Keep getting the same BSOD: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I keep getting the same BSOD: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE every so often. bluescreenviewer points at ntoskrnl.exe. IIRC this is a nvidia driver issue? I have updated the drivers but it did it 2 days later. I am about to pull my hair out on this one! I'd really appreciate some help. Computer is the carbon-fiber one in my rig section.

Hello! smile.gif

Try zipping / RAR'ing up the dump file(s) and then attaching the rar / zip file. If that isn't working, you can upload the RAR / ZIP file to any free hosting site such as zippyshare or mediafire.

9f is likely a driver issue. Antivirus/antispware/security programs can also cause these issues.
Have you added devices lately or updated drivers - be sure to check in Windows Updates to see
if a driver was updated prior to this occurring. This could also be caused by a loose card or cable
and even a weak power supply.

That error means a driver is not handling the power state properly. Check in Control Panel - Device
Manager to be sure major drivers are not shut off during sleep - double click Display Adapter - NIC
and WIFI - Sound and others - Power Management tab - uncheck Allow computer to turn off power.
Maybe only one has an issue..

If that does not solve it, I'd recommend doing is enabling Driver Verifier so we can hopefully further diagnose this issue. Driver Verifier generates what is known as a "verified dump" in most if not all cases, it's a very detailed dump file and will give you very detailed information, which will hopefully lead us closer to solving this.

However, for now, we don't have much to go on, so that is why I am recommending that smile.gif

Also, when a dump file shows the probably caused fault as "ntoskrnl.exe:, which is likely very incorrect. It'll just put the fault on that .exe file if it can't figure out what's 'Probably' causing the dump. I saw you mentioned that, so I thought I'd give you some information smile.gif

I'll start checking tonight. The only thing that is questionable in the device manager is the Other devices Marvell 91xx Config ATA Device. It shows a ? mark and a down arrow. I have tried updating the driver but it cant find anything. I am running a RAID 0 for my storage. I set it up in the BIOS and it uses the Marvell controller on the MB.

The AV is the same ESET I have been using for years. I have replaced the PSU a few months ago. Its the Rosewill 1000w I picked up on sale for $79 on newegg. I had ZERO use for a PSU that powerfull but its hard for me to pass up a great deal! LOL If your suggestions dont help with the problem, I may put my old OCZ mod 750w back in. The last driver update for Nvidia caused wake errors coming out of standby so I rolled the driver back.

Otherwise, that you VERY much for your help so far.

No problem! As far as the "Marvell 91xx Config ATA Device ?" goes, I'd recommend checking your Motherboards manufacturer website's driver section and make sure ALL of your drivers are up to date. If there are no Marvel drivers listed there, I take it that you haven't installed the drivers for the Marvell 9128 controller chip on the motherboard from the original disc that came with the board itself.

And while you are there make sure that the USB3 drivers are installed and enabled in the BIOS.

Basically, right now.. we're just going through your basic diagnoses.. you eliminate one thing at a time software wise to try and find out what's causing it if a dump file is rather inconclusive. I really do think it's software, but we'll find out eventually!

Do not hesitate to also post further dump files you may be generating when you blue screen from this point on as well, it may show is more. Also, remember that Driver Verifier will help us a lot after you have done a few of your own tests smile.gif

Oh I just had 3 BSOD in a row and couldnt get to the desktop. They occured while uninstalling secunia. Kept saying somthing about accessing the kernel or something like that. Went into safe mode and was able to uninstall it.

See attached.

The process that was causing the crash upon boot was ekrn.exe, which is part of the ESET NOD process/kernal. Please disable or uninstall NOD32 as your anti virus and report back smile.gif

Also, forgot to mention, if Driver Verifier is leaving you in an endless loop of on-boot BSODs, simply boot into safe mode, open command prompt and type verifier /reset
