Have you become a victim of the driver_power_state_failure blue screen of death (BSOD)? Well, ‘join the club’…I know how stressing it can be when it happens, but in a minute I’ll show you how to solve it.

Error description
This error typically (but not always) happens in the following situations: during restart, shutdown, getting into/out of Standby or Hibernation mode. You’ll get that ‘nice’ BSOF (blue screen of death) together with a nice driver_power_state_failure error message (usually followed by STOP 0x0000009F, (9F), or “A driver is causing an inconsistent power state”)

Usually users of Windows 7, Vista (64bit and 32bit), XP, 2000, 2008 server

Who’s the ‘trouble maker’?
You don’t have to be a genius to figure out that there’s a ‘driver’ issue involved here…

The reason to all this is due to one of your drivers who won’t function properly (or not at all…) while your Windows changes between power modes (restart, shutdown, hibernation mode, standby mode).

It seems like one of your drivers, and it can be any of them – Windows system driver, motherboard driver, graphic card driver, mouse driver, other programs, external device drivers, is probably incompatible, obsolete, or corrupted.

Repairing that driver_power_state_failure error
You need to pinpoint that problematic driver and replace its correct, updated and intact version. The problem is that there are hundreds of drivers scattered all over your PC…now go find out which one is the problematic one…

Option-1: You can try and ‘isolate’ the source of that driver by uninstalling (one by one), hardware components and programs that you’ve installed lately. Uninstall one, restart, and see if the problem is gone.

If you’ve identified the problematic source, contact the manufacturers and ask them for their latest and correct drivers.

Option-2: This is the easiest and fastest way – install the following drivers scanner - in less than two minutes it’ll detect your problematic drivers and automatically replace them with their compatible and most updated versions. Don’t forget to restart your PC afterwards – in most cases this will solve the problem of this blue screen error.

Feel free to post your comments regarding this error.
I’m conducting a little research regarding the symptoms of this error, so feel free to share and post the symptoms that you’ve encountered – simply scroll down and post.


Tip! - Software and hardware developers continuously update their drivers due to bugs and upgrades. In order to avoid future problems it is recommended to check ALL your drivers from time to time (once a month or so) just to make sure that you are using the most updated and compatible drivers.

worked perfect, the only solution I found after 3days of hopeless surfing. Many thans. Good value for money.

I have Windows 7. I have the dreaded BSOD. Problem is, I can't get past the screen to even download the driver scanner. If I save the program to a thumb drive will it load from there once I plug it in?

Hi Lydia,

Download the program into an external drive or memory stick from another PC, then restart the problematic PC in 'Safe Mode' (see quick guide here), and then install and run the drivers repair tool. Let me know if that helps.
