Q: BSOD: Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe 0x9F

Hello,

I've been having bsod's for a while ever since I disabled the Automatic Restart. I'm going to say that I figure it might have something to do with my Toshiba external hdd but I hope I can get a fix for this. I've spent days researching online - I've tried to find if I had any drivers to update by going to my Device Manager but all "update driver" results I get are the same: they are up to date.

My zipped minidump files: http://sdrv.ms/YPs4lS

Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

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 and welcome to the forums.

Seems like a core Kernel level issue.

Things to do:

Run System File Checker to verify/repair the integrity of system files.
Full tutorial here: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Uninstall COMODO Internet Security and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows
Update it and run a full scan.

Go to Start>Run
Type MSCONFIG and press Enter.
Click on Startup tab, now click on Disable All.
Click Apply and OK. Reboot the system.

In addition, run chkdsk /f to repair corrupt hard drive sectors.
Full tutorial here: Disk Check

If all of the above fails, as a test, I'd suggest you to Enable Driver Verifier to find out which driver/software is causing the BSOD. Once you enable it, expect some frequent BSODs. After 24 hrs, disable the Driver Verifier and re-upload the dump files for analysis.

Let us know if it works.

A:Windows 7 Pro: Driver Power State Failure ntoskrnl.exe 0x9F

from the research Ive done previously etc; I do believe the ntoskrnl.exe possibly leads to ram issue. I would test the ram by running memtest86+ from the following link: its best to let it run overnight if possible and to run it several times to make certain it shows accurate results as sometimes errors wont show up right away. Here is the link to that:

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

If you get any errors from the test; then its likely you have one or more bad ram sticks

I have a HP8530P with Windows 7 professional 32bit that regularly gives a BSOD.
When I analyze the dump file it says Driver Power State Failure and that something is wrong with the usbhub.sys.

I reinstalled the chipset drivers and all other drivers to be on the safe side. But it did not help.
I then reinstalled Windows but the problem just came back.

Does anyone have an idea to what could be the cause?

I put the dump file in this zip file (The SF diagnostic tool mentioned here does not work on my computer)

A:HP8530p Regular BSOD 0x9f Driver Power State Failure

Do you have a card reader or card reader plus USB network adapter connected there?

The dump showed a symbol error there, so I could not see it properly, but I can say you that if what I am saying id true, check the card, what it contains.

Update the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver: from Ethernet NIC Driver Downloads | Broadcom.

Disable USB selective suspense: USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

Check for any rootkit: Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

If it is a card reader only, remove it. If it is a card reader plus network adapter, remove the memory chip from it.

Hey, my desktop computer keeps freezing here and there. I have a bad feeling it happens when working with my data HDD (not a system one). Some applications freeze and some not, I can restart, but it gets stuck when "Turning off" .. after few mins I get BSOD.

I've tried to boot up with driver Verifier and it freezes right after login screen .. no BSOD (within 30 mins).

The only thing I know from minidump is that it causes ntoskrnl.exe

Would someone help me to identify my problem?

Thanks in advance.

sptd.sys is the most well known causes of a crash in windows 7. There are some technical reason behind it is that much crash prone. It is a paer of Daemon tools, so better you uninstall Daemon Tools.

Also free up the startup.

Hello guys,
I tried resolving this issue by myself, but I can't figure it out. I'm getting BSOD on my new laptop. The laptop is brand new, I bought it about one month ago. It came with the default linux OS installed by the manufacturer, but I did a format and I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Machine specs:
Acer Aspire V3-771G 736b4G75Maii
CPU: Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz
GPU: nVidia GeForce GT 640M 2GB DDR3 memory
RAM: 1x 4GB DDR3
HDD: 750 GB Toshiba

I got BSOD 3 times, every time I was browsing the internet using Mozilla Firefox. First couple of times I was on facebook checking some pictures and the 3rd time I was on forums looking for a solution to this problem. The BSOD happened when the laptop was on high performance settings, but i can't remember if it was plugged in or not.

As i said, the laptop is 1 month old, but it came with a broken speaker so it was sent to the service where they replaced the entire front cover. They said the reason is that the speakers are glued to the front cover so it was not possible to replace only the speakers. Before sending the laptop to the Acer service I did not experienced any BSOD and I used it for like 2-3 weeks, I even did some gaming on it.
The first BSOD occurred last week and the laptop wasn't used until yesterday when it happened again and the last BSOD happened just earlier today.

Hello, my computer has crash 4 times within the past two hours. I believe it has something to do with the Elgato Game Capture HD software I installed on the computer, since it seemed to only happen when I was either using it, or trying to uninstall it.

Been having the occasional blue screen every few hours for the past week or two now, I've been trying to pinpoint exactly which drivers are causing the issue or if it's something more serious. It's a custom built machine and around 18 months old now, so it's not completely unlikely that some of my parts are starting to wear out. (Not overclocking)

Also, I had a hal.dll error associated with the Driver Power State Failure as well, it just didn't fit in the title.

If anyone can give me a hand with this it'd be much appreciated. I've attached the SF files as requested.

I thought I would start a thread to make sure there are no other underlying issues that could be the cause of the BSOD. Attached are the SF Files. Thanks!

Hi MSB117.

The dedicated GPU is totally out!!! Does a restart brings it back?

Yes, a stop 0x9F can do it, based on sleep/hibernation settings and it is often seen for Optimus Technology/Switchable graphics. It is not the first instance.

As the GPU is causing continuous issue over a time, I would suggest you to contract Dell/Alienware servicing center.

Hi!

I recently got a laptop from Scan.co.uk, it's a custom build using the Clevo kit.
I have been having intermittent BSOD's with a Driver Power State Failure message at random times, I can't see a discernible pattern.

It can happen whether on the desktop, chrome or gaming but generally on the desktop during minimal use.
I can play games for around 8 hours without issue but sometimes I'll get the error straight after booting up or whilst shutting down or just doing work in chrome.

I've seen people with similar issues in this forum and have tried to make sure all my drivers are up to date but I'm missing something somewhere

Any help offered would be greatly appreciated

Hello and thanks for letting me post on this awesome forum!!!!

I am fixing a family members computer and it has stumped me. I have tried everything that I can find online related to my problem outside of reinstalling but I think it could be a hardware (power or memory) issue from what i read and a reinstall wouldnt fix it.

Driver_Power_State_Failure

I cannot trigger the BSoD of cue. Ive tried quite a bit, bringing it back from sleep, full load, no load, Skyrim, and different video cards.

I have been using Bluescreenviewer / myeventviewer to give me some incite but I couldn't find anything that would help my particular problem. So i present it to the people that know more then me, the online community. I followed the BSoD posting rules but let me know. Ill be checking back frequently.

Thanks again.

PS this computer is having raid issues. I get "Degraded NVIDIA mirror 931.51G" red flashing error for a couple seconds during boot. I dont know if this is related but BSoD's did not start at exactly the same time, but quite a bit of time after, I am told.

Hi Folks,

I really hope you can help me, I followed the instructions to create the attachement.

What I know so far is that this machine has BSOD'd several times...The last 2 times a ultilty called BlueScreenViewer.exe says it's due to "Driver power state failure" caused by: ntoskrnl.exe

I checked event viewer for the time mentioned 6/17/2012 11:29:02 pm and it says there is system error "source:Bug Check" at that exact time

For anti-virus I have MS Security Essentials. For Spyware, I have Spybot S&D.
I use with Workstation 7 as a study too so it has hosed my VMs which is very disappointing. I would really like to root cause this to continue with confidence...

I know you hear this all the time...but... please help! I don't mind collecting info and checking into things, I am just out of my element a little here.

I looked throug the results of the permon report and it seems clean for the most part.

Thanks in advance,

I apologize in advance if this is a duplicate thread to a problem already solved previously.

Two months ago, I purchased this laptop (Alienware M17x R3) and was met with strange problems some time after owning it. An error code for memory failure, refusal to boot, BSOD with the error of DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Not sure what to do, I didn't do much of anything, except check my RAM chips for contact damage, and a swapping of positions was performed. So far, those particular error messages have not happened again, except for a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. These happen seemingly at random, but occur more frequently when the computer is under graphics stress, such as in a Starcraft 2 match.

I have, per the posting suggestions, attached relevant files.

Thanks.

Hi all,

I was hoping to bring the 'big guns' on this forum to bear on my problem. My friend has an Asus UX32A notebook with Windows 8. To provide some back story (the meat of the problem is after this paragraph if you want to skip)...

It is brand new with hardly anything installed on it besides Norton 2013 and Office. It would freeze about 60 seconds after start up, for a good long while, and it seemed to get worse over time. I have done a LOT of things to it in the last two days - uninstalled Asus bloatware (which was also causing a black screen on startup problem), updated just about every driver and BIOS, disabled fast start up, disabled 'dynamictic' via cmd prompt, disabled all non-Windows services and then progressively enabled them to try to isolate a rogue one. I THINK I might have fixed it (in the end I left 7 services disabled - two Intel Management, Intel Dynamic application, Intel ME service, as well as Wireless PAN, Skype updater and Sony PC companion. I have no idea if it's one of these but the system seems not to freeze now and I have reached the end of my patience anyway). It might seem like too much but it was very difficult because e.g. to test the effect of one change I would have to restart, and the laptop would not restart because of the black screen issue, or would immediately freeze. It was very frustrating and I had to work from safe mode to start with, but now it seems to behave better.

But...

It may be the cause of the crash while using firefox.

Just a question, when the keyboard and mouse was inactive and you got the crash, was the Cyberlink editing program in use? The event log says so, and actually that program failed there.

You should update the nvidia display driver, too.

I hope someone can help been on this problem for a week now.

I have an external synth that conects via usb My problem is when i switch off the nord the usb ports crash and any new connection is not recognised until i restart my computer which when i do hangs on the shutdown page for about 10 minutes the i get bsod with error driver state failure or bad pool header.

I can start my computer then turn on and off the nord with no issues the problem only happens when i use it in cubase 7 as a midi track even if no midi signal is sent to the nord. The problem is when i turn off the nord by the power button the driver disconnects then if i try to reconnect the nord nothing happens in the device manager all usb that are still connected work but any new connection is not seen.

I have done a fresh install of windows 7 64bit updated all drivers for everything & windows updates.

I have tried disconnecting all usb devices and still the same problem. Im not over clocking or under clocking. I have tried a different usb lead, used various usb ports, external powered usb ports.

The drivers i have installed are nord a1 midi, clavia usb 3.02 driver & clavia compostite usb driver.The latest ones.

The units was working fine until about 2 weeks ago where i was able turn the unit on and off using cubase with no problems.

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:

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

A:Driver State Power Failure BSOD

Hello and Welcome !

Seems like lot of issues are going on. First thing i noticed is sptd.sys duplex driver which i well known for BSOD. I would recommend to uninstall it follow this article DuplexSecure - FAQ

Also it looks to me like it's an issue with AiCharger.sys - an Asus program named AiCharger (may also be a part of the Asus AISuite or ASUS Ai Charger). Then uninstall the current copy of the program and install the freshly downloaded copy.

Run a Hardware Diagnostic (Memory and Hard Drive) follow this link for instructions Hardware Diagnostic !! ? Captain Debugger

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.

I got a bluescreen named "Driver Power State Failure" when trying to turn off my computer.

Two days ago, I got the first bluescreen on this computer with "Display Driver", I updated the driver on my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 4850 Series) to see if it fixed the problem. After this first bluescreen it was also a problem turning on the computer: Windows doesn't automatically start, so I have had to go into the BIOS and (Ctr+Alt+Del) to restart for some reason, before I get into the boot menu. From there I have tried starting windows, failing every time, leading to Start Restore (or something, can't remember what it's called) starting, working for a good 10 minutes, restarting computer, and Windows starts loading. After about half an hour, or the time it takes before the screen goes black from inactivity, the login screen appears when I wake the computer. From this state it works normally. However, after waking it from Sleep Mode (keyboard/mouse click) I can't do anything, and after a while Windows shuts down and restarts the computer (to the screen with "Del: Enter Screen F12: Boot Menu")

It's from here the new BSoD came in: I used the power button to try and shut down Windows normally (after the inactivity problem after Sleep Mode), which took about 15-30 minutes with the "Shutting down... Please Wait"-screen, before I got this bluescreen (Driver Power State Failure).
I have now turned the computer off and restarted it. I... Read more

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!
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?
I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.

I'm getting this error when the system goes to a power down state I think. If I leave it on over night next morning I have the BSOD with this error. Not sure what to do about it. I uploaded the info files.

A:BSOD Driver power state failure

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:

Hi I just recently got a BSOD on my laptop DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I'm also guessing this is the reason that my computer seems to not sleep consistently.

Thanks

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!

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:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

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

Hi, all I just clean installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on my Dell Vostro 1310 with 3gb ram, 1.8gHz Core2Duo, and 250gb hd. However I am getting BSOD stating driver power state failures, the computer will power up and work fine for about 20-mins then it will crash like clock work.
I do not have any exclamation marks in the device manager, I have update all my drivers with the latest and greatest Vista 32bit drivers from Dell as that is all they have right not, and I even updated the bios.
I tried to analyze the dump files myself but every time I attempt to install the debugging software it hangs at the progress bar until it becomes unresponsive then eventually crash the system. I have attached a dump file for review, if someone is willing to help me out.
Thanks

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.
