BSOD - driver power state failure/driver IRQL not less or equal

Q: BSOD - driver power state failure/driver IRQL not less or equal

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.

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'd appreciate help resolving the ongoing BSOD error I'm encountering for the past 3-4 weeks.

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.

You have AVG installed, is that correct? At least to test, uninstall it and install MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) instead.

These drivers can be found by searching them in Google and then finding the associated software or driver. Finally, find the latest version of this driver or software and download and install it. Some of the drivers may also be found here (if the driver says 'Windows Update' simply make sure all Windows Updates are installed).

You should also update any other drivers you can think of including graphics, audio, chipset, SSD etc.

hey guys
randomly my computer started to freeze. when the computer would freeze the sound (if there was music or something) would be stuck in a loop, the keyboard and mouse would freeze and the fans in the computer would slow down if i was playing a video game and needed the fan to spin faster. sometimes it would unfreeze but sometimes it wouldn't. this eventually lead to me having to forcefully shut down my computer. over the course of time i started getting the DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL error message as well as DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE. sometimes when i turn off my computer the screen goes black, my keyboard and mouse turn off, but the light on my computer is on and the computer still runs. sometimes when choose restart it does the same thing, also when i boot it would freeze during the microsoft loading screen. i still randomly get these however it happens almost instantly when playing any type of computer game, it happens with lots of videos too if i'm watching any. i updated drivers for my graphics card that did nothing at all. also ran tests on hardware and ram memory, found no problems.
i ran the verifier and got this BSOD upon start up
0xC9(0x23E, 0xFFFFFA8004a002C0, 0xFFFFF98004EA6EE0, 0x0)

i have the zipped folder attached. i couldnt put perfmon on it because mine seemed to just get stuck at "collecting data for 60 seconds"

The driver caught by verifier was cdrom.sys a MS windows driver, did you select only non MS drivers when setting up verifier?
Follow the instructions here, make sure to set a restore point before enabling verifier, also if you do not have Windows disk create a Windows repair disk

I am receiving random BSODs with the subject line description.  My first stop was to the HP Support site to possibly update any drivers (like bios??).  I found many driver updates available, including 2 for the bios.  I really have no clue as to which driver updates to install, even after reading the details.  I looked for where it says recommended or required or something but didn't see it.  I then installed the HP Support Solutions and did a scan to determine what drivers it thought I needed and it came up with none.  Now I'm real confused.  Does that mean all the driver updates on the HP site are just optional?  Can someone provide a good site link to read about how to determine which drivers are needed?  Thank you for your help!

The memory dumps blame your networking drivers (e22w8x64.sys) - but as you've recently changed a lot related to your networking - I'd suggest running Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Also, please update your networking drivers to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version available from the manufacturer's website. Your drivers date from March of 2013 - well before Win8.1 came out.

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

A:DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE BSOD

Hi dshaw02 and Welcome to TSF,

Please follow the posting instructions found here, ZIP all the files down and attach them to your next post.

After looking through this specific BSOD a bit there are a few thing i'd like you to either inactivate or update as they're old drivers:

STREAM.SYS Tue Jul 14 01:06 : 18 2009 (4A5BCBFA)

Belongs to: Pinnacle Instant DVD recorder

AND

atikmdag.sys Mon Feb 28 16:46:24 2011 (4D6BD160)

There is a newer driver found at ATI's webpage. Uninstall this driver, reboot the machine, install the new ones.

I can't really tell more from this BSOD you've attached, i'll need all the information from the BSOD instructions. All for now is that ONE driver is calling the System Kernel, and sending an invalid command for the operating system, and then crashes.

The Skinny

I found this forum from this thread with a similar prob. What's happening right now is,

Main prob:

1. The system can become slow after 15 mins, then the Shutting Down screen takes forever, when I pressed the ON button, I get the BSOD.

Minor issues

2. I'm always starting in 'Test Mode' since this began
3. Sometimes, the usb attached vodafone thumb-modem just stops working/undetected and I have to reinstall it, a result of 'Test Mode'?
4. I just got a Trackman Marble, can the SetPoint driver be the culprit?

Details:


Quote:




Last week, I faced some BSOD probs, but solved it by uninstalling the KB973879 Microsoft Update.

Things were relatively crash-free after that.

Yesterday I went to look at the downloaded but uninstalled MS Updates (horribly BAD idea ) and picked some updates while unticking 2 of those KB#### updates.

At restart, the ShutDown process went (screen is black, comp still on) on for an absurdly long time... I can't make it reboot with the ON button, in the end after 20 minutes I just removed the battery.




Argh!! Why??

I have gone through and confirmed all of the drivers are the latest version.

Hey there again guys! Recently my computer has been giving me a handful of BSoDs lately, claiming to have shut down because of a "driver power state failure". I've done my Google homework on this problem, but none of the forums I've checked were specific to the issues I've been having with my system. They include: updating drivers, deleting certain things and etc, but they all have different stuff on their computer than I have. It's happened to me five times since it started, last week or so. I'd love you forever if you could figure out for me why I keep getting my BSoDs!

I've attached the .dmp file and thank you guys! <3
 

A:BSoD -- driver power state failure

When does the BSOD occur?
I'd start by taking out any add-on peripherals inside your PC. Leave only the required components required to get into Windows connected - motherboard, ram, cpu, graphics card (if neccesary), and hard drive.
If it continues with this setup, i think it may be graphics drivers.

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.

Hi all, I've been receiving a Driver Power State Failure BSOD after shutting down/restarting my machine since yesterday. I just installed the Windows 7 RC1 but noticed people have helped out with this BSOD error on these forums before. My shutdown is taking around 20 minutes before crashing with the BSOD. How do I find out what is causing the error and fix it? Should I post my minidump? Thanks.

First let me give a huge "THANKS" for this extremely helpful forum and service. I would not have any hope of correcting this issue on my own or without giving up my machine for a few days to an IT pro to fix it, which I do not have the luxury of time to do.

? x64
? Vista Premium (2009)
? Original Vista was installed already, Windows 7 upgrade came from a retailer and I installed it.
? Age of system (hardware) - 3 years
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? I have not re-installed, but there are multiple copies of it because I added a new HDD and cloned the original before making the new one the primary HDD.

? CPU - Intel Core2 Duo T9550 @ 2.66GHz
? Video Card - NVidia GeForce GT 130M (1GM VRAM)
? MotherBoard - Don't know
? Power Supply - 90W, brand unknown

Thank you again for this service. I look forward to your diagnosis.

A:BSOD - 9f - Driver Power State Failure

Hi -

As the thread title states, the bugcheck on both dumps -

0x9f (0x3,,,) = driver in an inconsistant power state and blocking an IRP for too long a time. Probable cause is Atheros.

Are you running ESET ESS w/ firewall or just NOD32 anti-virus? I see you have ESET newest version v 4.2.40.0, so installation must have been recent. When exactly and do you know if BSODs began before or after new ESET install?

I usually find 3rd party firewalls involved in 0x9f (0x3,,,) BSODs. I myself run NOD32 a/v only on this particular system - not ESS.

Run the Driver Verifier --> http://jcgriff2.com/Driver_Verifier.htm

What is exact model of HP dv5? Look on bottom label. There are numbers after dv5-xxxx. Is HP support where you got the Atheros wifi driver update?

My New Years Resolution is to get my laptop back to normal.

I've been having this issue for awhile where if I leave it sitting idle for a couple of minutes and come back, it may or may not cooperate. It frequently gets 'stuck' and becomes unresponsive. Every so often the BSoD pops up and gives the Driver Power State Failure.

I've zipped the documents as per the instructions in jcgriff2's signature.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

I have a year old Windows 7 Acer Laptop. Has been performing fine, but have had a couple of Blue Screens in the past week, one of which was a "Driver Power State Failure".

Have attached the minidump files to this message. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

For some reason, I've started having this problem again, and I can't pinpoint what is causing it. I'm getting the BSOD with the error message "Driver Power State Failure." I've tried certain things to prevent, but to no avail.

Here is my system info:

OS-Vista Home Premium SP2, 64 Bit
This is the original OS on the system
Came pre installed on the laptop
Laptop is about one year old
OS has never been re-installed

Afraid that is all I know, unless someone could tell me how to get other info (motherboard, video card, etc).

Here is the crash dump log (Had to break it into two files). I tried to get the system health report, but I couldn't get it to work.

Hi

I recently changed the case and added some internal peripherials to my computer. I have a 950W power supply so what I have should not be Bluescreening my computer. I cannot open the ,dmp files to find out what is going on. Can anyone help?

My system:
Win 7 Ultimate 32bit
950W power supply
4 hard drives
2 Super Mulit Optical drives
1 flash card bay
Asus motherboard (that was running fine before I changed cases)
in win IRONCLAD case (4 120 fans, and 1 huge fan)

I am attaching the BSOD for today as a zip file.

A:BSOD with Driver power state Failure

Make and model of your Asus mobo?

Please post the info from this topic: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Initial triage suggests a problem with vclone.sys - a component of your VirtualCloneCD driver.
This theory is also supported by the presence of drivers related to it that date from 2002 (ElbyCDFL.sys and
ElbyVCD.sys)
I'd suggest uninstalling it to see if that stops the BSOD's

Also, your Norton shows up in the memory dumps, so I'd keep an eye on that.

PLease remove or update these older drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the update function of Device Manager:

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.

I am attaching the files.
Please help.

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!!!

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.

Any help is appreciated. This BSOD error has happened 3 or 4 times over the past couple months.
Each time after a hard shut down and reboot it seems to work normal.
Today when before it happened Chrome internet was very slow/lagging but that might have been wifi related not sure.

Your crashes are being caused by McAfee. It has a 2008 driver attached to it. You should update to a newer version of McAfee, and if you already have, the old version may not have been completely removed. Uninstall, download a fresh copy of the most up to date installer for McAfee, and re-install McAfee to see if that resolves the crashes.

How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe)


If the above does not work, remove McAfee completely using MCPR and replace it with either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.


Also, update the following driver:
Code:
fffff880`04784000 fffff880`047b6000 Rt64win7 Rt64win7.sys Thu Feb 26 02:04:13 2009 (49A65B0D)
It is your LAN driver, and you can find the update through HP Support for your model:
HP Support & Drivers | United States

You can also find it here:

A:BSOD - Driver power state failure

Hi and Welcome back to SF!

This is probably driver issue. Please update the following driver

Code:
iaStorV iaStorV.sys Wed Apr 08 23:57:17 2009 (49DCD76D)
It was blamed in the dmp, the date of driver is old as well, please update it right now.
Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver


Code:
ASACPI ASACPI.sys Mon Mar 28 09:30:36 2005 (42476C4C)
The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 10th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

Hi Everyone,

Got a BSOD yesterday and want to see if you guys could help me isolate the issues. This is my first BSOD in about a week.

Actually, things used to be alot worse like a week ago, I was getting random BSODs due to the installation of a Belking Wireless Adapter. I thought I had everything resolved by uninstalling the drivers and then reinstalling under windows XP because I haven't had a BSOD since then.

Anyways, I am running Windows 7 and would appreciate any help.

Thank you,
Abad

Hey...

I have a Dell System XPS L502X. It's a Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium edition (64 bit) Service pack 1 and I bought the laptop this July.

I've been encountering this problem since quite sometime. I close my laptop lid to put it into sleep mode, but sometimes when I open the lid, the laptop's automatically shut down. When I press the power button and start the computer it gives me a notice "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" stating Bluescreen as the cause.
I installed the bluescreen view application and it shows that the crash is caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe and the bug check code is 0x00000009f. The bug check string column says "Driver_power_state_failure".

Attaching the minidump files and the bluescreenview results.

Please help!

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

The driver SynTP.sys is holding up your system, which is causing the crash. This is for the Synaptic Touchpad, and the file should be located \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\SynTP.sys. I noticed it's dated from Dec 2010, which is pretty dated. Check the Dell website to see if there's an update for it, as well as your BIOS. If there isn't (as in yours is the latest), you may need to contact their tech support for on update. Sometimes the techs will have a hotfix version of the driver available for specific cases. If they ask for information, provide them the following output below. Say that this is identical in every crashdump you've provided to us.

Hello TechSupportForum guys ,

i hope you can help me resolve following issues:

1. ISSUE - DVD ROM DRIVE

My DVD/CD ROM (MATSHITA UJ8C2) powers off on its own each time i start the laptop. I changed options in power management but the problem still persists. Also I am only able to eject dvd-drive, when pressing on eject button on the side of laptop. Ejecting in My Computer doesnt work - DVD RW Drive (powered off) is displayed with single line crossed red circle icon.

Device Manager message today:

Two different messages for DVD ROM Drive appeared after I booted the laptop.

Trasparent icon in device manager:
Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

Icon with yellow triangle
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)

The driver could not be loaded because a previous version of the driver is still in memory.

2.ISSUE - Continueous Dropping of Shared internet connection

For the last couple of days, when I share the internet connection via wifi using cmd line netsh wlan start hostednetwork, the other devices - laptop thinkpad w520 and mobile phones - lose connection after few minutes. I must then turn off/on wifi adapter and restart the batch file with netsh wlan start hostednetwork. However, sometimes the wifi adapter doesnt turn on, so I'm forced to reboot... Read more

A couple days ago I did a force shutdown while my computer was mid shutdown, corrupting some windows files (I thought I smelt my computer burning so did a panic shutdown, but it was something else burning)

initially windows would not boot from my ssd, it would go all black with green artifacts on the screen just before the welcome screen, but I still had another windows install on my old HDD so I just booted from that without issue. I then ran the windows repair from install disc and it fixed the windows install on my SSD.

Since then, however; when I leave my computer unattended for a while I get a BSOD on returning with the driver state failure message. I'm not sure if this is occurring on sleep/hibernation or on reboot from the windows update I was trying to do.

Your guys' help is much appreciated, thanks!

update: did a reboot, no issue. Tried to put the computer to sleep, another BSOD.
uploaded a new SF rar file, as well as the debug tool zip file

Hi Strini.

First of all, make it sure that the SSD is running with the latest firmware.
How to Upgrade Samsung SSD Firmware | StorageReview.com - Storage Reviews

Also update the BIOS to version F10b dated 2012/08/31 (not to the latest one) if possible. The newer BIOS and SSD firmware is most needed to run a SSD properly.

Get rid of intel rapid storage. First uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
It will open the "computer management" window.
Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.

Hello win7ndhlp.

You are facing some extensive network related crashes. And this is behind them all.

Security Software: ??? Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.

A:Driver State Power Failure BSOD

Hello and Welcome !

Seems like lot of issues are going on. First thing i noticed is sptd.sys duplex driver which i well known for BSOD. I would recommend to uninstall it follow this article DuplexSecure - FAQ

Also it looks to me like it's an issue with AiCharger.sys - an Asus program named AiCharger (may also be a part of the Asus AISuite or ASUS Ai Charger). Then uninstall the current copy of the program and install the freshly downloaded copy.

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.
