Windows 7: Shutdown Issues: Win 7 64 -bit

Shutdown Issues: Win 7 64 -bit

I have encountered two blue screens upon shutdown during the last couple of days.
Event viewer tells me this on both of them:

Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 11/2/2009 7:01:09 AM
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
Keywords: (2)
Computer: JPS
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="">

<Data Name="BugcheckCode">59</Data>

<Data Name="BugcheckParameter4">0x0</Data>
<Data Name="SleepInProgress">false</Data>
<Data Name="PowerButtonTimestamp">0</Data>

Sorry for the XML. I have attached a zipped minidump file to this thread for analysis. Any pointers would be appreciated.

There are several interesting titbits of info here...

Not that it's causing your problem, but I suspect the event subsystem has some sort of bug which causes the "BugcheckCode" to be misrepresented. You shouldn't ever experience a stop 0x59 in Windows 7, at least not unless a 3rd-party driver reuses that number for crashes which have nothing to do with the original meaning of the message.

Textually, 0x59 maps to PINBALL_FILE_SYSTEM, and I don't think I've seen one of those since the Win2000 days. The "pinball" it's referring to is a codename for HPFS which was still available as an optional component on Win2K, if memory serves.

Since Windows 7 wouldn't know HPFS if it bit it on the nose, there's no way you're experiencing a stop 0x59, and indeed the dump actually describes a 0x1A crash whose origins are sufficiently ambiguous to make me reluctant to describe it as a "hardware problem", even though I'm tempted.


- Make sure the BIOS is up to date.
- Try to update some of these drivers, the ancient ones in particular:

After that, upload more dumps as crashes occur, if they occur, and hopefully a pattern will emerge.

Thanks for the quick analysis

Thanks for looking at the dumpfile. My motherboard is kind of old (Asus K8N-E Deluxe), and I am running the most up to date released (not beta) BIOS (1011). I will check on the Si old drivers, but they may be the ones required for my legacy RAID on the MB, and may not have any new updates.

The x-10 driver was what Windows installed. I will check with the hardware vendor to see if they have anything more current.

Guess I should be shutting down more often, as this seems to happen when I leave the CPU powered on for a couple of days at a time. Issues started to happen after I updated my Bluetooth drivers from the original Win 7 vanilla drivers to the Broadcom version 6 ones to deal with a device driver not found issue.

Thanks again for the pointers.
