Hi all,

Win8 , dell laptop, every day (when computer is left alone for some time) it reboots (bsod)
DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009f

viewed the dump files in BlueScreenView program, how can I deduce from it what's the faulty driver ?

attaching the dump files here and would be happy to hear an explanation of how you figure out which driver is the faulty one.


thank you!

In addition to my previous update, i just analysed the minidump (attached). Unfortunately there are few hotfixes for Windows7 but not for Windows 8. Please have a look at this link which details few things to check http://www.troubleshootwindows.com/windows-7/fix-stop-0x0000009f-driver-power-state-failure-in-windows-8-7/

Your dumps all point to bcmvw164. I assume that to be a driver, maybe for a broadcom NIC or something similar. So first check if you can update your drivers to the newest version. After that check the power settings of your PC, particularly for the NIC's. I would disable any power saving features they may have set currently.
