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

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.

I've been having getting this BSOD for a while. However, I noticed that it only occurs some time (maybe 15-30mins) after i run an application using the dedicated GPU (Nvidia Geforce 840m). If only the integrated graphic card is used, it runs fine.

While surfing the web, I suddenly got this BSOD that says something about a driver power state failure.  I don't know if this is the only incident, or if this is going to repeat in the future.  I am not that much of a computer wiz, so I would like to know what is causing this BSOD, and if this is an isolated incident or a recurring one?

Hello all,

I recently 'inherited' a computer from a friend, and for the most part, it seems to run fine. It just has this one teeeeeeny issue - it's crash dumping and BSODing every time I shut it down. Up until today, the problem was limited to when I try shut it down; it did not occur any other time. For the first time today, it happened while I was using the computer.

It gives the Driver Power State Failure message but does not specify a driver. I've gone through, checked, and updated every driver possible in the device manager. I've run the memory diagnostic (3 times, twice with 2 passes and one time the more comprehensive scan). No problems found there. For some reason I can't get the hard drive self test to run (wondering if it's related to this issue or if it's because I reformatted the drive when I installed Windows 7?).

? OS - Windows 7
? x86 64-bit
? What was original installed OS on system? Vista
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
? Age of system (hardware) I'm not certain exactly, as it was a gift, but I would guess mfg date around 2008
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? I have reinstalled the OS, about 3 weeks ago.

A:BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

Hello Redcatt and welcome to TSF!

It appears that all of the attached dumps are 9F DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE bugchecks that do not point to a conclusive driver. No issue, let's get this sorted!

In the latest dump for example, as you can see here... there are four arguments:


Quote:




DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)
A driver is causing an inconsistent power state.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000003, A device object has been blocking an Irp for too long a time
Arg2: fffffa80020d1a20, Physical Device Object of the stack
Arg3: fffff80000b9c518, Functional Device Object of the stack
Arg4: fffffa80043d20d0, The blocked IRP




Using WinDbg, let's run an !irp on the 4th arguments address.

After running that, we NOW get a culprit driver as you can see here:


Quote:




0: kd> !irp fffffa80043d20d0

A:Bsod driver power state failure

Please start by going to Device Manager and right clicking on the Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter(s). Select Uninstall and let it uninstall the adapter. Don't be surprised if the adapter doesn't come back when rebooting - the only problem would be if it still shows an error condition after rebooting.

I suspect that this will fix the BSOD's, but we'll have to look at the dump files and (at a minimum) replace the networking drivers just to be sure.

....Running the dump file now.....

The dump file blames e1y62x64.sys - a component of your Intel(R) PRO/1000 Gigabit Networking Adapter

Please download a copy of the latest Windows 7 64 bit driver for this device from the Intel Download Center ( http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx )
Then uninstall the current Intel networking driver from your system
Then install the freshly downloaded driver and monitor for further BSOD's.

Please also update this driver: 000.fcl Fri Sep 26 09:11:22 2008
It is a component of the Cyberlink program installed on your system.

System Info:

Running Windows 7 - Home premium if I am correct.

This is getting aggravating, as I use it as a mobile DJ, it hasn't happened on a gig yet, thankfully, but do not want to take a chance of it happening!

Any help is greatly appreciated

A:BSOD - 9f - Driver Power State Failure

Hi -

As the thread title states, the bugcheck on both dumps -

0x9f (0x3,,,) = driver in an inconsistant power state and blocking an IRP for too long a time. Probable cause is Atheros.

Are you running ESET ESS w/ firewall or just NOD32 anti-virus? I see you have ESET newest version v 4.2.40.0, so installation must have been recent. When exactly and do you know if BSODs began before or after new ESET install?

I usually find 3rd party firewalls involved in 0x9f (0x3,,,) BSODs. I myself run NOD32 a/v only on this particular system - not ESS.

Run the Driver Verifier --> http://jcgriff2.com/Driver_Verifier.htm

What is exact model of HP dv5? Look on bottom label. There are numbers after dv5-xxxx. Is HP support where you got the Atheros wifi driver update?

Regards. . .

I just got my ASUS G750 from Bestbuy a few weeks ago. I've been encountering this same BSOD since I got it (after installing programs).

On further analysis, the driver blamed is the "acpi.sys" which is a Windows component, and chance of it being at fault is extremely unlikely. Below is a list of the 3rd party drivers installed on your PC and I think that the ASUS Bloatware is causing all this. I have highlighted those Asus Bloatware drivers as well.

I've been dealing with random BSOD for months now when I sleep/hibernate my computer. Lately it has gotten quite bad and happens nearly everytime. I'm thinking it is a hardware issue, but I'm trying to rule out a software issue. I've tried to update every outdated driver on my laptop to the latest version. Nothing seems to help.

I've also run full hardware diagnostics/memory scans, and that doesn't reveal any problems.

Any help before I throw the computer out the window would be appreciated!

This is the original OS on the system

Laptop is about one year old

Afraid that is all I know, unless someone could tell me how to get other info (motherboard, video card, etc).

Can you zip up a couple of the minidumps and attach them to a reply, or if the are too large even compressed, post them on One Drive or Dropbox etc? There is also this online crash dump analyzer that will allow you to view the the minidumps tht might interest you. OSR's Instant Online Crash Analysishttp://www.osronline.com/page.cfm?name=Analyze  Cheers,

I recently got a BSOD before this BSOD
the BSOD happened yesterday was kernel_data_input_error and I think I have fixed it? but the computer is still a little slow, and I noticed my Disk usage is most of the time at 100% then the apps(Browsers,task managers etc2) doesn't respond and now This BSOD Driver Power State Failure happened. I read that it's about an incompatible driver, but I don't know how to detect an incompatible driver because I refreshed windows 8.

Now I got the Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS__OR_EQUAL
Edit: Got a BSOD again it's Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal again and it said tcpip.sys

I think this is about uTorrent.. Whene I open uTorrent and a few minutes later im getting a BSOD

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.

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!

Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

My brand new HP Envy computer already got this blue screen [driver power state failure was all I was able to read].
Got scared! Rebooted, it was hard to get the wifi connection back, but I did. Rebooted again, just to make sure, and it takes much longer time for it now, to come back to life.

I might add I wasn't doing anything at all when it happened ... just woke it up from sleeping.

I've been getting a blue screen for the past week now every time my computer goes to sleep with the Driver Power State Failure message. I've done a lot of research and can see that this is likely due to a faulty driver that isn't updated, and since Windows Update has recently been doing a lot of updating I suspect this is the case. I just need to know which driver is causing the problem. More info:

Hi. Im having a problem with my computer. The last few days I have been having a new BSOD problem.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.

Based on the bugcheck, I would recommend you follow and complete the steps given below:





Quote:
1. If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop. Reset any changed values back to default and reset/clear CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. Uninstall any overclocking tool as these can also be a reason of blue screens.

2. Uninstall your current antivirus software. It can be a cause of BSOD very often. Please remove it with its removal tool and use Microsoft Security Essentials in its place. Malwarebytes is a great combination with it. Go through this thread for more info.

3. Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

4. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check windows for integrity violations. Run it up to three times to fix all errors. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

5. Make scans with Kaspersky TDSskiller and ESET Online scanner.

6. Perform a Clean Start up, this will help avoid any problematic applications from bugging the system.

7. Use Revo Uninstaller Free to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advanced Mode and uninstall the software, delete the leftover registry entries.

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.

Double-click System.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.

Hi folks. I'm getting the Driver Power State Failure blue screen in Windows 7 x64. Here are my vitals:

It's an HP dv6-3052nr laptop with a fingerprint scanner.

? Windows 7 x64 Home Premium OEM - I have not reinstalled the OS since I got it from HP, and I am ok with doing that if need be.
? This is a brand new laptop, it's only like 2 months old at most
? Intel Core i7 720QM, 6GB ram
? ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
? No idea what the motherboard or power supply is

This is your run of the mill new laptop. I use it for web browsing and communication, but I use it as a music recording computer, so I have some music programs installed. Also, I have a USB audio interface for music recording as well.

The blue screen has happened twice in the last two days, and once a few days ago. I have been getting a popup dialog that says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" on startup as well too; it happens after the blue screen error but it has also happened after I have closed the lid on the laptop. I think the cause is actually my fingerprint reader, because it has its own sleep/wake cycle and it doesn't always wake when I open my laptop up.

I have attached all requested files as per the BSOD posting instructions. I hope you guys can help me out! Thanks for everything.

Hi,

I have been having a problem with multiple BSOD on my almost-new laptop (got it in November).

The blue screen will happen at completely random times, sometimes I am just surfing the web when it happens.
Today it has happened twice withing 10 minutes.
I have of course Googled it, but there seems to be a lot of different solutions, and they all rely on the mini dumps.

I have no experience when it comes to these crash dumps, but I have gathered them in a zip file and I really hope someone can see what the problem is!

My specs are as follows, please ask if you need more information:
XMG A723 Shark Gaming Edition laptop
Intel® Core™ i7 4th Generation Quad Core
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 765M 2GB GDDR5
3 x 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets supporting a maximum of 24GB 1600MHz DDR3 memory
Intel HD Graphics
Intel® HM87 Express Chipset
2x 9.5mm 2.5" SATA-III Drive
1x mSATA-III SSD

Hello,
I have been experiencing BSODs since I bought this cpu almost a year ago. The time between blue screens can range from a couple of hours to over a month. I use my computer mostly as a gaming laptop and most of the blue screens occur while I game. However, they have occasionally occured while I was just surfing the internet. It is always a driver power state failure blue screen. On to the cpu specs:

Alienware M17x R3
? OS - Windows 7
? 64 bit
? The OS came pre-installed
? The system is almost 1 year old, bought in august of 2011

? Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2720QM CPU @ 2.20GHz, 2201 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

I heard Mcafee could cause blue screens and so I recently deleted it, however I just got a BSOD earlier today with it deleted.

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

AND

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.

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...

... and get rid of this one:

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.

Laptop works fine as long as monitor doesn't go to sleep or if computer is shutdown. After a certain period of time when monitor goes to sleep, BSOD appears and then computer restarts. If I try to shutdown the laptop, it hangs. Screen just says "Shutting Down" for approximately 10 minutes and then get BSOD. Works fine in Safe Mode. I have 2 additional files that I will have to post in the thread. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I performed a clean install of Win 8 x64 from Win 7 x86. I have had freezes or bsods at the Metro screen if the computer sits unattended for awhile or goes to sleep. I have updated the BIOS to the latest version, am running defaults and not overclocked. I think it is a driver issue but I cant seem to track it down. Any thoughts?

bump? If more information is needed let me know. Thanks. If it's general incompatibility with a piece of hardware I may just go back to Win 7.

Hello All,
I have been attempting to fix a win8 64bit issue on my dell xps600 for two weeks without success. I started the install with a clean install of win8 64bit and found that the BSOD started immediately. I have discovered that restarting the machine works fine and fast without any BSOD. However I get the BSOD when turning on the computer after shut down. I have nothing in device manager that is showing a problem and I've checked all but a few drivers that are old.

I really appreciate your time!

Steve

Just started happening within last 2 days.

Gateway P7811FX laptop (approx 2yrs old), full retail Win7 Pro x86 installed early June 2011. Never had a BSOD until last couple days. Both crashes occurred seemingly at random (not at startup).

Ran verifier as instructed here and OS crashed at startup. Able to turn off Driver Verifier in Safe Mode. Restarted normally to collect dump and perfmon files.

TIA

A device driver is probably the cause
For that reason old drivers should be updated:

Synaptic Touchpad driver Drivers | Synaptics
SD reader driver Fujitsu Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents
Conexant modem driver(s) Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents
Marvel Yukon Network driver Marvell - Support

This was Related to Rt64win7.sys 8101E/8168/8169 NDIS 6.20 64-bit Driver from Realtek Corporation

I would re-install using newest.

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.
