I am getting a blue screen when I go to start and shut down. The blue screen tells me a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Driver_Power_State_failure. At the bottom of the screen I get this set of numbers.
*** stop:0X0000009F(0X00000500,0X00000002,0X8324AC88,0X833A8030)
My computer is an IBM R30 laptop, Intel Pentium 111 Processor 996 MHZ,632MB RAM, File system NTFS,windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 2, Hope I have provided enough information to you experts to find an answer for this problem.

at a site that troubleshoots Stop messages;

(Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
A driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. Typically occurs during events that involve power state transitions, such as shutting down, or moving into or out of standby or hibernate mode."

The full site is here;

I hope this helps.

CNET doesn't give out email addresses of senders when a person sends an email to a forum member, so I couldn't reply to you.

I'm not sure what you meant in your email when you said; ''My laptop shuts down when I get to about 45% OX9F downloaded''.

Did you try the link I gave and did you find the other links with more information under the Stop error code 09F?

If you were unable to, I include the links below for you;

I added the last one in case there were any similarities.

Good luck, I hope one of these helps.

You might want to check your computer to see if it's been infected with a spyware or a virus. Have you defragged your drive lately? Regular disk cleanup and defrag will help optimize windows.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
