    Intermittent BSOD or reboot


    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T440s laptop. The laptop intermittently throws BSOD or simply restarting without a blue screen, or on occasion the laptop appears to restart while in sleep mode. Each time the System event log indicates a source of Kernel-power Event ID 41. Bugcheck code is 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFE001D41B18C0, 0xFFFFD000D4793960, 0xFFFFE001DB4B42C0)

    These events occur up to several times a day and in many instances occurs while the PC is not actively being worked on. It is not related to running a particular application (at least not in the foreground processes). Iíve attached the DM Log file.

    I've searched the Event Logs and don't see any obvious errors or warnings prior to the BSOD/reboot. I did run a utility called "WhoCrashed" and it is inconclusive as to any particular process or driver responsible. It does say that the error was caused by ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x150CA0). Error is Driver Power State Failure. It also notes that the problem is possibly "caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time". In the WhoCrashed report it suggests that the Intel WiFi link driver netwbw02.sys has been causing crashes on the computer, but I have the current Intel WiFi and Bluetooth drivers installed for the Intel AC7260 Dual Band Wireless. I've also reinstalled the AC7260 driver software in case I had corrupted driver., The reboot problem still occurs after updatingAttachment 61763.

    Any help you can provide on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Another note - I have two other laptops that are exhibiting similar symptoms (perhaps to a lesser/less frequent degree, but the same systems). When WhoCrashed is run against their dumps, the Intel netwbw02.sys is not mentioned as a possible problem in the report conclusion. This might imply that the netwbw02.sys is a red herring. Again any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello BornABruin, I've taken a look at your dumps and I'll try to help you solve your issue.

    I've gone back through your dumps to the beginning of February and they're all 0x9F which is a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE, and every single one of them blame the Sunplus Digital Camera driver is being flagged. Uninstall the software and test the system for stability.

    Code:
    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)
    A driver has failed to complete a power IRP within a specific time.
    Arguments:

    Arg2: ffffe001d41b18c0, Physical Device Object of the stack
    Arg3: ffffd000d4793960, nt!TRIAGE_9F_POWER on Win7 and higher, otherwise the Functional Device Object of the stack
    Arg4: ffffe001db4b42c0, The blocked IRP

    Thanks for your help Boozad -- I removed the driver you identified and I'm waiting to see if the problem reoccurs. It could take several days before it reoccurs.

    BTW, what do you use to read the dump files?
