Q: Driver Power State Failure; ntoskrnl.exe; ntkrnlmp.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.

But...

I have had several hang-during-reboots today, forcing me to kill the laptop with the power button. WhoCrashed reported that in all instances it was two processes:

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x53F46)

Intel HD Graphics 4000
Intel i5 3317U CPU

No peripherals plugged in whatsoever
I ran Driver Reviver and it claimed some chipset drivers were out of date but I don't quite trust it as I have updated the chipset from Asus's website, and when trying to update drivers via device manager it said all were up to date. It also recommended to install an Intel Display Audio driver that was meant only for 32-bit versions of Windows 7, hmm...

I am 'OK with computers' but analysing dump files is beyond me. Could anyone please cast an eye and let me know what caused these crashes? If it is some hardware issue (device power state failure??) it is still in warranty and I need to know what to tell Asus.

Many thanks!

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.)

Check out the forum thread here "ntoskrnl.exe" BSOD - Windows 7 Help Forums

Since it is new or relatively new a complete reinstall using the ASUS recovery is recommended. That I saw on several searches.

Been having the occasional blue screen every few hours for the past week or two now, I've been trying to pinpoint exactly which drivers are causing the issue or if it's something more serious. It's a custom built machine and around 18 months old now, so it's not completely unlikely that some of my parts are starting to wear out. (Not overclocking)

Also, I had a hal.dll error associated with the Driver Power State Failure as well, it just didn't fit in the title.

If anyone can give me a hand with this it'd be much appreciated. I've attached the SF files as requested.

I 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:

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.

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.

Hello, my computer has crash 4 times within the past two hours. I believe it has something to do with the Elgato Game Capture HD software I installed on the computer, since it seemed to only happen when I was either using it, or trying to uninstall it. Currently, I've uninstalled it, and no BSOD so far. I have updated my drivers and performed any windows updates available. Please help.

Hello guys,
I tried resolving this issue by myself, but I can't figure it out. I'm getting BSOD on my new laptop. The laptop is brand new, I bought it about one month ago. It came with the default linux OS installed by the manufacturer, but I did a format and I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Machine specs:
Acer Aspire V3-771G 736b4G75Maii
CPU: Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz
GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 640M 2GB DDR3 memory
RAM: 1x 4GB DDR3
HDD: 750 GB Toshiba

I got BSOD 3 times, every time I was browsing the internet using Mozilla Firefox. First couple of times I was on facebook checking some pictures and the 3rd time I was on forums looking for a solution to this problem. The BSOD happened when the laptop was on high performance settings, but i can't remember if it was plugged in or not.

As i said, the laptop is 1 month old, but it came with a broken speaker so it was sent to the service where they replaced the entire front cover. They said the reason is that the speakers are glued to the front cover so it was not possible to replace only the speakers. Before sending the laptop to the Acer service I did not experienced any BSOD and I used it for like 2-3 weeks, I even did some gaming on it.
The first BSOD occurred last week and the laptop wasn't used until yesterday when it happened again and the last BSOD happened just earlier today.

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!:-

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.

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:

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.

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

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 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,

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

I have an external synth that conects via usb My problem is when i switch off the nord the usb ports crash and any new connection is not recognised until i restart my computer which when i do hangs on the shutdown page for about 10 minutes the i get bsod with error driver state failure or bad pool header.

I can start my computer then turn on and off the nord with no issues the problem only happens when i use it in cubase 7 as a midi track even if no midi signal is sent to the nord. The problem is when i turn off the nord by the power button the driver disconnects then if i try to reconnect the nord nothing happens in the device manager all usb that are still connected work but any new connection is not seen.

I have done a fresh install of windows 7 64bit updated all drivers for everything & windows updates.

I have tried disconnecting all usb devices and still the same problem. Im not over clocking or under clocking. I have tried a different usb lead, used various usb ports, external powered usb ports.

The drivers i have installed are nord a1 midi, clavia usb 3.02 driver & clavia compostite usb driver.The latest ones.

The units was working fine until about 2 weeks ago where i was able turn the unit on and off using cubase with no problems.

Hope we can find a solution to the problem.

Hi,

I have a 2 week old HP Envy 14, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, 4GB Ram, and an ATI Radeon HD 5650 Graphics card.

Initially for the first few days the notebook worked well, no problems. This week, I encountered the dreaded BSOD. The notebook had trouble shutting down or restarting, taking 10-15 minutes or so. Upon rebooting, I get a BSOD with DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE message.

I also encountered the USB not recognizing anything that was connected to it after the computer started. If the mouse/ thumbdrive was connected before the computer booted up, it worked. If it was disconnected after booting up, and reconnected the mouse/ thumbdrive would not work. I do not get anything (no error messages or acknowledgement that anything was connected).

I checked the Device Manager, and there are no error messages.

Strange this is, these problems happen sporadically. Sometimes everything works well- USB working as it should, not issues restarting etc. Upon rebooting, the problem starts again.

I've tried updating the latest Win updates, drivers, HP bios etc but still no luck.

Please help. Thank you in advance.

Hi cabe and Welcome to SF!

First of all, hpdskflt.sys was mentioned in the crash dmp, it belongs to HP Mobile Data Protection System Disk Filter. I would download and install fresh copy of the driver, or might be uninstall it to see if it has anything to do with the crashes you've experienced.

For the mouse and thumbdrive, you might want to have their drivers installed properly, or perhaps you might want to try to have fresh re-install of USB driver by going to Device manager, under USB list you uninstall everything then restart your system. (To go to Device manager, right click on computer and choose manager)

In looking through your driver, I can see some out of date one:

Hi,

I've been browsing the site and the internet for a sollution to my problem, but can't seem te find it. There are similar postings, but they're always just a little different. So that's why i posted the new thread.

Since a couple of days i've been experiencing troubles shutting down my PC and using my USB ports. It started when i tried to log onto my work from home. It failed and the IT guy from work told me to reinstall citrix reciever. So I did and I was able to work from home. After finishing and logging out (to get back to my own PC) I found that my USB portst didn't work anymore. I tried rebooting, but af 10 minutes of "shutting down" I got a blue screen: Driver Power State Failure with code 1000009f.

I did the following:
- tried system restore - it failed with different time stamps
- update drivers - they were all up to date the system said
- Malware Bytes, CC Cleaner, MS Essentials, Hitman pro - Did them all, had some minor stuff, fixed that, problem remained.
- SFC/scannow - no problems
- Memory check - no problems

As it is now, the only update I have left is the update to WIN10. However it has tried and failed during a few of the reboots, so that doesn't seem to be and option.

After try all different kinds of things from a lot of posts I decided to refresh my windows install. Did a lot of updating and still the problem remains. Although I now found out that USB devices that are plugged in upon startup work. Once I unplug en replug them, t... Read more

Hey, I got some BSOD problems. Do you got time & experience to help me?

I got Windows 8 at the moment, I will install 8.1 shortly. Had 8.1 before i re-installed OS when the first BSOD showed up, so I doubt that 8.1 will fix things completely.

My problems ATM!

- Driver Power State Failure
- Video TDR Failiure (nvlddmkm.sys)
- Screen freezes at start up or when I get to the desktop
- Have to Disable my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M to use the CPU (Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Got two other kinds of BSOD before I re-installed windows but don't remember what they said, I just felt like "Hey I need to re-install my OS anyways so w/e". But apparently that didn't solve the problems.

I also gained "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 340.52 stopped working While playing CS:GO" but that was before I re-installed windows. And now to use my CPU I need to go into Device Manager and shutdown my NVIDIA card to be able to use the CPU and use the Intel card instead. If I don't shut it down my CPU will freeze the screen for days, til I restart or I get a BSOD.

I will buy a can of air and open up my laptop and blow some dust away, perhaps that could help? Perhaps the NVIDIA card is burned/broken and I have to buy a new PC?

I've tried a few different driver for my NVIDIA card also, nothing works.

I'm no computer expert and thats why I'm here begging for help, so if someone could help me out here I would appreci... Read more

I just tried to restart my laptop and it took like really long to restart .. basically it was stuck at the "Restarting blue'ish screen" and after a while displayed some texts like "collecting info ....... Driver_Power_State_Failure"

After googleing a bit, it seems lots of people suggests its likely being caused by a damaged/outdated driver or something similar but I checked the device manager and I don't have any errors/yellow sigh anywhere and also tried checking updates for Ethernet/wifi adapters etc .. it just says I already have the latest version.

I've installed a few new softwares on pc recently but I'm don't think these can actually cause this issue, itunes latest version and a virtual wifi router: this one: https://virtualrouter.codeplex.com/ (don't know if I should link it here but incase it helps)

Also I don't think I've any virus issues, running comodo + maleware bytes ... so far no detection's.

Any advise how to fix it?

Hi
I have just upgraded from windows XP 32 to window 7 64
My cursor is really jittery and typing is delayed
if I leave my computer and it goes idle then i get the blue screen and one of the messages is 'driver power state failure'
I've got the dmp files zipped and attached to this thread
I suspect that I need to remove or update a driver?

Not sure if this is helpful or not but I have pasted the results of a WhoCrashed test

It seems this is a pretty common occurance lately. 2 Days ago I updated my Vista Home Premium with SP2 and since then it has been crash after crash.. Right now I am lucky if I can go an hour before a crash. It started 5 minutes after installing sp2 with the error message Bugcode_USB_Driver and a bunch of numbers, I got online direct with microsoft and allowed them access to my computer and they deleted all drivers and reinstalled and updated..etc.etc.
After that I was good for about 6 hours then I started crashing with the Driver_Power_State failure. I have not installed any other new hardware or software.
My Specs are: HP Pavillion TX1000US 2GB ram...not sure what else u need.
This is making me crazy....This is the 3rd time I tried to post but my system freezes up.. Everytime it is going to crash my mouse and keyboard lock up, both are wireless devices.
I have tried to zip my 21 minidump files but no matter what I do it is always empty.

Please help... this is the first time I have ever posted anything and I hope I am in the right place...

A couple of days ago I did a Windows 10 64-bit "clean install" on my Dell Inspiron 1564 Laptop, and it has been running well, basically. However, I did experience a Driver Power State Failure on startup today. It immediately reached 100% complete in collecting error info, but did not restart after (as it said it would). I waited for approximately 10 minutes more and then manually rebooted. It came up fine.

Going forward, I am not sure what I should be doing to correct the situation. If someone has recommendations, I would be appreciative.

By "clean install", I mean I upgraded from 7 to 10 - then I did a computer recovery - reset this pc, at which time I told it to remove all my personal files and applications. I think I have 4 GB of ram, but quite frankly, the system information screen has changed; and even digging into the Device Manager information leaves me no less confused about what is installed. So I hope this is enough of the basics for someone to give me a basic next step.

Thank you,

If it doesn't pop back up, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Sometimes drivers can fail every once in a while.

The last two days my Acer Extensa 5420 Laptop will just go to a blue screen and it will state "Driver_Power_State_Failure" and begin dumping physical memory. Once it's done that, it will restart and it will take over 30 minutes sometimes to get Windows Vista to come back on. The green "loading" bar will come on, and then a black screen with no cursor or anything will stay on for all that time. Sometimes I have to restart it or do a hard shut down and start it for it to EVENTUALLY come back up.
I checked the updates, and everything except a Windows Live Essentials is already updated.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I run an online business, and if I don't have this computer, I have no income.

Thanks!!

Sounds like a hard drive issue - I would get into the system software (bios) and run a hard drive diagnostic. Othewise, you can run a chkdsk on the hard drive volumes.

Hi,

The attached DMP is of the DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f) bugcheck.

This error occurs if drivers do not handle power state transition requests properly, usually during one of the following procedures: shut down, suspending or resuming from standby, suspending or resuming from hibernation.

A service is reported as having an unexpected error code

Cause: One or more services has failed. The service did not stop gracefully, suggesting the service may have crashed or one of its components stopped in an unsupported way.

Details: Service exited with code not equal to 0 or 1077

I just got a BSoD with the error as DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I have attached the logs.

Also, I was googling for this and one site told to run sigverif.

The output for that is also attached. The second and third one are okay because I allowed them to install. They are a custom trackpad driver for Windows on Mac (Trackpad++ Project [Home Page]). However, the first one, I don't recognize. Is that the problem?

And I think the problem is with USB. I know you said last time it is Kaspersky but I have observed that whenever my USB ports act funny after waking up from sleep, the system won't go to sleep again. What I started doing was whenever I observe my USB port going bonkers, I restart the system. Today, I did the same thing and voila BSoD.

I would like to add one last thing. During our last conversation (if usasma is reading this), you mentioned 2 apple drivers which were older than the one in Bootcamp 5. Those are because Trackpad++ updates these drivers and replaces this. I don't think this is a problem as many of my friends are using it without issues. But, wdfcoinstaller01011.dll is what I am suspecting.

I also did Step 1 of the advanced troubleshooting here and am attaching that file (via SkyDrive as it is too big to attach here). http://sdrv.ms/17CINyA

A:Driver Power State Failure

The wdfcoinstaller is OK, here's a link to a description of it: Redistributable Framework Components (Windows Drivers)

The dump files blame 2 things - so let's start this out slowly.
First, uninstall Kaspersky and see if the system still BSOD's. Give it a day or two.
Then, if it does still BSOD, uninstall the VMWare program and see if it still BSOD's

Leave the system as it is, and upload the memory dumps.
We'll see what they blame and we'll move on from there.

Hi
I've been getting this BS error for quite a while now and it is becoming more frequent so I've decided to take action. I have no idea what?s causing it but it happens when I try to put my laptop into hibernate - sometimes it happens when the laptop is idle. The Vista report (below) tells me that there is a solution available which is great but it doesn't tell me what that is. I have no idea what the 3 files mentioned are or how to find them. I have run CHKDSK but it didn't find any issues though maybe I missed something. I have also updated all my drivers from Device Manager but it tells me that everything is up to date.
I have the date from the first shutdown. Is there anyway from that that I can see what was installed on that date that may be causing the problem? There is nothing close to that date that I can see in Control Panel.
My laptop is an ASUS M51Sn running off Vista x32 which was preinstalled and is about 3 years old. I have attached the files as per the BSOD guide.

Thanks in advance

How are you turning off the machine? Clicking the Orb and selecting Shut Down or pressing the power button?

Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Interestingly, each of the memory dumps mentions GEARAspiWDM.sys - a driver most commonly used by iTunes.
I'd suggest uninstalling iTunes in order to test this (but don't suspect that this is the cause). The reason it's involved (I think) is because the error is in the section of the chipset drivers that involves the controllers for the CD/DVD drives.

If this is your motherboard: ECS Web Site > GF8100VM-M5 (V1.0)
Then your chipset is the GeForce 8100/nForce 720a - which does have Win8 and 8.1 compatible drivers available from nVidia here: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers I cannot tell the dates of the drivers from the date of the package - you'll have to install it and see if the drivers are updated (we'll check them in any subsequent BSOD's).

But, the ECS website doesn't have any BIOS later than 2010 - and it appears it doesn't support Win8 on this motherboard.

Please update these older drivers (they're all part of the chipset 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 de... Read more
