not able to collect data during the BSOD)

EDIT2: The latest BSODs : A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. The faulty driver currently on the kernel stack must be replaced
with a working version. This happened during shutdown, and when I rebooted, I was sending Microsoft information about 'this unexpected crash' and all of a sudden I was greeted with another Driver Power State Failure BSOD. My computer is extremely laggy and is constantly running at full speed (I can tell from the fans). Urgent help needed!

A:Driver Power State Failure help

When you get the bluescreen, do you get this information on the blue screen :
"Stop 0x0000009F"
and this: "(00000003, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)" ?

Without dump files your job will be made much harder, because if you can't identify the exact driver that is causing the problem then it probably makes sense to replace/update all of you drivers, one at a time.

See here for instructions:
DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009f - Microsoft Answers

Sometimes when you look at the Properties for your devices in Device Manager you might see a problem device clearly. You also may have clues as to which device from your use of your laptop. And of course, if you've made any system changes or installations around the time the behavior cropped up now would be the time to mention that.

AVG contributes to BSOD's. Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

This software is a known cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence. If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything. 10 Tips on How to Properly Maintain Your Computer
