Windows 7: BSOD "System Power Device Failure"

03 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
 
 
BSOD "System Power Device Failure"

I'm running a few days old HP Pavilion dv6-6047cl laptop with the original OEM version of Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I brought the laptop with me walking from my apartment to college (about 10-15min) and when I arrived I found I had a blue screen about System Device Power Failure. Over the past year I had received this error 3 times on my old laptop (was running Windows Vista Home Premium x64), and found out that every time I received this error was when someone had tried to send me an AIM instant message. I have included the report from jcgriff2's program as well as a performance log.

The system power device is the HD. Please run a chkdsk /f


ALSO VERY IMPIORTANT. i WOULD REMOVE THE SYMANTEC AND REPLACE WITH MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS

A- CHKDSK /R /F:

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.


B- Elevated Command Prompt:


Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"


C-CHKDSK LogFile:


Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.

Double click on the Source column header.

Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Windows 7) (winlogon for XP).

Copy/paste the results into your next post.
