BSOD - Driver Power State Failure when laptop shuts down

Q: BSOD - Driver Power State Failure when laptop shuts down

This error has been happening for 80% of the time when my laptop is shutting down or restarting. It started few days ago when I removed everything and reinstalled windows. I then refreshed my laptop couple of times but the problem is still persisted. I updated windows and all devices are up to date. Restarts are also slow when it does restart properly.

When I tried updating to windows 8.1, it would stop at "setting up 82%" and had to hold the power button to turn off the laptop couple times.

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.

From day one when I opened up this laptop it was crashing. I've had the RAM replaced, the SSD (twice), factory reset, MOBO replaced, and still the same intermittent crashing. The company I bought this from "tried" to fix it but couldn't ever get anywhere. This has been a 2 year P.I.T.A. for me and I'm finally coming to you guys because the company I bought this from has informed me that my warranty is up and I will have to start paying for their "help". I thought that was comical. Nonetheless. Here I am. I need help. Not sure where to start because I've never been able to pinpoint the cause. Most of the time the BSOD reads "Driver State Power Failure". I've personally updated all of my drivers, chipset, BIOS, graphics card, etc. The vendor has also done the same. To no avail.

Let me know what I can do to help someone diagnose this for me.

A:New Laptop - BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

It sounds like you have an ASUS ROG G551JW laptop which originally came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
You say you bought it new and had problems with it the very first day of use, so I'm surprised you didn't return it for another one instead of having hardware replaced in it for the past 2 years.

There are several links here that you can read about "driver power state failure" in Windows 10.

I am new. I cannot access my minidump folder because I do not have access and cannot find out how to get access, otherwise I'd post it up.

I am trying to download new chipset drivers from gateway and I am sitting at 0% the download will not start.

The laptop is new roughly 3 months old. I am running Vista 64 on a Gateway P-7800. I've BSoD'd probably 15 times in the last week or so. Please help. Thanks.

Dear forummers,

Recently, I've been heving some BSOD'S wen putting my GE70-i550M287FD to sleep mode or hibernation. The NB just stays just active with a black screen for a while, only to end up in a BSOD eventually.
It gives me always the same BSOD, so I figured it would be caused by a single error. However, I haven't been able to detect and fix it up until now. I hoped that some of you might have dealt with it before or know how to deal with it.

The only hardware I've got plugged is the mouse. I have't been able to test if I got the same error without the mouse plugged. Also, this BSOD ONLY occures when going into hibernation/sleep mode.

This is a photo from the BSOD I keep getting once a week/2 weeks or so.

I have read something about minidump files. How do I open them and do they contain any necessary information needed to fix this error?

Thank you in advance!

I'm getting frequent random BSOD Power_Driver_State_Failure on my ASUS G551JM Laptop (https://asus.com/support/Download/3/...RbVetG02i5/41/) It happens while plugged in and running off battery but more frequently on battery power. It usually happens within 30 minutes of powering on the laptop or waking it up from sleep/hibernate. It primarily happens after logging into windows but on rare occasion will blue screen prior.

I've updated drivers from Asus and chipset manufacturers websites: intel rapid storage driver, Intel MEI driver, Intel INF driver, Intel wifi and bluetooth drivers, clean installed nvidia gtx 860m drivers. I tried to update intel HD graphics drivers but got this error message:
Computer Manufacturer Graphics Driver Detected. Your computer manufacturer customizes the drivers that run Intel components on your machine. You might lose functions and cause other technical issues by installing the Intel drivers.
Windows updates are up-to-date and no virus or malware.

Please help,

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 about a month and a half ago I bought myself a new MSI Laptop, and in the past 3 weeks I've had 5 Driver Power State Failure (DPSF) BSOD's. I've searched around but I'm not confident enough when it comes to BSOD's to actually do anything without first getting some advice for my particular problem.All I have really been able to tell from this is that the error always occurs at the same location, ntoskrnl.exe (+7cc40), which, being a critical part of the OS, I assume is a very bad thing.

A:Driver Power State Failure - New MSI Laptop

I would try...downloading (from MSI website)...chipset and wireless drivers for your system...then removing the current drivers via Device Manager, followed by installation of the new ones.

Or...if you have drivers CD with your system, you can use that, rather than downloading drivers from MSI website.

I have been getting a Driver power state failure bsod for about a week now. Some days it doesn't seem to occur that much while other its several times an hour. From googling it seems like the issue is either an out of date driver or my ram. I"ve run "whocrashed" and "bluescreenview" which point to

This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x14F9A0)
Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFE00101519060, 0xFFFFD0018AB69960, 0xFFFFE00106234C10)

but I guess this isn't the actual driver (or ram) causing the issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Open again an admin command prompt
Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow doesn't say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.

I have a BSOD problem that states Driver Power State Failure. I read it is caused by a problem with a change in the alimentation mode or something, but this BSOD really happens randomly (last time occurred while I was reading a web page... I didn't even touch a key or the mouse).

I'm running Windows 7 32bits, my laptop is 3 or 4 months old (windows 7 was already installed).

I tried to run the batch from the "Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions", but no folder is created when it's done... I followed every step (also ran the batch as an admin) so I don't know where the problem is coming from. The batch runs smoothly until the end, but there is just no folder created in my Documents folder. (I don't know if this is normal, but on the line right after "We will begin in 5 seconds..." there is a message saying that "the path hasn't been found" (my os is in french, so I don't know exactly what is the original line in english) but the batch still runs to the end).

I attached my last 3 minidumps, the perfmon file and a msinfo32.nfo file.

Thanks in advance for your help!

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

I am new to this forum, which I found online while searching for a fix to a BSOD I'm repeatedly having. I am hoping someone could help me out because it is getting extremely frustrating. The PC is used as a dedicated media center. So having the system go down multiple times during a movie is not fun at all.

I first noticed a problem with Win 7 about 10 or so days ago. The OS seemed to be slower than normal when logging on, but no issues other than that. Shortly thereafter when I would switch my TV input to my PC I was continually getting the login screen. I did a little research and it was suggested to change the Windows option to not restart on failure, which I did.

After making that change I noticed a repeated BSOD, with a Driver_Power_State_Failure message. The time varies on how long it will take before I get the crash, but it happens with certainty right now. Windows is also extremely slow logging in, and completely crashes after initial login frequently as well.

The only change that I can pinpoint is that I used a SATA to USB HDD converter to backup a hard drive. Well, attempted to backup. I cannot complete this due to system crashes. Also, I was having repeated system crashes with a portable HDD plugged in, and after unplugging it the system started on the next boot. This could be a coincidence, but I have not troubleshooted that further.

I've been coming across this bsod for a few weeks now, it only happens when i put the computer into sleep/hibernate. It even happens sometimes when the computer tries to start from a cold boot. 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 dshaw02 and Welcome to TSF,

Please follow the posting instructions found here, ZIP all the files down and attach them to your next post.

After looking through this specific BSOD a bit there are a few thing i'd like you to either inactivate or update as they're old drivers:

STREAM.SYS Tue Jul 14 01:06 : 18 2009 (4A5BCBFA)

Belongs to: Pinnacle Instant DVD recorder


atikmdag.sys Mon Feb 28 16:46:24 2011 (4D6BD160)

There is a newer driver found at ATI's webpage. Uninstall this driver, reboot the machine, install the new ones.

I can't really tell more from this BSOD you've attached, i'll need all the information from the BSOD instructions. All for now is that ONE driver is calling the System Kernel, and sending an invalid command for the operating system, and then crashes.

Hello everyone,

My PC was running flawlessly until I woke it from sleep one day to find out that the USB keyboard and mouse and all other USB ports are not working. I figured ok I'll just restart. Well the restart hung at "Shutting Down..." for 5 minutes+ before I got a BSOD and the system eventually rebooted.

This happened a couple of times so I thought I should update all USB drivers and I did download the latest Intel drivers and installed them. This fixed the USB ports freeze after sleep wakeup, but if I use the PC after that for 5-10 minutes, I'll get a BSOD again which you'll see in the attached zip file.

In device manager, I was seeing an error with a driver called wirelesskeyboardfilter_01, but i researched that and found it had to do with HP drivers and I don't have any. I even followed a Microsoft article to fix wirelesskeyboardfilter_01 but the problem persisted.

I would like to know which driver is causing the BSOD so that I update it/fix it.

I did a memory test and it came back with no errors and in advanced power plan settings, USB selective suspend setting is Disabled.

I would really appreciate your help and I thank you in advance.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Hi shhaggy,

The mini-dump exhibits 'ntsokrnl.exe' error that may indicate software issues. As per my experience, a fresh 'Windows reinstall' has been most useful. However, you may also try the following steps:

1. Reinstall 'Video Card' drivers
Click 'Start' and type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search programs & files' > Tap 'Enter' > Expand 'Display Adapters > Right click & uninstall 'GeForce 8800GT' (Confirm software install if prompted) > Follow through with the uninstall and restart the system > Click Drivers | GeForce to run 'Auto-detect GPU Utility' > Download and install the suggested driver > Restart system and check results

2. If the issue persists, run 'System File Checker tool' to see if that works: Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

3. If you still experience issues, try 'Factory Reset' (If a healthy recovery image is available)
If a healthy 'Recovery Image' is available (on the hard drive or on an external media), you may restore the system back to known-good settings. This step may not always work; you may give it a shot before doing a 'fresh Windows Reinstall'.

Note: 'Factory Image Restore/Operating System Reinstall' will lead to data-loss; please backup the data on an external media before attempting the restore options.

Please uninstall Daemon Tools as it's sptd.sys driver is known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems. Then use this free tool to ensure that the offending sptd.sys driver is removed from the system: DuplexSecure - FAQ

The BSOD's blame o2sd.sys - a component of your Memory Card Reader software by O2Micro. Please download and install this driver to see if that fixes the problem: MSI Global ? Download Center
Also, please take care of these:
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please update these drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.

Hi. . .

You need to update your H5321 gw Mobile Broadband Driver.

The only known source is Lenovo Support - http://support.lenovo.com/us/en

If you can't find a driver update, go into Device Manager and disable the device since you are using your Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection Ethernet for Internet.

Hello- First-timer! Sorry, I hope this isn't a redundant post. I'm not too savy and don't understand all the lingo so go easy on me.

Backstory: This is my first post and I'm very new to the computer world (beyond the basics). I decided to try and take on my first build (everything new except PSU and case). Everything seemed fine until recently.

Problem: I keep getting the BSOD shortly after coming out of sleep mode. It mentions "Driver Power State Failure". I have read several posts claiming similar happenings but all of the replies seem very specific to people's hardware and associated drivers so I wasn't sure how to apply it to my situation. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have attached my dump files.

Hey there again guys! Recently my computer has been giving me a handful of BSoDs lately, claiming to have shut down because of a "driver power state failure". I've done my Google homework on this problem, but none of the forums I've checked were specific to the issues I've been having with my system. They include: updating drivers, deleting certain things and etc, but they all have different stuff on their computer than I have. It's happened to me five times since it started, last week or so. I'd love you forever if you could figure out for me why I keep getting my BSoDs!

I've attached the .dmp file and thank you guys! <3

A:BSoD -- driver power state failure

When does the BSOD occur?
I'd start by taking out any add-on peripherals inside your PC. Leave only the required components required to get into Windows connected - motherboard, ram, cpu, graphics card (if neccesary), and hard drive.
If it continues with this setup, i think it may be graphics drivers.

The past week I noticed that every time I put my computer to sleep, I would notice that my monitor would either stay on or I'm assuming after a short while come back on while the rest of the computer was sleeping. My monitor by the way is a Samsung Syncmaster 2232BW plus. I noticed this monitor staying on problem at least 3 times this week. So today, I left my computer on, and when it tried to automatically enter sleep mode, a stop error occurred. This is the first time that I got this blue screen as the computer tried to enter sleep mode. Other system information that might be useful: I have a wireless mouse and keyboard, both logitech and both are operating with setpoint. I also have a Creative SB X-Fi sound card installed. Furthermore, shortly before this post I went to device manager and updated the driver for my videocard.

A:Driver Power State failure BSOD

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 -


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.

NRT - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

Reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START | type firewall.cpl | select firewall.cpl above under programs | top-left, select "Restore Defaults"

Install MS Security Essentials --> http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

Hello soupbox.

As a test, can you disable the webcam via device manager, and see if it continues to crash, or stops?

Whatever may the result be, let us know.

You have 26 BSOD (24 are from March 29th) that all point to your O2Micro memory card reader. The crashes start on March 28th. Is that when you installed this? Please either disable or uninstall this device

Please update your computer to SP1 - How to update to SP1
*Updating to SP1 might fix the issue with the card reader. You can re-install it after you update and see if the crashes continue

Hi, my computer is being shutdown a few times with the Blue Screen and I have no idea what's going on. I have the Windows 7 and suposedly I have no hardware problem and/or compatibility but I have been reading the posts and I don't know what to do. So I have uploaded the DUMP files so you guys can give me a help. What should I do???

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

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
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.
