Windows 7: Blue screen Drive_Power_State_Failure

02 Dec 2011   #1

Blue screen Drive_Power_State_Failure

So i have a pretty brand new computer and about 4 months in I get a crash with Drive_Power_State_Failure. I know crashes happen but i'm trying to keep this computer as clean as a whistle. So ideas would be nice. And I know this is not very specific, so most of you will ask for more detail, but that is honestly all I know. Attached is my memory.dmp file.
I have somebody helping me with this already, and this post is mainly so he can see my (huge) dump file (No viruses i'm pretty sure and only thing running at the time was steam) which was over 500 mb without compressing and is now 100 mb compressed. I still couldn't get it through google, so here it is on this site.
Once again, if you know answers to this thing, great. If i'm not being specific enough, which I probably am not, then just ignore this. Mainly so i could upload my DMP file for somebody to see.
Have a nice day.

Sorry, but a Memory.dmp file is too large to attach on this forum. In order to further assist you, we need the mini dmp files. If you follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, you can download an executable that will copy your dmp files into a folder in your documents folder. Then you can get the system report and put it in your documents folder and zip both files together (the instructions are very clear on how to do so in the above link). Thank you.

Hi, and thanks in advance for reading this. EVERY TIME I shutdown my computer it stays in the shutdown screen for about 5-10 minutes before going into BSOD (STOP: 0x0000009F). Built this PC myself about 9 months ago (first build, not very experienced), but this issue is recent (no hardware change)....
