BSOD: Driver state power failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the past two weeks, I've been getting this BSOD error on my Lenovo laptop. I have even reset my laptop ("rest this PC"), but it's still happening.

    My laptop details:

    I have dump files, but I have no idea how to analyse them.

    My dump files:

    I had the latest Nvidia driver for my Nvidia Geforce MX150: 431.60 released on 23 Jul 2019.

    I was told to roll back the Nvidia driver (419.71) and I did thinking it would solve the problem, but nope.

    I have the latest BIOS for my laptop: 8TCN53WW15 released on 15 Jul 2019.

    Lenovo Drivers and BIOS update website for my laptop model, you can check my drivers for my device here (Lenovo Ideapad 330 151kb)


    I have run WhoCrashed,

    Here's what it says:

    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x1BFCC0) 
    Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFF8F09E63DD060, 0xFFFFFE89F568F7B0, 0xFFFF8F09FC42ECA0)
    file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: NT Kernel & System
    Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. A device object has been blocking an IRP for too long a time. 
    This is likely to be caused by a hardware problem. 
    The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time. 

    If I get to know the problematic driver I will update/uninstall it.

  • Hi,

    Did you make any changes before the issue start?

    Check if there is any related events generated during BSOD in Event Viewer.

    Please try the following methods and check if they help:

    1. Install the latest updates to aviod the known issues and make sure the microsoft drivers up-to-date:

    2. To try and isolate the cause, temporally disable power save using control panel, power options. Some driver issues are related to the various states of system hibernation and the suspending and resumption of power.

    3. You can try running the hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer.

    4. Check with the manufacturer to see if an updated system ACPI/BIOS or other firmware is available.

    5. General troubleshooting steps, for your reference: Troubleshoot blue screen errors

    Besides, please understand, the dump and logs analysis is not supported from forum side. If the issue is urgent and cannot solved by the solutions above, it's recommended to open a business case with Microsoft for further help. They have a higher level and may have more resources to help you.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Best regards,
