Windows 7: Had to force shut down, BSOD after. Created dump file restarts okay.

Had to force shut down, BSOD after. Created dump file restarts okay.

HP DV7 6143cl
Windows® 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit)

I had something hang up and prevented shutdown so I forced shutdown and of course a blue screen occurred afterwards.

A couple of days before the 'hang up - forced shutdown - blue screen' I noticed high CPU usage and the fan running at high speed. It was not until I put the computer in sleep mode and exited that I saw the message window saying (the bits I remember)

Debug Assertion Failed!
Svchost plugandplay
Abort Retry Ignore

I clicked Abort and the CPU went back to normal.

The next day I installed the software for a WD Passport 2 TB external hard drive. It was installing and trying to update multiple components at the same time but ultimately installed and completed the first back up.

Later that day Windows update came on and tried to update the WD SES driver but failed because the device was not connected. (per the update error message).

Finally the hang up - forced shutdown – blue screen occurred. I was just shutting down as I normally would. I have automatically restart turned off so I restarted normally and looked at the dump file with Who Crashed hoping something obvious would be shown.

I downloaded the SF Diagnostic Tool and zipped the results with 7 Zip

The computer has started and shut down normally several times.

Hi,

Your crashes are related to possible memory corruption and Norton AV / Symantec:

I would advise to remove Norton AV and Symantecs:

https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/kb20080710133834EN_EndUserProfile_en_us?product=home&version=1

I would advise as an alternative to install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability
compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. Very light and free.

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

Also run SFC to check the integrity of all Windows 7 system files:

Click on the Start > Type in search cmd
Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
Type SFC /scannow at the prompt (note the space between SFC and /scannow)

Post back any results.

Downloaded the memtest86 file and burned to disc. I had to change the boot order for it to run, but once started I let it run for several hours. It said 0 errors.
I scheduled and check disk and it said no bad files, no bad sectors.
I will run the system file checker this weekend.

A lot of computer techs really dislike Norton. Why is that? Oddly it comes preloaded on many machines.

It is a very common cause of BSOD's seen here, although not exclusively so.

Norton and McAfee, they are equally likely BSOD causer. But if it does not crash, Norton is a very good AV.

Okay a similar thing happened again. This time i let the machine continue to attempt shutdown untll it produced a stop error. This time it would not start normally until startup repair ran.
I am begining to understand what the following means. Somewhat.

The DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE bug check has a value of 0x0000009F.
This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.
0x4 (Windows XP or later)
Time-out value, in seconds.
The thread currently holding onto the Plug-and-Play (PnP) lock.
The power state transition timed out waiting to synchronize with the PnP subsystem.

I don't understand how a computer can work so well when running and give no indication of a problem (CPU and memory usage normal) but fail to sheu down.

Please let me know what you see in the SF tool files. If it is Norton again I will remove it.
Thanks in advance

I will probably have to up load a new SF tool file. It was compressed with 7zip but got renamed .zip.

Hi,

Yes it is mainly Norton as well as Intel Storage Drivers:

Please run the Intel utility to see if it picks up newer drivers:

Yes I did run the SFC but zipped with 7 zip and then called it a .zip file and it cannot be opened. I forgot that I can click send to compressed folder and not use a stand alone zip app.
I will upload the SFC I made right after the event.

I ran the intel driver detection a few days ago at someone elses suggection.
The chipset drivers were up to date. I will run it again to check the Storage Drivers

I will post again later.

It did not find the storage drivers (iaStor?)

The graphics driver actually is an AMD / Intel package from HP

The file aberfoyle 2 on this post is the latest SFC

BTW I ordered recovery discs from HP just in case
