bsod shutdown then restart Results


Sponsored Links:



This is not a problem, just annoying, every once in a while, I click shutdown, or restart, the system goes through shutting down every program, logs off, gives me the System Shutting Down, screen for just a split second, then the BSoD. At which point I have to press and hold the power button, until it shuts down. I actually have it set so that if I just press the button quickly it will restart. Don't ask me how I don't remember it was one of those "exploring" through hidden stuff in XP when I found it, and now I can't find it again. Any way it still works in 7, except for these times. Upon reboot, no error msg about the problem, everything works fine, I can reboot, and shutdown several times before it does it again.
Right now I really don't care if it gets fixed or not, as it is not causing any problems. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue, or if it just my system.




And by shutdown I mean that. Not a sudden stopping of the computer but a shut down and saving of settings. Quite civilized really but then will almost immediately start up again or in the next few minutes. No error messages no BSOD
I've tried all the standard replace PSU and Ram and cleaned the motherboard of all dust. I have searched high and low and tried just about everything.
It's a Compaq Presario Desktop Athlon XP 2200 processor. 1 Gig ram using 2 sticks. Running XP SP3 with almost all the updates.
Been having some trouble with a few recently and if I could get it to stay running even in Safe mode I'd tell you which one's they are.
Have done mostly routine maintenance on the OS. Using AVG 9.0 Up to date and no virus notices. No new hardware, no new software other than a Kodak ESP3 printer. That was a real pain getting that to work, but I can see no reason why it would only mess up the Compaq and none of the other computers we use it with.
I've finally unplugged it.
It's my wifes computer and I'm sure there will be no joy in Mud-ville if I don't get this running without a reformat.
I've been following Fred Langa AND Woody since the early 90s and they have saved my bacon more then once.
I hope some of you faithful can help me too!
If you need more info just ask.
Thanks in advance!

Hey guys,

Yesterday I was using my computer, just browsing the Internet etc, and all programs crashed.
When trying to relaunch Chrome I got a message saying the file cannot be found, I could not open Windows Explorer either. I tried to shutdown but the whole computer froze for about 5 minutes, so I held in the power button and killed it.

On reboot I get a blue screen saying 'Your PC needs to be repaired. A required device isn't connected or cannot be accessed.' The error code is always either 0xc000000f or 0xc0000001.
When booting to my Windows 8 install disc I get the Windows logo for a couple of minutes then the loading swirl, then a BSOD that flashes up to fast for me to read, and the computer restarts.

The system is under a year old so a hardware failure seems unlikely to me.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.




This mess started after I had been playing Sims 2. The computer froze and BSOD popped up, in disbelief I didn't get any of the info from BSOD. I do remember it dumping memory or something.

After the shutdown/restart Windows failed to load/start. After some investigation and a similar issue happening before I discovered that the C: was somehow changed in the registry to a different drive letter, do not remember which. Using information of a MS KB article I editted the registry, changing the drive letters around as per the article's instruction.

After a successful boot, by this I mean Windows started and took me to the login/welcome screen. There I found that of 3 profiles; 1 admin and 2 standard, I could only log into one of each. The admin profile ran extremely slow and the standard profile, which rarely gets used ran fine. I could not get into the 3rd profile, it kept taking me to a "temporary" profile I can only guess because it did not have any of the personal settings that I had used in the original three.

The decision was made to start backing up personal stuff and do a "restore to factory settings." After the "are you sures," Recovery had almost completed when I received a message saying that it could not continue.

Now there is no Windows installation for which to recover. The D: drive which was a recovery drive/image is no longer there and is the CD/DVD drive now.

To make matters worse, I thought I might perform a fresh install of WinXP and then once that was up and running use my Win7 disk to perform a fresh install of Win7.

This seem to further complicate things, as now what was once a 250GB HDD now shows up as a 59GB drive. I am not certain, but the drives have somehow got partitioned.

After BIOS, I get the bootmgr missing error CRTL,ALT,DEL to restart message.

Please assist in anyway you can. I am a jack of all trades so to say, but a master of none. Please use laymans term, as I may understand some of "tech speak," but not all.

The computer is an HP G71, had Win7x64, 4GB RAM, any other info you need will have to come from the BIOS as I dont have much access to anything else.

---edit---

Computer will not boot from Win7 installation disc. Same bootmgr error as before. I have access to a very limited command prompt through use of a repair disc that would normally give options to recover if there was something to recover.





I never have this problem before. W7 was working just fine for almost 4 months.
I didn't install or plugin anything new.

I was typing something and then my "W" and "A" buttons don't work". So I restart my computer and then BSOD came up. I reboot my computer and type something then "I" button doesn't work. I reboot my computer again BSOD came up again. Now I can type just fine but I don't understand what happen. I didn't install any thing new.

First get rid of Daemon Tools (sptd.sys) use this tool DuplexSecure - Downloads get the correct version for your architecture click "UNINTALL" button.
This looks like a virus to me a99fq47k.SYS 3/28/2011 so unless you know specifically what the driver is for then grab a blank CD and this program Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Beta | Microsoft Connect download and double click it. It will build you a bootable CD from which you can perform a FULL offline scan of your system independent of the Operating System.
You should probably address the old drivers as well

First make sure your machine is configured properly to facilitate the collection of .dmp files.

Hi friends,

Since 2 or 3 weeks ago, I have faced a strange problem with my Desktop PC. I have Windows 7 Ultimate x86 SP1 with 4 GB RAM.

Each time I start my computer, I have to wait longer than usual.

Moreover, I am not successful in my first attempt to start the computer: It just restarts after a few seconds after displaying the 'windows is starting' screen. After restarting, it displays 2 options: 'Launch startup repair' or 'Start Windows normally'. If I choose 'Launch startup repair' it does nothing. If I choose 'Start Windows normally', I can log on to Windows. After that, I got a 'Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown' and here is the file that describes my problem (please see the attached file for more information):

Code: Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1 Locale ID: 1033 Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 74 BCP1: 00000002 BCP2: 8D8F5AA8 BCP3: 00000002 BCP4: C000014D OS Version: 6_1_7601 Service Pack: 1_0 Product: 256_1 Please help me to identify and solve the problem.

Thank you very much.

So this happened yesterday. I was playing GoW for around 20 minutes, and then the game just froze. No sound, and a frozen picture. So I decide to open up task manager and end the process. Following this, I re-open the game, play another ~20 minutes, and then the same nonresponsive screen shows up yet again. So I decide to wait it out, hoping it was just a little glitch that will work itself out. After about 10 seconds, my system Blue Screens and restarts. Now I notice that whenever I shut down, my computer blue screens as well (I have to manually hold the power button for it to truly shut down). Mind you, Gears worked fine on XP SP3 32-bit and this is the only game that creates the problem. Also, when I opened up task manager, I saw that there is a notification in the taskbar from Catalyst saying that my driver family has recovered from a problem.

Here are my specs
E8400
ati 4850 updated 9.5 Catalyst drivers (W7 64-bit)
Gigabyte P45
650watt PSU
Windows 7 Build 7100 64-bit

Hello all,

I'm going a bit out of my head here. Usually I am very good at googling up answers to my computer problems, but I haven't been able to find anything that is exactly like the problem I am having.

I am running windows 7 64 bit on my desktop PC. I have had it for...something like a year and a half now. And just in the last couple weeks I have suddenly had this problem. The issue is that my Windows apparently cannot shut down properly. It shuts down, there is no hanging up or anything. Any time I shut down or restart, it goes to the blue "Shutting Down" screen and message, the cursor does it's rotating "timing" thing, and then the system shuts down. But when it restarts, I get the "Windows did not shut down successfully" and it asks me if I want to start in one of the safe mode variations, or to start normally. Every single time. Windows shuts down, but then restarts and tells me it did not shut down properly. And many changes I made before shutting down were not retained, but some are. For example, I patched a game, and that information was retained on restart. But I moved some desktop icons around, bookmarked some pages in Firefox, closed Firefox pages, changed msconfig for a clean boot, and none of those changes were retained.

I have gotten a screen freeze and BSOD a couple of times in the last few weeks as well, but only a couple of times, while the "failure to shut down properly" problem happens with every single shutdown and restart I do.

I'm losing my mind a bit here. The only real practical problem it's causing me at the moment is that every time I restart my computer, I have to rearrange my desktop icons, and every time I open Firefox, it wants to restore a session I had closed and exited from, and I can't bookmark any websites. It's annoying, but doesn't keep me from functioning. But I fear/suspect there are larger problems lurking underneath, and I would just really like to get this resolved. If anyone can help, I would be eternally grateful. Let me know what I might need to upload or what other information you might need. Thanks so much for your time.




Since the last week I seem to be getting a random BSOD about two to three times a day. The computer just restarts itself and works normally until the next BSOD. Even though everything else seems to work properly this does worry me. I tried clicking check for solution when Windows gave me the "Windows has shutdown because of an unexpected error" window. I'm using Win7 Ultimate on a Toshiba Satellite L350D. Here's the error log, I hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks in advance.

I have had Windows 7 since January and it has worked fine...until now.

I put my computer to sleep and went to go eat supper. When I came back, I opened the laptop up like usual but it didn't restore windows. I didn't think much of it, as it has done this a few times in the past (has something to do with the laptop open/close function). So I turned it off and restarted windows. Got to the loading screen and then logged in. When I got to the desktop, everything loaded, but it then freezes. I wish I could say WHAT froze, but I can't. Windows was running and it even told me that it froze, but I couldn't do anything...not even ctrl+alt+del. I restarted again thinking that it might be caused by the laptop thing I mentioned. Nope...keeps doing it. I am sending this from safe mode with networking functionality.

I can't really describe the way it freezes. I can still use the mouse, Windows is still running, but everything else is frozen. It LOOKS fine, but if I click on anything, it stops responding yet Windows can still tell me that something isn't responding...it just doesn't say what is not responding. My only option is to do a manual shutdown. I installed some video drivers last week, but I have been playing games just fine. I also was having some BSODs, but they are being caused by something with nwifi.sys and Flash Player.




I keep getting BlueScreen errors and the pc is restarting after I switched motherboards from a gigabyte p55-usb3 to a biostar t5xe cfx-sli. I kept all the same components except I added another gtx 470. Thermal paste was freshly applied all around, all the idle and load temps seem normal. 30c/50c cpu and 40c/85c gpu.

Let me give you the rundown first:

1st Shutdown:

1. Installed Win 7 Prof 64 bit on freshly formatted hard drive
2. Installed Drivers from motherboard cd (Biostar T5XE CFX-SLI)
3. Ran Windows update for awhile, restarted a few times, installed other programs
4. While browsing the net the pc shutdown and gave me a prompt upon startup with a "problem event name: bluescreen"

It also gave me the locations of a dump and a system file which I have included in the Shutdown #1 file.

2nd Shutdown:

1. After reviewing the error and searching the web I had read that it could be a possible heat issue, which didn't make sense as the first time I was just browsing the web. Idle the CPU is 30c and the GPU (SLI) is 40c for each card.
2. I downloaded the Unigine Heaven benchmark and ran it
3. PC shutdown in the middle of the benchmark and gave me different results in the post shutdown message. Files are in the Shutdown #2 file.

I used arctic silver on the cpu and on the gpu's. Everything is connected tightly and the only other thing installed is a wireless pci card which should have no problem. I used to use the exact same components on a gigabyte board (p55-usb3). The only reason I installed the Biostar Motherboard was to install another GTX 470 and run SLI. Everything seems normal as far as temps, the pc isn't slow, etc...I just decided to turn it off to avoid any possible damage and take the files I grabbed and post on a forum. This seemed like a good place to continue. The sevenforums file is also attached. Thanks. (I labeled the shutdowns #1 and #2 just to make it easier...in total this happened 2 or 3 more times during senarios relating to shutdown #1.)

specified driver/device failed to respond within a certain amount of time. Which means your graphics driver wasn't installed properly. (Ignore the 6th entry - it's just repeating the problems caused by the other ones).

What I suggest: A clean install of your Graphics Driver.

How to do it (before doing these, download BUT DON'T INSTALL the newest drivers from Drivers | GeForce and save the download to your desktop)

1. Reboot the computer, repeatedly press F8 to access Advanced Boot Options. Select Safe Mode.
2. When Safe Mode has loaded, Start > QuickSearch “Device Manager” or Start > Control Panel > View by: Large Icons > Device Manager.
3. On Device Manager - Display Adapters > [select onboard GPU] – right click > Uninstall. Select the option Delete the driver software for this device.
4. Uninstall the GPU, and reboot the computer normally.
5. On Windows, wait for the card to reinstall. When the card is reinstalled, you should receive the message “Device [GPU Name] has been successfully installed – Geforce 310”. When this notification appears, close it.
6. Double-click your driver download (which should've been previously downloaded) and run it - on the install screen, make sure to tick the box labelled "Clean Install". Let the driver install itself, and then reboot once more.

Try running the computer again.

All drivers in red should be updated or removed - I will explain which to update and which to remove.

Hello there!

On Friday, I started having a problem with my system, running Windows 7 Ultimate, where I get a BSOD right at the login screen. Computer boots up normally, the blue login screen pops up, and immediately goes to the BSOD with BAD_POOL_HEADER at the top. It then will go back through the boot process, and if I select boot normally (or it times out) the same thing happens.

Going into Safe Mode (with networking) I can get into the Control Panel, Recovery, and choose a restore point. The computer then does it's thing, and boots up normally. As long as I leave the computer on, it runs fine.

It does this if I restart the computer or boot it back up after a shutdown. I've included the W7F information, hopefully that'll shed some light on the problem.

Thanks in advance! Attached Files W7F_31-3-2013.zip (2.35 MB, 3 views) Share Share this post on Digg Del.icio.us Technorati Twitter

At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all). There are no memory dumps in the uploaded files. Please do this:
Upload Dump Files:
NOTE: If using a disk cleaning utility, please stop using it while we are troubleshooting your issues.
Please go to C:WindowsMinidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service. Then post the link to it in your topic so that we can download it.

Also, search your entire hard drive for files ending in .dmp, .mdmp, and .hdmp. Zip up any that you find and upload them with your next post.

Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDumpMore info on dump file options here: Overview of memory dump file options for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2 Please check to ensure that you have all Windows Updates (you have 137, most systems have 150 or more). It may take multiple trips to get all of them.

You have a 802.11bgn 1T1R Wireless USB Adapter
I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful. We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
05 Jan 2013 - very interesting post about difficulties with the Marvell controllers even when not connected to the SSD drives: https://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cra...tml#post169956
27 Feb 2013 - I'm starting to see much better reliability with SSD's using current (mid-2012 and later) storage drivers. I have withdrawn my objections to using these devices in everyday systems. This device has issues:
sbwtis ROOTLEGACY_SBWTIS000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. This device has problems and must be fixed. I suspect it's GFI Firewall SDK Transport Inspection System Driver - but haven't had time to do much research (I'm late for work right now).
Please un-install it, then un-install the device from Device Manager




I'm working on a used Gateway M-Series laptop, model number: W650I. The laptop runs fine, but whenever I try to boot into Windows with the hard drive that came with it, I get a BSOD! It essentially reads:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /f to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer. Technical info: STOP: 0x0000007B, 0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC00000034

Thinking that it could be an issue with the drive, I took it out and put it a drive from a Linux machine, and the Gateway booted up normally. I also took the Gateway drive and put it in the Linux box, and the computer gave me an endless reboot cycle of "Windows is loading files." So the Linux drive works in the Gateway and in its own computer, but the Gateway drive works in neither. Simple, right? Just fix the drive; problem solved. Not so fast.

Now I know for a fact that the prior owner of the Gateway infected the machine with all kinds of malware, and a lot of it was never removed. Since Windows was compromised with so many viruses and other nasties, I simply decided to start with a clean slate. So I formatted and reinstalled Windows 7 on the drive. Knowing that formatting doesn't remove all malware, I also hooked the drive up to other computers and ran:

1.) An Microsoft Security Essentials scan. Results were clean.
2.) An AVG Internet Security version 9 scan, twice, and results were clean.
3.) Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool, which took over two hours. Results were clean.

I ran CHKDSK twice on the drive, once from another installation of Windows, and it did report that it had repaired some bad sectors. I used EASUS Partition Manager to run a surface test on the drive, and it came back with a couple of bad sectors. So it would appear that the drive may have been damaged by too many incorrect shutdowns or malware, and wouldn't work at all.

Not true. Normally I would have thought that the drive was toast, since it didn't boot up into either computer. However, I hooked it up to my own custom built computer. . . and it worked! Windows booted normally, installed updates normally, ran its programs correctly, all without error messages. So why isn't it working in the Gateway laptop?

I thought it might have something to do with the Gateway's RAM. So I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic twice, and it did not report any errors. The BIOS recognized all the RAM on its summary page, and emitted no error beep when the system started. The Linux drive also booted up with no problem. Just to be sure, I checked the RAM, each stick in a different module, while booting up from the Gateway hard drive, but still encountered the BSOD. The RAM looks fine, and the contacts were not dirty or damaged. I reseated the memory, just to be sure nothing was loose, but to no avail. Therefore I think the RAM is exonerated as a possible culprit.

Windows also would not respond to any of the F8 commands. If I told it to boot into Safe Mode or Last Known Good Config, it would still bluescreen. I ran startup repair on the drive after one such failed attempt, and I did get an error message explaining why Startup Repair couldn't fix the drive, but I don't remember what it was.

Since the Gateway drive is from Western Digital, I downloaded and ran the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic program. The drive passed the SMART test and the WD quick test without issue. I was going to run the extended test, but after I saw the estimated time sitting at 19 hours after running it for 120+ minutes, I decided to stop the test. For what it's worth, it didn't report any errors during the first two and a half hours I was running it.

I'm wondering if the BIOS on the Gateway is infected somehow. Sure, I can access it without issue, but maybe it has some sort of malware in it that could be interacting with the Windows 7 bootup sequence, which is causing the BSOD. Remember, the Linux drive booted fine on it, because Linux wouldn't get infected with a Windows BIOS virus. I could try resetting the motherboard, or flashing the BIOS, but since I can't actually boot into Windows, I'm not sure how I'd do that.

The one thing I don't understand is that the hard drive works in my computer, but bluescreens in the Gateway. I've checked to ensure that the drive is properly attached and secured in the laptop before I boot the computer. In fact, Windows gets as far as the startup splash graphic before the BSOD hits, so I don't think it is a bad or faulty connection with the laptop's SATA port.

Maybe there is some malware in the drive that is eluding my AV scans? Is there a really thorough virus checker that will scour deep down into the sectors, where a rootkit or something could be hiding? And can anyone recommend any effective third party disk checkup and repair utilities? Maybe the built in Windows features aren't telling me the whole story.

I've exhausted all of my tricks, so anyone else here is welcome to try their magic and find a solution to this Gateway dilemma!




Hi there,
I have an MSI M677 laptop with 2GHz dual core AMD64 TL-60, 2GB ram, and GeForce 7600 agp.

I went to reinstall my Vista HomePremium last night due to frequent shutdowns and BSOD(due to an nvidia driver, but I thought that agp driver alone cannot cause that many slowdowns in the system). Ran memory tests and checked disk for errors before- checked out fine.

Went to a restore manager before computer booted up, chose to restore computer to manufacturer NB settings. It started reformatting the hdd and then I got the bsod, the message is driver_irql_not_less_or_equal and mentions nvstor.sys file. I did some googling and found that its an nvidia driver. I found no solutions, just read about people having to reinstall vista.

So after the bsod I restart the system and try to restore again, but at this point it had tried to format my drive so all the machine does is goes in the loop of rebooting,showing the MSI post screen, rebooting and so on.

So I boot from CD and try to install Vista. It copies files and get to the point of expanding them, then gives the bsod at the 0% or 1% mark of expanding files with same nvstor.sys message.

Im really stuck between a rock and a hard place here, without an OS and without being able to install an OS I really dont have any ideas as to what else to try.

EDIT: also it's 32mb Vista




Hello everyone, I installed win7 yesterday and just finished setting everything up the way I wanted it. Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขve only had to shutdown/restart a few times so far. The first time shutdown took so long I just lost patience with it and held the power button. The second time was last night, I shutdown and went to sleep with it trying to shutdown. This morning when I turned it on it said windows had recovered from an unexpected shutdown. I chose the button that said check for a solution on line. It scanned for a bit then the window closed. ? I tried to shut it down again, this time getting a BSoD. All I could see before it went away was: BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER. Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขve had some problems with an external 4-way powered USB hub in the past so I disconnected it and tried again. This time after a second or two all my remaining USB devices turned off like they should, but the system remained on; stuck on the รขโ‚ฌล“Shutting Downรขโ‚ฌย screen. After about 9 minutes I held the power button again. It didnรขโ‚ฌโ„ขt have any unexpected shutdown messages when I started it back up but something has got to be wrong. If anyone has had a similar problem or knows how to fix it your help would be much appreciated. Thanks




For a while (ever since I updated my BIOS, I think) my computer have been taking around 10 minutes to shut down and after the 10 minutes it shows a blue screen for a second and then it restarts/shutdown. I recorded the computer screen while it was shutting down and was able to take a screenshot of the blue screen. This is what it says:

Code: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. Restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as catching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components , restart your computer, press F8 to select Advances Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

STOP 0x0000009F: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
Usual causes: Device driver.

We really need to see the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

The .dmp files are located at C:WindowsMinidump. Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.

Go to your C:WindowsMinidump folder. Copy the .dmp files to a new folder on your desktop. Zip up that folder and attach to a post.

Please see: How to ask for help with a BSOD problem Following Method 2:
Download and run the SF Diagnostics Tool. Right click the SF Diag tool and select Run as Administrator before running. When the reports have been created, zip them up and attach to a post.

Download and run CPU-Z. Take screenshots**/snips of the Mainboard tab, Memory tab and all the slot #'s under the SPD tab.
Go to Post Reply, click on the Go Advanced button and attach the screenshots**/snips to your post for all the RAM experts to see by using the paper clip you will find on the top toolbar. Do not zip them up.

What happened is kinda of long so I have simplified it but if you want to read the long roundabout version of what happened be my guest.

Short: My computer has random shutdowns. The power cuts out completely, no BSOD, no dump file. In event viewer it says "Kernel-Power Event Id: 41". I have reformatted my computer 3 times and still have the same issue. The issue does not happen in Ubuntu or when I am in the BIOS or running a live CD of sorts. I have no idea what to do

Long: I come to you as a last resort. I am one of those teen nerds that can usually solve any computer problem but I have tried EVERYTHING and I am turning to you as a last resort and hoping that you see and respond to this. Many people on the internet have this issue with no solution.

It first started a few days ago. I have had Windows 7 running on my system fine for at least 6 months and then it randomly shut off while installing Adobe CS5. When I restarted, it got to the desktop. As the computer was connecting to my network, the computer froze, nothing worked except the mouse.

I manually rebooted it. After that it would shut off anywhere from the time, the Windows booting screen showed up to less than a second after the desktop loaded with a BSOD. (Never enough time to do anything)

I switched out my RAM (from 2GB@533 MHz to 4GB@800 MHz) and Video Card (from nVidia 8600 GTX to nVidia 9800 GTX+), reformatted my computer, and had the same issue. I reinstalled Windows again and same exact issue.

I took apart my computer, reassembled it, zeroed out my hard drive, and ran diagnostics on my hard drive and memory with no errors. I installed Windows 7 again. While downloading updates it shut down. Now when I start it up it shuts shown within a few seconds from turning on or may take half an hour to shut off. In error reporting, it says that the Event Id is 41 and the Source is Kernel-Power.

It is not a result of insufficient power because I have a 1000-watt power supply (don't ask me why). I also have also made sure it is not viruses because everything I used was either formatted or scanned with four different anti-virus software (ESET NOD32, Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, Avast, and Advanced System Protector).

I have done everything of my knowledge I can do except test every hardware piece which I do not have enough money for. But I have ran a diagnostics on all my hardware with no errors. The only thing I haven't done was let a memory test run for long amounts of time (i have done it for about 30 minutes). But I have done a stress test on my CPU for a few hours/

Do you know what I can do to fix this shutting off problem?
