BSOD Driver Power State Failure 3 times in past 2 days

Q: BSOD Driver Power State Failure 3 times in past 2 days

Hello,
 
I have been getting BSOD for the past three days. It seems to be happening during the shutdown process and I believe has to do with a driver to in an inconsistent or invalid power state. I do not know enough technical knowledge to pinpoint the issue nor resolve it.
 
I have attached all the dump files below from the past 3 BSOD events.
 
System Information:
Windows 7 Home Edition
Intel Core i7-3820
16 GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 670
2 Intel SSD in RAID 0
 
I have never had this issue happen before but seems to have started occuring after the last Windows 7 update a couple days ago. Any help fixing the problem 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.)

Anyone can learn to debug an 0x9F bug check with 0x3 as the 1st argument, it's easy. Watch.

Arguments 00000000`00000003 fffffa80`141a8cd0 fffff800`00b9a3d8 fffffa80`16d3a920
Use .bugcheck to dump the string, and copy/paste the 4th argument address (fffffa80`16d3a920) into the command box (kd>). To get specific, the 4th argument address is the blocked IRP, which is the reason the bug check was called.
 
Now with the address, run !irp on it to display the request packet information for the blocked IRP.

Random system restarts/BSOD. Sometimes it happens while the computer is in sleep mode, sometimes it's while I'm actively using it, sometimes I'll just be reading something on the screen and the system is suddenly restarting. This has been happening for years now but has recently gotten worse.

A:BSOD at random times. Recently driver power state failure

Hi,

Try running the Hardware Diagnostics on your computer. If you get any error code, make a note of the error code.

Did you try doing System Restore? If no and if this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest try restoring your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

For System Restore steps, you can refer to the URL mentioned: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/system-restore

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

I am getting these "driver power state failure" crashes with increasing frequency. I suspect it's a driver conflict involving my M-Audio Fast Track Ultra (music recording interface), which is connected via USB.

My computer is an HP 671-340US notebook, bought in June or July 2010, with Windows 7 Home Premium (and a whole bunch of HP bloatware!) already installed. I have eliminated some of the HP crap because it constantly interrupted my work, and shut down my computer right in the middle of what I was doing, if I missed the message balloon. Don't know if that contriubuted to the problem. I updated all the drivers and Win7 yesterday and today. Crashed again this morning. No hardware upgrades; using it the way it came.

I have attached all the system specs and diagnostics reports you requested.

If I missed anything, please let me know.

Hi charlie and welcome.

You are of course correct about M-audio. It is blamed. It may be conflicting with one of the older drivers installed. I would update both M-audio and these old drivers. Some of these drivers including y our raid driver is from as far back as 2005.

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.

I've been experiencing issues with my computer. It tends to blue screen and reads "Driver_POWER_STATE_FAILURE". I've tried to run some scans and diagnostics and even backed up my PC and then rebooted it with factory new settings, but it is still BSOD. I have a dump file, but I cannot post it because it says I do not have permission to open or attach it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Driver Power State Failure - BSOD

You need to follow these directions
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

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.

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.

hi i have hp laptop

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.

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.

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 already fixed the 100% Disk usage on uTorrent but I ddnt know why I got the driver irql not less or equal tcpip.sys

Hello guys,

I have seen lot of topics with the same subject as I have, but as I understand each of them is "special", so I am posting new one.

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?

I have Acer Aspire 3694, Win7

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:

My very recently purchased laptop was showing some problems from last 2 days. It would get stuck at the shutdown screen and then after extended span of time I had to press and hold power key to turn it off. It happened only twice. (And if this may help I tell you I had updated atleast one or the other thing before shutting it down...either through HP Support Assistant or Windows update.

Last night i ran Windows Update and tried to turn off my pc but since updates were being installed it said Windows will shut down once the updates are installed automatically...so i went to sleep only to find in the morning a BSOD. It was stuck on it again i had to turn off my pc by holding power button and then windows refused to boot beyond the Windows 7 logo black screen. But after a couple of retries it started.

I am attaching the files.

A:BSOD Driver Power State Failure

The crash indicates possible Windows corruption or memory problems. The crash bugcheck itself indicates a driver issue.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.
Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.

The Skinny

I found this forum from this thread with a similar prob. What's happening right now is,

Main prob:

1. The system can become slow after 15 mins, then the Shutting Down screen takes forever, when I pressed the ON button, I get the BSOD.

Minor issues

2. I'm always starting in 'Test Mode' since this began
3. Sometimes, the usb attached vodafone thumb-modem just stops working/undetected and I have to reinstall it, a result of 'Test Mode'?
4. I just got a Trackman Marble, can the SetPoint driver be the culprit?

Details:


Quote:




Last week, I faced some BSOD probs, but solved it by uninstalling the KB973879 Microsoft Update.

Things were relatively crash-free after that.

Yesterday I went to look at the downloaded but uninstalled MS Updates (horribly BAD idea ) and picked some updates while unticking 2 of those KB#### updates.

At restart, the ShutDown process went (screen is black, comp still on) on for an absurdly long time... I can't make it reboot with the ON button, in the end after 20 minutes I just removed the battery.




Argh!! Why??

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.

You have 2 different wired network controllers (Realtek and Marvell). Why is this? Why isn't the Marvell device either removed from your system or disabled in the BIOS?

You have a Realtek RTL8187 Wireless 802.11b/g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter
Win7 doesn't like these devices, and will Blue Screen in a heartbeat if you use older drivers. Here's my rant on these devices:

Quote:




I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.




MSINFO32 points to disk issues and cites your jraid.sys (RAID) drivers (as does both memory dumps). Please:
- run hardware diagnostics on all hard drives: HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.
- update the RAID drivers (if they are the most current version - uninstall them, then install a fresh copy).
- check the RAID array for problems (I don't have much knowledge about RAID - try over in the Hardware Forums).

Hi to all!
I'm r2. I'm having a problem on my system:
Processor: Intel core i7 875k, 9months
Motherboard: Maximus III gene, 4months
Memory: 8gb Ripjaws 1600mhz, 1.5year
Videocard: HD4870, 1.5year
Power supply: ocz sxsII 600w, 4months
Hard drive: WD 500gb, 1.5year

OS: Windows 7 x64
Observation:
Clean install OS 4 times. Shared the same symptoms
- it occurs when an application does not respond, but I can move through windows normally without lag. Then this application cannot be terminated under windows task manager. Since this application did not respond, I decided to shut it down. "logging off" for about 2-3minutes then "shutting down" for about 10-12minutes then BSOD appears stating "POWER DRIVER STATE FAILURE". It restarts automatically, freezes on windows log on screen (because I have to input password). Both mouse and keyboard does not move, even if reconnected. Rebooting the system on 'safe mode' does the trick on going inside windows, the event viewer shows: a bunch of 'network list service' and smb redirector shows at very short interval.

Even at 4th install of OS(delete drive, format to a new drive then install windows 7), error is still there.
It's been 2 weeks now, and it's very frustrating knowing that the error would show up.

thanks,
r2

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 got my notebook (MSI GE60) a month ago and since then i'm experiencing BSOD. It doesn't happen regularly. Sometimes it happens twice a day, sometimes nothing happens for 2 days .

Below i attached the dump files.

If any other info needed let me know.

A:BSOD: driver power state failure

two things, first Uninstall Daemon tools and then run this program:

Duplex secure

when you run the tool if the uninstall box is greyed out then your done If it is not then click it and let it uninstall. DO NOT click the install button It will install a Driver known to cause BSODs.

Second I notice that your video card driver (which is what the crash dumps are blaming as the problem) Is one of the drivers from the Dec 29 batch there are two things you can try, seeing if there is another update, I have heard tell that there is a beta driver that might solve the problem, or you can install an older driver and see if it fixes things. the drivers can be found here.
