Multiple 9f Driver Power State Failure

I've recently had some issues with bsod's every couple days or so. I have added a ssd a few weeks ago and did a fresh install of windows 7 pro 64 bit. Shortly after that i started having this issue. I've read that it could be an issue with sleep/hibernate as i do use both of these features often. I have attached the zip file containing the dump files, driver info, etc from the sevenforums tool.

Intermittent Bsod Driver Power State Failure

Used free win7 trial on my computer when it came out. Rock stable. Purchased win7 home premium and did clean install. Now plagued by intermittent (every few hours) bsod and reboots. Needless to say i am more than annoyed that the free trial version worked perfectly whereas the paid version does not work so well.

I get driver_power_state_failure bug check code 0x0000009f caused by driver ntkrnlpa.exe
Or alternatively caused by driver ataport.sys

Blue Screen - Bsod - Driver Power State Failure

Every so often my laptop (hp tx2525nr) will have a blue screen of death with the error message: driver power state failure. It also will also occasionally freeze up and the screen will become all jumbled with lines and stuff and i will have to do a forced shut down. Either one of these will happen about twice a week, sometimes even more than that.

I have tried updating my drivers multiple times but no luck. I used to have vista (x64) but did a clean install of windows 7 professional (x64) hoping that would fix my problem, but still no luck.

Crashes And Debugging - Bsod Ntoskrnl.exe And Driver Power State Failure

I have recently installed a ssd into my laptop and re-installed everything. I also switch the sata mode to ahci to improve the performance. But there is one problem that did not occur before is that after a long period of using the laptop, i cannot plugin any devices to the usb ports. Then i scan for hardware changes, and the finding window keep doing forever. So i try to shutdown and it fails to do so, after about 30 min it says bsod with driver_power_state_failure. This does not occur instantly when starting windows, only after a period of using. I have attached the sf diagnostic data.

Power Failure During Boot Time

I have a hp system that was upgraded to windows 7 home premium x64 from vista using the hp upgrade dvd. Everything worked fine until yesterday. The system restarted after a needed system update and by mistake i hit the power button during boot time. I press the button again to start and the system just does not want to boot. I have tried changing to onboard video on bios setup, system repair, system restore and safe mode but nothing seems to work. I also entered commands bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot

During safe mode it just hangs at ahcxi64s.sys and then it restarts again. The system repair log shows below:

Root cause found:

Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem

Repair action: system files integrity check and repair
Result: failed. Error code = 0x490
Time taken = 849535 ms

Usb Devices Not Working After Power Failure

I recently suffered a power failure while i was using the computer. After powering on again certain usb devices that used to work well before returned errors. All attempts to get these devices installed fail. For example, when i plug in my sennheiser usb headset, the item is correctly identified by name but  i get the error "the drivers for this device are not installed (code 28). This device did not come with drivers and before would plug and unplug it without problems.

When i plug in my microsoft transiever v3 for bluetooth, i end up with "the drivers for this device are not installed" (code 28). This item come with my microsoft wireless mouse. When i try to reinstall the latest software, it is unable to detect this item. Before it used to work without problems. My logitech usb keyboard returns an error as well, yet a ps/2 keyboard works. Usb pen drives are working well. I am under the impression that the device database got corrupted. Is there a way i can reinitialize it?

Im using windows 7 home premium 64-bit. I have been using it for over a month, and when i switched my computer on 3 days ago, all my setting had gone and replaced by windows 7 basic safe mode type settings. No sound, no virus program (norton 360 4. 0) , no internet settings, there was no system restore information so i couldn't restore, i installed malewarebytes and did a scan and found nothing, so i then re set all my settings and re installed ie, my virus programm, and all other basic settings and programs . Everything worked fine for the rest of the day with a few restars etc then the next day i turned it on and i was back to basic with nothing installed :-(only thing i can think of is possible norton conflict as this was only installed a few days prior to problems? Please help i've no idea why this is happening

Steady State Removes Saved Information When Updates Install

We are a small school and have only been using steady state for a few months. I have found that certain information that has been saved to the computers is being erased when steady state allows updates each week. For example:

Good search has been set as our default webpage and our school listed as the charity of choice. The school name will stay until tuesday nights we we leave the computer up to install updates. Once the updates are installed the school name is gone.

Now i think the same thing is happening with the new copier we set up last month. I have access codes for each teacher saved under their computer login. This is the second time that they were able to print all week, but after updates on tuesday several are missing the access codes.

Any suggestions?

Power On Password

I pushed the power on, just as i normally do. But found out displaying this: "power-on password". The last time i use it was like the usual thing i do. I do now know the password and how i ended up with this. I tried some of these: i tried to remove the battery for a meantime and hoping it will turn on normally but still shows the same result. Everytime i click enter, it shows the same until 3rd time. Everytime i click f11 or any function keys, it still shows the same. I just purchased windows 7 9 months ago but haven't experienced any negative things until now.

Laptop Will Not Power Up

Have been given a toshiba protege r400 mod no:ppr40a-01000l to look at for a friend who is very ill and the machine just will not switch on. Have tested the adaptor and battery voltage and there is plenty. Now i don't have much experience with laptops as such and so cannot rule the psu as the culprit. When plugged in the blue power light is on and the small yellow battery indicator flickers at random speeds - but quite fast. Now i have the maintenance manual for it and i can probably get the lcd mask off to look at the power witch itself. But before i do i would like some opinions on the most likely cause and would prefer to avoid this if at all possible.

Why Doesnt The Usb Power Off ?

Why doesn't the usb power off in windows 7 & vista. My led is still on after i click on the remove usb icon. Vista and win 7 rc1 still say i can remove the usb but the usb is still powered. This, in my opinion, can still affect the usb. Is it possible to have the usb power down like in xp. It is not a big issue but important from the stand point of possibly losing data on the usb or other device.

Usb Power Surge

I got an error message stating usb power surge/failure. Since then, all 3 usbs on my laptop are no longer working. If i plug an optic mouse into it the optic light doesn't even come on making me think its a power issue. In device manager though, all usbs are showing as operational (although when you select one and go to the power tab, it shows 0 under power available. I'm worried i have fried my motherboard but everything else is working fine. Any suggestions ?

Mimic Xp Power User

We are trying to get legacy software to work on vista and windows 7. Our software could be run by administrators or power users in xp. According to microsoft, "to use power users group on windows vista, a new security template must be applied to change the default permissions on system folders and the registry to grant power users group permissions equivalent to windows xp". However, it does not tell me how to configure one or give an example.

Can anyone tell me what i need to do to create a security template that will be the equivalent of a power user in xp?

Power Settings Reset

Although i have setup my laptop not to enter sleep mode when i close the lid and this has worked several times, after installing updates this setting does not work anymore. The settings themselves did not change, just the behavior. I tried to change them back to default and then change them back to how i want (i.e. Not to enter sleep mode when the lid is closed), but the laptop still goes into sleep mode when the lid is closed.

Any ideas where i can begin troubleshooting?

How To Enable Power Icon?

When i installed windows 7 last weekend, there was a power icon in the system tray that i unintentionally disabled. How do i get it back? There is no entry for power when i click customize on the systray so i can't enable it through the ui. I also looked in the registry to verify that the icon was not disabled there.
 
The ups shows up in the device manager and powercfg correctly identifies it (apc es550). The battery is obviously working because i can unplug the ups and the machine continues to work. It would be nice though, to be able to see the battery status.

I've read a number of messages from people complaining about the power icon but i'd be happy just to see it. What's the secret here?

Power Option Does Not Display

I recently brought a new laptop which runs windows 7 home premium. I use it either at work, university or at home (where i attach an external monitor) and so often need to change the power settings depending on whether i am running on battery or not etc. However recently when i either click the power icon in the status bar (bottom right) or through the control pannel nothing happens, not even an error message. This happens regardless of whether its power by mains or battery, has the external monitor attached or not, or is connected to the internet or not. The icon in the control pannel has also changed to a file image instead of the power options icon. How do i fix this?

How To Use Most Of Cpu Power In Xp Mode ?

I want to use the most of my cpu power in xp mode of window 7. I am using amd x620 with 4 cores and 6g of ram. My machines work wonderfully in window 7 - very fast. But, when i only use xp mode in window 7, it seems that only one core out of four cores of my amd x620 is working, the remaining three cores/cpus are still in "holiday". That is, can virtual window create virtual machines with 4 virtual processors or 4 virtual cores per virtual machine? If so, what should i do to get the three lasz cores work harder?

Motherboard Failure

My motherboard has failed catastrophically and must be replaced. I cannot obtain the same board again so have ordered one which is compatible with my ram, cpu, hard drive and other peripherals which are all believed to be ok.

My os is retail (not oem) windows 7 home premium upgrade 64 bit (previously had vista home premium retail). Assuming all the hardware behaves properly, how will win 7 on the existing hard drive respond to the new hardware? Will i have to re-activate windows and will it guide me through that?

Non Stop Update

This morning i started my computer a hp laptop, running windows vista ultima 32 bit, once started it showed a windows automatic update notice. I clicked to start it as i always have, never had a problem before. It started the update, i went back to what i was doing, while it was working i was checking my email as i haven't been on my computer since saturday afternoon.

When i finished and the update was finished, i restarted it, where it went to "update configuring: stage 1 of 3". It will not complete "stage 3 of 3- 0% complete", where it hang up, then restarts to start the same thing all over again. But it starts at stage 3 of 3 and will not even get to the password section.

I've spent 5 hours trying everything i could think of, safe mode start, everything i try does the same thing once it restarts it goes directly to the update stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete again. I let it try this 20 times in a row once, checked internet connection with another computer, no problem. Will not go past the update 3 of 3. I guess stage 1 and 2 completed as it always starts with the stage 3 of 3 update.
