• Maybe anyone can tell me how to get more information on my latest Blue screen.

    Windbg resulted in : A driver is causing an inconsistent power state.

    But I can't figure out which driver

    We got this on 4 machines with this issue when shutting down or restarting windows. Disabling "power safe" function for the network cards seems to fix this blue screen on 3 of those. But one still pop up with the blue screens when shutting down.

    The OS is Windows 2000 Server btw.

  • I use a utility called BlueScreenView, retrieve the minidump file(s) and it can give some insight on the cause of the BSOD, drivers involved in each instance, a screenshot of the BSOD message, etc... Support for Windows 2000 stopped in 2010 if memory serves me correctly. if it's driver-related, I'd say it'll be hard to get any updated drivers, you'd probably have to revert to an earlier driver, maybe introducing other problems.

  • I would advise a new server with Hyper-V and move our old servers to virtual machines

    the BSOD data presented suggest a possible bad stick of memory, given the vintage of your servers it probably high time you modernized

    Place your rig specifics into your signature like I have, makes it 100x easier to understand!

  • Some more information: There are 4 PC's. All 4 have same setup.

    Only one of them brings up this message. The drivers and the hardware is windows 2000 certified.

    Moving to a "modern" system is out of discussion, we had troubles to find hardware that provides old 5V PCI.

    Moving to a newer Windows is not of any possibility. There is no replacement for the measurement card yet, maybe planed for 2019, if I can trust the manufacturer.

    You are all invited to write a Virtual driver for visualization.

    The PC's don't have and will never have internet.
