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.)

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

So I have a pirated windows 8.1 which I have been using for more than a year now. Since the past one week my drivers ( especially the internet driver) keeps crashing and stops detecting any networks. Upon an attempted restart I get the Bsod for which I have attached the files ( All the minidumps.) I run a Dell 5521 R and have updated the drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled them too. Kindly help ASAP as I require my wifi urgently tomorrow.
Note: After restart the drivers get refreshed automatically and start working for sometime. And then the same issue. Please help.VATSAL-Tue_02_09_2016_101910_61.zip

Hi to all!
I'm r2. I'm having a problem on my system:
Processor: Intel core i7 875k, 9months
Motherboard: Maximus III gene, 4months
Memory: 8gb Ripjaws 1600mhz, 1.5year
Videocard: HD4870, 1.5year
Power supply: ocz sxsII 600w, 4months
Hard drive: WD 500gb, 1.5year

OS: Windows 7 x64
Observation:
Clean install OS 4 times. Shared the same symptoms
- it occurs when an application does not respond, but I can move through windows normally without lag. Then this application cannot be terminated under windows task manager. Since this application did not respond, I decided to shut it down. "logging off" for about 2-3minutes then "shutting down" for about 10-12minutes then BSOD appears stating "POWER DRIVER STATE FAILURE". It restarts automatically, freezes on windows log on screen (because I have to input password). Both mouse and keyboard does not move, even if reconnected. Rebooting the system on 'safe mode' does the trick on going inside windows, the event viewer shows: a bunch of 'network list service' and smb redirector shows at very short interval.

Even at 4th install of OS(delete drive, format to a new drive then install windows 7), error is still there.
It's been 2 weeks now, and it's very frustrating knowing that the error would show up.

thanks,
r2

Hi,

I an getting BSOD randomly and it is driving me a little loopy.

I was getting a Internal power failure on the machine sleeping but preventing hibernation solved that. I create a task to set the power plan to my preferred plan (never sleeps) and that has solved that issue.

Now I am getting this Driver Power State Failure about 30 minutes after I turn the machine on. Full details in attached Zip File. I tried to uninstall SP1 at one point, but it said it could not uninstall everything.

I have attached the files has requested.

I am having varying instances of Driver Power State failures as indicated by the BSOD This only happens when using the internet and I cant figure out which file is causing the shutdown.

Also interesting: I use my computer for home recording with an M-Audio interface, Blue Snowball Microphone, and Alesis M1Active 320USB studio monitors.
While recording or playing back in the Studio SONAR7, the program seems to just randomly start working at half speed and getting all jumpy. I will stop it rewind a bit and start it again and it is fine for a bit and then will start doing it again. Any Ideas on this? could this be linked to the same problem that is giving me the BSOD?

The Skinny

I found this forum from this thread with a similar prob. What's happening right now is,

Main prob:

1. The system can become slow after 15 mins, then the Shutting Down screen takes forever, when I pressed the ON button, I get the BSOD.

Minor issues

2. I'm always starting in 'Test Mode' since this began
3. Sometimes, the usb attached vodafone thumb-modem just stops working/undetected and I have to reinstall it, a result of 'Test Mode'?
4. I just got a Trackman Marble, can the SetPoint driver be the culprit?

Details:


Quote:




Last week, I faced some BSOD probs, but solved it by uninstalling the KB973879 Microsoft Update.

Things were relatively crash-free after that.

Yesterday I went to look at the downloaded but uninstalled MS Updates (horribly BAD idea ) and picked some updates while unticking 2 of those KB#### updates.

At restart, the ShutDown process went (screen is black, comp still on) on for an absurdly long time... I can't make it reboot with the ON button, in the end after 20 minutes I just removed the battery.




Argh!! Why??

A:BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Perfmon reports an issue with a PS2 keyboard. If you're using a USB keyboard, it's safe to ignore this message.

You have 2 different wired network controllers (Realtek and Marvell). Why is this? Why isn't the Marvell device either removed from your system or disabled in the BIOS?

You have a Realtek RTL8187 Wireless 802.11b/g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter
Win7 doesn't like these devices, and will Blue Screen in a heartbeat if you use older drivers. Here's my rant on these devices:

Quote:




I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.




MSINFO32 points to disk issues and cites your jraid.sys (RAID) drivers (as does both memory dumps). Please:
- run hardware diagnostics on all hard drives: HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.
- update the RAID drivers (if they are the most current version - uninstall them, then install a fresh copy).

A:BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Hi -

I count 28 BSODs that you have had since installing Windows 7 RC on August 3, 2009. There were only 8 dumps in the zip file. I assume the other 20 were removed as a space saving measure.

The "mini" kernel dumps are by far some of the largest that I have seen -- especially for a Windows 7 x64 system. Each weighs in at just around 800k. Average is ~ 275k.

The bugcheck on the dumps is as your thread title suggests = 0x9f

0x9f (0x3,,,) = a device is blocking an IRP longer than permitted causing a driver to be in an "inconsistent state of power". The device in question is hogging the IRP, other devices cannot access it that need to; a stalemate ensues with no way out - and thus the BSOD. Either way, you lose.

IRP = I/O Request Packet

More on IRPs ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I/O_request_packets

The non-Microsoft driver that shows up the most in the dumps as a probable cause of the BSODs is your NIC Intel Ethernet driver. I know it is the most recent one available -

Code:

e1e6232e.sys Fri Jun 05 12:08:41 2009 (4A296D39)

This driver has shown up in BSODs of others. I'm not sure of the product it belongs to. I would uninstall the relating product at least for now -

I get a BSOD after working for a while and there seems to be nothing in common with the activities I am working on when it occurs. Computer is a HP Pavilion tx100 laptop with Vista Home Premium. I have attached the dump files from several occurrences. There were some additional files that for some reason I could not zip but are listed in a tex file included in the zip file. If you need them let me know and I'll try and send them

Thanks for any insight you can provide.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Thanks for the additonal info in the text file. These are the BSOD messages that are saved in your Event Viewer and will likely correspond to the dump files that I'm analyzing right now. The zip file contains 14 memory dump files from late May until very recently.

They are primarily STOP 0x9f errors with a single STOP 0xfe error.
The STOP 0x9f errors are a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error,
While the STOP 0xfe is a BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER error

So, the most likely cause here is a USB device that's having trouble with "suspend" operations. Do you have any USB devices attached to your laptop? Does this problem go away when they're unplugged?

Now we wait for the analysis to finish......

Phew! It's finally done!

So, the analysis shows the primary suspect as being ATSwpDrv.sys (dated from August of 2007) - which is a component of the AuthenTec Fingerprint Reader. It's usually hooked up internally to the USB bus, so this tends to confirm the initial suspicions.

The HP website doesn't show a TX100 laptop, but does show 36 different versions of the TX1000. Use this link to determine the exact model of your laptop: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...t_page=product (it's the numbers that number 1 points to) Let us know what the model number is.

Next, go to Start and type in "control system" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Let us know what it says under System...System Type

Armed with that information, we can visit this site an... Read more

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.

Here's the link to the page for the driver: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...ge=en-us&os=30

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!

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.

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.

I'm getting this error when the system goes to a power down state I think. If I leave it on over night next morning I have the BSOD with this error. Not sure what to do about it. I uploaded the info files.

A:BSOD Driver power state failure

Your crashes are being caused by McAfee. It has a 2008 driver attached to it. You should update to a newer version of McAfee, and if you already have, the old version may not have been completely removed. Uninstall, download a fresh copy of the most up to date installer for McAfee, and re-install McAfee to see if that resolves the crashes.

How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe)


If the above does not work, remove McAfee completely using MCPR and replace it with either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.


Also, update the following driver:
Code:
fffff880`04784000 fffff880`047b6000 Rt64win7 Rt64win7.sys Thu Feb 26 02:04:13 2009 (49A65B0D)
It is your LAN driver, and you can find the update through HP Support for your model:

Hi all, I'm on Win 7 RTM 64 bit and have been getting driver power state failure BSoDs when trying to go into standby mode. It doesn't always BSod, sometimes it actually goes int standby, but when it fails, the monitor turns off, the fans slow down, but the computer remains on for about 5 minutes until it eventually gives a BSod. I upgraded from Vista Ultimate 64 bit about a week ago and my other problems have been solved, but the solution to this BSoD still eludes me.
I've updated all my drivers to their newest releases, made sure there are no bad drivers in device manager, and checked for unsigned drivers. The only unsigned driver I have installed is the one I forced to install, XBCD.
Attached is my minidump in zip from.
Thanks in advance.

A:Driver Power State Failure BSoD

A quick look seems to blame your Marvell Yukon drivers (yk62x64.sys) - although the Realtek networking driver (RTKVHD64.sys) on your system are very old also (Oct 07).

I would suggest downloading fresh copies of the above drivers from the Marvell and Realtek websites. Then uninstall the current one's and install the new one's.

I'm unsure about the forcing of the XBCD driver - and would recommend uninstalling it until this problem is resolved.

If you still run into problems then I'd first suspect a hardware issue with the network card - although it's still possible for other drivers/programs to affect this. If you're still getting errors after updating the drivers - then please provide the information requested in this post: http://www.techsupportforum.com/1871981-post2.html

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)

Came back to a computer that won't shut down, restart or sleep properly. When it does it takes several minutes and at one time gave me the titular BSOD. Everything works fine in Safe Mode (go figure), so I've got a rogue driver in here and I can't for the life of me figure out which one's causing the trouble.

Other symptoms are slow startup (screen starts black for up to a minute after the welcome screen) and Device Manager hangs whenever I try to change (enable/disable, uninstall) drivers. I picked up a hotfix (KB977307) to alleviate the shut down/sleep symptoms but I'd like a little more information before I install it.

Aside from those symptoms there's no major hit to running performance. It looks like I can still use my main comp but I have to rely on hard power downs and jump through safe mode to turn on the computer. The device manager issue is such because I often have to reset my network adapter (Unid network kills my internet sometimes, working to fix that). This will become more of a problem when the next rounds of updates come knocking though.

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.

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.

(And if this may help I tell you I had updated atleast one or the other thing before shutting it down...either through HP Support Assistant or Windows update.

Last night i ran Windows Update and tried to turn off my pc but since updates were being installed it said Windows will shut down once the updates are installed automatically...so i went to sleep only to find in the morning a BSOD. It was stuck on it again i had to turn off my pc by holding power button and then windows refused to boot beyond the Windows 7 logo black screen. But after a couple of retries it started.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

The crash indicates possible Windows corruption or memory problems. The crash bugcheck itself indicates a driver issue.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.
Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

Whenever my Nvidia geforce GTX 460m is enabled in Device Manager the laptop crashes. Sometimes it will crash after a minute, sometimes a few hours. I'm beginning to think it's a hardware problem but I'm not sure. The requested zip file is attached.

Hello,

About 50% of the time that I shut down my PC, it freezes on the message "Shutting down" and after a while gives me a BSOD. I also get a BSOD every now and then when I'm browsing the web. I've ran the SF diagnostic tool and will post the results here.

I also came across the following similar looking article:

Driver power State Failure

I would be extremely grateful if somebody could shed some light on the situation, I strongly believe that this is one of the main causes of my insomnia, after bankruptcy and alcoholism of course.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please upload your msinfo32.nfo file. To get this: Start Menu -> Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box -> When it opens, go to File, Save -> Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember -> Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info -> Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder -> Upload the .zip file here.

The BSOD seems to be cause by HotSpot shield driver and Symantec/Norton seems to be contributing to it. (FYI, Norton is a frequent cause of BSOD-s.) I would suggest you to uninstall Norton and see if the problem persists, replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.

Malwarebytes - The Free version

Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Hi Everyone,

Got a BSOD yesterday and want to see if you guys could help me isolate the issues. This is my first BSOD in about a week.

Actually, things used to be alot worse like a week ago, I was getting random BSODs due to the installation of a Belking Wireless Adapter. I thought I had everything resolved by uninstalling the drivers and then reinstalling under windows XP because I haven't had a BSOD since then.

Anyways, I am running Windows 7 and would appreciate any help.

Thank you,
Abad
