Osc89 asked on
I have been getting this blue screen error ever since installing Windows 8.1. It seems to only crash after waking from sleep, then it restarts. Here is the contents of the Minidump folder:

I would greatly appreciate any help.

The attached DMP file is of the DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f) bugcheck.

This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.

If we run an !irp on the 4th parameter of the bugcheck (blocked IRP address), we get the following:

The crashes are being caused by MotioninJoy simulate Xbox 360 controller (virtual Xinput device). I have dealt with this many many times in the past in BSOD situations. I recommend removal of MotionJoy's software ASAP and using the official Microsoft controller driver.
