BSOD Drive Power State

Q: BSOD Drive Power State

Usually BSODs after second standby (when lid closed). First works fine...

Started after installing Win 7 from free Gateway update disk. Laptop purchased last August

Gateway NV52 running 7 at 64 bits

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.)

A: BSOD Drive Power State

7 memory dump files, all are STOP 0x9F and all are blaming VMNetSrv.sys - a component of the Microsoft Virtual Machine Network Services driver. (interestingly MSINFO32 blames tcpip.sys - a component of the Windows networking sub-system).

There are 89 STOP 0x9F's in the MSINFO32 report, along with 3 STOP 0x7F
More info on the STOP 0x9F here: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000009F
More info on the STOP 0x7F here: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000007F

Your Virtual Box adapter is disabled, is this deliberate? (from the MSINFO32 report)

Quote:




VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter ROOT\NET\0000 This device is disabled.




Which virtual machine clients do you have installed on your system? I can't find any in the Program Groups section of MSINFO32.

Anyhow, please remove the current virtual machine software. Then install a freshly downloaded copy. If you still get BSOD's in the virtual machines, delete the virtual machines and reinstall them on the virtual machine clients.


Also, please remove these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:

Quote:




How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.




- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.html
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html

Here's the older drivers. Please pay particular attention to any dated 2007 or earlier and the VMNetSrv.sys driver:

Hello,
There have been many problems since installing W8 from the Shutdown and Restart button being unresponsive to USB 3.0 failures to nvidia driver issues.

Anyhow, I've had numerous BSOD since upgrading from W7 Pro, so I did a clean install of Win 8 Pro afterwards. But now I've encountered another recent issue, a drive power state failure. The problem occurred when I was removing my USB 3.0 PCI card and dusting off any dirt because I've come to believe the card is dead (device manager shows a yellow ! beside Renesas usb 3.0 xHCI). I booted the computer and when I snapped the side plate back on to the case I get the error.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:BSOD, drive power state failure

Welcome
It takes several BSODs to ascertain the definitive cause of your problem. You have given us one report and it mentions a driver. It is a Microsoft Driver and not the true cause. After a few more BSODs report again.

My Mother was trying to plug in her iphone into her laptop a few days ago. Her laptop is HP DV7-12?? (sorry I don't know the full numbers since I'm not at my parents house anymore).

She has a Logitech tackball mouse plugged in so I unplugged it. Well even trying the other two usb hubs doesn't work. After that, I plugged in the logitech mouse back into the same usb.. It didn't work..

After that I tried powering down the laptop. but after 13m (ruffly), it bsod with a drive power state failure. with a 9f problem..

I've googled and they've told me about looking at the minidump and from that it would show what was wrong.. I don't know how to read it, and nor do I have the debugging tool.

So, I was wondering if someone could read it and help me with the problem.

system specs for her laptop is
win vista 64bit prem.
6gb ram,
intel cpu 2.2ghz
Nvidia 9600m GT

I've ran in safe mode and everything works like a charm, but in windows.. I have to make sure it's plugged in before I boot into vista for it to work.


Thank You

This morning didn't start well for me. It had the following events.

1) Volume wouldn't work.
2) Volume Mixer freezes/not responding when trying to move the volume slider
3) Device Manager Froze when messing with the audio section
4) Windows said there were updates and it needed to be restarted, when updates supposedly finished the computer "Restarted" and it say on the restarting screen for about 5 minutes then it BSoD's

The following is the files that you guys require. Also I have no AV just Defender and Windows Firewall. In the past in Windows 7 "AMD High Definition Audio" froze my volume control so I had to disable that, in this case it did NOT help.

NOTE: I do not have an SSD nor do I put it into sleep. I am also dual booting windows 7 and 8. Although in the past it BSoD'd when it was only windows 8.

Also last night I installed "BlackX" software, it's a hotswap dock with a USB cable that you can just plop a HDD in and press the power button and view the files on the drive.

I also looked up the BIOS for my motherboard, and this was on the download page:

It says windows 8 ready, but I don't know if it was already Windows 8 ready or that's the NEW drivers. I don't know how to check the date of my BIOS nor does it specify a date for the supposed new BIOS on their site.

I am also on Windows 8.1, I have connections. I also have no sound, not sure why.

This has been the first crash I've gotten in ages. Basically I was just playing New Vegas on my computer, and the game randomly locked up during normal gameplay and gave me that error. I uploaded the crash dump file
http://www.mediafire.com/?sidtlnt7tixrf00
but not sure what was the cause of the issue.
Also, I tried using readyboost today for the first time in a while, that may have been the issue because I'm unsure about my memory card reader driver for 7.

A:Drive Power State Failure BSOD

Please visit the PC Manufacturer's website and download/install the most recent version of the Media Card Reader drivers for Win7 and your system. The BSOD points to o2sdx64.sys - a component of your Memory Card Reader driver by O2Micro.

I would suggest you to turn on USB selective suspense, to see if it is caused by the driver or the hardware itself.
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

► If there any devices attached in the USB ports (other than keyboard and mouse), remove those and see if the situation changes.

► And, while getting windows updates, get all the updates. Your Default Hub Driver for USB is very old, compared to the other few drivers. So the chance of incompatibility is there.

Hi everyone,

I am using a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6025 laptop running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, 4GB RAM, Nvidia 310M graphics card.

Things have been working well for a couple of months until yesterday, after I installed a Western Digital Mybook World Edition (1TB) and the most recent Windows updates. After these installations, I have been having 2 problems:

1.) First thing I noticed is that shutdown takes forever, and ends with a BSOD with DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE message.

2.) Secondly, none of my USB devices are being recognized anymore. Sometimes when I have these devices plugged BEFORE powering Windows on they get recognized properly, but if I plug any USB devices after Windows loads I do not get any recognition at all.

I've tried updating to the latest video drivers, BIOS, and uninstalling the programs that came with the WD drive (MioNet and WD Anywhere Backup) but the problems haven't gone away.

Analyzing the memory dump led to this message:

Lately my 1.5 year old ASUS CM6870 Desktop running Win8.1 started to give me the BSOD with the following two error messages: Page Fault in Non_Page Area; and Drive Power State Failure. Occasionally I will get the sudden BSOD and this B stands for Black with no cursor or message showing. In about 10 seconds the monitor will display a message saying it is going into inactive mode. I pressed the desktop power button, the system just shut down. Two days ago at log off Windows was doing update and at 30%, everything was frozen. Left it on the whole night, same screen the next morning. Need to depress the power button to shut down the system although Windows said I can't shut down the PC while it's doing an update. That's about the symptoms I can recap for now. Zip file attached as instructed. Thanks.

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:

Code:
btwl2cap btwl2cap.sys Fri Apr 03 19:28:45 2009 (49D6A9BD)
Broadcom Bluetooth L2CAP Service. Please download and install fresh update of it


Code:
RimSerial_AMD64 RimSerial_AMD64.sys Mon Nov 24 11:01:01 2008 (492ADDCD)
Virtual Serial Port driver for Blackberry. This need to be updated as soon as possible

Hi everyone. This is my first post on the forum, so I really appreciate any help that anyone may be able to offer. I have been receiving a drive state power failure error since clean installing Windows 8 on my system. I suspect it may be a bad driver or something, but I am not sure. I already set my system to not hibernate or sleep and I tried updating my BIOS and removing a third-party Spyware protection program, but the error occurred again. I followed the instructions and have attached my memory dump information.

Thanks again for your help!

A:Drive Power State Failure.. not sure why!

The minidumps seem to be pointing at the file: pci.sys which is the NT Plug and Play PCI Enumerator:

Driver Reference Table - pci.sys

This file could be corrupt so make sure you download the latest manufacturers chipset motherboard drivers for Windows 8 64bit:

ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

Also make sure you have all the Windows 8 updates until you can no longer be updated.

I have also found two drivers that you might consider updating or un-installing/removing if un-needed:

HECIx64.sys - Intel Management Engine Interface: Driver Reference Table - HECIx64.sys
P17.sys - Creative SB Audigy LS: Driver Reference Table - P17.sys

A:BSOD Power state driver

3 of the 5 BSOD's blame o2sdx64.sys - a component of your O2Micro Integrated MMC/SD controller.

Please download a fresh copy of the driver for the SD card reader from the Toshiba support website ( http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/t.../jsp/home.jsp# )
Then uninstall the one currently installed on your system.
Then install the freshly downloaded driver and check for further BSOD's.

Also, please remove these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall/remove:

Quote:




How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- uninstall all ATI stuff from your system using Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program

So I tossed Windows 7 x64 RC onto my computer to give it a shot, and it runs really well--quite pleased with the progress made so far with Windows (actually brought me back from the dark side of OSX86 after I switched from Vista, which we won't get into, as it's not the time or the place).

In any event, lately (in the past couple of days) I've been getting random BSODs which usually happen when I'm not around the computer (either sleeping, or out doing other things or what have you), and I get this from the "More Info" on the "Windows has recovered from an unexpected error".

If you dont find any feasible update, better you disable the card reader in Device Manager. Otherwise the BSODs will continue to occur.

Hello,

Every since I had Telus Internet installed, my computer keeps giving me a BSOD when it goes to sleep. It's a Driver_Power_State_Failure ... 0x0000009F.

I don't get this with Shaw internet, only with Telus (I also have Optik TV on the same network). I still have both providers, and the computer is stable with shaw, but not with Telus.

I can eliminate the error by switching the Power Options so the hard drives "Never" turn off ... but I'm not sure what affect this has on the computer.

PS I can't seem to run the SF Diagnostic Tool in Administrative mode. it says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item."

A:BSOD power state failure

There's not a whole bunch of information in the dump file (that's why we need the SF Diagnostic Tool files). Without that we'll need, at a minimum, your COMPLETE complete system specs and the report from running MSINFO32.exe.

The error blames hardware - so it can be either a problem with your hardware or with a driver.
The driver involved probably is nvhda64v.sys - a component of your nVidia HDMI audio drivers

You also have other nVidia drivers that are older - so I'd suggest updating your nVidia chipset and video drivers directly from the nVidia website: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
Here's the older drivers:

This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.

Rather than your traditional *9F bug check that contains the blocked IRP address of the driver in the 4th parameter that's causing the bug check, we instead of a LOCK.

We can't really use extensions that go in-depth to locks on Minidumps, so we'll need to use a bit of detective work and likely the use of Driver Verifier to help us out.

Woke up one day a couple weeks ago to find my laptop's onboard fan screaming. I opened the laptop to find a lovely BSOD awaiting me. All I caught before I killed the power to the machine was the term "power state failure". I'm not sure what happened, and I'm not too concerned about it now, but I'd very much like to know exactly what happened.

Hi,

The dump you've attached mentions memory corruption (most likely driver related until shown otherwise), although it also mentions nusb3hub.sys (NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver). It's well known to cause BSODs. You can remove it yourself, or you can update it here. Choice is yours.

Hi Folks,

1st ... thanks for being there and your efforts.

This bug has been driving me mad now for some time and I am unable to clear it myself.

My system is a roll your own running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 from Day 1 (about 18 months ago) on an original Retail load. A complete hardware profile is included in the attachments (via Belarc Advisor). The C drive is a 128 GB Kingston SSD.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the back end of this problem as well as your diagnosis.


many many thanks in advance

There is only 1 dump in the`upload is the PC set to overwrite the previous dumps?
The key is to look for patterns in the dumps, that's hard to do on a single dump but there is some interesting things here

It appears you have a AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 645 Processor
But Windows is reporting Windows 7 Kernel Version 7601 (Service Pack 1) MP (3 procs) Free x64 the 3 procs part would mean 3 cores, in task manager on the performance tab how many CPU graphs are displayed 3 or 4?

A:BSOD Power State Failure

The BSOD is caused by LSI Adapter, SAS2 2008 Falcon (c:\windows\system32\drivers\lsi_sas2.sys). And the driver is very old, of 2009.

I am totally against using third party storport drivers, but disabling it may need a clean install. In that case, your first try should be updating it from Download Search.

Also, you need to uninstall Virtual CloneDrive.

Let us know the results.

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.

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.

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".

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

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.

Sometimes when I restart / shut down my computer, it is turning off for few minutes (10 - 20m) and then I can see BSOD.
Last one was with Driver Power State Failure message - 011510-17128-01.zip minidump.
I have also few more minidumps - Minidump.zip (but I think almost all are with the same message)
I don?t know how to read it, so please, can someone check it and help me?

Thank you very much for help

A:Driver Power State Failure BSOD

Most probably this is due to your Deterministic Network Enhancer Miniport or Cisco Systems VPN Client (dne2000.sys). Also, please note that the dne2000.sys file is listed below as being older. Also, this could be due to the other, network related drivers in the list below.

Please:
- download a new copy of the Win7 drivers for the Cisco VPN Client device
- uninstall the current copy from your system.
- install the freshly downloaded copy
- wait for further BSOD's.

Also, Please update or remove these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager. Please use the following instructions to locate the most current drivers:





Quote:
How To Find Updated Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.


- some driver links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html

Here's the older drivers:

Verifier won't necessarily pop up a BSOD immediately on reboot - it depends on what the offending driver is doing as to when it'll BSOD.

First off, here's the info that I have on SSD's:

Quote:




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
- 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. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard)
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to swtich controllers also.-
Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.

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.

Summary of the BSOD's:

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please upload your msinfo32.nfo file. To get this: Start Menu -> Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box -> When it opens, go to File, Save -> Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember -> Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info -> Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder -> Upload the .zip file here.

The BSOD seems to be cause by HotSpot shield driver and Symantec/Norton seems to be contributing to it. (FYI, Norton is a frequent cause of BSOD-s.) I would suggest you to uninstall Norton and see if the problem persists, replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.
Norton Removal Tool
Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:-
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
Malwarebytes - The Free version
Good and Free system security combination.
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

I updated my HP Pavilion from Vista to Win 7 and since then have experienced a Driver Power State failure crash on a regular basis.

System Specs are: 3 GB Ram, 32 OS, Intel Quad Core 2.3 ghz

I have hopefully attached the dump files that will help in diagnosing the problem.

Any help would be truly appreciated! Thanks!!!
