The BSOD 000000000F4 Error

During the BSOD event Viewer gets a Critcle error. -Kernal Power-  41 Event 

after many hours googles and pots of coffethe error seems to be SSD or hard drive related seems to happen when PC is Idel For long periodes of time.

Originally I build the PC with just one SSD then I got this error I replaced the ram and still same error I swaped SSD's and still same error so I Raided the 2 drives together and no error's for 3 months now the Error returns.

Now with that said I have Done the many SSD tweaks we know of such Ending paging files and so forth.

Please can anyone offer advise or thoughts?

after trying everything after 10 years of building PC's Something I could not fix. I broke down and took it to a local tech and NO BSOD's but as soon as I got it back BSODS continued.

What would you suggest I do from here?

Okay I have reinstalled Windows 7 a few times as for making the raid 0 and so on. So my first thoght is it's not windows. But could both SSD's have error's straight out the box?

Could it be the P67 Motherboard? I am understanding they had issues with SSD's?..... just a thought?

I swapped the SSD's drives and ram, this did not fix the issue.

Maybe a new version of windows?

never have I had this much trouble with a PC GoodlorD

BSODS are not my thing Please any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks


update firmware, might not solver your problem but its something that needs to be done

if that doesn't work, go here:

they specialize in dealing with bsods

I attempted To do the Firmware update and sadly the OCZ firmware updater tool requires you to format all ssd's to be recognized to up date so I will need to spend several hourse backing up my data formating and testing this to get the firmware to update.

So i will keep you posted as things develope thanks so much for your help Syndicates 

Okay I am fully up and running after the firmware update. As it turnes out, both drives were running off diferent Firmware but have now been updated to the ocz 2.25 SSD firmware. not only was there a minimal performance increase but i have been BSOD free thus far (Knock on Wood)

we will see how things progress in the coming days. again thank you all for the great help and advice.

no prob

Agility 3's are notorious for failing without newest drivers. You shouldnt have any problems now. Im almost 100% positive that will fix your problem. I used to use them all the time because there cost to performance, but they did fail until the most recent drivers.

Yes this problem is solved it would seem lol soooo directly after my last post I was off to bed feeling great about the PC I went to shut down the PC and

BSOD what ahh! (hanges head in shame)

NO not the same error

Stop code 0x9F

Driver Power State Failure

Minidump file I


I am currently trying to update all drivers and seeking out a solution I have already done the google search and found an unasigned driver.

anyone familiar with this issue?

so many BSOD's

I would Like to extend my graditude to Commisar,TallGeese and GigabusterEXE for Your help after all your help I have been error free I am so very grateful thank you so very much. I had searched for answers everywhere, but it is here at Tek Syndacate where I found my answers. Your personal experience helped me so very much.


Thank You!!!!

hey, no prob. but if you have future bsods, go to the forum i linked to. the staff there are specialists at this sort of stuff.

I did :) they did help :) great advice :)
