Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

I have been getting the BSOD for the past 3 years (since I got the laptop from DELL). This is my work Laptop and it is annoying like hell now.

Any time my laptop tries to come out of sleep it locks up then a BSOD follows...

I have managed to track the problem using WinDbg to the following:

A driver has failed to complete a power IRP within a specific time.
Arg1: 0000000000000004, The power transition timed out waiting to synchronize with the Pnp
Arg2: 0000000000000258, Timeout in seconds.
Arg3: fffffa80066de040, The thread currently holding on to the Pnp lock.
Arg4: fffff800047ec3d0, nt!TRIAGE_9F_PNP on Win7 and higher

Debugging Details:

Implicit thread is now fffffa80`066de040

Now I don't know what this driver is for nor do I understand what is using this driver. Research states that it is an accelerometer. So if someone could please enlighten me as to what to do with this problem I would be very appreciative.

sorry for the large post but I was hoping to save you guys some time.

Many thanks

Apparently your RAID discs are failing to respond within a stipulated time period when the computer is waking up from sleep. Do you really need RAID there for the laptop? Decide it. If not, it would be the best (and the permanent solution) that you break the RAID, set the storage controller mode to AHCI and perform a clean reinstall of windows. The clean reinstall will be a must in that case, because the change in storage controller mode will make windows unable to boot.

If RAID is a must for you (it is not for most of us), update the intel IRST driver, which is too old.

Get it form ... or you may try to find an update in Dell's site too.

Also, follow Power Plan Settings - Change .... go upto point 5(B) and set teh time for hard driver to zero or never whichever is applicable there. Dont let the discs to go to sleep.

And, another most important thing is, free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus and Apoint.exe.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Let us know your decision and the resulting situation.

Hi Arc,

Many thanks for your help. I think that I will need to stick with the RAID at least for the time being. My boss is away for 'till the end of the month so no OS reinstall for now. I will follow the other steps and see if that fixes the problem. I will also mark the thread as solved and hopefully it can stay that way.

Your help is really appreciated. Best wishes.
