    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE - Centrino Wireless-N 2230


    Hi,

    I last updated my Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 on May 26 to the newest driver available at the time through Intel's website. That turned out to be a mistake. It usually worked but about once a week, when waking up my computer, it would have issues connecting to my network. A Windows repair usually fixed it.

    Today I woke it up and could not connect at all. Repairing did nothing. I went into Device Manager and found that it said, roughly, "There is no driver installed for this device." I first tried to rollback the driver. Device Manager froze for about ten minutes. When it started working again, I disabled and re-enabled the wireless, found my network, entered my password, but it still wouldn't connect. I used HP Recovery Manager software to reinstall the original driver.

    When it was done, it prompted me to restart. After a while, I saw a BSOD labelled DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (Minidump is a separate attachment). After my computer booted up, I checked Device Manager. My wireless was disabled because of a Code 22: Windows disabled it because of a known issue. I manually enabled it and it now works fine with driver number 15.10.3.2 dated 22 August 2013. It's definitely older than the May 2014 driver but not the original system installed driver, 15.5.6.48 from November 2012, which seems to have caused the crash.

    I'm just wondering if my computer and wireless connection will remain stable and, if not, how I should fix it.

    I have Windows 8.1 on an HP m6-1158ca.

    Hi Malickfan,

    I have analyzed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of your dump file :-

    Now, we see that the "ntkrnlmp.exe" is blamed, but as we know that it is a Windows component, chances of it being at fault is very less.

    As it seems, that since your Wireless driver was causing the problem. It should probably work fine. The BSOD might be a one time issue. In case of further BSOD's please don't hesitate to post back here. In case you want the list of 3rd party drivers to update let me know and I will post it.

    Luckily my system decided to revert to the best driver on its own. I ignored the Windows Update driver. So far I have no issues with 15.10.3.2 dated 22 August 2013. I won't attempt an update of it again.

    Thanks!
