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.)

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

I shut down my laptop as I usually do, but I was short in time, so I didn't watch it turn off. When I came back home a few hours later, I found it turned on, showing the lock screen. Apparently it had a BSOD while it was shutting down and then restared.
I ran bluescreen view and it said it was a driver power state failure cause by ntoskrnl.exe, but I have no idea what to do to prevent it from happening again... It was the only time so far, but I had that same BSOD on another laptop and it was recurrent, a real pain in the ass... I don't want that to happen to this laptop too.

Not much info here.

I wonder about USB devices first - as there's traces of Windows USB drivers in the stack.
In particular I'm suspicious of the Rainbow Tech/SafeNet USB Security Device - as it's driver (Sentinel64.sys) dates from 2008 and I've seen problems with these devices in the past.

If I'm correct, uninstalling the software for this device and physically removing it from your system should stop the BSOD's.

Please update these older 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 delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

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

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 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:

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.

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.

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 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,
