  1. I had posted a message to the Device Drivers list as:

    I'm working on debugging a BSOD problem on a user's computer. This is a Dell Latitude D600, with Windows 2000 Professional, SP 4 & recent Windows Updates installed. The machine in questions is equipped with:
    Motherboard - Dell Latitude D600 Motherboard
    CPU - Intel Pentium M, 1600 MHz cpu
    Audio - Intel 82801DBM ICH4-M - AC'97 Audio Controller [A-1]
    Video - MOBILITY RADEON 9000 (32 MB)
    RAM - 2 GB
    Disk - Win2000 Promise Ultra100 (tm) IDE Controller with FUJITSU MHT2080AT PL (80 GB, 4200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/100) drive
    Optical Drive - _NEC DVD+RW ND-6100A (DVD+R9:2.4x, DVD+RW:8x/4x, DVD-ROM:8x, CD:24x/16x/24x DVD+RW)

    Additional details of the situation are in my prior posting - but essentially, at present, on power transitions (shutdowns, attempts to enter stand-by), it BSOD's with a BugCheck of 9F (DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE). Here is a sample of a stack trace from a representative minidump:

    Nothing seems to point to any specific driver (at least that I can tell).

    Basically, I started having problems when DivX software was installed on-top of the Roxio Easy CD Creator v 5.3.4 SP 8 Basic pre-installed by Dell. Now - both list as being removed, but the system still BSOD's.

    Any help or hints would be appreciated.

    Sorry--that was my first post.

    I was under the impression that the board was making me post to a newbie board first.

    In any case, a question to Bill: is the D600 in a port replicator? Just curious.

    I've been getting the same problem, but simply at random (it seems).

    It can happen doing pretty much anything, from surfing, using a text editor, playing a graphics-heavy game, compiling a huge source. No connection at all to what i'm doing, it seems.

    It occurs about twice a week.

    Does anyone have any hint on what I can do to fix this irritating problem?

    saxasm, this thread is over two years old. The best recourse is to start your own and include your system specs, along with what you wrote here.

    Many people will think you are simply answering the OP and not realize you are asking for help.

    When it Blue Screens does it list a driver along with the error code? Please answer this question in your new post.
