BSOD on DELL M6600 workstation - DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)


I'm having random BSOD on a new DELL M6600 running Windows 7 Pro 64bit. OS is OEM and I have updated all drivers but problems randomly happen yet.

Tryied also to analyse minidump but I'm unable to highlight what is exactly the problem.

Can anybody help me? It is becoming a nightmare.

Thanks for any help.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

A driver (pci.sys) is taking far too long to complete a request (more than 10 mins) You have a few drivers (PBADRV.sys from dell) that arre over 3 years old and should be updated.

I would run a system file check to verify the OS and if the crashes continue we can start looking at hardware.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
