Driver Power State Failure - New MSI Laptop

Q: Driver Power State Failure - New MSI Laptop

So about a month and a half ago I bought myself a new MSI Laptop, and in the past 3 weeks I've had 5 Driver Power State Failure (DPSF) BSOD's. I've searched around but I'm not confident enough when it comes to BSOD's to actually do anything without first getting some advice for my particular problem.All I have really been able to tell from this is that the error always occurs at the same location, ntoskrnl.exe (+7cc40), which, being a critical part of the OS, I assume is a very bad thing. Anyways, here are the minidump files:==================================================

Preferred Solution: Driver Power State Failure - New MSI Laptop

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: Driver Power State Failure - New MSI Laptop

I would try...downloading (from MSI website)...chipset and wireless drivers for your system...then removing the current drivers via Device Manager, followed by installation of the new ones.

Or...if you have drivers CD with your system, you can use that, rather than downloading drivers from MSI website.

From day one when I opened up this laptop it was crashing. I've had the RAM replaced, the SSD (twice), factory reset, MOBO replaced, and still the same intermittent crashing. The company I bought this from "tried" to fix it but couldn't ever get anywhere. This has been a 2 year P.I.T.A. for me and I'm finally coming to you guys because the company I bought this from has informed me that my warranty is up and I will have to start paying for their "help". I thought that was comical. Nonetheless. Here I am. I need help. Not sure where to start because I've never been able to pinpoint the cause. Most of the time the BSOD reads "Driver State Power Failure". I've personally updated all of my drivers, chipset, BIOS, graphics card, etc. The vendor has also done the same. To no avail.

Let me know what I can do to help someone diagnose this for me.

A:New Laptop - BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

It sounds like you have an ASUS ROG G551JW laptop which originally came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
You say you bought it new and had problems with it the very first day of use, so I'm surprised you didn't return it for another one instead of having hardware replaced in it for the past 2 years.

There are several links here that you can read about "driver power state failure" in Windows 10.

This error has been happening for 80% of the time when my laptop is shutting down or restarting. It started few days ago when I removed everything and reinstalled windows. I then refreshed my laptop couple of times but the problem is still persisted. I updated windows and all devices are up to date. Restarts are also slow when it does restart properly.

When I tried updating to windows 8.1, it would stop at "setting up 82%" and had to hold the power button to turn off the laptop couple times.

Dear forummers,

Recently, I've been heving some BSOD'S wen putting my GE70-i550M287FD to sleep mode or hibernation. The NB just stays just active with a black screen for a while, only to end up in a BSOD eventually.
It gives me always the same BSOD, so I figured it would be caused by a single error. However, I haven't been able to detect and fix it up until now. I hoped that some of you might have dealt with it before or know how to deal with it.

The only hardware I've got plugged is the mouse. I have't been able to test if I got the same error without the mouse plugged. Also, this BSOD ONLY occures when going into hibernation/sleep mode.

This is a photo from the BSOD I keep getting once a week/2 weeks or so.

IMG_20140212_213442_zpse94cdbb9.jpg Photo by esmorax | Photobucket

I have read something about minidump files. How do I open them and do they contain any necessary information needed to fix this error?

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

I'm getting frequent random BSOD Power_Driver_State_Failure on my ASUS G551JM Laptop (https://asus.com/support/Download/3/...RbVetG02i5/41/) It happens while plugged in and running off battery but more frequently on battery power. It usually happens within 30 minutes of powering on the laptop or waking it up from sleep/hibernate. It primarily happens after logging into windows but on rare occasion will blue screen prior.

I've updated drivers from Asus and chipset manufacturers websites: intel rapid storage driver, Intel MEI driver, Intel INF driver, Intel wifi and bluetooth drivers, clean installed nvidia gtx 860m drivers. I tried to update intel HD graphics drivers but got this error message:
Computer Manufacturer Graphics Driver Detected. Your computer manufacturer customizes the drivers that run Intel components on your machine. You might lose functions and cause other technical issues by installing the Intel drivers.
Windows updates are up-to-date and no virus or malware.

I recently have been getting blue shutdown screens on my laptop. I will give you plenty of information about my computer. I put all the information about the Blue screen dump files and my System Information file in an attachment. I hope this helps. I recently found out you could save the System Information file as a text and also as an .exe. This should help diagnose the problem! This is how it happens, I will be using my computer and then the computer will become very slow and unresponsive. It is not completely unresponsive but it will be so slow that I cannot use it, then after about 3 minutes of this slow unresponsiveness the blue screen will show up and say driver power state failure and shutdown. I recently formatted the computer because it had been doing this before so I restored it back to factory defaults about one month ago.

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.

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.

Sounds like a hard drive issue - I would get into the system software (bios) and run a hard drive diagnostic. Othewise, you can run a chkdsk on the hard drive volumes.

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.

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
Video Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT
MotherBoard: Acer Columbia, Chipset: PM965, Southbridge: 82801HBM (ICH8-ME)
Power Supply: ???

System Manufacturer: Acer
Exact model number: Extensa 5620 6396

Thanks for taking a look. I hope I gave you all the necessary info.

I keep getting a BSOD upon getting back onto my computer after it hasn't been used for a while (I just leave it on all the time). I checked around on the Microsoft home site and I'm reading that it might be an issue with using IEEE devices and that I should download a new service pack or something. I was looking around elsewhere and other people are saying that it might be an issue with the hd, and that I need to backup all my files and recover it before it fails.

Do you guys have any suggestions on how to deal with this issue?

How are you turning off the machine? Clicking the Orb and selecting Shut Down or pressing the power button?

See this Knowledge-Base article for possible causes: Windows Kernel event ID 41 error in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2: “The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first”

A couple of days ago I did a Windows 10 64-bit "clean install" on my Dell Inspiron 1564 Laptop, and it has been running well, basically. However, I did experience a Driver Power State Failure on startup today. It immediately reached 100% complete in collecting error info, but did not restart after (as it said it would). I waited for approximately 10 minutes more and then manually rebooted. It came up fine.

Going forward, I am not sure what I should be doing to correct the situation. If someone has recommendations, I would be appreciative.

By "clean install", I mean I upgraded from 7 to 10 - then I did a computer recovery - reset this pc, at which time I told it to remove all my personal files and applications. I think I have 4 GB of ram, but quite frankly, the system information screen has changed; and even digging into the Device Manager information leaves me no less confused about what is installed. So I hope this is enough of the basics for someone to give me a basic next step.

Thank you,

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.

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.

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.

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.

A:Driver Power State Failure

Have the same laptop and same problem. As far as I can tell it is due to a bad SD card reader driver. I downloaded the "Debugging Tools for Windows x64" from here and used it to load the memory dump file located in "C:\WINDOWS\Minidump". You can follow the description here on how to do this. The debugger identified the file "o2sdx64.sys" as the culprit so I went over to toshiba here and downloaded the latest SD reader driver. The old version of this file was identified by the device manager as 2.0.2.909 and after updating was 2.0.2.915.

I have not tested this for long but so far no BSOD. I did notice this error seemed to occur often when I was swapping files off the SD card I am hopful.

Hope this helps.

By the way I am running Vista x64

Hi
I've been getting this BS error for quite a while now and it is becoming more frequent so I've decided to take action. I have no idea what?s causing it but it happens when I try to put my laptop into hibernate - sometimes it happens when the laptop is idle. The Vista report (below) tells me that there is a solution available which is great but it doesn't tell me what that is. I have no idea what the 3 files mentioned are or how to find them. I have run CHKDSK but it didn't find any issues though maybe I missed something. I have also updated all my drivers from Device Manager but it tells me that everything is up to date.
I have the date from the first shutdown. Is there anyway from that that I can see what was installed on that date that may be causing the problem? There is nothing close to that date that I can see in Control Panel.
My laptop is an ASUS M51Sn running off Vista x32 which was preinstalled and is about 3 years old. I have attached the files as per the BSOD guide.

A:Driver Power State Failure

Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Interestingly, each of the memory dumps mentions GEARAspiWDM.sys - a driver most commonly used by iTunes.
I'd suggest uninstalling iTunes in order to test this (but don't suspect that this is the cause). The reason it's involved (I think) is because the error is in the section of the chipset drivers that involves the controllers for the CD/DVD drives.

If this is your motherboard: ECS Web Site > GF8100VM-M5 (V1.0)
Then your chipset is the GeForce 8100/nForce 720a - which does have Win8 and 8.1 compatible drivers available from nVidia here: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers I cannot tell the dates of the drivers from the date of the package - you'll have to install it and see if the drivers are updated (we'll check them in any subsequent BSOD's).

But, the ECS website doesn't have any BIOS later than 2010 - and it appears it doesn't support Win8 on this motherboard.

Please update these older drivers (they're all part of the chipset drivers). Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually de... Read more

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.

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.

I have a 5 month old Lenovo Thinkpad, Win 32, Vista Basic, SP2 with all updates done. It and a desktop operate on my wireless private home network via a Linksys WRT160N router. On Oct. 2 I added a 1TB My Book World Edition as an auto backup drive and installed Western Digital software on the laptop only. My Book is connected via USB cable to the router. So far, the laptop isn't correctly loading or recognizing or connecting with the Western Digital drives, so no backups. While I'd like to solve that problem, the BSoD is first priority and may be related to the WD install.

I'm unclear about the connection between the events because the first mini dump was Sept. 29, before the WD install. Since Oct. 22, there have been frequent unexpected shutdowns, usually while the laptop is asleep. At various times my apps software has frozen (Word, Outlook) and the shutdown cycle then takes about 10 minutes. The script when recovering from an unexpected shutdown on Oct. 28 was:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.2
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

BCP1: 00000004
BCP2: 00000258
BCP3: 84152D78
BCP4: 00000000
OS Version: 6_0_6002
Service Pack: 2_0
Product: 768_1

Hello JimPA and welcome to TSF!

You may try these:

1.) Restart your computer Tap F8 and select Last Known Good Command Config and see if everything goes back to normal.
2.) If No. 1 is unsuccesful try uninstalling the WD software
3.) Do you have the 1 TB backup hooked up to your laptop? Unplug it
4.) Maybe you'll need your RAM upgraded
5.) If none of these works, since it's only 5mos old, it's under warranty, I would contact Lenovo.

Hello,
I've been getting the BSOD for Windows 8 since I've downloaded it. I purchased the digital copy online from Microsoft, but don't have a CD to do a reinstall, and really would hope to avoid wiping all my files. Sometimes I go weeks without getting the error, but I want to fix it once and for all. It always happens upon my PC "reawakening". Attached is the most recent Minidump https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=12EC8E4E1EFCF023!575&authkey=!ACvFmfUZxRKkwgM

If you have your upgrade key you can enter it HERE and download the upgrade again. If I remeber correctly they Give the option[or did before] to put the software on a USB drive.

Someone help me with this computer failure. See attached computer dump.

A:Power Driver State Failure

Hi, welcome to the forums You may need to post at our BSOD forum :-

BSOD, App Crashes And Hangs - Tech Support Forum

However as your error sites Ntoskrnl.exe and this is generic (probably not the cause) it may be a simple ACL's problem (many are) so run a chkdsk, in safe mode, cmd prompt, chkdsk/f
