    Repeated Driver Power State Failure on shutdown

    I have had this issue for a few weeks now. My PC will start stuttering, I can fix it temporarily by rebooting, however it hits the BSOD when I try to shut down. As it only bluescreens on shutdown when it is stuttering, I assume they are linked in some way, but that's for later. I have attempted to run Driver Verifier multiple times, it seems to have worked, I have got the Driver Verifier Detected Violation BSOD, but it has not told me what driver it detected. I may just not know where to look. I could use some help. included V2 log collector zip, would be nice someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks.

    Hello @brailecortex and welcome to TenForums

    Please can you upload the V2 log collector output to your post. Many thanks!

    I tried to, guess I didn't attach the files correctly. How's this?

    Thanks! That worked

    Working backwards through your dump files we can see the following two problems:

    1. Verifier caught a problem with SteamStreamingMicrophone.sys - please try to update or remove this driver for testing purposes. Try this link for more details: how to get rid of the Streaming Microphone and Steam Speakers on the Device Manager :: Steam Link General Discussions

    2. Driver Power state failure: FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: 0x9F_4_amd_sata_IMAGE_pci.sys
    Please try to update the chipset drivers for your motherboard.

    Hope this helps!

    Seemed to work for a bit, but just had it happen again. I removed the Steam Link drivers and updated all AMD chipset drivers, but it seems to not have fixed things. New log collector files:
    I tried to take a look at them myself, but there's a ton there and I don't know what to look for. Some pointers might be nice.

    You still seem to be getting the same power state failures associated with the PCI bus.

    It would seem that new drivers did not help. ASUS are currently working on a new BIOS for your system but it is only available as a beta version at the moment. Hopefully it will be released for mainstream use soon. It may help.

    In the meantime please list all the cards that are attached to the PCI bus - i.e. the cards inserted onto the motherboard.

    It might be worth updating all the drivers associated with these cards.

    okay, updated all I could and now replaced the motherboard. Ran verifier, it detected something. I'd really like to be able to find out what it detected on my own at some point. It's doing a similar thing as before but to a much lesser extent.

    The Driver Verifier has detected the nordlwf.sys driver as a problem. The easiest way for you to find out the answer on your own is to install WinDBG Preview from the Microsoft Store and use it to analyse the crash dump. Once you have installed the software double click on the crash dump file and it will start to analyse. it. There will be a prompt to select analyse -v in order to carry out the automated analysis. When you have done this you will see the following output and towards the end will be the Failure Bucket ID that lists which driver was implicated. The Driver Verifier bugchecks are often the 0xC4 code.

    DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
    because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
    administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
    If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, BugChecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
    be among the most commonly seen crashes.

    The Driver Power state failures are the same as before. Your AMD Sata drivers are still quite old. Did you update the AMD SATA/RAID drivers that are listed on the MSI website for your motherboard?

    I also noticed that since changing the motherboard it has not automatically activated Windows - you will need the retail product key for your Windows or a phone call to Microsoft to explain about the motherboard swap. This is because your digital license is hardcoded to the motherboard.
