BSOD - ntoskrnl.exe "driver power state failure" at shutdown

Q: BSOD - ntoskrnl.exe "driver power state failure" at shutdown

I'm getting a BSOD pretty much every time I shutdown the PC. Has only just started happening in the last couple of weeks.

caused by driver: ntoskrnl.exe

I've attached the SFDiagnostic here - thanks.

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 thedriver.

The BSODs are caused by REALTEK 2832U USB Driver (c:\windows\system32\drivers\rtl2832uusb.sys)

Hi Folks,

I really hope you can help me, I followed the instructions to create the attachement.

What I know so far is that this machine has BSOD'd several times...The last 2 times a ultilty called BlueScreenViewer.exe says it's due to "Driver power state failure" caused by: ntoskrnl.exe

I checked event viewer for the time mentioned 6/17/2012 11:29:02 pm and it says there is system error "source:Bug Check" at that exact time

For anti-virus I have MS Security Essentials. For Spyware, I have Spybot S&D.
I use with Workstation 7 as a study too so it has hosed my VMs which is very disappointing. I would really like to root cause this to continue with confidence...

I know you hear this all the time...but... please help! I don't mind collecting info and checking into things, I am just out of my element a little here.

I looked throug the results of the permon report and it seems clean for the most part.

Thanks in advance,

I recently upgraded my motherboard, processor and memory, then installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 x64 Pro. I've been having problems from day 1. Originally, the computer would hang at either "logging off" or "shutting down" whenever I'd try to restart the machine (which is frequently when you're having to install drivers and programs). Now, it will still hang, but will then BSOD on me.

I've also come home once or twice and found that it'd BSOD'd while I was away. I think I've updated all the drivers, but like I said - I've been having issues from the start, and I'm not sure everything finished installing cleanly.

BSOD error has consistently been "Driver Power State Failure".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Dumps attached.


A:BSOD with "Driver Power State Failure" -new build - hangs on shutdown

I'd still love to know what was messing my system up, but I ended up doing a complete reinstall anyway.

My Windows 7 key is an upgrade key, and Microsoft makes finding install media unnecessarily difficult. The image I used the first time was a bit... sketchy. I'm hoping that this time around I won't have the same issues, but I guess only time will tell.

I have been getting the BSOD since a few weeks and found out by trial and error that a USB-hub is causing the problem. Whenever I disconnect the hub before I shut off the computer I do not get the blue screen.
Yesterday I also got a BSOD that mentioned driver power state failure. After I had de-installed Ubuntu 10.04 (I wanted to see what people are talking about but did not really like it) that problem did not show up again, although I do not know if that is just coincidence.

I have enclosed the dump files as per your instructions and hope that somebody will be able to help me.
Thank you.

It does look as if your USB drivers are causing the issue.

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.

My Alienware M17x suffers daily, random BSODs, I think most are Driver Power State Failures. These persist when I re-install my NVIDIA drivers (I even tried using Driver Fusion to get a clean install), but they do seem more frequent with the recent beta drivers. Maybe it's my Intel display drivers...? BSODs occur when starting programs, ending programs, in programs, and when I have everything closed. Random.

I'm open to the idea that it could be physical damage (if that's possible). My laptop shipped with a busted DVD drive, so if that's a physical issue, there could be others.

Changing my anti-virus from Avast to MSE was advised on another forum but made no difference.

A possibly-completely-unrelated symptom: my laptop won't boot (freezes on splash screen) when I have a USB device plugged in (like my mouse). Changing my boot order doesn't seem to fix this.

Thanks for your time and help! My warranty expires in two weeks but I'm in Africa so Dell won't send home support :P

I have been using my asus laptop but recently started blue screening. When trying to shut it down the screen will go black, but the system lights remain on and it remains running, however irresponsive. It also began showing a blue screen with the warning "Driver power state failure".

Even after a factory reset this problem remains. Any help to figure out the problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Chalcogen & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analyzed your only dump file and a summary of that is given below :-

i Bought a new laptop DELL inspiron 3542 i7 model. I had problems with it like BSOD, slow perfomance and touchpad. I contacted dell and they replaced the Hard drive as well as the touchpad. But i was still getting BSOD whenevr i open the dell touchpad properties. So i uninstalled the driver. Also when i launch Crysis 3 the game freezes at the game launch itself and the touchpad stops working but mouse works and then BSOD. I uninstalled the nvidia geforce 840 m driver completely and installed the beta version but still i am facing the problem!! And the most important thing is that this happens only while i use my laptop on its battery. When i plug in the charger it never happens..i never see bsod while charging. Today i tried something..i was using my laptop with the AC adapter plugged in (charging) and then i suddenly unplugged it and my touchpad froze (while external mouse still working) and i got the error (BSOD) " DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE". Games like sniper 3, cod: ghosts works fine..but when i launch crysis 3 or GTA 4, i get the error..But when plugged in, all the games works smoothly. Please help me, i have bought this laptop just 21 days before!!
One more thing: Last time when i reformatted my hard drive(old one) this problem was solved..but with is new hard drive i have formatted it 3 times and installing windows but it didnt help me

New windows 7 install on one of my home built workstations. I have an appearantly random BSOD. It sometimes runs for days, sometimes hours. I may have multiple issues (I have not been around to see it). Usually I start folding at home (stanford project) and leave it when I am not using the terminal for CAD, CAM or FEA. I just upgraded to windows 7 for this build so I would fall in the noob catogory for windows 7 user. (example:I just figured out how to unhide all the folders). I am also not the only user of this machine so who knows what has been done in the last couple weeks.

The hardware is all the same as it was running xp with the exception of the harddrive (new Intel 520 240gb ssd) on a fresh OS install from new hd. Also the motherboard got a bios update. From the name of the BSOD I would guess my drivers need updating but between windows update, intel updates and EVGA updates I haven't found any that haven't been updated. I updated my forum computer hardware list if you need that.

Any help fixing this would be great.

Computer freezes and crashes irregularly when watching youtube videos in google chrome. was just a minor inconvenience, but I have recently installed adobe creative suite and if I have a video playing it will always crash into a BSOD after about 5 minutes of non-interactive freeze. Some sources I have found have hinted that it may be my Nvidia card drivers, but I have been unable to fix it.

Last night, when sending my computer to stand by I received the BSOD which included a message saying "power driver state failure" or something along those lines.

I recently reset my computer to the factory settings (via recovery disc), so the problem could be any of the dozens of applications I've installed since. This is the second time I received the BSOD since resetting my computer.

I suspect the problem might be related to my optical drive. Basically, what happens is that sometimes the drive will just stop working. It still shows up in "My Computer", but labeled as "CD Drive" rather than "DVD-RAM Drive" as it normally does, and it won't recognize any disk that is inserted. A reboot of the system usually "fixes" the problem, but not always. I also had this problem before resetting my computer.

I'm including the minidump files here. I tried looking at them myself--I installed and ran the Windows Debugger, which came back with a message "Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe ( nt+5c846 )" But the debugger also gave a number of warnings about my "symbols" not loading properly.

I don't need to contact a semiotician, do I?

I'm using a ASUS S56CA ultrabook which runs VERY SLOWLY (takes 5+ minutes to boot up)!
OS is Windows 8.1 with ALL the latest Windows Updates installed.

I get the BSOD error "Driver_Power_State_Failure" usually when trying to enter sleep mode or using the Instant ON feature from ASUS .. neither of them work properly so after researching online I've decided to REMOVE the Intel? Rapid Storage Technology (Intel? RST) RAID Driver .. reboot and it's still VERY slow to boot. I've also tried to d/l new drivers from the ASUS website (only BIOS and few others) which were also installed but still get same results. The Intel HD 4000 Graphics is also out of date but I cannot d/l the update from the intel website .. shows file not available?

It also does NOT shut down completely .. select Shut Down from the menu and screen goes BLACK but power never goes off .. so I must manually hold the power button 5 seconds to shut down.

Finally, I've turned OFF ALL power saving features in Power Options .. no sleep .. no turn HDD off, etc.

I need to know how to fix this system so it does NOT take 5 minutes to boot up please.

I'm also attaching the last 4 minidump files for review .. plus I'll use the SF utility tonight to get the other suggested files on this forum.

I recently encountered a sudden blue screened error message with the following error that was suggested to research: "Power_Driver_State_Failure". I have only seen the error once thus far, but I fear that I may see it again at some point. It forced a restart, and the rebooting process was rather slow.
My operating system is Windows 8.1, and I have a Lenovo Y510p ideapad (nearly 9 months old).
Is this a significant error? Is there any way to prevent it from returning again?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,

It seems to happen with more demanding games. Desktop, internet browsing and less demanding games it works very well, but during games such as Portal 2 or Skyrim it freezes my entire computer. When I try to ALT+TAB out it either goes to a blank screen or it just doesn't do anything at all. I usually have to force restart my computer in order to get it working properly again. Anyone have any ideas on what I should do next?

I have a Promise Ultra133 IDE controller; perhaps that's not cooperating with the sleep function?

Thanks in advance.

this crash was caused by disk.sys. It can mean either the win 7 file (disk.sys) is corrupt or there is a problem with the controller.

I would run a system file check to verify the system files
to do that type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>>dfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and "/")

Let us know the results as you may have to re-run it.

Hey guys, as thread title states, I sometimes get "Driver Power State Failure" after logging into Windows 8 (not 8.1).

I believe it is my Sierra Wireless 760S Aircard 4G modem causing the issue but I'm not entirely sure, and sometimes it doesn't detect it until I unplug and reconnect the usb cable after booting.

Any help greatly appreciated.


A:Sometimes get "Driver Power State Failure" after login

In the "Device Manager", find that device, look under "Properties / Power management " and uncheck " Allow this computer to turn off

Hello, my computer has crash 4 times within the past two hours. I believe it has something to do with the Elgato Game Capture HD software I installed on the computer, since it seemed to only happen when I was either using it, or trying to uninstall it. Currently, I've uninstalled it, and no BSOD so far. I have updated my drivers and performed any windows updates available. Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello guys,
I tried resolving this issue by myself, but I can't figure it out. I'm getting BSOD on my new laptop. The laptop is brand new, I bought it about one month ago. It came with the default linux OS installed by the manufacturer, but I did a format and I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Machine specs:
Acer Aspire V3-771G 736b4G75Maii
CPU: Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz
GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 640M 2GB DDR3 memory
RAM: 1x 4GB DDR3
HDD: 750 GB Toshiba

I got BSOD 3 times, every time I was browsing the internet using Mozilla Firefox. First couple of times I was on facebook checking some pictures and the 3rd time I was on forums looking for a solution to this problem. The BSOD happened when the laptop was on high performance settings, but i can't remember if it was plugged in or not.

As i said, the laptop is 1 month old, but it came with a broken speaker so it was sent to the service where they replaced the entire front cover. They said the reason is that the speakers are glued to the front cover so it was not possible to replace only the speakers. Before sending the laptop to the Acer service I did not experienced any BSOD and I used it for like 2-3 weeks, I even did some gaming on it.
The first BSOD occurred last week and the laptop wasn't used until yesterday when it happened again and the last BSOD happened just earlier today.

I'm getting (seemingly) random BSOD's, and according to bluescreenview it's caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Not really sure how to fix this, and what it means.

It's a relatively fresh install of windows, built PC

Hey, my desktop computer keeps freezing here and there. I have a bad feeling it happens when working with my data HDD (not a system one). Some applications freeze and some not, I can restart, but it gets stuck when "Turning off" .. after few mins I get BSOD.

I've tried to boot up with driver Verifier and it freezes right after login screen .. no BSOD (within 30 mins).

The only thing I know from minidump is that it causes ntoskrnl.exe

Would someone help me to identify my problem?

Thanks in advance.

I recently upgraded my system to windows 8 and I keep having error messages saying: "driver state power failure" and something to do with minidump files. Can anyone please help? I have attached my files:

A:"driver state power failure"

MSINFO32 shows some STOP 0xA0 errors and some errors related to L1C63x64.sys (your networking drivers).

The first errors are suggestive of a possible hardware problem (most likely the hard drive). Please try these free diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics Please understand that this can also be a low-level driver problem, so post back if the tests don't find anything wrong.

The ATK64AMD.sys driver dates from 2006. It is the ATK0101 Hot Key driver (this is one of those low-level drivers that I mentioned earlier). Please uninstall the current version from your system and then install the latest, Win8 version from the system/mobo manufacturer's website.

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! :

I've been experiencing this BSOD on and off for a while now, and after doing some research came across a forum post suggesting to do a memtest. I've only had time to run it for 3 passes and will try for the full 8 later in the week when I have more time.

I thought I would start a thread to make sure there are no other underlying issues that could be the cause of the BSOD. Attached are the SF Files. Thanks!

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure 0x0000009f (ntoskrnl.exe)

Hi MSB117.

The dedicated GPU is totally out!!! Does a restart brings it back?

Yes, a stop 0x9F can do it, based on sleep/hibernation settings and it is often seen for Optimus Technology/Switchable graphics. It is not the first instance.

As the GPU is causing continuous issue over a time, I would suggest you to contract Dell/Alienware servicing center.

I recently got a laptop from Scan.co.uk, it's a custom build using the Clevo kit.
I have been having intermittent BSOD's with a Driver Power State Failure message at random times, I can't see a discernible pattern.

It can happen whether on the desktop, chrome or gaming but generally on the desktop during minimal use.
I can play games for around 8 hours without issue but sometimes I'll get the error straight after booting up or whilst shutting down or just doing work in chrome.

I've seen people with similar issues in this forum and have tried to make sure all my drivers are up to date but I'm missing something somewhere

Any help offered would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the Forum.

AVG is contributing to your BSOD. Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

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

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

A:BSOD: Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe 0x9F

Hi and welcome to the forums.

Seems like a core Kernel level issue.

Things to do:

Run System File Checker to verify/repair the integrity of system files.
Full tutorial here: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Uninstall COMODO Internet Security and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows
Update it and run a full scan.

Go to Start>Run
Type MSCONFIG and press Enter.
Click on Startup tab, now click on Disable All.
Click Apply and OK. Reboot the system.

In addition, run chkdsk /f to repair corrupt hard drive sectors.
Full tutorial here: Disk Check

If all of the above fails, as a test, I'd suggest you to Enable Driver Verifier to find out which driver/software is causing the BSOD. Once you enable it, expect some frequent BSODs. After 24 hrs, disable the Driver Verifier and re-upload the dump files for analysis.

Let us know if it works.

Been having the occasional blue screen every few hours for the past week or two now, I've been trying to pinpoint exactly which drivers are causing the issue or if it's something more serious. It's a custom built machine and around 18 months old now, so it's not completely unlikely that some of my parts are starting to wear out. (Not overclocking)

Also, I had a hal.dll error associated with the Driver Power State Failure as well, it just didn't fit in the title.

If anyone can give me a hand with this it'd be much appreciated. I've attached the SF files as requested.

so this has happened before and without knowing what to do I re-installed Windows. Today it happened again and I would really like to know what causes the Driver Power State Failure BSoD.
Upon installing Windows Updates I needed to restart my Computer. Shutting down took about 20 minutes resulting in BSoD. It reset asking me if I wanted to start Windows normally, which I did, and gladly it started up again.
(The last time when I had to re-install Windows it didn't start up. Startup Repair, System Restore etc. failed. The Problem according to Windows was caused by new Software or Hardware neither of which was installed/added by me.)
I don't know how to find out which driver(s) cause(s) the problem, so any help would be very much appreciated!
I've attached the zipped files according to BSoD posting instructions.

Hey. Looking over your drivers quickly, I'd update these:

Rt86win7 Rt86win7.sys Thu Feb 26 04:04:22 2009

Here is a link to the Realtek driver (if yours is : http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false

The netw5v32.sys is for a Wifi adapter, that you can visit Intel's website to locate a driver for.

igdkm32.sys is an Intel Graphics Kernal Mode driver. Intel's website will have that too.


Failing these three updates to fix the problem, I suggest uninstalling AVG, if only as a temporary test, to see if that then fixes the problem.

Hi there!
I've got the following problem:

Every time when I have a network connection with my other pc and shared some files, I get a BSOD when shutting down the pc. The weird thing is: From time to time I get different drivers that made the problem. The first one is tdx.sys and the second one is e1y62x64.sys which is the driver from my Intel 82567V-2 Gigabit Network Connection.
I still try to find out when the first failure and when the second one comes. My current assumption: When my WLAN-Stick is plugged in, i get tdx.sys, when it isn't plugged in I get e1x62x64.sys.

OS is Win7 64bit

So far I did:

- Updated both drivers (Intel and for my USB WLAN-Stick)
- run sfc /scannow no problems
- Installed http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967891 this hotfix.

I hope you can help me.

thanks in advance,

Hi -

Update your Intel Ethernet driver --> http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx

Make sure your wifi driver is updated as well.

If you have an Internet Security app installed - remove it using the product manufacturer's removal tool

The PC's been running fairly smoothly for close to a year now, and the last couple of days I've been getting my first few BSoDs. The computer usually shuts down normally, but now, it's been a little bit buggy when coming out of standby and and not shutting down properly. So, it happened most recently last night, after work, I woke it up again from standby, did a bit more homework and then went to shut it down, which it failed to do. It reset, loaded normally and after googling the issue, I shut it down with no problems then.

The most recent install was the mouse drivers, a Logitech Mx518, so I'm wondering if that causes issues with standby.

? OS - Vista Home Premium
? x64
? Vista x64 / XP x86 dual-boot
? OEM versions
? Age of system: 10 months
? Age of OS installation: 10 months
? CPU: Intel i7 920
? Video Card: Nvidia GTX260 Gold
? Mother Board: Gigabyte EX58 UD3R
? Power Supply - Seasonic PSR 650+ : 650 + W

I've attached the whole system report thing.

A:Driver Power State Failure BSoD on Shutdown


It does look like it could be your mouse drivers:

The power transition timed out waiting to synchronize with the Pnp subsystem
Pnp = Plug and Play

Latest Mx518 drivers: http://www.logitech.com/en-hk/428/42...s&bit=&osid=13

Laptop - HP HDX18
Vista home premium - 64-bit (SP2)
about 2 year old?

Basis of problem - laptop will not shutdown it waits on 'Windows is shutting down' for ages then bluescreens with a 'driver power state failure' message.

Further to this, maybe connected, my usb devices only work if they are plugged in at startup. If I unplug and re plug in a usb device, it will not work unless I reboot the system. Annoying, and maybe connected?

Thanks for any help

I am getting a BSOD sometimes when I shut down my computer. My computer has to be on and idle for a while (close to 4 hours) for this to happen. I never put my computer to sleep or hibernate. Can anyone do a minidump check to see what is going on? I tried to do this myself but there is issues with the symbols. (Which one should I use for x64 Windows 7)

Thank you!


It's your Creative driver messing things up.

Update this:


Also, you should update this from motherboard wesbite:

And these too:

Hello and thanks for letting me post on this awesome forum!!!!

I am fixing a family members computer and it has stumped me. I have tried everything that I can find online related to my problem outside of reinstalling but I think it could be a hardware (power or memory) issue from what i read and a reinstall wouldnt fix it.


I cannot trigger the BSoD of cue. Ive tried quite a bit, bringing it back from sleep, full load, no load, Skyrim, and different video cards.

I have been using Bluescreenviewer / myeventviewer to give me some incite but I couldn't find anything that would help my particular problem. So i present it to the people that know more then me, the online community. I followed the BSoD posting rules but let me know. Ill be checking back frequently.

Thanks again.

PS this computer is having raid issues. I get "Degraded NVIDIA mirror 931.51G" red flashing error for a couple seconds during boot. I dont know if this is related but BSoD's did not start at exactly the same time, but quite a bit of time after, I am told.

A few issues


The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Please visit this link: Asus tek computer inc. -support- drivers and download p7p55d le

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

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 12th 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 before).

My computer wont shutdown. Everytime i turn it off it will try to shutdown for 10-15 minutes and then followed by blue screen, uploaded the minidump file from the bluescreen as an attachment. Can someone take a look and help me?

A:Slow shutdown followed by BSOD, Driver Power State Failure

A stray crash dump is never enough. I wonder how you missed the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions .

Anyway, download and install Asmedia USB3.0 Controller Driver V1.16.10.0 for Windows XP/Vista/7 32bit & 64bit.(WHQL) from Motherboards - P9X79 PRO - ASUS and see how it goes. Let us know.

So for a while now whenever i shut down my computer it will hand on the shutting down screen (the one with the blue backgroound).  It will stay that way for like 20 minutes and then BSOD with DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE message. Usually I'm able to hard power off (holding the power button for 4 seconds to shut down manually) without the dos error screen thing coming up on turn on (the one that asks if you want to boot normally or in safe mode).  Looking at Who Crashed it says:This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x75BC0)
Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFFA80099CA060, 0xFFFFF80000B9C3D8, 0xFFFFFA800DB16640.  I have a bunch of minidump files but i don't know what to do with them or how to access them.
Oh! I almost forgot! This problem was happening a little while after my old hard drive went bad and i got a new one, so maybe I'm missing some drivers because i know i had to get some drivers for my usb 3.0 port.
I would really like to help with this so anything assistance would be most appreciated.

A:Driver Power State Failure shutdown hang BSOD

You can use Blue Screen View http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html or Debugging Tools for Windows
to view the minidump files. Those would be helpful in providing more details on what driver caused the blue screen.
Some general info on that bugcheck code is available here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff559329%28v=vs.85%29.aspx and here
