STOP Error

I am running Win2k Pro with Service Pack 1 and whenever I try to shutdown/restart/hibernate/standby i get a Blue Screen error of the following

STOP 0x0000009F
Driver_Power_State_Failure

So this is odviously something to do with power settings, maybe an API option

Please try to disable all the power options in your BIOS and let only Win2k handle the power management.Then see what happens.

Hi,

Try this ...

http://www.jsiinc.com/SUBF/TIP2600/rh2614.htm

2614 > Windows 2000 fails with STOP 0x0000009F DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE?
If you receive the subject message, a driver does not handle power state transition requests properly. This most often happems during shutdown or during suspending or resuming from standby or hibernate mode.
You must update or remove the offending device driver or file system filter driver, possibly installed by an anti-virus, remote control, or backup program.

To locate the offending driver:

1. Use %SystemRoot%\System32\Sigverif.exe to check for unsigned drivers.

2. Check for driver updates from your systems vendor.

3. Update any software that contains file system filter drivers.

4. Uninstall non-critical devices and sofware in an attempt to isolate the offending driver.

5. Install an alternate copy of Windows 2000 in a different partition. Add drivers and software until you locate the offending driver

Cheers,

T.

Hi,

http://www.windows2000faq.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=19972&Key=Desktop

The easiest way to fix it is to perform the following steps:

Create a hardware profile and boot into it.
Go to the device manager (My Computer, Manage, Device Manager), select View, Show hidden devices, and disable all suspect devices (i.e., non-Microsoft devices) for the current hardware profile. (You disable a device on the General tab of the device's property sheet.)
Reboot using the same hardware profile and try to reproduce the problem. If you can't, start re-enabling drivers and rebooting until the problem reappears. Then delete or update the offending driver.
If the problem persists, disable all unnecessary drivers, update the necessary ones, and try again.
See Microsoft article Q246243 for more information.

Cheers,

T.
