Analyzing a dump file - Solved
« on: December 28, 2020, 12:02:39 PM »
My system crashes sometimes when Idle. I got the tools to extract the information that is created by the BSOD but I don't understand any of it. I only understood the part of the installguard which is a program that I have had for many years.

Please check and help me understand the below details.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)
A driver has failed to complete a power IRP within a specific time.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000003, A device object has been blocking an Irp for too long a time
Arg2: ffffe00138b4a880, Physical Device Object of the stack
Arg3: ffffd001ce146cb0, nt!TRIAGE_9F_POWER on Win7 and higher, otherwise the Functional Device Object of the stack
Arg4: ffffe0013ca2c560, The blocked IRP

I've always used Blue Screen View to get to the nitty gritty - https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

The download links are at the bottom of the article,

Seems like it is a better tool than the official one provided by Microsoft.

It lead me to a program called driver verifier which puts stress on drivers until the system crashes to single it out.

I think it is my virtual Audio driver.

I will update if I know more.

Has it been subject to a recent driver update or can you check to see if it will update.

Could your InstallGuard have conflicted with an Audio driver update ?

Sometimes an uninstall/reinstall of programs can resolve problems.

Could you try that with InstallGuard and the Audio driver to see if that resolves the BSODs.

A few weeks ago I was having BSOD with a virtual graphics driver that allows to share display wirelessly with other machines and that was resolved after I rolled back the graphics driver.

Recently it seems that the Audio virtual driver is causing the issue. This one is being using to control a 3rbarty software that is for controlling loud and low sounds to make them more leveled. They needed to be controlled via another driver.

So you can say there too many indigents in the pot plus the software is old. It was designed for Win7. So it most probably had compatibility issues.

I also rolled back the driver on my Audio card. Lets see if it comes back.

It usually happens late at night while scanning for viruses and I usually have music playing too.

If it does not get resolved then I will have to remove it.

On WIn 10 PC that uses Realtech card it installed normally but on Win8.1 (the one that crashes) that uses Conexant card it crashes during configuration every-time and has a safemode option to bypass that problem.

It does not happen every day. It is occasional. So let's see...

You can't really ignore BSODs.

Probably best to leave the scanning until you have finished.

Is InstallGuard the only antivirus program you have installed ?

There is nothing to do now but wait to see if there are any changes after the rollback.
InstallGuard is not an Antivirus. It is just an Administrator security program.

I have been using the same thing for over 4 years with the scanning and music and what not. That is not new at all. The only new thing is the new virtual drivers.

More information is required at this point.

What does the Tweaking.com repair program do?

There is a Repair Drive Associatior but I don't know what it does or if it would resolve your problem.

BSODs are usually caused by a driver malfunction but whatever you are scanning with - it doesn't seem to like virtual drivers.

Is there a way to use a 3rd party event viewer so that it can do better monitoring of the problem to try and pin point it?

I have 3 dump files and does not show much when I check on the internet.

While I've never tried them, this article has some alternatives to the built in Event Viewer - https://windowsreport.com/best-windows-10-event-log-viewers/

The Event Log Explorer looks interesting.

Have you considered upgrading your Win 8.1 to Win 10 ?

I believe you can still upgrade for free by clicking on the Update now button at -  https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

You can also create Win 10 install media at the same site after reading the instructions.

Here are the current updates. In the past three days it only crashed on Monday at 6 AM and there was no scan at the time going on.

I will use the event viewer that you provided and will keep it up till next Thursday. If nothing happens by then, I will close the thread.

I know that it could be upgraded the same why I did the other one but I am not interested in Upgrading it.

I have no interest in avoiding problems.

I like to over analyze everything.

Well it strikes me that if the virtual drivers are crashing in Win 8.1 but in Win 10 then the obvious solution would be to upgrade or find other drivers.

Why else have you posted on the forum if it wasn't to find a solution to your BSOD problems.

Close the thread.

I am fed up with this.

I think that you are smart and yet very very dumb.

Delete my profile too.

The next time you ask for help, we recommend you listen. All Boggin did was try and help you, but you want an answer you're happy with. It doesn't work that way. Otherwise, if you don't need help, don't ask. Windows 8.1 is right there with Vista. It's garbage, should be upgraded to Windows 10. There isn't a gamer left that would use Windows 8.

I'll be glad to delete your account so Boggin can continue to help people who WANT help.

Ok, Please keep the easy suggestion to yourself. Last time it just annoyed me.

Well I do what I can and know it is appreciated by others.

As for the OP - if he can't see that the easiest solution to this would be to upgrade to Win 10, then he's the Dummy.
