Question DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSOD

Hi all,

Yesterday and today, upon first boot/log in I'm met with the a BSOD with the above description.

Using DriverView I determined my NIC driver was a bit out of date, so have updated that now. Unfortunately, if yesterday was anything to go by, I can't replicate the BSOD on demand, so not sure if it's worked or not.

Can anybody decipher the DMP file for me? Hopefully it gives more of an indication....

Thanks

unless you turned fast startup off (like I suggested in discord), you should be able to replicate it just by turning pc off and restarting, as that is same action as you go through at start of new day. PC with fast startup on isn't off when you shut it down, its in a hybrid hibernate state, Its that fact that messes with older drivers that assume PC was off when you start them up again.

I have sent link to gardenman already

The Dump file indicated problem with RAM and/or overheating. First you should check you chassis for a build up of dust, with special attention to the PSU and chassis intake After that run sfc/ scannow and then chkdsk /r at an Administrator level command prompt. If that doesn't solve the problem, you might have a RAM mismatch, meaning your memory has not been paired or one of your RAM sticks is failing.

You would think, right? But no, reboots do not replicate the issue.

System is clean, temperatures are totally fine. System is not under load when it occurs, nor can I replicate when under load.
Prime95 is stable, haven't ran MemTest in a while to verify the RAM is still ok, but typically RAM is defective from the outset, or fine for decades under normal circumstances. RAM is a matched kit.

Surely the BSOD is suggesting a driver issue conflicting with the power plans?

May I ask how you found potential problems with the RAM? Because I'm not seeing it at the moment.

It most definitely is not overheating, the current temperature is 303 kelvin which is around 30C or 86F.

It looks like xusb22 is where the problem started which is an Xbox 360 controller driver.

Thanks for this! That would make a whole lot of sense.
I have an XBox One controller, where the wireless adapter doesn't work consistently.... So I've used it wired AND have since started using my Nvidia Shield controller in place of it.

Double-checking now, the XBOne controller shows up as such in Device Manager, but the Shield controller shows as an XBox 360.... so issue likely sits with the Shield controller.

It looks like I'm a little late. I'd listen to what axe says first, but here's the dump info that I got in case you want to look through it: https://pste.eu/p/fZof.html

File information:MEMORY.DMP (Jul 19 2019 - 09:43:12)
Bugcheck:DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9F)
Probably caused by:memory_corruption (Process: System)
Uptime:0 Day(s), 22 Hour(s), 12 Min(s), and 39 Sec(s)

Comment: The overclocking driver "RTCore64.sys" was found on your system. (MSI Afterburner)
