BSOD Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe+153ca0

Q: BSOD Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe+153ca0

Hi!

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

Steps I've taken so far;

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.

Since you are using a laptop, I strongly suggest you to install the Graphics Drivers provided by the manufacturer. I have no idea where you would find drivers for a custom laptop . It would be great if you could point me towards the link ^_^.

So, before you install the older drivers, please remove your current set of Graphics Drivers using the Display Driver Uninstaller which can be downloaded from this **LINK**.

Once you are done removing the current set of drivers, please restart the system. After restarting the system, install the graphics drivers provided by the Manufacturer or from the Driver CD which you might have received with the system.
Let me know how it goes ^_^.

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.

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.

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.

Hello,

I've had 3 BSOD in the last few days, usually when my computer is asleep or when I am not actively using it. Malwarebytes anti-malware software indicates no issues, as does esot nod antivirus5.

Ran a free program (BlueScreenView v1.47 by nirsoft) which indicated a driver power state failure and/or a ntoskrnl.exe problem.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Driver_Power_State_Failure

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.

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,

Jay

I apologize in advance if this is a duplicate thread to a problem already solved previously.

Two months ago, I purchased this laptop (Alienware M17x R3) and was met with strange problems some time after owning it. An error code for memory failure, refusal to boot, BSOD with the error of DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Not sure what to do, I didn't do much of anything, except check my RAM chips for contact damage, and a swapping of positions was performed. So far, those particular error messages have not happened again, except for a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. These happen seemingly at random, but occur more frequently when the computer is under graphics stress, such as in a Starcraft 2 match.

I have, per the posting suggestions, attached relevant files.

Thanks.

two BSODs of similar fashion:

The machine was running for several hours at that point, and suddenly the

The crash dump is like this in both cases:

Hi all,

I was hoping to bring the 'big guns' on this forum to bear on my problem. My friend has an Asus UX32A notebook with Windows 8. To provide some back story (the meat of the problem is after this paragraph if you want to skip)...

It is brand new with hardly anything installed on it besides Norton 2013 and Office. It would freeze about 60 seconds after start up, for a good long while, and it seemed to get worse over time. I have done a LOT of things to it in the last two days - uninstalled Asus bloatware (which was also causing a black screen on startup problem), updated just about every driver and BIOS, disabled fast start up, disabled 'dynamictic' via cmd prompt, disabled all non-Windows services and then progressively enabled them to try to isolate a rogue one. I THINK I might have fixed it (in the end I left 7 services disabled - two Intel Management, Intel Dynamic application, Intel ME service, as well as Wireless PAN, Skype updater and Sony PC companion. I have no idea if it's one of these but the system seems not to freeze now and I have reached the end of my patience anyway). It might seem like too much but it was very difficult because e.g. to test the effect of one change I would have to restart, and the laptop would not restart because of the black screen issue, or would immediately freeze. It was very frustrating and I had to work from safe mode to start with, but now it seems to behave better.

from the research Ive done previously etc; I do believe the ntoskrnl.exe possibly leads to ram issue. I would test the ram by running memtest86+ from the following link: its best to let it run overnight if possible and to run it several times to make certain it shows accurate results as sometimes errors wont show up right away. Here is the link to that:

If you get any errors from the test; then its likely you have one or more bad ram sticks

It may be the cause of the crash while using firefox.

I have an external synth that conects via usb My problem is when i switch off the nord the usb ports crash and any new connection is not recognised until i restart my computer which when i do hangs on the shutdown page for about 10 minutes the i get bsod with error driver state failure or bad pool header.

I can start my computer then turn on and off the nord with no issues the problem only happens when i use it in cubase 7 as a midi track even if no midi signal is sent to the nord. The problem is when i turn off the nord by the power button the driver disconnects then if i try to reconnect the nord nothing happens in the device manager all usb that are still connected work but any new connection is not seen.

I have done a fresh install of windows 7 64bit updated all drivers for everything & windows updates.

I have tried disconnecting all usb devices and still the same problem. Im not over clocking or under clocking. I have tried a different usb lead, used various usb ports, external powered usb ports.

The drivers i have installed are nord a1 midi, clavia usb 3.02 driver & clavia compostite usb driver.The latest ones.

The units was working fine until about 2 weeks ago where i was able turn the unit on and off using cubase with no problems.

Hi,

I have a 2 week old HP Envy 14, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, 4GB Ram, and an ATI Radeon HD 5650 Graphics card.

Initially for the first few days the notebook worked well, no problems. This week, I encountered the dreaded BSOD. The notebook had trouble shutting down or restarting, taking 10-15 minutes or so. Upon rebooting, I get a BSOD with DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE message.

I also encountered the USB not recognizing anything that was connected to it after the computer started. If the mouse/ thumbdrive was connected before the computer booted up, it worked. If it was disconnected after booting up, and reconnected the mouse/ thumbdrive would not work. I do not get anything (no error messages or acknowledgement that anything was connected).

I checked the Device Manager, and there are no error messages.

Strange this is, these problems happen sporadically. Sometimes everything works well- USB working as it should, not issues restarting etc. Upon rebooting, the problem starts again.

I've tried updating the latest Win updates, drivers, HP bios etc but still no luck.

Please help. Thank you in advance.

Hi cabe and Welcome to SF!

First of all, hpdskflt.sys was mentioned in the crash dmp, it belongs to HP Mobile Data Protection System Disk Filter. I would download and install fresh copy of the driver, or might be uninstall it to see if it has anything to do with the crashes you've experienced.

For the mouse and thumbdrive, you might want to have their drivers installed properly, or perhaps you might want to try to have fresh re-install of USB driver by going to Device manager, under USB list you uninstall everything then restart your system. (To go to Device manager, right click on computer and choose manager)

In looking through your driver, I can see some out of date one:

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: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.

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.

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.

Intermittently I get this blue screen. The latest crash occurred as I was typing so i don't think it has anything to do with sleep mode as someone suggested.

I have not installed anything lately other than adobe photoshop and lightroom updates.

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

After having to do a complete system restore (automatic repair loop) my computer now comes up with the Driver Power State Failure BSOD when restarting, shutting down and turning on normally works fine.
I don't really want to try and navigate through all the windows updates as that requires a lot of restarting, and usually some sort of software conflict means it all gets put back anyway.

As far as I can remember, the 47015-01.dmp and 41125-01.dmp occurred 8 hours earlier than the file creation time, as my time zone was set to UTC-8, and i'm on GMT.

Thanks in advance.

Consider removing AVG as a test, if necessary.

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

Please navigate to c:\windows\minidump, zip up any minidumps you find and attach to your next post.

I'm not sure what the analysts do in cases like this but the BSOD.zip that you attached contains your perfmon report but its in German. Anything you can do about that from your end?

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.

There are a few .dmp files in the attachment, but the only one I am concerned about would be the most recent one and may be the one before, since they are both related to Driver Power State Failure.

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.

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.

Here are my details:

? Windows 7 Professional (6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601)
? 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

? ASUSTek Laptop
? N90SV


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