DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

By sanjana8480 ·
Hi,
I have widows 2000 prof. with SP4, on Dell GX270 along with 512 RAM having one PCI- GPIB Board card installed to communicated one Device.
Before 5 days I made a ghost image of C: drive using Norton Ghost with USB support, since I have only C: drive in this PC so I opted this option to make Image.
Since Y?day when I restart the PC the following error comes on Blue Screen saying:-
DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
**STOP: OX0000009F (OX00000100, OX85DFFCB0, OX85E32030)
Begin Dump of Physical Memory
Dumping Physical Memory to Disk: ##
Then I run the ?sigverif? to check which all drivers are not signed form Microsoft.
I found 10-11 drivers, which are unsigned.
Then I went to Device Manager & seen all Hidden Driver by clicking Show All Hidden Drivers. I found with Yellow ? mark on that and under Other Devices I found that PCI-GPIB card with a big Yellow ? mark.
I tried a lot to reinstall and update this devise driver but still it is showing with Yellow ? mark but yes now in Hidden driver it is not now being shown with Yellow ? mark.
After doing all the efforts I still getting the error of DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE while I restart the PC (not when I shut down the PC) and It does not shut down properly I mean to say from Monitor it seems it shutdowns but the CPU fan and SMPS fan are still running backside of the PC.
Now can any one pls tell me how can I come to know which driver is causing the problem and how can I remove that driver to overcome the problem.
Thanks in advance????!

What has changed recently?

Was anythign added to the PC?
Were any patches applied?

Did you JUST install Ghost 5 days ago? If so I would start by removing that program. The only other time I've seen this was with some disk burning software that was installed to archive old image files. Once we removed the program all was well.

That's where I would start. Unfortunatley this error is more of a trial and error one. If you have devices in device manager with a Yellow ? I might try disabling that device to see if it helps. Knock them off 1 by 1 until you find the culprit.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Best of luck.
