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

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

Hello,

I would appreciate any help with the following problem: the pc sometimes seemingly randomly shows BSOD with errors named in the title, I also attach corresponding screenshots. The problem wont happen if the PC power is supplied from the adapter AND there is some content running on the screen (video in VLC f.ex.). Other important symptoms are: Can not turn off the laptop. There will be endless blue screen saying shutting down,while PC already stopped working. I also can not get the PC to sleep. If i I go to sleep mode, display turns black, PC is still working on and on and I can not go back to desktop anymore.

Thank you very much for your help.

A:Driver Power State Failure

Have the same laptop and same problem. As far as I can tell it is due to a bad SD card reader driver. I downloaded the "Debugging Tools for Windows x64" from here and used it to load the memory dump file located in "C:\WINDOWS\Minidump". You can follow the description here on how to do this. The debugger identified the file "o2sdx64.sys" as the culprit so I went over to toshiba here and downloaded the latest SD reader driver. The old version of this file was identified by the device manager as 2.0.2.909 and after updating was 2.0.2.915.

I have not tested this for long but so far no BSOD. I did notice this error seemed to occur often when I was swapping files off the SD card I am hopful.

Hope this helps.

By the way I am running Vista x64

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.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite S55-C5363 and I have been semi-frequently getting BSOD due to "Driver Power State Failure." This usually happens when I try to run software that is somewhat graphically intensive, such as solidworks or photoshop. In either case, they run for a period of time (sometimes long, sometimes short), and then I encounter the bluescreen. I believe my computer has a good enough specs to run this software. Either way, I don't think my computer should be crashing.
I have malwarebytes installed and am currently running a scan. I just installed bluescreenview. Let me know if I should download any software and attach any logs. Attached is a log from speccy.
Thank you.
 

A:Driver Power State Failure

The one thing I notice straight away from your specs is that you're running an Nividia 950m graphics card in your laptop, with version 354.35 drivers.
 
The latest drivers for this model of card are at version 375.70 (available here), Seeing as you experience driver failures when performing graphically intense operations, you may well find that a straight update to the latest drivers from Nvidia might well solve your problems.

For some reason whenever i do something that uses my graphics card i get a BSOD. I disabled it to confirm that it was indeed causing me issues.

Ive reflashed the bios, updated the driver, rolled it back and even did a complete reinstall to factory settings.

I upgraded to Windows 10 as well to see if it would fix the issue but it has not done anything.

The graphics card is a GTX 670m.

Edit: Sometimes i will get the BSOD doing normal things such as browsing or even being on the desktop.

According to the output of dxdiag, you have a Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000.
You also have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M but it doesn't appear to be the active video card. Update that driver to the latest WHQL version which is 368.39.

Looks like the Intel is onboard and the Nvidia is a PCI-E card.

I've read through several of the previous DPSF threads and everyone is asked for a "minidump", please don't ask unless you know a psychic that can commune with my laptop as it will not advanced to any state other than BSOD at this point.

My desktop just crashed and all I could get was "Driver_Power_State_Failure" off the BSOD before it went down.

Now when I hit the power button I get NO VIDEO OUTPUT at all, so I can't even turn it on. I was thinking about trying to turn it on w/o a monitor and get in over the network to get the dump files but being as I have no video I can't logon so it won't get to the homegroup for me to do that. Unfortunately this is all the information I have.

A:Driver Power State Failure

Guys I solved the problem, or at least located it and found a temporary fix.

It appears my video card bit the dust and I solved the problem by routing the monitors directly to the motherboard connectors and removing the video card.

3 years running on the card, I think I got my $100 worth.

Hi Allfor the past days I've bumped into BSOD Driver Power State Failure quite a few times. All my drivers are up to date, but I suspect my BIOS not to be. My BIOS version is: CDCN26WW, 12-10-15. Could the problem be around the BIOS?

Recently I've been getting blue-screened every 15 minutes or so with a Driver Power State Error. I'm beginning to get desperate for a solution. Attaching the DMP file seems difficult, as it is over 300MB, somehow. Is there any way to split off the more recent part of it, or an easy upload service where I could send it?

I used a program called Bluescreenview to make a text file out of the most recent dump... I think. Here's the text file it gave me.

I have a 5 month old Lenovo Thinkpad, Win 32, Vista Basic, SP2 with all updates done. It and a desktop operate on my wireless private home network via a Linksys WRT160N router. On Oct. 2 I added a 1TB My Book World Edition as an auto backup drive and installed Western Digital software on the laptop only. My Book is connected via USB cable to the router. So far, the laptop isn't correctly loading or recognizing or connecting with the Western Digital drives, so no backups. While I'd like to solve that problem, the BSoD is first priority and may be related to the WD install.

I'm unclear about the connection between the events because the first mini dump was Sept. 29, before the WD install. Since Oct. 22, there have been frequent unexpected shutdowns, usually while the laptop is asleep. At various times my apps software has frozen (Word, Outlook) and the shutdown cycle then takes about 10 minutes. The script when recovering from an unexpected shutdown on Oct. 28 was:

Problem signature:

Hello JimPA and welcome to TSF!

You may try these:

1.) Restart your computer Tap F8 and select Last Known Good Command Config and see if everything goes back to normal.
2.) If No. 1 is unsuccesful try uninstalling the WD software
3.) Do you have the 1 TB backup hooked up to your laptop? Unplug it
4.) Maybe you'll need your RAM upgraded
5.) If none of these works, since it's only 5mos old, it's under warranty, I would contact Lenovo.

I think the general set of symptoms apply to my situation. I haven't experienced a shut down while using my laptop, but I've come home on occasion and it was shutdown, though I'm fairly certain I left it on. Additionally, if I close the lid and allow the computer to go into 'sleep' mode, it won't start back up...instead it says that it ran into a problem and will gather some info and restart for me. It also states that I can look up "POWER_STATE_DRIVER_FAILURE" to learn more about the problem...which lead me here.

I think I've followed the instructions properly but if there is information you need from me that isn't provided, please let me know.

So I have an Asus ROG laptop and I've recently started having some issues with it, one of them being this driver state power failure bsod. Its happened 3 times now in the past two weeks.

I haven't exactly nailed down what causes it, but I've done some research and most places suggest updating drivers and BIOS to fix it.

The first issue I'm having with this is that I'm unable to update my BIOS. I've got the file downloaded from the Asus website, I put it on a flash drive and tried to use the EZ Flash 3 utility to update the BIOS but it doesn't see the flash drive. In fact it doesn't see any drive at all except for one 256 MB partition on the main hard drive (laptop has an SSD and 2nd hard drive for storage). I've tried formatting the drive in FAT32 as old documentation suggested it might need that but still no luck. I've tried several flash drives and no luck. I read that USB 3.0 might be the problem, but the laptop only has 3.0 ports. So not sure what I can do about that if that is the actual problem.

Some other additional information, a few days ago I noticed my power brick for charging the laptop got extremely hot as it was under some blankets and such. How long that was going on I don't know. Could the charger be the problem? When it BSOD'd a couple hours ago it was shortly after I unplugged it (30 seconds-ish). But this did crash before I noticed the power brick issue so I don't know if its been a thing for that long or not.

Also I did update my video card... Read more

A:Win 10 Driver State Power Failure

Hi. . .

I definitely need the minidumps to see if they yield any clues. Most 0x9f bugckeck BSODs (DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE) that I see typically involve networking drivers. But not all of them.

The title of the 0x9f BSOD is misleading and confusing. It has nothing to do with power bricks getting too hot because of blankets; nor the system being unplugged and running on battery power; probably not the video driver -- but I have seen video drivers involved in 0x9f BSODs.

Hopefully the memory dump(s) will tell us the driver that is responsible for your BSODs - assuming that your BSODs are software related and not the result of hardware failure.

Run the app in these instructions. It will copy the dump(s) and generate about 25 system reports that are helpful to me.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista

However, before you run the BSOD Instructions app, I want you to run Driver Verifier first -

Driver Verifier - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista (BSOD-related)

Let it run in the background for at least 24 hours. If a BSOD occurs while running Driver Verifier, then run the BSOD Sysnative/jcgriff2 app (per step 1) and attach the zip file to your next post. If no BSODs after 24 hours, then run the BSOD app.

The dumps are filled with a lot of spacing and nulls, so they compress greatly. A 1 GB "mini dump" is more the norm these days as each version of Windows adds more to the dumps to help the BSOD A... Read more

You have a NETGEAR WNDA4100 N900 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - 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/Win8 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.



We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. ... Read more
