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.

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.)

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 ^_^.

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 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.

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.

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.

I'm going to say that I figure it might have something to do with my Toshiba external hdd but I hope I can get a fix for this.

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.

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.

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 have a 13 days old win7 pro RTM x64 system. In the past two days I had
two BSODs of similar fashion:

The machine was running for several hours at that point, and suddenly the
blue screen pops up. I wasn't really pushing the system, just browsing.

The crash dump is like this in both cases:






Quote:
This was likely caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe

The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Likely the culprit is another
driver on your system which cannot be identified.

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.

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 hope someone can help been on this problem for a week now.

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.

Hope we can find a solution to the problem.

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:

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

Hello,

I am new to this forum, which I found online while searching for a fix to a BSOD I'm repeatedly having. I am hoping someone could help me out because it is getting extremely frustrating. The PC is used as a dedicated media center. So having the system go down multiple times during a movie is not fun at all.

I first noticed a problem with Win 7 about 10 or so days ago. The OS seemed to be slower than normal when logging on, but no issues other than that. Shortly thereafter when I would switch my TV input to my PC I was continually getting the login screen. I did a little research and it was suggested to change the Windows option to not restart on failure, which I did.

After making that change I noticed a repeated BSOD, with a Driver_Power_State_Failure message. The time varies on how long it will take before I get the crash, but it happens with certainty right now. Windows is also extremely slow logging in, and completely crashes after initial login frequently as well.

The only change that I can pinpoint is that I used a SATA to USB HDD converter to backup a hard drive. Well, attempted to backup. I cannot complete this due to system crashes. Also, I was having repeated system crashes with a portable HDD plugged in, and after unplugging it the system started on the next boot. This could be a coincidence, but I have not troubleshooted that further.

Just started happening within last 2 days.

Gateway P7811FX laptop (approx 2yrs old), full retail Win7 Pro x86 installed early June 2011. Never had a BSOD until last couple days. Both crashes occurred seemingly at random (not at startup).

Ran verifier as instructed here and OS crashed at startup. Able to turn off Driver Verifier in Safe Mode. Restarted normally to collect dump and perfmon files.

Hello,

I'm brand new to the forums. Usually I'm able to sort my own computer problems (with the help of good ol' Google). However I've been stuck with this for some time now. BSOD, Driver_power_state_failure. I can't really pin point a particular time this happens I'm afraid. I built this PC myself (my first one) about 7-8 months ago(?) and haven't really had any problems.

So far, I've reinstalled windows and updated all my drivers as recommended from many Google searches but I am still getting the same BSOD and frankly if I can't find the answer via Google I'm pretty much buggered . After reading the posting instructions I've used the diagnostic tool, so I'll attach the zip.

Any help or advice would be most welcome and appreciated.

Thanks very much guys.

Your Profile | Edit System Spec (left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the ?Other Info? block for Optical Reader,

Hello everyone,

My PC was running flawlessly until I woke it from sleep one day to find out that the USB keyboard and mouse and all other USB ports are not working. I figured ok I'll just restart. Well the restart hung at "Shutting Down..." for 5 minutes+ before I got a BSOD and the system eventually rebooted.

This happened a couple of times so I thought I should update all USB drivers and I did download the latest Intel drivers and installed them. This fixed the USB ports freeze after sleep wakeup, but if I use the PC after that for 5-10 minutes, I'll get a BSOD again which you'll see in the attached zip file.

In device manager, I was seeing an error with a driver called wirelesskeyboardfilter_01, but i researched that and found it had to do with HP drivers and I don't have any. I even followed a Microsoft article to fix wirelesskeyboardfilter_01 but the problem persisted.

I would like to know which driver is causing the BSOD so that I update it/fix it.

I did a memory test and it came back with no errors and in advanced power plan settings, USB selective suspend setting is Disabled.

I would really appreciate your help and I thank you in advance.

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. 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.

A:BSOD power state driver failure

FYI - I have severe eye problems. If I don't respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance.

Please provide this info for a more complete analysis: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

The memory dump points to your network drivers as the cause. In most cases updating these will fix the problem.

BUT, the antivirus/Internet Security application that you use can also cause this. Uninstalling it and installing a freshly downloaded copy can fix that.

Also, this may be caused by a hardware problem. But the diagnosis of that is done by trying the above things.

Another possibility is the Gigabyte EasyTune software - but I'm not 100% sure that that's involved in this situation. To test, uninstall it and see if it stops the BSOD's.

Finally, the memory dump (crash) seems to have occurred during the sleep/hibernate transition. As such you should also reinstall the chipset, storage, and video drivers for your system.

Good luck!

I can't seem to narrow down the culprit for this (beside me not knowing what I'm doing). Will someone please look at the dump files and provide a bit of advice.

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

The error seems to occur when the machine has been left on - go to a meeting and come back to BSOD upon power up. I cannot duplicate the failure.

Appreciate the help.

Hi bsodvictim.

Download and install Intel? PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 7 which works for your Intel? Centrino? Advanced-N 6230. It is too old and failing.

Hi, all I just clean installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on my Dell Vostro 1310 with 3gb ram, 1.8gHz Core2Duo, and 250gb hd. However I am getting BSOD stating driver power state failures, the computer will power up and work fine for about 20-mins then it will crash like clock work.
I do not have any exclamation marks in the device manager, I have update all my drivers with the latest and greatest Vista 32bit drivers from Dell as that is all they have right not, and I even updated the bios.
I tried to analyze the dump files myself but every time I attempt to install the debugging software it hangs at the progress bar until it becomes unresponsive then eventually crash the system. I have attached a dump file for review, if someone is willing to help me out.
Thanks

A:BSOD Driver power state failure

The OS becomes exasperated because the combination of the disk hardware and the drivers responsible for controlling it are taking too long to deal with a power state transition.

Try to update this driver...

iaStor Fri Jul 13 08:59:22 2007

... and get rid of this one:

SiWinAcc Tue Nov 02 06:21:31 2004

Ultimately, if the problem is not caused by a driver, the disk hardware itself may be suspect. Hopefully it's a driver!

In the short term, you may be able to work around the issue by disabling all power management - set everything to run at 100% constantly.

-----------------------------------
EDIT: BTW, the "do you have question marks in devmgmt.msc?" line of BSOD troubleshooting is a waste of time. The one thing you can pretty much rule out as the cause of a BSOD is the lack-of-driver for a device which hasn't been detected and enabled.
