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: Windows 7 Pro: Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe 0x9F

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:

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

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

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 have a HP8530P with Windows 7 professional 32bit that regularly gives a BSOD.
When I analyze the dump file it says Driver Power State Failure and that something is wrong with the usbhub.sys.

I reinstalled the chipset drivers and all other drivers to be on the safe side. But it did not help.
I then reinstalled Windows but the problem just came back.

Does anyone have an idea to what could be the cause?

I put the dump file in this zip file (The SF diagnostic tool mentioned here does not work on my computer)

A:HP8530p Regular BSOD 0x9f Driver Power State Failure

Do you have a card reader or card reader plus USB network adapter connected there?

The dump showed a symbol error there, so I could not see it properly, but I can say you that if what I am saying id true, check the card, what it contains.

Update the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver: from Ethernet NIC Driver Downloads | Broadcom.

Disable USB selective suspense: USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

Check for any rootkit: Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

If it is a card reader only, remove it. If it is a card reader plus network adapter, remove the memory chip from it.

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...

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.

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

sptd.sys is the most well known causes of a crash in windows 7. There are some technical reason behind it is that much crash prone. It is a paer of Daemon tools, so better you uninstall Daemon Tools.

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.

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

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 do not know how to proceed, and would love some advice!

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

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

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

Hi MSB117.

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

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

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

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.

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

Just a question, when the keyboard and mouse was inactive and you got the crash, was the Cyberlink editing program in use? The event log says so, and actually that program failed there.

Hello,

When I start up my computer I am not always able to enter windows right after I turn on the power button unless I restart it. That is strange and also new. However there are times when I am in fact able to enter Windows briefly with out doing this.

On the occasions that I am able one of two things afflicts me. Either, my storage hard drive is not booted and does not even appear in my computer which usually requires a reboot or two to rectify - or, My pc takes exceptionally long to load the desktop or some other function of the gui and then shows me the bsod with the error Driver_Power_State_Failure.

But it gets worse I have second storage hard drive which very often has what one could call hard drive failure in that it randomly dismounts, is not recognised or gives error messages. I have reached my threshold of tolerance and would like to know if you good people at windows 8 forums who have saved me before when you were still windows 7 forums can do so again.

I have attached my dump files.

Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having.

Hi guys, my name is Filippo.
I am experiencing a severe problem with my laptop, a pretty new ASUS S550CB. It started two weeks ago and I really cannot figure out what is the cause. The problem is that the laptop is no longer unable to wake up from sleep or hybernation modes. If it goes to sleep, after it wakes up it is able to show the login screen (sometimes) but when you're typing the password it freezes and after a while, a blue screen saying that the computer stopped working due to a Driver Power State Failure is shown. A minidump is saved and the computer is restarted. The whole operation takes a looong time. I also notice that boot times are much longer even when waking up from power off state.
 
In the Event Log [System] I see a critical Kernel-Power Event:

Ok so when shutting down my computer it seems to hang at shutting down for ages (time changes) and then I get a BSOD and it says DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE. It also does this randomly when not shutting down.

I have a Dell XPS, Core i7 (8x 2.67ghz), 8Gigs of RAm, running a legal copy of Windows 7 Home Edition (64bit).

Its fully updated and have previously done a reinstall.

Cant really think what else to do. Oh and when listen to music (most noticable) the sound cuts out and makes horible noises for a half second then plays fine and then does it again later. It seems to only do this after the computer has been on a while though.

I have attached minidumps bellow.

Anything would be helpfull.

Hello,

I am getting periodic BSOD issues that MIGHT be occurring when the system is transferring from the Intel(r) HD 4000 GPU to the GTX 880M Nvida card. The Nvidia card is brand new. I've been trying to test it via GPU-Z and FurMark. I ran it for an hour and it never crashed, but was running very hot -92-93C. Not really sure how to even test the Intel(R) HD 4000 GPU. Nothing is overclocked or has ever been overclocked.

I re-installed windows 8.1 but the problem persists.

Hey ya'll im having a on-board networking problem. hoping anybody can help!

so, i went out of town Friday morning and got back yesterday. my computer was off all weekend. I have a linksys router and have 3 computers(including mine) connected to it through out my house. I turned my computer on for the first time last night and started up just fine, but no internet nor did the other computer in my house. i rebooted the router and modem and got the other computers connected. by this point my computer still has no access to the internet. so i try a few little things aside from reinstalling the chipset drivers. no success. so as a last resort I reinstall the driver and proceeded to get it to work. again no success.

computer specs are:
Asus P5N-e SLI nforce 650li
C2D e4600 @2.6 -- OC'd to 3.21
4gigs OCZ ram OC'd
8800GT OC'd

750 psu
4 Western Digital hard drives(500 sata,160 sata,160 IDE,120 sata) no RAID
xf-i pci sound card

this is what happening now. after the reinstall it hangs on shutdown or rebooting the OS. my network controller appear and disappears in the Network Connections menu. re- and un- installed it in safe mode a few times. all and all no success.

here the Windbg report i have on the BOSD minidump i got.

Hi,

Obvious cause - nvm62x64.sys is mentioned in all the dumps.


Code:
nvm62x64.sys Sat Oct 18 10:01:06 2008 (48F8FD12)
And it is out of date.

It is the NVidia Networking driver - part of the nForce chipset driver package.

Hello!

I've only recently purchased a computer that is just over a month old. Mostly during games I have had, at random, a BSOD. This also sometimes happens when I turn the computer on. It may sometimes go to a BSOD, restart, then I'll be up and running. I've attached the files necessary to analyse what the problem is. Some of the error files I've managed to discover (according to windows) include:

ntoskrnl.exe
hal.dll

My computer specs & details:

? OS - Windows 8, 64bit
? Original OS - Windows 8
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? I purchased my OS from the retailer and had them install it.
? Age of the system - 1 month
? Age of OS installation -1 month

? CPU - AMD FX-8350
? GPU - HIS Radeon HD 7870 2GB
? MOBO - asus m5a99fx PRO R2.0
? Power Supply - Thermaltake/750W



I would be tremendously happy with a solution to this problem!


Thanks.

We can see an atikmdag.sys call and then it goes RIGHT into the bugcheck. That's how these specific bugchecks work. atikmdag.sys is one of the kernel-mode drivers within the suite. It monitors the functionality of other drivers within the suite among other things.

Ensure you have the latest video card drivers. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.

My computer crashed while Win10 was automatically updating. Some strange behavior I noticed was that my sound card (UX2) stopped working when I plug it in (they have shitty drivers, they do this with all computers from time to time). When I restarted my PC, it automatically started updating Windows 10 (hate the updates). Then BSOD, power state failure. I cannot tell anything from the image, how can I tell if it was really my soundcard driver which was causing the issue?

I noticed at first that some of your drivers aren't updated. Make sure that you go to the Lenovo website and download and install updates for all your drivers, including your BIOS. There may be a bug in one of them that's preventing power transition.

Just had a random BSOD out of nowhere. Haven't had a BSOD on this system in over a year. Been running Windows 7 x64 on a Intel SSD since this time last year without any issues.

Windows action centre is telling me that " PX Engine" caused the crash and this has happened once before (I don't remember a BSOD though).

A bit of Googling shows that this is linked to Roxio software for DVD devices and that issues are common with this.. I don't have anything of the sort on my PC though.

ED: Looked in the info of the Windows Action Centre for the error and it seems that it did indeed cause a BSOD back on the 8th of August, I actually had a photo of the BSOD on the same date on my PC as well to confirm. So this has happened before.

OS - Windows 7 x64? As above
? Full retail version
? Age of system (hardware) - 3 years (oldest parts)
? Age of OS installation - 1 year
Hardware:
? INTEL CORE 2 DUO E8400

Hi guys! I'm new to these forums and I was hoping you guys could help me fix this problem with my computer that I've had with it ever since I got it. I bought a Gateway FX6801-03 Gaming computer last October and ever since I got it I've never had a successful shutdown with the computer. The computer would just hang on Windows is shutting down, if I let the computer sit on that screen it would then go to a BSOD saying Driver Power State Failure. Ever since I got this computer I've been getting USB issues as well. The only way I can plug a USB device into the computer is if I restart the computer first. It seems the computer doesn't want to accept any new USB devices after it's been on for a while. Anyways I'm not sure if any of this tie together but I'm afraid it might be a hardware problem, and Gateway is asking me to ship my entire computer to them all the way out in Texas. The computer is a 40 pound computer so I really don't want to ship this out to them unless I'm sure I can't fix it myself. I hope I did the memory dump correctly to help you guys find the BSOD problem. If you guys need me to do any other types of dumps, or answer any questions I'll be glad and quick to answer. Thanks guys.

A:Windows 7 64 BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Hi,

The USB device problems sound like a hardware fault. Personally I would ship it back to Gateway now while the warranty is still valid.

Software problems that I can see:

1. Intel Drivers.

A few of your Intel Drivers (storage/networking) are out of date.

Run the update utility from here - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx

2. Your NVIDIA Graphics drivers could do with an update - http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Hi,

few days ago, while Windows 8.1 was starting it was appeared a BSOD with error message - DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE - and then Windows was restarted.
In the Event Register I found - Event 41; Kernel-Power.

What must I do?

Thanks

A:Windows 8.1 - BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Mostly the BSOD will appear due to serious system malfunction…
System malfunction could be caused by some incompatible driver or preinstalled software…
Antivirus / antispware or security programs can also cause these issues.

Be sure to check in Windows Updates to see if a driver was updated prior to this occurring.
But also this problem could also be caused by a loose card or cable and even a weak power supply.

As you see, it’s difficult to say why the BSOD appears but from my point of few there is a easy way to troubleshoot the problem… recovery the notebook back to factory settings… if BSOD would appear using fresh recovered notebook, then hardware problem could be the reason for this malfunction.
