BSOD Driver power State Failure

Hi my Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop has been having the BSOD issues, these days if I shut the lid down, the laptop does not hibernate, even though the power settings are such.

I have got the blue screen a number of times, I have also restored the laptop to an earlier restore point, but it has not helped solve the problem.

I'm attaching the dump files as instructed, plz help me resolve this issue......


Thanks

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please upload your msinfo32.nfo file. To get this: Start Menu -> Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box -> When it opens, go to File, Save -> Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember -> Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info -> Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder -> Upload the .zip file here.

The BSOD seems to be cause by HotSpot shield driver and Symantec/Norton seems to be contributing to it. (FYI, Norton is a frequent cause of BSOD-s.) I would suggest you to uninstall Norton and see if the problem persists, replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.
Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Thanks a lot KoolKat...........I will be taking all steps as specified, as of now attaching the msinfo32 zip.

My frnd has a dell laptop too, almost the same config and has Norton anti virus and this person has never had BSOD... and is the microsoft security essentials better than the other antivirus available??

Thanks for the msinfo file.
1. Despite of everything being identical, there is no problem on his/her system but yours. That's the difference between the two. (or say...exchange yours with your friend, the situation will be reversed).

2. MSE and Malwarebytes, both are good enough. If you're afraid of viruses, you can run Windows Defender Offline and Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller anytime you want, they are free and do not consume much time.

3. These BSOD issues may not persist in the latest version of the antivirus software but I doubt because antivirus updates/change of settings/or drivers should never be a cause of a dreadful thing as BSOD. You may want to consult with the Norton Users Discussion Forum - Norton Community and/or see what they have to say. They would probably say something similar to what I said, uninstall completely and reinstall the product etc.
For the time being, perform all the suggestions and let us know your feedback

Thanks KoolKat, the issue of BSOD seems to be resolved as of now

however the machine switches off on its own when the lid is shut down(on battery), even though the power settings are for it to hibernate....... and on power the machine sleeps and I have press power button to shut it down and restart, as the screen is off and it doesn't get going even after touching any key on the key board.........

Did you check if the laptop is overheating? Do you have a cooling pad for it?

If you have made any changes to the power options, please set them back to default.
