BSoD - Driver Power State Failure after waking from sleep mode.

Q: BSoD - Driver Power State Failure after waking from sleep mode.

I'm using a Lenovo Y50 running Windows 8.1. This issue has been happening every now and then for the past week or so. I noticed it occurs briefly after waking the computer from sleep mode. I can get to the desktop but about a minute after waking, the laptop will freeze up and give me a blue screen saying it was a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I'm assuming this error has to do with some driver, but I don't know how to figure out which driver is the one causing the issue. I looked in Device Manager and can't find any yellow exclamation marks pointing out issues.

Here's a link to the most recent dmp file:

Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me out with this!

When I go to open my laptop back up everything comes on but the home screen won't come on. The fans run, LED backlight and keyboard comes on. I have to turn the laptop off by holding the power button then it all comes up. EDIT: I have went through the Lenovo Service Bridge and checked for updates and the only thing that wasn't updated was the solutions center so it looks like everything is up to date.Also I threw in the driver power state failure so I didn't have to open another thread. That has been going on for some time while I'm doing things and I'm not sure what to do.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure when waking from sleep

You have 3 hard drives - what is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

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)
- 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. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with you... Read more

Dear Sir/Madam,

I've been having this issue since updating to Windows 8.1. I will wake my computer from it's sleep and a few minutes later I get the BSOD. In one notable event early on, I got two in a row after the computer restarted from the previous BSOD.

I fiddled with my power settings (I was trying to avoid my computer actually shutting down during sleep/hibernation) a few months ago and after that I didn't have any BSOD events that I recall until this past week. When they do happen, they tend to happen in rapid succession, as you can see from the dates on the collected data I've attached (I see there's a .txt file with all my computer's information for you reference) - I've had one every day for the past three days.

I've read through many of these threads and tried several of the solutions. I am running verifier.exe since the BSOD has started up again since from what I can understand from reading the .dmp file and this forum that the message I'm getting about ntoskrnl.exe is misleading (?).

Please take a look at the dumps and other information collected from the DM Log Collector Tool and let me know if you can help me solve this problem.

Thank You.

A:BSOD Waking from Sleep (power state driver failure)

Hi, pnutbudder,

I've been having a similar problem since a few weeks ago. I suspect this is due to a recent Windows or driver update, since both of us had the same problem at the same time. I'm going to take a look at your dump files in a few hours, but in the meantime, could you tell me

1. whether you have Evernote or any Blizzard games installed
2. whether you've installed any new programs recently,
3. what graphics drivers you have installed,
4 what music or audio programs you have installed (eg, music players, movie editors, music studios and recording programs, game streaming programs)?

EDIT: Okay, I took a look at your dump files, and they point to a bad interaction between the "usbccgp.sys" and the "ksthunk.sys" driver. These are the same drivers that are misbehaving on my system, too (Lenovo Y510P). As far as I can tell, the only device that uses ksthunk.sys is the Lenovo EasyCam. Try this fix:

1. Download the "Broadwell" version of the camera driver on this page: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/prod...loads/DS101169 . We're going to replace your current camera driver with Lenovo's original camera driver.
2. Open "Device Manager" by right-clicking on the lower left corner of the screen.
3. Double-click "Imaging Devices" to open it.
4. Right-click "Lenovo EasyCamera" and click "Disable". You should see a small downward-pointing arrow appear next to the picture.

Hello,

Please take a look at the following thread and perform all of the requested steps.

Once you have all the requested reports please attach back here.

One dump is really not sufficient to determine the cause. The reports will also provide other info to help diagnose the issue.

The dump provided indicates a problem with the Realtek Network driver please try updating or re-installing this driver.

I would also suggest that you fully update Windows including the Windows 7 Service Pack.

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Using more than one antivirus program is not a good practice. It will make your system unstable in turn. Uninstall McAfee Using McAfee Removal Tool.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :

Hello all

This is my first post in here. Please bear over with my English – it is not my native language.

My problem is on a Media Centre machine where I recently upgraded Motherboard and processor. I have the following setup on the machine:
SILVERSTONE Grandia 04
DeZen PSU 500 Watt, TitanPower, 17-19 db
MB: Asus P8H77-MLE
CPU: Intel i3 2120
2x4 GB Corsair Vengeance ram (just bought new ones to see if it would help)
OCZ Agility 3 SSD 120 GB
1,5 TB WD Caviar Green
Asus P7131 Tuner
TERRATEC Cinergy DT USB XS Diversity
Hauppauge! WinTV-NOVA-T-Stick-Diversity
Hauppauge! Smart CI USB

My previous setup was with a AMD 240e but I have made a clean install.

I use Microsoft Security Essentials for antivirus and have firewall turned on.

The Media Centre machine is on for 24/7 on sleep mode for recordings or turned on for showing recordings.
Since the upgrade I have BSOD most times after it is turned on after sleep. The STOP occurs 4-5 minutes after the wake up either the wakeup is initiated from a recording or from user. I even see BSOD occur in the middle of the night where I have no recordings or other activity.

I have made several new install and tried to exclude the SSD and install a 32 bit Win7 – but the BSOD still occurs 4-5 min after awake.

I have updated all drivers and tried to run Verifier with no luck.

Hopefully someone can help

I've been trying to troubleshoot a BSOD I've been getting after my machine wakes up from sleep. Typically it takes 30-60 seconds after waking up. It's a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE which appears to be common in these situations but unfortunately, I can't seem to find the information I need to identify the driver causing the issue. Hopefully, I've attached what is needed to analyze the crash. Only the most latest few dumps are relevant. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD: Driver Power State Failure After Waking

I may have identified the culprit. MSI includes a piece of software with their MB that makes it easier to reboot into the BIOS after Fast Boot is enabled. I uninstalled this software and also disabled Fast Boot in the bios. I haven't had a BSOD since. Hopefully, that was it. It has only been a day since I discovered the issue so I'm not 100% convinced but so far so good.

I am experiencing an issue with my laptop where I can't allow it to enter sleep mode or else it will restart/appear to have restarted the next time I wake it up. At first I thought it might be a power options issue, but I made sure that the computer was set to sleep and not restart when I close the lid. I've checked the bluescreen viewer and the cause of the restart seems to come from a driver power state failure coming from ntoskrnl.exe+1fcc1e, hal.dll+6a37, and storport.sys+33f0.

I've already run sfc/scannow to check for damaged files and I was also able to replace them using a DISM command, so now scanning the computer doesn't run into any errors, but this driver error still persists.

Sidenote: The driver errors mainly started after I reinstalled Kaspersky onto my computer to fix some issues that I had with it. Before that I was getting a couple of kernel data inpage errors, the latest of which occurred June 1.

so i uninstalled... it still makes no different , still i can't put my computer to sleep.
after that i uninstalled the vpn and wifi sharing software, it still makes no different.

Now, as we can see from the Dump file analysis, "tunnel.sys" has been blamed which is the Microsoft's Tunneling Driver but since it is a component of Windows, chance of it being the culprit is extremely low. This means your guess that the BSOD are caused by the VPN Software.

On checking the Drivers, I found the SoftEther VPN installed on your system. Please uninstall it from the system and see if the system still BSOD's or not.

Let me know how it goes ^_^.

I'm having a BSOD problem. After walking computer from sleep mode, within 1-2 minutes it will get a BSOD with the "driver power state failure" error and restart, but interestingly I never get the error the moment I wake up the computer.

I already tried uninstalling the Intel HD 4000 driver, restarting computer, and installing the one on Lenovo's site (as this was suggested on the Lenovo forum as a common fix) but it didn't help. The problem only started occurring after one of the following:
- Updating Malwarebytes to latest last week
- Installing a Windows update last week (there were 3 installed components, 1 of them was an Intel HD 4000 driver update, forgot what the other 2 were)
- Updating GeForce Experience and latest NVIDIA Graphics Driver (337.88), it included NVIDIA PhysX System Software 9.13.1220

Been having issues with sleep mode with my build for months but in the past couple weeks it has gotten worse. When the computer goes into sleep, there's about a 50 percent chance it will wake up when I move the mouse. The other times I have to hard restart. In the past week it is now BSODing and giving me the attached dump reports. I'm pretty sure it's a driver issue but I can't narrow it down any more than that. Interested to hear what the experts think.

i used blue-screen view and with each time it registers a error it's with the driver for the NTOSKRNL.exe... i really hope that someone could help me because i just want my computer to go back to normal....and i wish that the problem has nothing to do with bit-defender......

Hello,

I left my computer on and open this morning before I left for class. When I returned, I had a BSOD, which specified "Driver Power State Failure" (I did not copy down any numbers, as I probably should have). I did a forced shut down (held the power button) and then restarted it, where it fortunately works for now.

My laptop is an Dell XPS-15, about two years old. I have not had any problems with it until now, and the past week or so it has been freezing up. I downloaded the SF Diagnostic Tool, and the zipped folder is attached.

I am uncertain what action to take next. Could someone advise me in how to fix the issue?

Thank you!!

A:BSOD after sleep or hibernation - "Driver Power State Failure"

upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

Hi,
I've been getting persistent BSOD's when attempting to wake up my computer (Lenovo Twist u230) from sleep. I am also sporadically getting Kernal Data Inpage Error BSOD while using my computer.

My machine is Windows 8, installed from factory with a recent refresh done. SFC /SCANNOW and DISM both come up clean. All of my hardware diagnostics are also clean.

Help!

Which hardware diagnostics have you done?

Please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Just a guess at this point, but try removing Diskeeper to see if that helps.
If not that, then try removing the Citrix software to see if it helps.

Hi,

Every time I try to put put my laptop to sleep, hibernate, restart it or shutdown, it stalls for about 10 minutes before giving me a Driver Power State Failure.

Having installed "WhoCrashed" and "Windbg", I was able to determine it was related to "ntkrnlmp.exe", "ndis.sys", "raspppoe.sys" and a vpn driver at one point or another. I "believe" I managed to uninstall the offending vpn driver but of course still overall have the same issue.

This appeared to occur while trying to do a windows update last week but I can't be sure. I presume, there is a out of date or corrupt driver but just can't seem to determine which one.

Many thanks in advance,

Hob

A:Driver Power State Failure on Sleep, Hibernate, Restart or Shutdown

Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.
Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

Uninstall Daemon ToolsDownload the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
Double click the executable to open itClick on the button shown below

If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window

   Warning
Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.
ONLY install the drivers from your manufacturer!

Please remove your VPN software.

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.

A:BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Hi -

I count 28 BSODs that you have had since installing Windows 7 RC on August 3, 2009. There were only 8 dumps in the zip file. I assume the other 20 were removed as a space saving measure.

The "mini" kernel dumps are by far some of the largest that I have seen -- especially for a Windows 7 x64 system. Each weighs in at just around 800k. Average is ~ 275k.

The bugcheck on the dumps is as your thread title suggests = 0x9f

0x9f (0x3,,,) = a device is blocking an IRP longer than permitted causing a driver to be in an "inconsistent state of power". The device in question is hogging the IRP, other devices cannot access it that need to; a stalemate ensues with no way out - and thus the BSOD. Either way, you lose.

IRP = I/O Request Packet

More on IRPs ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I/O_request_packets

The non-Microsoft driver that shows up the most in the dumps as a probable cause of the BSODs is your NIC Intel Ethernet driver. I know it is the most recent one available -

Code:

e1e6232e.sys Fri Jun 05 12:08:41 2009 (4A296D39)

My very recently purchased laptop was showing some problems from last 2 days. It would get stuck at the shutdown screen and then after extended span of time I had to press and hold power key to turn it off. It happened only twice. (And if this may help I tell you I had updated atleast one or the other thing before shutting it down...either through HP Support Assistant or Windows update.

Last night i ran Windows Update and tried to turn off my pc but since updates were being installed it said Windows will shut down once the updates are installed automatically...so i went to sleep only to find in the morning a BSOD. It was stuck on it again i had to turn off my pc by holding power button and then windows refused to boot beyond the Windows 7 logo black screen. But after a couple of retries it started.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

The crash indicates possible Windows corruption or memory problems. The crash bugcheck itself indicates a driver issue.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.
Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

Hi folks. I'm getting the Driver Power State Failure blue screen in Windows 7 x64. Here are my vitals:

It's an HP dv6-3052nr laptop with a fingerprint scanner.

? Windows 7 x64 Home Premium OEM - I have not reinstalled the OS since I got it from HP, and I am ok with doing that if need be.
? This is a brand new laptop, it's only like 2 months old at most
? Intel Core i7 720QM, 6GB ram
? ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
? No idea what the motherboard or power supply is

This is your run of the mill new laptop. I use it for web browsing and communication, but I use it as a music recording computer, so I have some music programs installed. Also, I have a USB audio interface for music recording as well.

The blue screen has happened twice in the last two days, and once a few days ago. I have been getting a popup dialog that says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" on startup as well too; it happens after the blue screen error but it has also happened after I have closed the lid on the laptop. I think the cause is actually my fingerprint reader, because it has its own sleep/wake cycle and it doesn't always wake when I open my laptop up.

I have attached all requested files as per the BSOD posting instructions. I hope you guys can help me out! Thanks for everything.

I know little about computers but I can follow directions well.

This is my computer

OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium , Service Pack 2, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 6
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 4089 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS , 1024 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 295242 MB, Free - 181383 MB;
Motherboard: Gateway , IMV , Not Applicable , INVALID
Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

It has been giving me the blue screen of death at least daily for over a week usually around 8 pm but it does like to mix things up and do it at other times. It was doing this same kind of thing this past march and I reformated which fixed the problem. However I would rather not do that again. I did a system restore back to the begining of the month but that didn't help.

Based on Blue screen viewer most of my prolems have been caused by ntoskrnl.exe. I have attached JPEGs of what it shows

Hello,

Did a clean install of Windows 8.1 - I previously had Windows 7. I have already had 4 'Driver Power State Failure' BSODs. I have attached the files from the SF Diagnostic tool.

Any solutions?

NB: This is a custom built PC with an Asus P8H61-M LX3 Plus R2.0 mobo.

Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Hi lfc123 and welcome to the forums!

Driver_Power_State_Failure with code 9F means that an Input / Ouput Request was not received back by the operating system even after a long time.

I have analyzed your DUMP files and the problem is caused by "netr28ux.sys" . I was only able to analyze the first DUMP file as the second one is corrupt, dunno why?

Visit this link Driver Reference Table

and update your driver from the given link.

Let me know incase the problem is not resolved and I will be happy to assist more
Also, if this solves your problem, please don't forget to mark this thread as solved.

I have an ASUS S56CM laptop with Windows 8.1.

For the past few days I have been getting a BSOD (Driver Power State Failure) upon start up. Leading up to this, my computer would freeze completely at random times not that often and I had to do a hard shut down to fix it.

The past three days have been identical. When turning my computer on from a completlely off state, it takes forever to start then eventually gives me the BSOD. The 0% thing never loads so I do a hard shut down and turn the computer back on. It still takes forever to start (8 minutes +) but I don't get a BSOD and am able to use the computer fine. Then when shutting down, it takes over 6-8 minutes as well. Before all this, my computer would get to the log in screen in under one minute.

I had a program called "WhoCrashed" but it hasn't logged any of the BSOD's from startup, only ones that I had when the computer was already on. For one of them, it told me the error may have been caused by iastora.sys which was the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. I tried to delete this as well as installing a newer version but it didn't fix anything.

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!
Add to that the release of the Win10 preview and my system messing up - and I'm way behind on replying to topics. Sorry!

Do your still need help with this problem?
I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.

This was Related to Rt64win7.sys 8101E/8168/8169 NDIS 6.20 64-bit Driver from Realtek Corporation

I would re-install using newest.

My brand new HP Envy computer already got this blue screen [driver power state failure was all I was able to read].
Got scared! Rebooted, it was hard to get the wifi connection back, but I did. Rebooted again, just to make sure, and it takes much longer time for it now, to come back to life.

I might add I wasn't doing anything at all when it happened ... just woke it up from sleeping.

[I'm a rather unexperienced user ]

I've been experiencing issues with my computer. It tends to blue screen and reads "Driver_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". I've tried to run some scans and diagnostics and even backed up my PC and then rebooted it with factory new settings, but it is still BSOD. I have a dump file, but I cannot post it because it says I do not have permission to open or attach it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks!

A:Driver Power State Failure - BSOD

You need to follow these directions
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I've been coming across this bsod for a few weeks now, it only happens when i put the computer into sleep/hibernate. It even happens sometimes when the computer tries to start from a cold boot. The only hardware change i've made to the computer was a new wireless adapter from netgear model no.: WNA3100. I made sure to download the latest driver to support windows 8 but the bsod still occurs.

Heres a link to my minidump file if anyone can analyze it and tell me which driver is causing the problem it would be much appreciated.
