    BSOD Driver Power State Failure when waking from sleep


    New build i7 asrock motherboard W8 Pro. when waking from sleep everytime I get driver_power_state_failure BSOD.
    Looking for some help on where to start. Updated the bios and everything else works great.

    Thanks for any advice

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    You have 3 hard drives - what is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

    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)
    - 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
    - Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
    ....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.
    It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.
    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
    29 May 2012 - The frequency of BSOD's with SSD's seems to have been decreasing over the last several months. It may be approaching time to re-evaluate my stand on their suitability for use in production systems.
    10 Nov 2012 - I'm seeing an upswing in SSD errors - but most appear due to older storage controller drivers. I strongly suggest NOT using storage controller drivers that don't date from 2012 (if none are available, don't connect an SSD to that controller)
    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
    AsRock XFastLAN and XFastUSB have been known to cause BSOD's in some systems. Please uninstall them to test.

    If overclocking, please stop while we're testing. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has become stable.

    Memory dumps point at your Intel Storage drivers. Please visit Intel Download Center to get the latest version of the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) drivers. Then uninstall the current drivers (which may also be the latest version) BEFORE installing the freshly downloaded drivers. Then monitor for further BSOD's.

    As a precaution (since this involves the storage sub-system) please run these free diagnostics on all of your hard drives: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure and run the manufacturer's tools on your SSD.

    A previous BSOD blames k57nd60a.sys - a networking driver. This is either a second problem, or it's a sign of a low-level driver/hardware problem (they tend to spit out random errors).

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    Thank you so much for the time you have already invested!
    The power supply is a new Thermaltake TR@ 600 watt.
    uninstalled xfastlan and xfastusb for testing.
    went on Intel's download page for rapid storage technology drivers. my current version is 11.6.0.1030 the newest version is 11.7.0.1013 however if you look at the know issues some are worse then I'm experiencing. the only time I get BSOD is when waking up from sleep other wise very stable. Intelо Rapid Storage Technology Do you think I should still update to 11.7.0.1013? also look at resolved issues #4160677 maybe applies to me?
    I will update both MBfilt64.sys and cfosspeed6.sys this weekend and swap out my SSD drive for a standard drive. I have also installed intel's ssd tool kit and the firmware is up to date and drives check out good.I will also download the other hard drive program you suggested and check the drives.
    Still some work to do. I will report back soon with my progress.
    Thanks again for your help

    I always suggest updating - but you may want to hold out if you're concerned about it.
    But, IMO the updates are usually aimed at stability - so I'd think it'd be OK.

    When/if you do install the RST update, make sure that you have made an System Restore point (and maybe even a disk image) so that you can go back to the old version (if you want/need to).

    Good luck!
