DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE With Ntoskrnl.exe 0x0000009f

» When I put my laptop into sleep by closing the lid or choosing sleep from start, I get a bsod (DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE ntoskrnl.exe 0x0000009f) when resuming. Also that for some reason I dont get the bsod when it puts itself to sleep (ie after timing out) but I do get it when it hibernates itself.

» Ntoskrnl.exe is a critical process in the boot-up cycle of your computer. Note: ntoskrnl.exe can be altered by Backdoor:Win32/Coolvidoor.B and its variants. If this process appears in WinTasks, please update your virus definitions immediately. This virus often causes BSOD.

  4. JOSHUA PARNES replied on March 23, 2013: » 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 - NICand WIFI - Sound and others - Power Management tab - uncheck Allow computer to turn off power. Maybe only one has an issue.

If you're not sure about MemTest results, you should try perhaps another power supply as that is the most likely component to fail over time i.e. you said it just started happening "out of the blue" if you'll pardon the expression!
