Debugging :: BSOD Waking From Sleep And Startup Hanging
Mar 12, 2014
Have attached the SF diagnostic zip.
My system is Windows 8.1, Samsung notebook, i7, 8gb RAM and 1tb hard-drive.
I updated the Intel Rapid Storage Driver but no improvement in situation of BSOD on waking up from sleep. Basically, the screen/desktop is visible and I can move the cursor and try to double click on programs, before getting the BSOD (collecting errors and restarting) screen.
I always do 'full shutdowns' /have disabled fast startup. Have also disabled some startup apps such as google updater and a couple others but the laptop is still taking around 3 minutes to boot with no HDD light activity for a couple of minutes (is this normal when fast startup is disabled???). Shut downs /entering sleep mode are swift.
On another note, Synaptics driver isn't installing and I was told that would work (for some reason) but that may not be relevant.
I took my computer to a computer repairs to get my fan fixed and when I got it back I found that my computer kept crashing when waking from sleep. It happens every time and is inconvenient as it just resets. It also takes longer to turn on, it has a black screen for a short amount of time, it was not like this before, I can put up with the added turning on time but I need to be able to sleep and wake my laptop without issues.
I did a clean install of Windows 8.1 recently. Now when my computer wakes up from sleep I receive a DRIVER_IRQ_NOT LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD related to cmudaxp.sys, which I've discovered is related to my Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card. I am running the Windows 8.1 beta drivers directly from Asus's website, and the drivers were working fine before my clean install. What could be causing this problem now, after everything was fine before?

I had a problem a few months ago on Windows 8.1 I was unable to solve so I reinstalled windows 8 and was able to put my computer to sleep and wake again. Upon re-updating to Windows 8.1 I once again have the problem of a crash when trying to come out of sleep.
I tried Windows 8.1 again because of hardware changes that allowed me to uninstall a few outdated drivers, but that did not fix the problem. What may be causing it to crash when trying to wake?

I've been having 3 different BSODs the last while. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR, and SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. The bug check codes are 0x1000007e or 0x0000003b for the system_service_exception.
My laptop is running windows 8.1, it is an Asus G46vw. I've updated my video drivers, both intel and nvidia. I've updated other drivers that i can find updates for. I've run memtest 86+ 5.01 on both sticks of ram individually, and they both pass multiple passes. I've also updated my Intel SSD to the newest firmware.
The crashes happen when the computer is waking up from both sleep and hibernate. They have been more frequent lately (4 crashes the last 9 days). I've attached the files from sf diagnostic tool.
I just got a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad T440p on Friday and to my surprise it came loaded with Windows 8 and not Windows 8.1. I've been struggling to upgrade to Windows 8.1, initially getting a BSOD during the install. Now I've gotten past the install and am always getting it to get suck at the Log in screen with the "Please Wait" message. Eventually it will lock up and get a BSOD "driver power state failure" message.
I have the latest video card drivers, latest wifi drivers, latest power management drivers. Everything updated from the Lenovo website and Windows Update site.
I am posting this message from Safe Mode and it's been the only way I've been able to get on it since upgrading to 8.1.
I've tried to isolate what could be the culprit driver, but have been unable to do so, so I've attached my SF Diagnostics zip file. I've run SFC /Scannow and it found no errors. I had absolutely no problems at all when I was running Windows 8, so I don't suspect any type of hardware issue.
My system is old : MSI Neo2 Nforce3 + HD4650 Radeon AGP + 2 GB mem + AMD Athlon 3000+
However, I wanted to try Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation for it and was able to install it successfully with 32 bit version (64 bit didn't work). I installed Radeon legacy AGP Hotfix 12.6 drivers that seem to work for the old AGP card giving Youtube HD playback! Not too shabby for a single core beast.
So I have been happy with the system performance (faster to boot than XP etc.).
However, I have encountered two problems that I haven't been able to resolve:
1 - Realtek Gigabit Ethernet (8111) fails to initialize the Internet on some boots, requiring enable/disable driver to make it work. I have installed newest drivers from Realtek website but no effect.
2 - When the system goes to sleep, it wakes up with black screen and no way to get picture back except resetting the computer. I have tried to change my MB BIOS setup (I have the latest BIOS installed) to disable S3 and use only S1 mode but to no avail. Black screen awaits in every wake up. I have also experienced once the driver_power_state_failure error..
So, I see there are many posts about black screens and sleep modes but I haven't found the solution for Nforce3 motherboard AGP setups yet.
So a few moments ago I had my first BSOD (since I changed my failing HDD with an SSD). It happened when I opened the lid and was about to enter my password/PIN @Windows 8 lockscreen. I usually press enter on the numpad to bring up the password/PIN prompt screen and when I did that I got a BSOD saying "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL".
I had Google Chrome running in the background with about 3 tabs (not running any demanding sites). I had IOGraph running in the background (it detects mouse movements and stops and puts it on an image file to make it look nice, again nothing too demanding).
I updated my GPU and Bluetooth drivers about 2-3hrs before it happened. They were the latest Intel HD4000 and Bluetooth (integrated in Intel Centrino Advanced-N6325) from Intel's site. All of this was after restarting post-driver updates.I have never had a BSOD, at least for the last 6-7 months (when my HDD failed). S.M.A.R.T. data for my SSD has not changed and shows no abnormalities.
I bought this laptop October-13 with Windows 8 preinstalled. It had a few hiccups after the first month, but its just been getting worse and worse. Sometimes it will just freeze, other times it will freeze and BSOD. And its always a kernel_data_inpage_error. It happens pretty much while doing anything else then playing games, especially when playing video, be it streaming or local files.
I have a Samsung Series 5 laptop that I got last summer that has given me a series of problems, the biggest of which was the Windows 8.1 upgrade. That's been undone now and it boots properly and works well again, except that when starting up, or waking from sleep, it will restart and give me the little message that says my computer had a problem and had to restart and do I want to send the dumps to Microsoft. It used to do this before Windows 8.1. It has done it twice in the past 24 hours and I tried to read my minidumps but of course cannot without installing the whole SDK which I hope not to do. I downloaded the diagnostic tool and ran it and have the result to attach. I hope this is right.
The PC is a Samsung running Windows 8, 64bit. I have Online Armor firewall, Emsisoft Antimalware, and Avast antivirus. Did I have omitted anything. I have the minidumps zipped up, if they are not included in the diagnostic file.
My system(HP pav-g6) is dual booted with win7 and win 8.1 I have installed all recommended drivers from HP and done all windows updates. I crash trying to wake from sleep. In win 7 this problem does not occur. Check disk, seatools, & memtest have already been completed with all passes.
I am facing a BSOD every time my new ASUS laptop running Windows 8.1 goes to Sleep and I try to wake it up. The BSOD displays the error message Driver_Power_State_Failure. I have attached the files from the SF diagnostic tool.
Every few days my computer will BSOD when waking from sleep. The screen will display this message as the error "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL cmudaxp.sys". Also sometimes the system will crash during sleep but no mini dump will be created. I have looked at the minidumps that were created and the only thing its pointed to were the cmudaxp.sys driver, hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe. I tried reinstalling the 22.214.171.1242 drivers for the soundcard but that did not solve the problem. Today i reverted back to older drivers 126.96.36.1991 and will see if this fixes it. .dmp files included in attachment.
Responding to an error code while attempting an install of arcgis, I reduced the amount of RAM for startup under msconfig, advanced, boot.ini. Now I get the bsod with error code bad_system_config_info. I can't access Windows in any mode but can get to the black screen command prompt line.
Recently I've been receiving BSOD errors by waking my computer up from sleep mode. I have an log dump attached but I also received a suggestion on the error screen stating "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA".
