BSOD Atapi.sys DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)

#1
This machine had Win XP 32-bit and was running smoothly (no crashes). I ran the compatibility test and it passed and I did a fresh install of Win 7 x64 and now it crashes. Attached are all the dumps and data. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've run driver verifier and the latest dump is a result of it crashing while in the Driver Verification mode.

By the way, I tried running RAMMon but both 32-bit and 64-bit version files gave me an error when I tried to run them.

The above dump file and Bugcheck is the most prolific out of those sent. Only one other (same Bugcheck) mentioned your gpu driver. The Bugcheck tells us that you have a device thats sitting in a IRP for too long and this could be down to system corruption, faulty device or driver.

avgldx64.sys Thu Nov 08 02:24:03 2012: AVG Anti Virus known on occasion to cause the odd issue. Please remove for this period of bugtesting and install MSE as it's far more stable. (you can always re-install AVG later)

viahduaa.sys Mon Mar 28 12:27:35 2011: Via Audio driver. Later 2012 version here:
http://download.viatech.com/DriverDownloadSubmitAjaxSvl

I don't think your system is recognising your GPU correctly because under Dxdiag it has this for your card:

---------------
Display Devices
---------------
Card name: RDPDD Chained DD
Try running the system file checker. Find command prompt, right click on it and run as admin. Type:
sfc /scannow
Press enter and await results.
If it turns up with corruption it couldn't cure then again in a admin command prompt type this:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Press enter and await results.

Thank you for your response.

I was getting crashes before I installed AVG because I had seen that, so I don't think that's the issue. It was also crashing before I installed the graphics card.

The link to the Via Audio Driver doesn't work.

The SFC test found no violations. I'll reinstall the 7600GS driver.

The results from the Checkdisc scan are attached. Microsoft Essentials didn't find anything. I'm downloading the Audio Driver. I'll let you know what I find. 7600GS driver (gfx) has been re-installed.

Not to tale Kemical's thread away from him but your name seemed familar.
Just looked it up, I saw you here before:

http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/332190-atapi-sys-netio-sys-bsod.html

Ah yes, Seven Forums...
I had a bad experience over there, Thedoctor44, I got banned because of how I debugged.
That's a different story if you're ever interested.
Arc is giving you a hard time I see, quite the attitude.

I'll see if I can be of use.

Could we possibly get a Kernel memory dump?
It'd be more useful.

  1. Go the Start
  2. Right click My Computer
  3. Select Properties
  4. Click Advanced system settings
  5. Click on the Advanced tab
  6. Select Settings under Startup and Recovery
  7. Then under Write debugging information select Kernel memory dump.

Once a dump is created go to:

Code:
C:/Windows/memory.dmp
Copy the file to the desktop, zip it up and upload it to a file sharing site like Onedrive. After the upload is done post the download link in your next reply.

I installed the latest audio driver yesterday and when I came in this morning the machine was locked up again (black screen, no response when trying to connect via remote desktop).

Here is a link to the memory.dmp:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/8lbm4g2jhghkp9d/MEMORY.zip

Yeah - I hadn't seen a response over there and then when I posted a new dump (somewhat incorrectly) finally when they did respond it wasn't very helpful.

Hi,
H0yD1ver could you run chkdsk again but this time use the GUI method and make sure both boxes are ticked. If you notice your last chkdsk was run without the F parameter which fixes broken sectors and the like.
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/guide-to-using-check-disk-in-windows-vista/

Atapi.sys can also be a target for malware. Try downloading and running Malwarebytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/

Could you also post a new dxdiag now you installed the drivers again. Thanks. ( I have feeling it might be connected with the bsod but we'll see)

Please post any new dump files

I've been doing a bit of poking around at first it sounded like a disk issue but digging futher into the devices your nvidia driver might be causing problems.

We can see the IRP pending stems from a PCI device which is for your Nvidia card.

Your driver is very outdated, I suggest you update your driver.

The driver is correct for his card Jared. If you also notice i'm also asking about his gpu.

Could you also post a new dxdiag now you installed the drivers again. Thanks. ( I have feeling it might be connected with the bsod but we'll see)
Driver for his card is here:

I forgot about that...
I didn't check which GPU model you had, the Geforce 7 series are old and don't supply new drivers, given you appear to have the latest driver I can't see it being that.

We'll have to keep digging, it'll only be a matter of time.

Also, I've reinstalled "Windows 7" probably 3-4 times and it has never stopped the periodic freezes, BSOD's, etc.

1. Ran chkdsk: 465 large file records processed, 0 bad file records processed, 34 EA records processed, 76 reparse records processed.
2. Ran Malwarebytes and it didn't find anything.
3. Attached is the new dxdiag.

Thanks for that. Your GPU is now appearing correctly in the dxdiag so re-installing the driver must have helped. How is the machine running currently? You haven't posted any dump files although if you do have any always post them as it gives us more to go on.
 


#19
It's still freezing regularly, and when it does that it's not giving me dumps to analyze. I left it on over the weekend, and when I came back I couldn't remote in or get anything to show up when I accessed the workstation's keyboard/mouse.

Hmm... Well you won't get any dump files created if the machine is freezing and not actually blue screening. This link not only has basic advice on what to check with a system that's freezing but also a link to several hotfixes for windows 7:
