Windows 8.1 BSOD on sleep "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE"

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I have just recently started having this problem with my new build. It was originally fine, however it has just begun failing to sleep correctly. It will shut the screen off and become unresponsive, although the fans etc will continue to run and the HDD light will flash. Eventually it will crash and, using BlueScreenView, I have been able to determine it was throwing a BSOD with 0x9f code and a message of: "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE".

Any help would be appreciated! I don't want to have to reinstall windows already. Also, I am not sure if it is relevant, I recently installed an extra 2 sticks of RAM, although I believe it was sleeping correctly immediately afterwards.

Test that theory by removing the sticks and see if you have an issue still.

Hi,
I think the problem is with iaStorA.sys. This is not simply a driver we can remove and replace as more than 90% of the time once it's removed, you can no longer boot. You can try one thing, or you can do a clean install of Windows and not install the IRST driver at all and allow Windows to keep the default driver.

First off, let's create a Restore Point - http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/4690-restore-point-create-windows-8-a.html

Head to Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, change the drivers for the Intel (also works for AMD/Nvidia - enables TRIM for SSDs and allows SSD software to access the drive for firmware updates, etc.) to the standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller. Do this by selecting "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" and then choose the "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller" (it's the inbuilt Windows driver for AHCI SATA). Apply/OK your way back out of Device Manager.

Reopen Device Manager and check that the MS driver has 'stuck'. Then, still in Device Manager, select 'View' > 'Show hidden devices' and open the 'Non-plug and play Drivers' section and right-click on iaStore A, select Properties then the Drivers tab; under Startup, change the Type to Disabled, Apply it and then you should be prompted to reboot - do it.

Wait a few moments after the reboot - if Windows prompts that you need to reboot again, it may have re-enabled it - reboot if needed then check that iaStoreA is still disabled.

Or, as I said, run a clean install of Windows and don't install IRST.
