Windows 7: BSOD after resuming from sleep/hibernate, and delayed shutdowns (9f)

BSOD after resuming from sleep/hibernate, and delayed shutdowns (9f)

Hi,

I have a Dell XPS 15z (L511z). I've noticed recently that when opening my laptop while its in sleep mode, the computer sounds like its coming to life, but the screen doesn't turn on. After a while, the BSOD shows up and restarts the computer.

Also, I always get the Waiting For Programs To Close message when shutting down, but there are no programs in the list. I usually just let it do its thing and it eventually shuts down.

Please find attached the dumps obtained via SF_Diagnostic_Tool.

Thanks in advance for your help.

This crash reports the 'High Definition Audio Bus Driver' (HDAudBus.sys) as the main culprit.
This driver is also updated through Windows updates.

Please try the following steps to see if they help:

1. Remove 'Avast anti-virus' from the system and install 'Microsoft Security Essentials'; check results.
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\avast! Free Antivirus
- Click avast! Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for avast! Removal to remove 'Avast' from the system
- Click Download Microsoft Security Essentials from Official Microsoft Download Center to download and install Microsoft Security Essentials.

2. Click Microsoft Windows Update to find the steps to install 'Windows Updates'. This is likely to update both the drivers, that were observed to cause the system crashes. (HDAudBus.sys & vwififlt.sys).

3. Almost all the crash reports mention 'Bug Check 0x9F: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE' as the error code. This bug check indicates that a driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. Installing Windows updates is likely to update the culprit driver. You may also try an anti-virus scan with 'Microsoft Security Essentials'. Would also recommend you to follow the steps listed in 'Option 2' of the following tutorial to run 'Chkdsk /F command from Command Prompt': Disk Check.

4. If the issue persists, try running hardware diagnostics to confirm the hardware functionality of the system. http://dell.to/17Ri00I

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings. Will take it forward from there.

Saurabh A,

Thank you very much for you help. These four steps solved my BSOD problem. I can now successfully resume from sleep/hibernate.

I'm curious why I needed to uninstall Avast. Should I avoid using it from now on?

Thanks

Hi ZosoCoder,

Glad that the issue is fixed; thank you for confirming.

'Avast' could be one of the possible reasons for the crashes. I have observed many users reporting better results with 'Microsoft Security essentials', instead. It is an effective anti-virus solution that comes with Windows updates. You may still want to try swapping the 'anti-virus software' again to see how the system behaves. If the issue re-occurs, it will confirm 'Avast' as the root cause. Otherwise, you may continue using it.

Updating Windows may have installed updates for the drivers 'HDAudBus.sys & vwififlt.sys'. That could have done the trick as well.

Hope you find the information useful. Do reply if you have any further questions. Would be glad to assist.

Hi Saurabh A,

It looks like I spoke too soon. It was working for a few tries, but yesterday I got the BSOD again with the same error after closing the lid of my laptop and returning to it a few hours later. The same thing happened: the laptop started up, but the screen was completely black. Then after a few minutes, the BSOD appears and reboots my laptop. So I did step four from your original reply and ran the PSA Diagnostics in thorough test mode. Everything passed.

I ran the SF_Diagnostic_Tool again, and attached the results to this post.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Saurabh A,

Thanks for the reply. I installed the three drivers and some quick sleep/hibernate tests and it seems to be working again.
I will leave it in sleep mode for a while like I did last time when it crashed. I'll reply here with the results.

Hi ZosoCoder,

Thank you for the response.
Things look settled now. However, you may want to observe the system for few more days to see if the issue re-occurs. Feel free to share the crash dump, if required. We will take it forward from there.

Let me know if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist you.
