No · Age of system (hardware) 2-3 years · Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 1 week. I reinstalled the OS and the problem persists. · CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00GHz · Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 · MotherBoard Zotac geforce 9300-ITX [GF9300-G-E) · Power Supply - brand & wattage Silverstone ST45SF 450W

I have been getting BSOD for a while now. i reinstalled the OS but I get the exact same error. I get
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x75C00)
Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFFA8006A0A440, 0xFFFFF80000B9C4D8, 0xFFFFFA8007437CF0)
Error: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

I always get the same error. It happens most commonly when the computer is left idle for extended periods of time.

I have tested the ram individually and in both sockets for 8+ passes and had no errors.
I scanned the hdd and had no errors as well. I also attached the dump files from my previous installation of windows. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSOD persistent problem.

Hi,

The attached dump is of the DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f) bugcheck. Essentially this means that a device driver is in an invalid or inconsistent power state because of sleep mode, hibernate, etc.

In your dump, it's mentioning VW7UX64V.sys a lot, which after a quick Google search appears to be a driver for VIA Networking Technologies USB Wireless LAN Adapter. I would recommend updating any drivers in regards to this wireless LAN adapter, because yours is dated from 2010.

Code:
VW7UX64V    fffff880`0761b000    fffff880`07666000    Fri Mar 19 03:49:58 2010 (4ba32ca6)    0004661c    None    VW7UX64V.SYS

Code:
0: kd> !drvobj fffffa80066a3270 f
fffff80003274fb0: Unable to get value of ObpRootDirectoryObject
fffff80003274fb0: Unable to get value of ObpRootDirectoryObject
Driver object (fffffa80066a3270) is for:
 \Driver\VNWUND6V
Driver Extension List: (id , addr)

Device Object list:
fffffa800447c050  

DriverEntry:   fffff88007651f5c    [COLOR=Red][U][B]VW7UX64V[/B][/U][/COLOR]
DriverStartIo: 00000000    
DriverUnload:  fffff880016f6cd0    ndis!ndisMUnloadEx
AddDevice:     00000000
I would not recommend using wireless networking USB devices in general on win7/8 based systems, especially because a lot of the drivers are created for Vista and when you use such a device on an OS like 7/8, the drivers aren't supported for 7/8 in various ways and are surefire ways to cause BSOD's.

Regards,

Patrick

Hi,

Great to hear! Unfortunately, I cannot mark it as solved. You'll need to do that yourself. Please navigate to 'Thread Tools' at the top of the thread and select 'Mark this thread as solved'.

Regards,

Patrick
