BSOD Waking from Sleep (power state driver failure)

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

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.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: 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.
5. Right-click "Lenovo EasyCamera" again and click "Uninstall". Click "Okay" in the dialog. Do not restart, because Windows automatically installs missing drivers when it restarts, and they might not be functional.
6. Run the installer that you downloaded in Step 1. If it starts a second installer when it's done, follow the directions to finish both procedures.
7. Restart.

Let me know if this fixes your problems. Another fix I'm trying right now is uninstalling the Lenovo YouCam program, uninstalling the driver, and moving the driver to a different directory so Windows can't find it. This is a more drastic fix, however, as it would leave you with a nonfunctioning camera. Let me know if you would like further details on how to do this.

Also, as a precaution, check to make sure Windows System Restore is on and has plenty of space allotted to it (about twice as much as is currently being used), so that it doesn't erase any restore points.

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

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.

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've started getting driver power state failures BSODs after my computer goes to sleep.

These started in the last couple of weeks. It's happened twice today already. When I first noticed these occurring, I used System Restore to undo my last installs, but it didn't help.

I'd greatly appreciate any help fixing this.

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.

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 :

I got an BSOD from sleep mode. Was off to go outside the summer heat today and when I came back... BSOD..

However the system managed to dump two files for me on BSOD.

Take a look and thanks for the help you give me :)



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.

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:
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 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!!

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.

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.


A:Driver Power State Failure on wake from sleep

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.

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'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P with Windows 8.1 64-bit. 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

I am using lenovo G580-20150.
I know this problem have been opened a tread but the problem i dont' think it's same so i woud like to ask for some solution after listening to my problem.
I have been user of windows 8 and 8.1 for quite some time.
everything works fine for me for the windows that i currently using , windows 8.1.
including i can put in sleep and wake it as usual.
but ! since past few days i notice that my computer getting weird when i enter sleep mode (for example closing the lid)
it crash... it bsod.

And it occur since the day after i installed somekind of VPN software and wiFI sharing that my friend gave me.
After that day, i can't put my computer into sleep. whenever i do that it keep crash.

at first , i thought lenovo energy management that cause the prob
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.
But i am very sure that the vpn and wifi sharing software cause the problem.

Because before this everything works fine until that two software comes to my computer. I really need someone that able to analysis the dmp file. TQ

I willing to learn and contribute if i were given the opportunity . tq

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 ^_^.

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,


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

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.

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

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
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:

Hey all, I'm new here, with a BSOD problem.

I have a laptop, HP dv6t Select Edition (LT070AV), I'm running Windows 7 x64 Home Premium, SP1 (came pre-installed). Just got the laptop late November, haven't reinstalled the OS, yet. The CPU is an Intel i5-2410M @ 2.3Ghz, and I have Intel HD Graphics (Integrated). The BSOD is DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE, and this is probably the third time this has happened to this computer. This happened when I told the laptop to go to sleep, and the screen turned off, but the light around the mousepad, and the power button light were still on. I left the house, and came back to a BSOD. The 'not going to sleep' thing has happened many more times, but I usually just lose patience after about 3 minutes and force-shutdown. Any help would be appreciated! The zipped "Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2" folder is attached.


I see that memory is being corrupted, but it's always the same 4 bits and it's always the same process. While I can't understand exactly what would cause it to corrupt those 4 bits exactly, I do have an idea that it might be your Broadcom Bluetooth driver. I see it's dated July 2010 so you'll want to go to the HP site and download any potential update for it that's present there. Note that it may be an item that's integrated into the motherboard, so if you can't find a bluetooth driver, look for chipset drivers instead.

I started to have a driver power state failure bsod error. I don't what triggers the error it seems random to me tho I have a hunch about it's being connected to internet usage or hdd, like when I use spotify or dropbox it's likely to crash.

Uploaded both dm log and sf diagnostic log

A:BSOD Driver power state failure,


It seems like Google Chrome is causing an issue I would uninstall that and see how that goes.
I am also seeing an error with your NVidia driver. The driver is dated Wed Jul 02 18:42:02 2014.
Try see if there is an update for your NVidia card.

I also noticed from dxdiag that your display is using the integrated Intel HD 4000 and not your GeForce GTX675m. Not to sure on this though, but that is what it seems like.

Are you using multiple displays?
Is your DVI or HDMI cable plugged into the Graphics card?
(Best to wait for additional input from someone else regarding the display)

I get a BSOD after working for a while and there seems to be nothing in common with the activities I am working on when it occurs. Computer is a HP Pavilion tx100 laptop with Vista Home Premium. I have attached the dump files from several occurrences. There were some additional files that for some reason I could not zip but are listed in a tex file included in the zip file. If you need them let me know and I'll try and send them

Thanks for any insight you can provide.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Thanks for the additonal info in the text file. These are the BSOD messages that are saved in your Event Viewer and will likely correspond to the dump files that I'm analyzing right now. The zip file contains 14 memory dump files from late May until very recently.

They are primarily STOP 0x9f errors with a single STOP 0xfe error.
The STOP 0x9f errors are a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error,
While the STOP 0xfe is a BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER error

So, the most likely cause here is a USB device that's having trouble with "suspend" operations. Do you have any USB devices attached to your laptop? Does this problem go away when they're unplugged?

Now we wait for the analysis to finish......

Phew! It's finally done!

So, the analysis shows the primary suspect as being ATSwpDrv.sys (dated from August of 2007) - which is a component of the AuthenTec Fingerprint Reader. It's usually hooked up internally to the USB bus, so this tends to confirm the initial suspicions.

The HP website doesn't show a TX100 laptop, but does show 36 different versions of the TX1000. Use this link to determine the exact model of your laptop: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...t_page=product (it's the numbers that number 1 points to) Let us know what the model number is.

Next, go to Start and type in "control system" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Let us know what it says under System...System Type

Hey Everyone,

If anyone could take a look at this and see why I got the BSOD for Driver Power State Failure, I would greatly appreciate it.

The second dump was in July of 2012 So really is of little importance at this point. However, I would suggest you update your Nvidia driver to the latest WHQL version I would also use this method to insure you get a clean install. NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

I would also, after doing the above like you to Open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, noti... Read more

Thanks for reading my post. I've been using my Gateway laptop for 3 years with relatively few problems. Since June or so, I've been seeing random blue screens, with no consistent series of events, or none that I can see. I'm attaching the sevensforum folder. Any help would be appreciated.

A:BSOD- driver power state failure

You reports were consistent. The cause seems to be this driver
O2sdx64.sys file descriptionProductname: O2Micro SD Reader Driver Description: O2Micro SD Reader Driver (AMD64) O2Micro
Go to the company website and update the driver or replace the software

I started getting a BSOD almost every night after installing a new video card. It's an AMD APU that I was running with on-board graphics, and I just put in a GeForce 8800GT. I can't figure out what driver is causing it, as far as I know I'm running the latest and most appropriate driver for the card. Attaching the minidump files.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Hi shhaggy,

The mini-dump exhibits 'ntsokrnl.exe' error that may indicate software issues. As per my experience, a fresh 'Windows reinstall' has been most useful. However, you may also try the following steps:

1. Reinstall 'Video Card' drivers
Click 'Start' and type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search programs & files' > Tap 'Enter' > Expand 'Display Adapters > Right click & uninstall 'GeForce 8800GT' (Confirm software install if prompted) > Follow through with the uninstall and restart the system > Click Drivers | GeForce to run 'Auto-detect GPU Utility' > Download and install the suggested driver > Restart system and check results

2. If the issue persists, run 'System File Checker tool' to see if that works: Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

3. If you still experience issues, try 'Factory Reset' (If a healthy recovery image is available)
If a healthy 'Recovery Image' is available (on the hard drive or on an external media), you may restore the system back to known-good settings. This step may not always work; you may give it a shot before doing a 'fresh Windows Reinstall'.

Note: 'Factory Image Restore/Operating System Reinstall' will lead to data-loss; please backup the data on an external media before attempting the restore options.

My laptop goes to BSOD what seems like several times a week and drives drives me nuts. We've had the laptop exactly two years now and it seems to be getting worse and more frequent. I've tried a completely fresh/clean install of Windows 7 64-bit, but no luck.

The problem happens about 70-80% of the time when the computer has gone to sleep and we're trying to wake it up using any button on the keyboard or the power button (doesn't matter which one). Less often, it will completely freeze up while we're browsing the internet (Chrome...we can switch between windows/desktop and scroll the cursor for a minute or so before the BSOD comes up).

The BSOD error comes up as: "Driver Power State Failure". Attached is the ZIP file as instructed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Neons97.

You need to update Fresco Logic xHCI (USB3) Controller FL1000 Series driver. No feasible update is available in ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download N53SV. So try the
Fresco Logic FL-1000/1009 USB 3.0 Controllers from Station-Drivers - Fresco Logic (drivers).

Also turn off USB selective suspend.
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

BTW, your RAM seems to be of odd volume.

Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 14.0 GB

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.
Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.

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.
