Windows 7: BSOD Driver_Power_State_Failure

BSOD Driver_Power_State_Failure

Hello all, recently since Thursday night I have been getting this BSOD code. I've tried solutions from threads here and other websites, but none of them seem to fix my issue. Since I am not too tech savvy with these dump logs, I've decided to go ahead and post them to see if you guys can fix my issue. The BSOD always occurs on shutdowns or restarts after the computer hangs at "Windows is Shutting down." Then, after about 10 minutes, the BSOD occurs. Thanks in advance.

Crashes indicate Norton being a possible cause. Remove Norton and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials to see if it provides more stability. Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software. Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. They do not cause blue screens on the system as other AV products do. You may however install Norton back if it not directly the cause of your crashes.

Microsoft Security Essentials, Free antivirus for windows and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

  • Do not start the free trial of MalwareBytes, unselect that option when prompted.

  • Update and make full scans with both separately.

Scan your system with the following:

Run Memtest86+ for at least 8-10 passes. It may take up to 20 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
