Fast Solution to Error: Driver Power Failure BSoD

Driver Power Failure BSoD

Hi guys,

I've been having this problem for a while where I frequently Blue-Screen if I put my computer to sleep mode.

Can you help me out? Here is the crash minidump file from last night:

Thanks everyone!


Using BlueScreenView to explore the minidump, I discovered that these were the main problems that popped up most often:

ntoskrnl.exe ntoskrnl.exe+ec150 fffff800`02e19000
fffff800`03402000 0x005e9000 0x4e02aaa3

fffff880`013c9000 0x001a3000 0x4d79997b 3/10/2011 10:39:39 PM

The first one popped up almost every bluescreen.

Are you using any Roxio or Nero programs? These have been known to cause this problem even
if they were working well for a long period of time.
If so check with their support.


Check these :
Error message when you try to resume a Windows 7-based or a Windows Server 2008 R2-based
computer from hibernation: "Stop 0x0000009F" 

Stop error when you put a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 to
sleep or into hibernation, or when you restart the computer: "0x9F" 

"0x0000009F" Stop error message when a computer enters and resumes from hibernation in
Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 

This one is possible if BlueScreenView OR MyEventViewer (or EventViewer) shows the appropriate code.

Windows Kernel event ID 41 error in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2: “The system has
rebooted without cleanly shutting down first” 

And :

"Stop 0x9F" or "Stop 0xFE" error on a Windows 7-based or Windows Vista-based computer that
uses certain AMD USB EHCI host controllers

We can analyze the minidumps if you make them available from the SkyDrive or other file
sharing sites.

Zip or upload the contents of C:\Windows\minidump
Use SkyDrive to upload collected files and post screen shot/picture.
Check with these utilities to see if any information can be gathered : (Be sure to run this since there
may well be other Bug_Check codes.)

This is an excellent tool for posting Blue Screen Error Information
BlueScreenView - Free - scans all your minidump files created during 'blue screen of death' crashes,
and displays the information about all crashes in one table.


MyEventViewer can be checked at the time of the BlueScreen (BSOD) to within a second or so of the
time of the BSOD to provide more information as to possible cause - see TIP.
MyEventViewer - Free - a simple alternative to the standard event viewer of Windows.
TIP - Options - Advanced Filter allows you to see a time frame instead of the whole file -
set it to a bit before and after the time of the BSOD.

AppCrashView - Free - a small utility for Windows Vista and Windows 7 that displays the details of all
application crashes occurred in your system.
The crashes information is extracted from the .wer
files created by the Windows Error Reporting (WER) component of the operating system every
time that a crash is occurred.
AppCrashView also allows you to easily save the crashes list to
text/csv/html/xml file.

References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.
This "could" be a power supply problem though it is not the most common cause.
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.

Start - type in Search box - MSCONFIG  find at top - Right Click - RUN AS ADMIN

General Tab - check Diagnostic Start  - APPLY / OK  -  REBOOT

Try it now.
If it still blue screens think Video Driver.
If not think NIC, Wifi, Sound, or......
(and it still could be video interacting with something else).
See troubleshooter link
above for my generic driver update methods.
BCCode: 9F  0x0000009F  <-- read this link*1167.html?order=date

See the troubleshooter links posted above for methods to update drivers.

Hope this helps.

Manually editing the Windows registry

Manually editing the Windows registry to remove invalid MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION keys is not recommended unless you are PC service professional. Incorrectly editing your registry can stop your PC from functioning and create irreversible damage to your operating system. In fact, one misplaced comma can prevent your PC from booting entirely!

Caution: Unless you an advanced PC user, we DO NOT recommend editing the Windows registry manually. Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows. We do not guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To manually repair your Windows registry, first you need to create a backup by exporting a portion of the registry related to MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION (eg. Windows Operating System):

  • Click the Start button.
  • Type "command" in the search box... DO NOT hit ENTER yet!
  • While holding CTRL-Shift on your keyboard, hit ENTER.
  • You will be prompted with a permission dialog box.
  • Click Yes.
  • A black box will open with a blinking cursor.
  • Type "regedit" and hit ENTER.
  • In the Registry Editor, select the Error 0x9C-related key (eg. Windows Operating System) you want to back up.
  • From the File menu, choose Export.
  • In the Save In list, select the folder where you want to save the Windows Operating System backup key.
  • In the File Name box, type a name for your backup file, such as "Windows Operating System Backup".
  • In the Export Range box, be sure that "Selected branch" is selected.
  • Click Save.
  • The file is then saved with a .reg file extension.
  • You now have a backup of your MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION-related registry entry.
