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

I get these failures every few days. Please tell me what is needed to stop these from happening. I'd be glad to send one or more of the 'mini dump' files. I have quite a few of them.

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.

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.

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?

Netw5v64.sys Driver Issue Causes Bsod

I began getting the bsod randomly and frequently. In the time between yesterday until now, i have gotten nearly 30 bsod's. I know enough about computers to pinpoint the problem, and after debugging to the best of my ability, i determined that the driver netw5v64.sys was causing the crash.

Here is my pc info:
Dell inspiron 1525
4 gb memory
2. 4ghz duel core proc.
Integrated intel video card ~ 965chipset (i think this is correct)
280gb harddrive

The crash occurs at random, but only when i am accessing my wireless network adapter
Conditions that have changed that might have caused this:

- Yesterday around 2:00 i connected my computer to a netgear router. I live on a college campus that uses cisco security, but i wanted to broadcast my own wireless direct from an ethernet connection. I disabled dhcp and all router security. It worked and i was then able to connect through the wireless network i created into the school internet.

Other than this i cannot imagine what the problem is, and i cant seem to fix it. I have reinstalled, uninstalled, and updated all the wireless network drivers. I have check internet forms and i have found that a number of people running 64x windows are having this same issue!

Nvidia 8400 Gs Display Driver Freezes With Bsod

I have a hp m9040n pavilion elite desktop. I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit about 6 months ago. It has been working fine, but last couple of weeks my pc keeps freezing with the display driver crashing. Either the last windows update or adobe flash player might have caused it? I tried various versions of nvidia windows 7 display driver with no success. Any suggestions?

Intermittent Audio Issue

Jvc camcorder with hard drive saves video files with a mod extension. In the past with xp or vista you simply change the extension to mpg and they play with no problem. However; with win7 they only work about 50% of the time. You have to restart the files several times to get audio, video is never an issue.

Playing files from the desktop whether mpg or mod work about 30% of time when using them through media player. Using media center to run the files yields significantly better results closer to 80%.
 
If the files are copied to the my video folder they seem to have a slightly higher success rate. Media center is closer to 100%. No matter which format the files are in mod or mpg, they always work in windows live movie maker.

Intermittent Sound Corruption

I have recently bought an acer aspire m3802 desktop with windows 7 64 bit, 8 gigs ram, intel core 2 quad @2. 5ghz. I transferred my sound blaster card from my old computer to this one. It is the sound blaster x fi gaming card. The computer boots up fine and performs well. But at some random point during its use, the sound will get corrupted. There's popping, cracking, and then sometimes silence. Sometimes the sound returns on its own for a little while before going out again. Sometimes i have to reboot the computer to get the sound back to normal. But get this, when there is no sound and i restart the computer, the exit windows sound chimes before shutting down.

I believe that something is conflicting with the sound card or sound driver. This computer comes with on-board sound. I disabled the drivers thinking that was the problem. But the problem persists. I need the sound blaster card for the ability to use asio for music production. Anyone else have this problem? What should be my next step in troubleshooting this?

Intermittent Usb Not Detected Problem

My problem is the following: i have a genius traveler 315 laser mouse which i brought last summer and it worked perfect on my laptop. Recently i have bought a new laptop, on which the mouse does not work anymore.

The problem is very awkward, because the behavior of the mouse on the new laptop is completely random: on several occasions it actually worked perfectly when plugged-in, but most of the times (e.g. After restarting the os or unplugging the mouse and plugging it back) it didn't. This behavior is even stranger because on my old laptop and several others the mouse still works perfectly.

My first opinion was that the problem is with the usb or mouse drivers, but when i tried another mouse and an external hdd on the new laptop, they both worked fine. I even copied the usb-related drivers from my old laptop to the new one, hoping i could solve the problem that way, but the outcome was the same (on both laptops the os is win 7).

Another possibility was that one of the wires in the mouse's cord was broken, but i crossed that out, too, because i tried twisting the cord as much as i could while it was working on the new laptop and it still worked fine. The usb sockets on the new laptop are all working (i tried them all).

I know that the easy solution is to buy another mouse, but i rather figure out what is wrong with this one (or with my new laptop) than to spend money to replace a mouse that i know it is functional because i feel that that money would be wasted, i have no guarantee that the new mouse will work (if i'd buy a new one i'd still go for a genius) and, besides, i would be really glad if i could solve this awkward problem.

With roxio, when a cd is inserted into the cd drive on the laptop, the roxio icon automatically appears on the desktop, the cd play window appears on the desktop and the cd begins playing.

Win 7 Is Reverting To A Safe Mode State

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

Ms Wireless Keyboard / Laser Mouse 5000 Intermittent Problem

I have an intermittent problem with my ms wireless keyboard and laser mouse 5000. Windows is not recognizing the receiver in "device manager" and will not allow any updates due to compatibility issues. My ms wireless has worked then when i re-boot, it will not work. I cannot find anything consistent about the problem so i can't troubleshoot the issue.

The only consistent thing is that when the device manager is reading a failure on the receiver, i can change ports and it doesn't change anything. I tried removing the drivers, and installing new drivers but nothing seems to help. What do i do to get win 7 device manager to recognize my wireless keyboard and mouse receiver?

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?
