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.

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'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 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.

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:

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

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.

But...

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:

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.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum but i hope you can help with BSOD issues on my windows 7 Laptop.

I have a HP HDX18 Laptop that is about 8months old. I bought it with Vista home premium and upgraded to windows 7 home premium when it was released. As soon as i upgraded i started having blue screen of death problems (BSOD) problems. The laptop became unusable as it would crash intermittantly. It turned out to be my anti-virus software, Zone Alarm and so i swapped to Kaspersky.

About two months ago the machine started running slowly, locking up and crashing. I wasn't able to complete any tasks, there didn't seem to be any system restore points and it was completely unusable and so i decided i would recover to factory condition (Vista) and start again. I have done this and reloaded Windows 7 update and normal windows software. I also upgraded again to windows 7 ultimate so i would have networking capability as my other computers are XP pro and a Mac and the networking function in Win 7 home premium is worse than useless.

This all completed successfully last week and within a few days i am again having problems. I cannot shutdown my laptop, it will hang (saying 'shutting down') for about five minutes and then BSOD. I have attached the minidumps files using the SF Diagnostic Tool from this forum.

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.

I am using Dell Laptop ( Model N5050) with Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit OS. My laptop crashes often in the past 3 months and getting a blue screen with the error message DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
with some error code as 9F.

As suggested in the forum, I downloaded the DM log collector and it collected the information from my system.

Attaching the logs.

Please help me in fixing this BSOD. Thanks in Advance

Thanks,
Jeyaraj

A:BSOD - Driver Power state failure

Hi jeyaraj.

From the incomplete data you uploaded, we can say that the BSODs are caused by the wifi network adapter.

If you want further help on how to attempt to resolve the issue, you have to upload more data and info.

Click on the button below ....



It will download the DM log collector. Right click on the application and run as administrator. It will generate a .zip file on your desktop. Upload the .zip.

Hi,

? OS: Windows Vista SP2
? 64-bit
? No previous installed OS
? Age of system (hardware) - 2 years, 3 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 2 years, 3 months, never re-installed
? CPU - Don't know
? Video Card - nVidia - Display - NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS
? MotherBoard - Don't know

The problem is sometimes when I want to shut my computer down it takes AGES. After waiting about 20 minutes, it will just BSOD and be fine when I re-boot it. Sometimes, but not as often, after I turn on my computer back from sleep mode it will go very slow for about 20 minutes then just randomly BSOD.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!

Hi -

The BSOD dump shows OS corruption. The likely cause is unknown hardware failure.

Run memtest86+ --> http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

Hi,

usbccgp.sys blamed for most of the BSODs.

However looking closer the problem appears to be related to AiCharger.sys - an Asus program named AiCharger (may also be a part of the Asus AISuite).

Uninstall that software suite and see if problems persist.

Morning, all.

I could use a bit of help--I've been having a number of BSODs lately, and they always relate to a driver power state failure. Doing my own research has not really been as productive as I'd like.

Of note: this really only happens when I open the laptop back up after leaving it alone for some hours (when I wake up, and occasionally when I get back from work). The computer will run fine for about 5-10 minutes, and then I get a BSOD. I'm running Vista, SP2, on a Dell Inspiron 1525--haven't really had any major problems with this before.

I'm attaching a zip of the minidump and the msinfo32 file as I saw requested in another thread. Many thanks for any help!

Best

I performed a clean install of Win 8 x64 from Win 7 x86. I have had freezes or bsods at the Metro screen if the computer sits unattended for awhile or goes to sleep. I have updated the BIOS to the latest version, am running defaults and not overclocked. I think it is a driver issue but I cant seem to track it down. Any thoughts?

Hi folks. I'm getting the Driver Power State Failure blue screen in Windows 7 x64. Here are my vitals:

It's an HP dv6-3052nr laptop with a fingerprint scanner.

? Windows 7 x64 Home Premium OEM - I have not reinstalled the OS since I got it from HP, and I am ok with doing that if need be.
? This is a brand new laptop, it's only like 2 months old at most
? Intel Core i7 720QM, 6GB ram
? ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
? No idea what the motherboard or power supply is

This is your run of the mill new laptop. I use it for web browsing and communication, but I use it as a music recording computer, so I have some music programs installed. Also, I have a USB audio interface for music recording as well.

The blue screen has happened twice in the last two days, and once a few days ago. I have been getting a popup dialog that says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" on startup as well too; it happens after the blue screen error but it has also happened after I have closed the lid on the laptop. I think the cause is actually my fingerprint reader, because it has its own sleep/wake cycle and it doesn't always wake when I open my laptop up.

I have attached all requested files as per the BSOD posting instructions. I hope you guys can help me out! Thanks for everything.

It has been giving me the blue screen of death at least daily for over a week usually around 8 pm but it does like to mix things up and do it at other times. It was doing this same kind of thing this past march and I reformated which fixed the problem. However I would rather not do that again. I did a system restore back to the begining of the month but that didn't help.

Based on Blue screen viewer most of my prolems have been caused by ntoskrnl.exe. I have attached JPEGs of what it shows

Hello All,
I have been attempting to fix a win8 64bit issue on my dell xps600 for two weeks without success. I started the install with a clean install of win8 64bit and found that the BSOD started immediately. I have discovered that restarting the machine works fine and fast without any BSOD. However I get the BSOD when turning on the computer after shut down. I have nothing in device manager that is showing a problem and I've checked all but a few drivers that are old.

I really appreciate your time!

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

I have been using my new machine for a little over two weeks now. Twice I have come to sit down at the machine in the morning and the laptop display would correctly illuminate, while the external monitor would not. None of the windows on the screen were responsive to mouse clicks and the machine was not responsive to any of the keys on the keyboard. The mouse cursor would move.

Today I eventually got a BSOD:
DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
STOP 0x0000009F (xxx1, xxx2, xxx3, xxx4)

I preserved the minidump and captured sysinfo. They are attached.

Any suggestions or thoughts?

A:9F: Driver Power State Failure BSoD

The dump file blames monitor.sys (a part of Windows Vista) - so I would suspect your video sub-system at this point. I would start with updating any video drivers/video related software on your system.

I notice that you had Visual Studio crashes - are you running any custom programs?

I would suggest running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (Run as Adminstrator) Command Prompt also.

Here's a list of outdated drivers on the system. I would update them also (NOT from Windows Update):

Code:
AtiPcie.sys Mon Nov 06 11:59:54 2006 - AMD PCIE Filter Driver for ATI PCIE chipset - AMD PCIE Filter Driver - Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (I think that this is most likely the problem)
