BSOD Driver Power State Failure

Q: BSOD Driver Power State Failure

I started getting a BSOD almost every night after installing a new video card. It's an AMD APU that I was running with on-board graphics, and I just put in a GeForce 8800GT. I can't figure out what driver is causing it, as far as I know I'm running the latest and most appropriate driver for the card. Attaching the minidump files.

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 Driver Power State Failure

Hi shhaggy,

The mini-dump exhibits 'ntsokrnl.exe' error that may indicate software issues. As per my experience, a fresh 'Windows reinstall' has been most useful. However, you may also try the following steps:

1. Reinstall 'Video Card' drivers
Click 'Start' and type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search programs & files' > Tap 'Enter' > Expand 'Display Adapters > Right click & uninstall 'GeForce 8800GT' (Confirm software install if prompted) > Follow through with the uninstall and restart the system > Click Drivers | GeForce to run 'Auto-detect GPU Utility' > Download and install the suggested driver > Restart system and check results

2. If the issue persists, run 'System File Checker tool' to see if that works: Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

3. If you still experience issues, try 'Factory Reset' (If a healthy recovery image is available)
If a healthy 'Recovery Image' is available (on the hard drive or on an external media), you may restore the system back to known-good settings. This step may not always work; you may give it a shot before doing a 'fresh Windows Reinstall'.

Note: 'Factory Image Restore/Operating System Reinstall' will lead to data-loss; please backup the data on an external media before attempting the restore options.

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

Hi all, I've been receiving a Driver Power State Failure BSOD after shutting down/restarting my machine since yesterday. I just installed the Windows 7 RC1. My shutdown is taking around 20 minutes before crashing with the BSOD. How do I find out what is causing the error and fix it? Should I post my minidump? Thanks.

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...

iaStor Fri Jul 13 08:59:22 2007

... and get rid of this one:

SiWinAcc Tue Nov 02 06:21:31 2004

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.

Hi All

Being the non-technical, geekless person I am, I would certainly very much appreciate your assistance in ascertaining why I have just experienced a BSOD during Shutdown which took over half-an-hour.

My Windows 7 Ultimate x64 was working perfectly up until now and I am at a total loss as to why this has occurred.

I have attached a Crash Report courtesy of NirSoft's BlueScreenView software program.

Thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter.

According to what you attached in the screenshot, it appears that one of your services failed to stop or shut down, causing the system to go in to a infinite loop that tried to kill that process.

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!

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

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 know little about computers but I can follow directions well.

This is my computer

OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium , Service Pack 2, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 6
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 4089 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS , 1024 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 295242 MB, Free - 181383 MB;
Motherboard: Gateway , IMV , Not Applicable , INVALID
Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

It has been giving me the blue screen of death at least daily for over a week usually around 8 pm but it does like to mix things up and do it at other times. It was doing this same kind of thing this past march and I reformated which fixed the problem. However I would rather not do that again. I did a system restore back to the begining of the month but that didn't help.

Based on Blue screen viewer most of my prolems have been caused by ntoskrnl.exe. I have attached JPEGs of what it shows

Hi,
recently my laptop (Acer 5655G-9471) started showing me BSODs while Shutting down. After about 10-15 minutes of showing me "Shutting down...", it fails and shows me DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Not sure what the error code was but I'll write that down when it happens the next time. Attached is a SF Diagnostic dump.

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.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

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 already fixed the 100% Disk usage on uTorrent but I ddnt know why I got the driver irql not less or equal tcpip.sys
Im using uTorrent to download PSO2(Phantasy Star Online 2) so it's legal the torrent came from their website

A:DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE BSOD

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.

So I'm getting the driver state power failure BSOD as well. This computer used to be Vista, about a month ago I put Windows 7 on here. It worked great for like 3 weeks but now its giving me this BSOD every 1-2 days, starting May 7th. It happens randomly - the only constant is that I've had firefox open but I don't know if that really has anything to do with it.

I did look into this before posting here, but it seems like basically everybody's is for different reasons so I'm not sure what to do.

I've attached the latest memory dump file from today.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

OS: Win7 Pro-N x64 SP1. I do not know if there was ever another OS on this machine.

Age of system unknown. CPU is an Intel Core2 Quad Q9450, 2.66GHz. I have not reinstalled the OS, and it is unknown when the OS was last installed/repaired/reinstalled. Video card is currently an NVidia GeForce 8400 GS; it used to be an ATI Radeon HD 3650, but that board gave out and was replaced a few months before this problem started happening. MB is an Intel chipset, I don't recall the specific make/model. The computer is a custom build, so no overall manufacturer.

I seem to have a common problem; Windows 7 will take a very long time (10-20 minutes) to shut down or restart, and will eventually fail with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAIL BSOD. After the dump, Windows starts right back up and shows the domain login screen. After entering credentials, there is another long wait before the desktop displays.

Hey all, I'm new here, with a BSOD problem.

I have a laptop, HP dv6t Select Edition (LT070AV), I'm running Windows 7 x64 Home Premium, SP1 (came pre-installed). Just got the laptop late November, haven't reinstalled the OS, yet. The CPU is an Intel i5-2410M @ 2.3Ghz, and I have Intel HD Graphics (Integrated). The BSOD is DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE, and this is probably the third time this has happened to this computer. This happened when I told the laptop to go to sleep, and the screen turned off, but the light around the mousepad, and the power button light were still on. I left the house, and came back to a BSOD. The 'not going to sleep' thing has happened many more times, but I usually just lose patience after about 3 minutes and force-shutdown. Any help would be appreciated! The zipped "Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2" folder is attached.

A:BSOD (DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE)

I see that memory is being corrupted, but it's always the same 4 bits and it's always the same process. While I can't understand exactly what would cause it to corrupt those 4 bits exactly, I do have an idea that it might be your Broadcom Bluetooth driver. I see it's dated July 2010 so you'll want to go to the HP site and download any potential update for it that's present there. Note that it may be an item that's integrated into the motherboard, so if you can't find a bluetooth driver, look for chipset drivers instead.

Morning, all.

I could use a bit of help--I've been having a number of BSODs lately, and they always relate to a driver power state failure. Doing my own research has not really been as productive as I'd like.

Of note: this really only happens when I open the laptop back up after leaving it alone for some hours (when I wake up, and occasionally when I get back from work). The computer will run fine for about 5-10 minutes, and then I get a BSOD. I'm running Vista, SP2, on a Dell Inspiron 1525--haven't really had any major problems with this before.

I'm attaching a zip of the minidump and the msinfo32 file as I saw requested in another thread. Many thanks for any help!

Hello,

I am new to this forum, which I found online while searching for a fix to a BSOD I'm repeatedly having. I am hoping someone could help me out because it is getting extremely frustrating. The PC is used as a dedicated media center. So having the system go down multiple times during a movie is not fun at all.

I first noticed a problem with Win 7 about 10 or so days ago. The OS seemed to be slower than normal when logging on, but no issues other than that. Shortly thereafter when I would switch my TV input to my PC I was continually getting the login screen. I did a little research and it was suggested to change the Windows option to not restart on failure, which I did.

After making that change I noticed a repeated BSOD, with a Driver_Power_State_Failure message. The time varies on how long it will take before I get the crash, but it happens with certainty right now. Windows is also extremely slow logging in, and completely crashes after initial login frequently as well.

The only change that I can pinpoint is that I used a SATA to USB HDD converter to backup a hard drive. Well, attempted to backup. I cannot complete this due to system crashes. Also, I was having repeated system crashes with a portable HDD plugged in, and after unplugging it the system started on the next boot. This could be a coincidence, but I have not troubleshooted that further.

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
? Dual graphics card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000/NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
? 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.

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.

Hi everyone, have had a huge amount of help from this website in the past and am wondering if anyone can help.

I have a year old Windows 7 Acer Laptop. Has been performing fine, but have had a couple of Blue Screens in the past week, one of which was a "Driver Power State Failure".

Have attached the minidump files to this message. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jon

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.

Intermittently I get this blue screen. The latest crash occurred as I was typing so i don't think it has anything to do with sleep mode as someone suggested.

I have not installed anything lately other than adobe photoshop and lightroom updates.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have windows 8 installed on my home computer. The computer keeps shutting down on it's own and saying "Driver Power State Failure". Can someone look at my BSOD Minidumpfiles and give me an idea of what could be causing this problem. I have tried to save the minidump files into a zip file, but it brings up an error not allowing me to do this. Hopefully the text file from Blue Screen view is enough to figure this out. Thanks.

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.
