Q: driver power state failure first day of use new laptop

Hey guys!
I am hoping someone can help me.. I am going to upload the mini dump files that have been saved. I just got this new laptop today and have since had about 10 blue screens of death. I have not installed anything on this new computer besides Firefox. I am hoping that somebody can help me! thank you.

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.

Please update this card reader driver to alleviate your issues:

Code:

Also good to do:

I also noticed many older drivers. Please visit ATI's website to get the latest video card driver.

So about a month and a half ago I bought myself a new MSI Laptop, and in the past 3 weeks I've had 5 Driver Power State Failure (DPSF) BSOD's. I've searched around but I'm not confident enough when it comes to BSOD's to actually do anything without first getting some advice for my particular problem.All I have really been able to tell from this is that the error always occurs at the same location, ntoskrnl.exe (+7cc40), which, being a critical part of the OS, I assume is a very bad thing.

A:Driver Power State Failure - New MSI Laptop

I would try...downloading (from MSI website)...chipset and wireless drivers for your system...then removing the current drivers via Device Manager, followed by installation of the new ones.

Or...if you have drivers CD with your system, you can use that, rather than downloading drivers from MSI website.

From day one when I opened up this laptop it was crashing. I've had the RAM replaced, the SSD (twice), factory reset, MOBO replaced, and still the same intermittent crashing. The company I bought this from "tried" to fix it but couldn't ever get anywhere. This has been a 2 year P.I.T.A. for me and I'm finally coming to you guys because the company I bought this from has informed me that my warranty is up and I will have to start paying for their "help". I thought that was comical. Nonetheless. Here I am. I need help. Not sure where to start because I've never been able to pinpoint the cause. Most of the time the BSOD reads "Driver State Power Failure". I've personally updated all of my drivers, chipset, BIOS, graphics card, etc. The vendor has also done the same. To no avail.

Let me know what I can do to help someone diagnose this for me.

A:New Laptop - BSOD - Driver Power State Failure

It sounds like you have an ASUS ROG G551JW laptop which originally came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
You say you bought it new and had problems with it the very first day of use, so I'm surprised you didn't return it for another one instead of having hardware replaced in it for the past 2 years.

There are several links here that you can read about "driver power state failure" in Windows 10.

Dear forummers,

Recently, I've been heving some BSOD'S wen putting my GE70-i550M287FD to sleep mode or hibernation. The NB just stays just active with a black screen for a while, only to end up in a BSOD eventually.
It gives me always the same BSOD, so I figured it would be caused by a single error. However, I haven't been able to detect and fix it up until now. I hoped that some of you might have dealt with it before or know how to deal with it.

The only hardware I've got plugged is the mouse. I have't been able to test if I got the same error without the mouse plugged. Also, this BSOD ONLY occures when going into hibernation/sleep mode.

This is a photo from the BSOD I keep getting once a week/2 weeks or so.

I have read something about minidump files. How do I open them and do they contain any necessary information needed to fix this error?

Thank you in advance!

This error has been happening for 80% of the time when my laptop is shutting down or restarting. It started few days ago when I removed everything and reinstalled windows. I then refreshed my laptop couple of times but the problem is still persisted. I updated windows and all devices are up to date. Restarts are also slow when it does restart properly.

When I tried updating to windows 8.1, it would stop at "setting up 82%" and had to hold the power button to turn off the laptop couple times.

Hi,

I'm getting frequent random BSOD Power_Driver_State_Failure on my ASUS G551JM Laptop (https://asus.com/support/Download/3/...RbVetG02i5/41/) It happens while plugged in and running off battery but more frequently on battery power. It usually happens within 30 minutes of powering on the laptop or waking it up from sleep/hibernate. It primarily happens after logging into windows but on rare occasion will blue screen prior.

I've updated drivers from Asus and chipset manufacturers websites: intel rapid storage driver, Intel MEI driver, Intel INF driver, Intel wifi and bluetooth drivers, clean installed nvidia gtx 860m drivers. I tried to update intel HD graphics drivers but got this error message:
Computer Manufacturer Graphics Driver Detected. Your computer manufacturer customizes the drivers that run Intel components on your machine. You might lose functions and cause other technical issues by installing the Intel drivers.
Windows updates are up-to-date and no virus or malware.

I recently have been getting blue shutdown screens on my laptop. I will give you plenty of information about my computer. I put all the information about the Blue screen dump files and my System Information file in an attachment. I hope this helps. I recently found out you could save the System Information file as a text and also as an .exe. This should help diagnose the problem! This is how it happens, I will be using my computer and then the computer will become very slow and unresponsive. It is not completely unresponsive but it will be so slow that I cannot use it, then after about 3 minutes of this slow unresponsiveness the blue screen will show up and say driver power state failure and shutdown. I recently formatted the computer because it had been doing this before so I restored it back to factory defaults about one month ago.

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

Hey, I got some BSOD problems. Do you got time & experience to help me?

I got Windows 8 at the moment, I will install 8.1 shortly. Had 8.1 before i re-installed OS when the first BSOD showed up, so I doubt that 8.1 will fix things completely.

My problems ATM!

- Driver Power State Failure
- Video TDR Failiure (nvlddmkm.sys)
- Screen freezes at start up or when I get to the desktop
- Have to Disable my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M to use the CPU (Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Got two other kinds of BSOD before I re-installed windows but don't remember what they said, I just felt like "Hey I need to re-install my OS anyways so w/e". But apparently that didn't solve the problems.

I also gained "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 340.52 stopped working While playing CS:GO" but that was before I re-installed windows. And now to use my CPU I need to go into Device Manager and shutdown my NVIDIA card to be able to use the CPU and use the Intel card instead. If I don't shut it down my CPU will freeze the screen for days, til I restart or I get a BSOD.

I will buy a can of air and open up my laptop and blow some dust away, perhaps that could help? Perhaps the NVIDIA card is burned/broken and I have to buy a new PC?

I've tried a few different driver for my NVIDIA card also, nothing works.

I'm no computer expert and thats why I'm here begging for help, so if someone could help me out here I would appreci... Read more

A:Driver Power State Failure

Have the same laptop and same problem. As far as I can tell it is due to a bad SD card reader driver. I downloaded the "Debugging Tools for Windows x64" from here and used it to load the memory dump file located in "C:\WINDOWS\Minidump". You can follow the description here on how to do this. The debugger identified the file "o2sdx64.sys" as the culprit so I went over to toshiba here and downloaded the latest SD reader driver. The old version of this file was identified by the device manager as 2.0.2.909 and after updating was 2.0.2.915.

I have not tested this for long but so far no BSOD. I did notice this error seemed to occur often when I was swapping files off the SD card I am hopful.

Hope this helps.

By the way I am running Vista x64

So I have an Asus ROG laptop and I've recently started having some issues with it, one of them being this driver state power failure bsod. Its happened 3 times now in the past two weeks.

I haven't exactly nailed down what causes it, but I've done some research and most places suggest updating drivers and BIOS to fix it.

The first issue I'm having with this is that I'm unable to update my BIOS. I've got the file downloaded from the Asus website, I put it on a flash drive and tried to use the EZ Flash 3 utility to update the BIOS but it doesn't see the flash drive. In fact it doesn't see any drive at all except for one 256 MB partition on the main hard drive (laptop has an SSD and 2nd hard drive for storage). I've tried formatting the drive in FAT32 as old documentation suggested it might need that but still no luck. I've tried several flash drives and no luck. I read that USB 3.0 might be the problem, but the laptop only has 3.0 ports. So not sure what I can do about that if that is the actual problem.

Some other additional information, a few days ago I noticed my power brick for charging the laptop got extremely hot as it was under some blankets and such. How long that was going on I don't know. Could the charger be the problem? When it BSOD'd a couple hours ago it was shortly after I unplugged it (30 seconds-ish). But this did crash before I noticed the power brick issue so I don't know if its been a thing for that long or not.

A:Win 10 Driver State Power Failure

Hi. . .

I definitely need the minidumps to see if they yield any clues. Most 0x9f bugckeck BSODs (DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE) that I see typically involve networking drivers. But not all of them.

The title of the 0x9f BSOD is misleading and confusing. It has nothing to do with power bricks getting too hot because of blankets; nor the system being unplugged and running on battery power; probably not the video driver -- but I have seen video drivers involved in 0x9f BSODs.

Hopefully the memory dump(s) will tell us the driver that is responsible for your BSODs - assuming that your BSODs are software related and not the result of hardware failure.

Run the app in these instructions. It will copy the dump(s) and generate about 25 system reports that are helpful to me.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista

However, before you run the BSOD Instructions app, I want you to run Driver Verifier first -

Driver Verifier - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista (BSOD-related)

Let it run in the background for at least 24 hours. If a BSOD occurs while running Driver Verifier, then run the BSOD Sysnative/jcgriff2 app (per step 1) and attach the zip file to your next post. If no BSODs after 24 hours, then run the BSOD app.

The dumps are filled with a lot of spacing and nulls, so they compress greatly. A 1 GB "mini dump" is more the norm these days as each version of Windows adds more to the dumps to help the BSOD A... Read more

For some reason whenever i do something that uses my graphics card i get a BSOD. I disabled it to confirm that it was indeed causing me issues.

Ive reflashed the bios, updated the driver, rolled it back and even did a complete reinstall to factory settings.

I upgraded to Windows 10 as well to see if it would fix the issue but it has not done anything.

The graphics card is a GTX 670m.

Edit: Sometimes i will get the BSOD doing normal things such as browsing or even being on the desktop.

The latest dump indicates a problem with nvlddmkm.sys:

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys

The driver is old: Tue Aug 28 03:52:38 2012

According to the output of dxdiag, you have a Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000.
You also have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M but it doesn't appear to be the active video card. Update that driver to the latest WHQL version which is 368.39.

Looks like the Intel is onboard and the Nvidia is a PCI-E card.

A couple of days ago I did a Windows 10 64-bit "clean install" on my Dell Inspiron 1564 Laptop, and it has been running well, basically. However, I did experience a Driver Power State Failure on startup today. It immediately reached 100% complete in collecting error info, but did not restart after (as it said it would). I waited for approximately 10 minutes more and then manually rebooted. It came up fine.

Going forward, I am not sure what I should be doing to correct the situation. If someone has recommendations, I would be appreciative.

By "clean install", I mean I upgraded from 7 to 10 - then I did a computer recovery - reset this pc, at which time I told it to remove all my personal files and applications. I think I have 4 GB of ram, but quite frankly, the system information screen has changed; and even digging into the Device Manager information leaves me no less confused about what is installed. So I hope this is enough of the basics for someone to give me a basic next step.

Thank you,

Now when I hit the power button I get NO VIDEO OUTPUT at all, so I can't even turn it on. I was thinking about trying to turn it on w/o a monitor and get in over the network to get the dump files but being as I have no video I can't logon so it won't get to the homegroup for me to do that. Unfortunately this is all the information I have.

Hi All

New to forum and relatively useless with computers beyond using simple programs.

Recently began experiencing extended shutdown and startup times, started with 5-10 minutes and kept getting longer. Was told that after a few years and two kids downloading everything they clicked on it was probably due to alot of extra junk running. So I saved everything I needed and endevoured to reload the OS (Vista Home Premium 32bit), just pop in the disk and follow the instruction they said, "It's easy" they said.

Everything seemed to progress nicely, followed the prompts, windows will restart several times etc etc.

Runs for approx 48 hours on the scrolling bar then get:

Driver Power State Failure
Stop: 0x0000009F (0x00000003, 0x828EE908, 0x828EE908, 0xC4915340)

Attempted restarts to safe mode or to command prompt are unsuccessful as it is disabled during windows reload

I've read through several of the previous DPSF threads and everyone is asked for a "minidump", please don't ask unless you know a psychic that can commune with my laptop as it will not advanced to any state other than BSOD at this point.

The last two days my Acer Extensa 5420 Laptop will just go to a blue screen and it will state "Driver_Power_State_Failure" and begin dumping physical memory. Once it's done that, it will restart and it will take over 30 minutes sometimes to get Windows Vista to come back on. The green "loading" bar will come on, and then a black screen with no cursor or anything will stay on for all that time. Sometimes I have to restart it or do a hard shut down and start it for it to EVENTUALLY come back up.
I checked the updates, and everything except a Windows Live Essentials is already updated.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I run an online business, and if I don't have this computer, I have no income.
