BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Q: BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

I've searched the forums and this seems to be a common bsod but varying in drivers that need to be updated.

? OS - Windows 7 ?
? x64
hp dm1z laptop


Originally, my problem was that I would put my computer into sleep or hibernate and I would be unable to recover back into windows. HP helped me turn the power settings off and on thus resetting it and it fixed it.

But now my computer hits BSOD once it's been asleep for about 10-15 mins, extended periods. It'd show BSOD out of no where!

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,

The single BSOD blames your wireless networking driver.

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

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)

Hi

I recently changed the case and added some internal peripherials to my computer. I have a 950W power supply so what I have should not be Bluescreening my computer. I cannot open the ,dmp files to find out what is going on. Can anyone help?

My system:

I am attaching the BSOD for today as a zip file.

A:BSOD with Driver power state Failure

Make and model of your Asus mobo?

Please post the info from this topic: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Initial triage suggests a problem with vclone.sys - a component of your VirtualCloneCD driver.
This theory is also supported by the presence of drivers related to it that date from 2002 (ElbyCDFL.sys and
ElbyVCD.sys)
I'd suggest uninstalling it to see if that stops the BSOD's

Also, your Norton shows up in the memory dumps, so I'd keep an eye on that.

PLease remove or update these older drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the update function of Device Manager:

My very recently purchased laptop was showing some problems from last 2 days. It would get stuck at the shutdown screen and then after extended span of time I had to press and hold power key to turn it off. It happened only twice. (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!!!

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.

This is a HP pavilon dm4 Laptop, windows 7 64 bit.

The BSOD seems to always happen when the computer is plugged in, although it has happened a couple times when it wasn't. Its never when I am in the middle of doing something, only when I leave the computer alone for a while will it crash like this. For example, even if I am just listening to music or watch a movie, it doesn't crash. It's like it does this when it gets bored or something... As long as it is doing something it is fine.

I updated the drivers using HP's tool, but the problem hasn't gone away.

I have an ASUS S56CM laptop with Windows 8.1.

For the past few days I have been getting a BSOD (Driver Power State Failure) upon start up. Leading up to this, my computer would freeze completely at random times not that often and I had to do a hard shut down to fix it.

The past three days have been identical. When turning my computer on from a completlely off state, it takes forever to start then eventually gives me the BSOD. The 0% thing never loads so I do a hard shut down and turn the computer back on. It still takes forever to start (8 minutes +) but I don't get a BSOD and am able to use the computer fine. Then when shutting down, it takes over 6-8 minutes as well. Before all this, my computer would get to the log in screen in under one minute.

I had a program called "WhoCrashed" but it hasn't logged any of the BSOD's from startup, only ones that I had when the computer was already on. For one of them, it told me the error may have been caused by iastora.sys which was the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. I tried to delete this as well as installing a newer version but it didn't fix anything.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!
Add to that the release of the Win10 preview and my system messing up - and I'm way behind on replying to topics. Sorry!

Do your still need help with this problem?

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.

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 -

Code:

VSO Software
pcouffin.sys Tue Dec 05 06:39:30 2006 (457584A2)

Hey guys,

I recently started getting the Blue Screen with the title driver_power_state_failure every time I try to shut down or even just make it sleep. The BSoD comes up and the computer keeps running until I press on hold the Power button.
Hope somebody can help me. I have uploaded my DxDiag and the AutoRun-file(2 of them).
I tried getting the the performance-report and the file from the BSOD_Windows7_Vista_v2.64_jcgriff2_ program but when it comes to where it says Waiting for Systeminfo it gets stuck and keeps posting that message
Just say if you need something more.

My system is the following(can be found more exact in the DxDiag):

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

A:BSOD Driver power state failure

Hi,

BSOD mentions win32k.sys - a Microsoft driver which is probably not the real cause.

So, run the driver verifier to try and get the real cause to show itself.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Also remove SPTD.sys which is known to cause BSODs; remove Daemon Tools, then use this SPTD installer to remove it (pick the uninstall option when you run the installer): DuplexSecure - Downloads

When you get a few more BSODs then please follow these Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions exactly.

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.

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.

? Vista Premium (2009)
? Original Vista was installed already, Windows 7 upgrade came from a retailer and I installed it.
? Age of system (hardware) - 3 years
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? I have not re-installed, but there are multiple copies of it because I added a new HDD and cloned the original before making the new one the primary HDD.

? CPU - Intel Core2 Duo T9550 @ 2.66GHz

Hello,

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!

My New Years Resolution is to get my laptop back to normal.

I've been having this issue for awhile where if I leave it sitting idle for a couple of minutes and come back, it may or may not cooperate. It frequently gets 'stuck' and becomes unresponsive. Every so often the BSoD pops up and gives the Driver Power State Failure.

I've zipped the documents as per the instructions in jcgriff2's signature.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

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.

Hey...

I have a Dell System XPS L502X. It's a Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium edition (64 bit) Service pack 1 and I bought the laptop this July.

I've been encountering this problem since quite sometime. I close my laptop lid to put it into sleep mode, but sometimes when I open the lid, the laptop's automatically shut down. When I press the power button and start the computer it gives me a notice "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" stating Bluescreen as the cause.
I installed the bluescreen view application and it shows that the crash is caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe and the bug check code is 0x00000009f. The bug check string column says "Driver_power_state_failure".

Attaching the minidump files and the bluescreenview results.

Please help!

The driver SynTP.sys is holding up your system, which is causing the crash. This is for the Synaptic Touchpad, and the file should be located \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\SynTP.sys. I noticed it's dated from Dec 2010, which is pretty dated. Check the Dell website to see if there's an update for it, as well as your BIOS. If there isn't (as in yours is the latest), you may need to contact their tech support for on update. Sometimes the techs will have a hotfix version of the driver available for specific cases. If they ask for information, provide them the following output below. Say that this is identical in every crashdump you've provided to us.

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.

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:
HP Support & Drivers | United States

You can also find it here:

I've been experiencing issues with my computer. It tends to blue screen and reads "Driver_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". I've tried to run some scans and diagnostics and even backed up my PC and then rebooted it with factory new settings, but it is still BSOD. I have a dump file, but I cannot post it because it says I do not have permission to open or attach it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks!

A:Driver Power State Failure - BSOD

You need to follow these directions
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

A:BSOD - Driver power state failure

Hi and Welcome back to SF!

This is probably driver issue. Please update the following driver

Code:
iaStorV iaStorV.sys Wed Apr 08 23:57:17 2009 (49DCD76D)
It was blamed in the dmp, the date of driver is old as well, please update it right now.
Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver


Code:
ASACPI ASACPI.sys Mon Mar 28 09:30:36 2005 (42476C4C)
The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 10th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads
