BSOD Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe

Q: BSOD Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe

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.

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.

Also free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.

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.

Thanks in advance.

I'm getting (seemingly) random BSOD's, and according to bluescreenview it's caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Not really sure how to fix this, and what it means.

It's a relatively fresh install of windows, built PC

AMD phenom II X4
ECS a750GM-M V7.0 motherboard
G Skill memory (4 GB)
Windows 7 Pro x64
if any of that is relevant.

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.

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.

Hello,

I've been having bsod's for a while ever since I disabled the Automatic Restart. 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. I've spent days researching online - I've tried to find if I had any drivers to update by going to my Device Manager but all "update driver" results I get are the same: they are up to date.

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.

Welcome to the Forum.

AVG is contributing to your BSOD. Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Reduce items at start-up: Startup Programs - Change

Perform a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable!:-

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.

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

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.

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:

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

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.

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.

Hi -

The bugcheck on the single dump file -

0x9f (0x4,,,) = driver is causing an inconstant power state - it is not able to sync with the PnP subsystem. The default NT Kernel named as probable cause.

I believe it to be a combination of NIC + Norton Internet Security.

Your D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme N PCIe Desktop Adapter driver must be updated - too old for Windows 7 -

Code:

jswpslwfx.sys Mon Apr 28 19:59:25 2008 (481664DD)

However, there are NO Windows 7 drivers listed for it and the April 2008 Vista driver appears to be the most recent available.

D-link Support DWA-556 --> http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=DWA-556&tab=3

If you cannot locate an updated driver, the device will need to be replaced.

Remove NIS/ N360 from your system -

Download the Norton Removal Tool (NRT); save to desktop. Boot into SAFEMODE - NO Networking. Tap F8 key during boot-up. Go to desktop, RIGHT-click on the NRT icon and select Run as Administrator. When complete - re-boot.

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.

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,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer

I don't even know why this started but it did a few weeks ago. Funny, I've never had a BSOD before even though I've owned 3 or 4 computers. Anyway, this one has occurred several times and it always seems so random. It kinda seems connected to Standby or Hibernate because it usually happens after one of those two things occurs. In fact with hibernate I can usually guess that right after it comes out of hibernate, a few minutes later I will be greeted with the wonderful BSOD.

Here is the minidump. Help would be very appreciated.

A:Driver Power State Failure BSOD

Only ran the last 5 memory dumps (the 6th one was from December, so I left it out).

A couple of KB articles that relate to the errors that you're getting and the sleep/hibernate functions:

KB 975599 Stop error when you put a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 to sleep or into hibernation, or when you restart the computer: "0x9F"
KB 977186 Error message when you try to resume a Windows 7-based or a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer from hibernation: "Stop 0x0000009F"

4 of the dump files blame atapi.sys (a Windows driver), while the 5th blames Apfiltr.sys (a component of your Alps touchpad drivers)

I'm not sure about the exact cause - but I would:
- check to see if the KB articles above apply to your system
- update your Alps touchpad drivers
- update your chipset/storage drivers
- update your graphics drivers

You can get the drivers from here: Select software and drivers HP Pavilion dv4-1225dx Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)
Please uninstall the old drivers first, then install the freshly downloaded one's.

Please post back if that doesn't stop the BSOD's.

The only hardware change i've made to the computer was a new wireless adapter from netgear model no.: WNA3100. I made sure to download the latest driver to support windows 8 but the bsod still occurs.

Heres a link to my minidump file if anyone can analyze it and tell me which driver is causing the problem it would be much appreciated.

Hi there, since last week (as far as I remember) I've been having this problem when I try to shutdown my PC.
It takes ages on the shutdown screen and then it crashes, prompting the BSOD.
I'm attaching the files requested made by the SF tool.

Hello Lugdunon.

I guess the Cam3820 PC camera device that you are using in not very much compatible with your system, and the driver is of 2008.

Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

Hi,
recently my laptop (Acer 5655G-9471) started showing me BSODs while Shutting down. After about 10-15 minutes of showing me "Shutting down...", it fails and shows me DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Not sure what the error code was but I'll write that down when it happens the next time. Attached is a SF Diagnostic dump.

After installing Windows 7 Ultimate (I had windows 7 RC before, and it ran fine), I've been getting a BSOD at random times that says:
DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
0x00000009f

Then it would automatically restart. When it starts up again, usually it says that my system shut down unexpectedly and it asks if I want to search for solutions, but it keeps happening. The only programs that I can think of which are running at most times that these BSOD's come up are google chrome, windows live messenger, explorer.exe and microsoft word. I would appreciate any kind of solution.

Hi -

The Microsoft MSDL SYM site used to obtain symbol files to identify Microsoft OS componants is unable to ID the NT Kernel in your Windows system. I don't know the reason for this.

Run the System File Checker/ Repair utility -

Hello all,

I recently 'inherited' a computer from a friend, and for the most part, it seems to run fine. It just has this one teeeeeeny issue - it's crash dumping and BSODing every time I shut it down. Up until today, the problem was limited to when I try shut it down; it did not occur any other time. For the first time today, it happened while I was using the computer.

It gives the Driver Power State Failure message but does not specify a driver. I've gone through, checked, and updated every driver possible in the device manager. I've run the memory diagnostic (3 times, twice with 2 passes and one time the more comprehensive scan). No problems found there. For some reason I can't get the hard drive self test to run (wondering if it's related to this issue or if it's because I reformatted the drive when I installed Windows 7?).

A:BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Hello Redcatt and welcome to TSF!

It appears that all of the attached dumps are 9F DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE bugchecks that do not point to a conclusive driver. No issue, let's get this sorted!

In the latest dump for example, as you can see here... there are four arguments:


Quote:




DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)
A driver is causing an inconsistent power state.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000003, A device object has been blocking an Irp for too long a time
Arg2: fffffa80020d1a20, Physical Device Object of the stack
Arg3: fffff80000b9c518, Functional Device Object of the stack
Arg4: fffffa80043d20d0, The blocked IRP




Using WinDbg, let's run an !irp on the 4th arguments address.

After running that, we NOW get a culprit driver as you can see here:


Quote:

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!

A:BSOD Driver power state failure

Are you overclocking - either the system or the video card? If so, please stop until we're finished troubleshooting.

Please check the KB articles about hibernation/sleep at this link: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000009F

There are 11 memory dumps
3 different BSOD errors
and 4 different causes blamed (all are hardware or Windows drivers)
This makes a hardware failure a possibility. In particular, you have 4 STOP 0x124 errors - which are usually either hardware or compatibility based. Please follow the instructions for troubleshooting STOP 0x124 errors here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

The P5 series of motherboards tends to have issues with RAM in Win7. Please don't use the Auto setting in the BIOS - rather, visit the website of the RAM manufacturer, get their recommended settings and use them in your BIOS.

Asus doesn't completely certify your motherboard for Win7 - so you may have issues that involve compatibility. Also, in this case, there is a driver present that is a known cause of BSOD's (ASACPI.sys dated from 2005). As there are no Win7 compatible drivers listed, you'll have to download the Vista 64 bit version and install it in Comaptibility mode. Again, this will be at your own risk as there's no guarantee of compatibility.

The timestamp on the driver that is causing the crash (nvm62x64.sys) is Sat Oct 18 10:01:06 2008 which is far to old for a Windows 7 system. Try updating the drivers, you should find them here (look for your motherboard chipset): http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk
