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.

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

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.

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.

Blue Screen Crash (not Bsod)

I have "installed" windows 7 on a p. C. The first attempt got to "configuring windows for first time use" before it crashed with a blue screen (but not the bsod) it looks like very top of the toolbar repeated a number of times all over the screen, you can see mainly blue but with little black rectangles that look like the minimize button.

Any way i rebooted and all went well. Windows opened and it appeared to be working fine. However, when i run certain tasks it blue screens. For example if i try to open a picture it will always instantly crash. If i close red alert 2 it will crash but not while i play it. It never randomly crashes but always when i perform a specific task and if it will always crashes when i perform the same task after a reboot. I'm reasonably confident that all the hardware is o. K. I've tested all the components in my other p. C and that has no problems, further i'm pretty sure they are all compatible, the p. C is
1 tb samsung hd
Xfx 7900 gt
Gigabyte ga-ep41-ud3l
Intel e7500
Corsair extreme 2gb @ 800 mhz
600 antec psu

To be honest i can't think of any reason why it still blue screens on certain tasks apart from a corrupt install, i've tried wiping the hd and doing a reinstall but get to exactly the same place and have exactly the same problem. Maybe a faulty disk? It came from a reputable retailer and windows recognized it as genuine software. I've also tried an install on a different hd but with no success. And second opinions or suggestions?

Blue Screen Driver Irql

Bsod driver irql blue screen of death windows 7 ultimate and windows vista. I keep getting the bsod and they are different everytime. I had windows vista orignally on my pc (hp m8300f) and it has worked fine for 3 years until last month i started getting these bsod. So i thought a new clean install of windows 7 ultimate would solve the issue.

Well i was very happy to get the new os installed but few hours later that darn bsod appeared and im now clueless. Is it my ram? My drivers? My hard drives?Im computer literate but im no way some type of tech. I have basic computing knowledge and thats it. You can download minidump files and find system info here in this zip file http://www.Sendspace.com/file/mfx420 this issue is very very irritating and has messed up a lot of my work.

Nvlddmkm.sys Driver Causes Blue Screen

The nvlddkm.sys driver for my geforce 6150se nforce 430 graphics card causes a blue screen of death whenever i watch a youtube video for a long period of time. I re-installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, and it still does this. I run windows 7 ultimate 64bit, skype, teamviewer, pidgin client, mirc, firefox, kaspersky internet security 2010, opendns updater, itunes, and outlook 2007.

This problem has caused an unbootble machine when it first happened. It stops happening when i uninstall the nvlddkm.sys display driver, but when it gets reinstalled via windows u[date, and i reboot, it blue-screens. When i re-installed the os, i could work normally again. I am afraid this problem could start again however.

Nvidia Go 6150 Gpu Driver Causes Blue Screen

I installed windows 7 ultimate-64 on my hp pavilion tx1000 series touchscreen laptop model tx1308ca with nvidia nforce go6150 gpu. I successfully used the old hp vista64 smbus & smu driver to get rid of the "processor" driver issue, and then used windows update to install the latest gpu driver (version 7. 15. 11. 7967 by nvidia).

Everything worked well, until i started the windows performance assessment test. The test goes through direct3d 9 tests without a hitch, skips all directx 10 tests, and goes to blue screen of death immediately upon starting the windows media tests. This happens every time and in the same "spot" when the test is run.

I later noted that windows crashes to bsod also every time i try to access the web cam (usb 2. 0 camera driver v. 6. 1. 7600. 16385 from windows update). I also could not access the fingerprint setup software (instant bsod), that got installed with authentec aes1610 driver v. 2. 0. 0. 18 from windows update. Bsod does not happen during any other usage of my laptop, but i do not use it to play games or videos.

I rolled back the graphics driver to standard vga with 1280x800 resolution, keeping all other drivers as they were, and was able to run the windows performance assessment test, use the camera & set up the fingerprint recognition software. No problems encountered, but the graphics assessment is at 1. 0 & gpu ram is not available.

Updating gpu driver back to the one from windows update brings all the bsod problems back. Upon re-start & recovery, i have allowed windows to report the problem to microsoft (on at least 10 occasions over the past month), but there is no resolution yet. I tried driver files suggested on hp support forum pages, on laptopvideo2go website, but none of them will install with go 6150 gpu on my laptop. I heard that old hp vista64 gpu driver will not work with windows7-64, but have not tried this option.

I also downloaded and successfully installed sp45169 from hp (suggested on hp forums for nvidia smbus & smu laptop driver under windows 7-64) - works fine but there is no improvement in bsod occurrences and causes. Is microsoft working with or without hp & nvidia on a solution to symptoms quoted?

The laptop is only 2 years old, but hp refuses to support this series for windows 7 and nvidia states that the manufacturer (hp) requested they do not supply the driver as it must be optimized for system management (thermal, lid closure, etc. Issues). This catch 22 is outrageous!  Can microsoft exert its considerable influence to help solve the driver issue?

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

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?

Blue Screen - Driver_power_state_failure

I have owned windows 7 for about 5 months now. I upgraded to windows 7 professional from windows xp home edition. I also upgraded to 4gb of ram. Since then, i have, at random times, received the blue screen of death and then my computer quickly shuts down and reboots. I haven't bothered with getting it fixed because it wasn't too much of a problem for me, but now it seems to be recurring a lot more often. I have already had it happen twice today.

However, sometimes it is not always a blue screen, it may just turn black, shut off, and reboot. When it is a blue screen i notice it says driver_power_state_failurealso note that whenever this problem happens, i am always on internet explorer 8, not doing anything out of the ordinary either. My computer just gets these screens at random times. I have looked at other topics in this forum for the answer, but it has been difficult finding a solution.

Blue Screen Problem

I been lurking around here for sometime hoping to find some answers to my problem. While cleaning my files in my laptop, i accidentally delete my boot.ini so i encountered "ntdlr missing problem "press alt ctrl delete". I have my windows xp 98 cd & made a boot from there but it's asking for administrator password although i didn't have a password. So i given up on doing this stuff.

To keep my old files from losing i decided not to reformat my laptop since i didn't have any back up of it. So my friend & i decided to install windows 7, but whenever i watch movie from a dvd- rom i encountered some problem. The images goes blurred then eventually my laptop crashed. Diagnosis were:

Blue Screen Of Death

Running windows 7 professional, ie 8 - keep getting unexpected shutdowns with the following errors: 1) memory management and 2) pfn list corrupt. For the memory management error i have run the memory diagnostics and the results indicate that i have a hardware problem and i should contact the manufacturer (gateway). Unfortunately, i no longer have a warranty and they charge $60 for 1/2 hour. (I have spent that much and the technical support person didn't resolve my problem).

I don't have a clue as what pfn list corrupt is. Please note that i am not a tech person and all the reports(dumps) that vare generated are useless to me, since they are not clear to read.
I do run all my maintenance and antivirus programs daily and try to keep everything according to protocol. Yet i keep getting the blue screen of deaths. Please also note that i always get a window after the fact that reads: "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown. "

Questions: 

1) if i purchase a new hard disk, would this take care of the problem or not?

2) does ram have anything to do with these errors? 3) what other alternatives are there?

Would appreciate solid guidelines and your enlightening me on the above resolution.

Blue Screen At Login

I bought my friend laptop after he came back from iraq cause he no longer wanted it. I was going threw changing the stuff to make it mine, like user name and what not. Well i tried to change the computer name as it was his name kebowlin-pc and it said to do this to restart the computer. I did, and now when the computer gets to windows 7 login screen it goes to the blue screen error. I have done two system restores with no luck. I have also tried changing the name back with now luck. This is what it is telling me.

Also a weird thing that i don't under stand is that the main user file is his name and it has a little lock on its pic in the user files, but i am the only person on the computer and the only admin.

Constant Blue Screen

I recently purchased a computer running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Here are the basic specs.
Intel(r) core(tm) i5 cpu 750 @ 2. 67 ghz 8. 00gb ram

I bought this pc mainly for gaming (primarily steam, but i've been running games like dragon age: origins and cryostas is without the client). However, recently, every time i quit a game (or any program that's full screen, really) or attempt to change my resolution/display settings, i instantly get a blue screen. This can be at any time; i can boot the computer (which only take about 45-60 seconds) and instantly boot, for example, team fortress 2; and the second i quit it, i get the blue screen. Because of this i somehow doubt it has anything to do with overheating issues, but i myself wouldn't really know. Here's the error code that i receive upon windows' revival.

Blue Screen 0x1e

Well, i received a new computer about a month ago, and it's been running perfectly until today. I started it up and was customizing the dock when my virus program, mcafee, told me i needed to restart my computer because it had recently updated. After it rebooted, it ran fine until suddenly a blue screen popped up with some text on it. Sorry, but i didn't have time to read the text because it popped up and left so fast. I did get to read something about it needing to shutdown to protect data (i think), but that's about it.

Anyway, when it rebooted, it stopped in the middle of it and told me the unexpected shutdown caused some problems and told me that i might be able to recover my data if i started windows in safe mode, so i chose the regular safe mode and rebooted it. It started with the screen resolution in 800x600, and looked like windows 2000 with a few different things. The background was now this black screen with "safe mode" text in all four corners, and "microsoft" text centered on top of the screen. It opened up two things, one being a "what is safe mode" help window, and the other being some sort of error window telling me that "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" and that windows could "check online for a solution to the problem the next time you go online. ' and then told me the error details.

After i had read all of it and copied the error details to a notepad file, i rebooted again hoping it'd turn back to normal. It started up again and is currently running normally without any problems, but i still want to know what happened, why, and how i could fix and/or prevent the issue from appearing in the future.

Blue Screen When Using Ie8

I get a bsod randomly when using ie8. Using bluescreen view i typically get the following info: a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exedriver_corrupted_expool if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.

If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options, and then
Select safe mode. Technical information:*** stop: 0x100000c5 (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x82f2104d)*** ntoskrnl.exe - address 0x82f2104d base at 0x82e01000 datestamp 0x4c1c3faci could use some help in resolving this problem.
