    Norton and McAfee antivirus programs are known for causing
    problems with Windows Mail - not immediately, but often weeks
    or months after they are installed.

  2. Before installing Norton AV you should have asked for advice here.
    I'm afraid you jumped from the frying pan into the fire as far as
    your antivirus goes. Windows Mail does not seem to like Norton
    (or McAfee) antivirus.

    Adding crap like Norton or McAfee to crap like Windows Mail,
    makes for one big pile of ca-ca.

    My computer, Windows Vista Ultimate, Dell XPS 420 keeps restarting and
    restarting and restarting...
    Computer Specs; Vista Ultimate, DELL XPS 420, 4GB RAM, 2 - 250GB HD
    (Mirrored), dual DELL 1908WFP monitors, and that's it...
    When it starts back up, it keeps popping up a screen that tells me that has
    caused a problem...
    it asks me to go to the Windows Update website but there are NO updates on
    it for this computer...
    It has all of its updates... except for the language updates…
    It keeps getting a BSOD Driver_Power_State_Failure... 0x00000009F...
    whatever that is...
    Could you please tell me what you think would cause that??? The computer
    will only stay on
    about 30 to 45 mins and then it crashes… This time it crashed when I was in
    display settings...

    Troubleshooting... apparently there are more than 117 unsigned drivers in
    the DELL default version of the
    NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT v7.15.11.6736, dated 10-19-07... but in the newer
    driver v7.15.11.6925, dated 12-11-07
    there are only 4...
    [c:\windows\nvtmpinst]
    nvcpl.chm Unknown None Not Signed
    N/A
    nvcpl.cpl Unknown 1.5.600.0 Not Signed
    N/A
    nvcplui.exe Unknown 1.5.600.0 Not Signed
    N/A
    nvexpbar.dll Unknown 1.5.600.0 Not Signed
    N/A

    I'm testing now... to see if the computer will stay on longer than 45
    mins... without crashing...
    I'll try to remember to let you know how it turns out...
    If you know anything more about this problem please let me know...

    Assuming the following error:
    STOP: 0x0000009F (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

    Most common reasons found:
    1. 1394 Device Connected when computer attempts to hibernate or sleep.
    Fix : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929762/
    (Direct download of updates x86 or x64)
    2. Windows not updated.

    Well... number one might be the one that is the most correct... It appears
    that MS and DELL have a problems working together... the NVIDIA card, GeForce
    8800 has a problem with Windows Vista Ultimate...

    apparently there are more than 117 unsigned drivers in the DELL default
    version of the
    NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT v7.15.11.6736, dated 10-19-07... but in the newer
    driver v7.15.11.6925, dated 12-11-07

    Try running a "good" memory tester, since one possible cause is bad RAM
    memory.

    Thanks Chuck... that's a good try... however, I've already two different
    memory testers with no negative results... all passes...
    Thanks again

    After calling DELL and having them take over my computer talk me through
    resetting it to it's DELL factory defaults never asking if I had backed up my
    system or if so how I had done it, seems like a million times (TWO WEEKS), a
    few times... I called MS and used thier loophole for helping with MS updates
    no matter what... it worked great... this girl, Anna helped me go through the
    log files on my computer with a fresh set of eyes... even though my computer
    continuously crashed, BSOD, restarted, and popped up a windows box telling me
    that I had a driver problem and I needed to go to MS updates and fix it...
    this was NOT entirely true... it was extremely misleading... I looked at my
    update histroy and it said that my only failed driver was for the dual
    1908WFP (Digital) monitors... It said "FAILED" right next to them... all the
    other updates were successful... after we looked at the system log files we
    discovered that the cdrom drive kept failing...
    we went into the device manager and removed thier drivers... did a scan, it
    found them and re-installed them... PROBLEM SOLVED...
    How woulda' thunk it... the pre-installed cdrom drivers were killing the
    computer... I'm amazed... once again I really hope that this helps someone
    out there...

  16. I get the same message "Blue screen" problem.. After shutting down the
    computer, he won't shut down. After several minutes he restarts the system
    again. Sometimes I am lucky and the computer shuts down. Other times he
    restarts again.

    What is the solution for this problem. I have a new system just for a week.
    And already there is a problem.!!!!!!

    BSOD are often associated with poor drivers.

    In your case, it will be difficult to figure out which component is at
    fault. I would recommend removing all non-essential devices (for example
    discrete network cards/sound cards/graphics cards/modems etc) from your
    system before booting into Safe Mode If you can't boot into safe mode, then
    reinstall on this cut-down configuration.

    If you can get in to windows like this, then add one device back on at a
    time, rebooting between each one.

    The meaning of a blue screen/stop error is dependent on the error message,
    there is a myriad of causes. Without details, it's impossible to tell you
    what the problem could be.
    Then it would be under warranty and the manufacturer should be contacted. A
    stop error can be a sign of damaged/faulty hardware, and this would not be
    resolvable by the end user. On a system under warranty, you should not even
    be messing with it, this is why warranties exist.

    I agree that the OP should exercise his warranty - if only for less hassle.

    However, he can tinker with his hardware and/or software configuration quite
    happily without jeopardising his warranty rights. A PC is not a closed box,
    and it designed to be both modular and user-configured.

    The OEM might grumble but the have little legal redress. However, to aid his
    OEM in fixing the issue, it's obviously simpler if he returns the unit under
    RMA without any tinkering.

    Well, I wasn't really referring to whether or not messing with it would
    jeopardize the warranty. I was stating that no one should even have to
    bother with doing the troubleshooting on a new system.
