Windows 7: BSOD After Pressing Shutdown

BSOD After Pressing Shutdown

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit onto a Samsung 840 250GB SSD and whenever I shutdown using the start menu, it'll say Shutting Down.. for about 10-15 minutes, then BSOD and give me "Driver Power State Failure". However, when I have Windows on my Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB HDD, it shutdown correctly and no BSOD. I have the same drivers and such and have updated them all to the latest.

I've attached the BSOD Dump files.
I've also tried my PC on Balanced with never sleep, never turn off HDD, and no hybrid sleep as well as Performance with the same settings as I've read SSDs don't fare well with Sleep and Hibernate.

Apply the latest version of nVidia display driver.
You may download it directly, from our forum link Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7; or you may opt for the Option 2 of Drivers- Download NVIDIA Drivers for “Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products” (it requires java installed).



Do some General USB related troubleshooting. For the port, first, uninstall and reinstall the USB ports drivers.
  1. Right click on Computer icon > manage. It will open the computer management window.
  2. Click on "Device Manager" in the left pane, it will list all installed devices up.
  3. Expand "USB Serial Bus Controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  4. Click on one item to select, then right click and uninstall.
  5. Do the same for all.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate drivers.
And, Disable USB Selective Suspense too.
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

For the devices, first, detach all the USB devices other than the keyboard and mouse.
Then, Update the drivers for them all, including the keyboard and mouse, if any third party drivers are installed for them. While powering off, disconnect all the USB devices before shutting down.

Let us know the results.
