BSoD when trying to install Vista SP2

1446 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  usasma
I am running Vista 32 bit
which was installed on the computer originally
this is an OEM version on an ACER ASPIRE ASE380 UD440A
the sytem is 2 years old
never been re-installed
The CPU is an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 x2 Dual COre Processor 4400+ 2.30 GHz
I have an NVIDIA GeForce 8400
No idea about the mother board or power supply.

I am trying to install Service Pack 2 but get the BSoD with power driver state failure. Looked at the minidump file but it said it was caused by the ntkrnlpa.exe file. I have had a problem with the front USB ports not working.

This is my sons computer so who knows what crap he has put on it.

I have tried to update several of the drivers for the CD/DVD drive as well as the multi port card reader and I always get a timed out error syaing windows found drivers but could not install them. ANy help is greatly appreciated.

There are 2 common reasons for Service Pack installation to fail:
- malware infection
- outdated/incompatible drivers

So, check for infection with one of these free, independent, online scans:
Then, visit the manufacturer's website ( E380&BC=Acer&SC=PA_7&LC=en )and download/update ALL of your drivers (Don't use Windows Update or the Update function of Device Manager).

On to the stuff that you uploaded.....

Your D: drive is full. It has 14% free space - and we recommend that you keep 15% free (so 14's probably OK also). But if you're storing stuff on it, then you'll have to get rid of some stuff.

You have some very, very outdated drivers on the system and they must be replaced/removed. Please follow the instructions below:
Also, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:
How To Find Drivers:
- I have listed links to most of the drivers in the code box below. Please use the links there to see what info I've found about those drivers.
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page:
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page:

Here's the older drivers (You can look them up here: ).
Please pay particular attention to any dated 2008 or earlier:

Once all the drivers are updated, see if you have further BSOD's. If so, upload them and we'll work on them that way.

When I try to install any driver updates I get (not responding errors). I have tried to stop and restart the windows installer service with no luck. Any ideas?
What link are you using?
How do you connect to the internet?
Have you scanned for malware as I suggested? If so, what was the result?
