Ever since updating to Windows 10 I have periodically had a problem with my computer when I wake it from sleep. The symptoms of this are as follows:
The machine will wake from sleep fine and I'm able to put in my password etc. After 30s to a minute, the machine will give me a BSOD citing Driver_Power_State_Failure (occasionally it has been something else but this is the main culprit.) It then collects data cycling up to 100% but does not reboot automatically. I need to do this manually. When I do so, the machine will reboot normally.On a couple of occasions in the last month, the machine will simply not wake from sleep at all and neither does it respond when I press the power or reset buttons. The only way I can get it to start again is by manually turning off the power supply and then turning it on again. I am not sure if this is related to the BSOD issue or whether it is a separate issue.I have previously had an issue where the machine would appear to wake from sleep but the screen would remain dead and the keyboard was unresponsive (though the num lock light was showing.) I can't recall having this issue recently and am unsure whether this is a separate issue.It normally seems to occur after the machine has been asleep (hybrid sleep) for some time.Of late I've noticed that it often seems to coincide with me opening a new program or file immediately after waking the machine from sleep.
I have tried several things to fix the issue as follows:
I've tried to run Driver Verifier but have never managed to get the machine to start up successfully even with only one driver selected. (In fact I have to manually import the original registry settings to turn off Driver Verifier again in order to get my machine going again.)I have uninstalled and unplugged a USB video capture device but that has made no difference.I have completely uninstalled the drivers for my graphics card and then reinstalled using Microsoft's default drivers. No difference. I've made sure that I am running the latest drivers, have checked Windows update etc.
It's tricky to pin things down to a particular driver without using Driver Verifier and I'm not sure how to decipher the dump files and error logs generated each time this happens.
I have been getting these nvidia driver crashes, where the monitor turns off by itself and then recovers and I can continue using it normally, but lately the drivers just crash and a few moments after, the PC reboots on its own but fails to turn on the monitor, which forces me to do a manual reboot. After the manual reboot, I go to Event Viewer and find these errors: Critical, Event ID 41, Source Kernel-Power. Error, Event ID 3, Source Kernel-EventTracing.
I am running Windows 10 with the Insider Program. It's the 64 bit version. I have the latest (just checked) NVIDIA driver for my GTX 560 Ti.
In the last few days I've experienced a problem in which the graphics driver crashes and then recovers after a few seconds. When it crashes, the screen goes black, as if there's no signal. Then it goes back on, but if I was playing a video when it crashed, the media player (MPC-HC) needs to be restarted, otherwise playback cannot be resumed.
It also happens during general use, ie web browsing and such, though it certainly is more frequent when playing back videos. I'd say 80% of the crashes occur during video playback. And when that happens, in addition to the black screen, the GPU's fan goes full power until the driver is restored.
Since NVIDIA hasn't released a new Windows 10 driver since July, is it safe to say that it's a hardware and not a software issue?
I am currently running the 358.50 version of GeForce drivers, however there are newer ones available (361.43). For some reason when I tried updating, my system got really unstable and eventually blue screened with KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. When I rebooted it was fine, until I tried to use a graphics intensive application (Photoshop) that caused my laptop to switch from Intel HD to NVidia. My computer locked up and crashed again. I booted into safe mode and rolled back the driver, but I need to install that driver eventually as I use this laptop for gaming and Photoshop.Maybe another driver needs to be updated?
I recently did a clean install to get Windows 10, but I'm getting two issues atm. The major one is a freeze crash where the computer will freeze, and the have the audio go really slow, robotic or at other times it will stutter/repeat. Sometimes the screen will also go black. It started happening around once per a day after I installed Windows 10. The only way to get out of it is to restart the computer, but when I restart it, the computer doesn't get past the windows loading screen. But on the 2nd restart after manually pressing the power button, it finally goes back to normal and boots up properly. It's happened around 4-5 times already since I installed Windows 10 a week ago.
The second issue might be related but around once a day, my screen turns black and I get a notification that Nvidia driver (model #) has stopped responding and has recovered. It's really quick and lasts only 3-5 seconds, so its not that annoying. This is a issue that I've had for a while even back in Windows 7. I always update the drivers for the GTX 660 Ti using Geforce Experience from Nvidia, but it never solves the issue.
I did get 1-2 BSODs since installing Windows 10, but I'm not sure if they are related.In the dump file, there is information that says the BSOD error is a "VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR (199)" with the driver reporting a invalid fence ID. I looked it up online and I tried a solution, but it didn't work. I'm a bit stuck on what to do next. I also forgot to mention that if I press the sleep key on my keyboard and later awake from it, windows tends to slowly crash and eventually BSOD. By slowly, I mean that the taskbar starts to disappear as well as the start menu, but I can still use my programs such as Chrome to a limited degree, which is quite weird.
With my new build computer, I am having serious problems with the sleep function. This was an upgrade from 8.1.
After attempting to wake up from sleep with an input, either a) the screen remains black, or b) the desktop is visible but soon after, everything freezes and no input is possible at all requiring a manual reset. The computer turns on and wakes up (fan and light).
Right now I've turned sleep off, but I'd like to have it working properly.
I have downloaded all the latest drivers from Asus and Nvidia, including chipset, LAN, Video, latest Bios, etc.
Xeon 1650 v3 Asus X99 WS-E motherboard 32GB ECC RAM Nvidia GTX 950 Intel 750 SSD M.2 Nvme 450gb Samsung 850 Pro 1 TB Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard Asus 4k HDMI 2.0 monitor
ASUS UX303LN user. Before 3 days, my laptop started refusing to wake up from sleep properly, instead it reboots from a clean state, It is as if I am pressing an invisible reset button that starts the computer from scratch.
The first time this occured, I managed to catch a glimpse of a BSOD with a sad face, followed by a restart (unfortunately I have not managed to note down the message). After that every time I do the same there is no BSOD, the laptop just shows the BIOS posting and then it loads Windows. Event Viewer shows the same Error 41 after every reboot. Note that before this problem started to occur, my laptop barely had to start from scratch (every time I was done with working I was just closing the lid, returning in a functioning environment) for a good 2 years. I had to reboot maybe once/twice a month for the necessary updates.
Some more info:
-After crashing, the computer does NOT generate a memory dump, no matter what. I know how to setup a memory dump, however for the last 50 crashes it does not. I have tried selecting minidump instead of automatic dump without a result (the last dump was 3 weeks back for another reason). Disabling automatic restart after crash does not work either. -The problem started 2 days after receiving the notorious KB3140743 update (that came together with KB3139907). Uninstalling the first did not work, the second cannot be uninstalled. -Trying to alleviate the problem, I thought of changing to hibernate instead of sleep when I close the lid/ the system goes idle. For that I had to reenable hibernation (powercfg /h on) which I had disabled because I have not used it. It worked ONCE, just the first time, every other time the result is the same as with sleeping (reboot and error 41). Enabling/disabling Hybrid Sleep did not work either) -Windows memory diagnostics shows no errors, SMART also shows no errors for the SSD
What I have tried (and failed) so far:
-Reverting KB3140743 -Updating/reverting display drivers for the 2 GPUs (intel 4400/geforce 840m) -Updating/reverting/completely disabling intel 7260 wifi/bluetooth drivers (which are known to be problematic) -Changing network card's "keep device awake" options -Updating intel DPTF drivers (after seeing that they post some not critical errors in the event viewer) -Disabling Throttlestop (a tool to manage the CPU's behaviour) -Changing power schemes -Tinkering with different SSD options (indexing/virtual memory etc)
a few days ago I updated my 64 bit windows 7 ultimate to windows 10 pro, and ever since then whenever I put the PC to sleep and try to wake it the PC tries to start but the screen remains black and after a while a BSOD will appear (now with a sad face on it... amusing...) stating driver_power_state_failure, it happens consistently and only under those circumstances (at least for now) I tried running the driver verifier (as explained on other posts BSOD on sleep, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE - Windows 10 Forums) and followed the tenforums tutorial, but nothing in particular happened
I use the sleep function a lot and I cant have it like this.
Recently, whenever I wake my laptop up from sleep (from closing the lid and then opening it again), sometimes I get a BSOD.
I think it started when I updated the Intel graphics driver, so I've booted into safe mode, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, and I still get an issue.
I've attached the debug files, there was a previous BSOD a few months ago that I was getting due to a Nvidia driver issue, but I downgraded to an earlier version and it's stopped it, so I don't think the issue is there.
So upgraded from 8.1 Pro. I never had any problems with 8.1 other than the occasional crash here and there, but nothing exceptional. Now every time that I try to wake the computer from sleep I get a stop message that states that it tried to write to read only memory.
I have run memtest86 overnight with 7 iterations and it passed them with no errors. I ran a burn test on my CPU to see if it was overheating, with it never going above 63 degrees Celsius even on the most extreme test.
The crashes are not random. They only happen when I try to wake the computer from sleep. However, it looks like what is causing them is random.
I have never overclocked my computer and I have never touched the frequencies with the memory.
while trying to wake up my PC from sleep mode. I have had this configuration for 3-4 weeks and it's been 100% stable. I am just wondering if there is some driver that caused this BSOD to pop up when I was trying to wake up my PC. Hardware-wise, I only installed a new fan 3-4 days ago, and that is pretty much it. The blue screen message stated that it was caused by MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, Error number 0x0000001a. It seems that it was caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe +14e2e0.
I installed new Geforce Drivers yesterday as well as some Logitech drivers for their GT steering wheel dated 2010. Perhaps they are causing a conflict with something.
I have recently completed a new home build with the following specs:
Processor: i7-6700k Motherboard: Gigabyte GA Z170X Gaming GT Memory: Corsair Vengence LPX DDR4, 2666 GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury SSD: Intel 750 Series, 1.2 TB PSU: Corsair RM Series 750 Watt Case: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 OS: Windows 10 Home
The build went fairly well and the computer seems rather stable (and very, very quiet). But the main problem I am having is that after the computer wakes up from sleep mode, it crashes a few seconds later and re-boots. The event log will be riddled with entries upon reboot, but one critical event in particular catches my attention:
Event ID: 41, Kernel-Power
There are also a number of Errors that show up; not sure if they are normal or not but I suspect errors should not typically occur. I've updated all of my device drives but that didn't really seem to solve the issue. I also tried changing the power settings and un-selecting "Fast Startup" as per a recommendation I read on a different forum but that had no effect. To prevent the system crash, I've simply been shutting down my computer after I am done using it which isn't a bad thing, but I'd like to have the option of using sleep mode.
Also, for what it's worth, I remember having a bitch of a time with sleep mode with RAID 0 on my old computer, so perhaps Windows does not yet adequately support "sleep mode" with PCI-E controllers.
I recently upgraded my PC with a new solid state drive and to windows 10. I am now experiencing some BSOD (Driver_Power_State_Failure) crashes. I cant say with any certainty but these appear to only be happening once the computer has been in sleep mode for a while. I have attached Zip file ....
I used to run on Windows 8.1 Pro, and had various trouble with SonicWall Global.
Once I installed Windows 10, the VPN stopped working, and I eventually got it working again by installing the network adapter manually per this thread (add legacy hardware)
However, after that, I got the ndis.sys blue screen when I let my computer go to sleep WHILE the VPN is running. This was never an issue before. I don't get a blue screen if the computer sleeps with the VPN off or disconnected.
Before it is suggested, I can't work with out SonicWall unfortunately. It is what my office uses for whatever reason.
Lately I've been extremely frustrated with the GPU in my laptop constantly crashing. It happens almost every time it gets put into use. Some main examples are opening Geometry Dash (in which case the graphics card crashes), opening Kerbal Space Program (in which case the graphics card also crashes), editing videos in Vegas Pro 13 (in which case I once got a blue screen), and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition (can you guess?.... yep, the GPU crashes). The only applications that use the GPU and don't crash are Minecraft (basically Java applications) and TerraTech.
My head is starting to boil, since this is the latest in a chain of problems I've had after installing Windows 10. I have already done a system restore and reinstalled the GPU driver. It may or may not be related to the GPU problem, but the laptop also has random freezes. Sometimes, the laptop will randomly freeze, turn black for a second then come back, but there is an exclamation mark icon in the icon bar in the bottom right. All apps using the NVIDIA GPU will cease to work.
Every time I try to put put my laptop to sleep, hibernate, restart it or shutdown, it stalls for about 10 minutes before giving me a Driver Power State Failure.
Having installed "WhoCrashed" and "Windbg", I was able to determine it was related to "ntkrnlmp.exe", "ndis.sys", "raspppoe.sys" and a vpn driver at one point or another. I "believe" I managed to uninstall the offending vpn driver but of course still overall have the same issue.
This appeared to occur while trying to do a windows update last week but I can't be sure. I presume, there is a out of date or corrupt driver but just can't seem to determine which one.
