Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown

I received an unexpected shutdown and subsequent 'This problem was caused by
Realtek RTL8168/8111 family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (rtlh86 .sys).
The advice was to go to Windows Update to install latest drivers, which I
did, and it took a while.
I continue to get exactly the same shutdown error up to five times a day.
Any other steps I can take to resolve this matter that you can suggest would
be much appreciated.

Re: Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown

You actually don't want to install drivers from Windows Update. Often they
are wrong or outdated. See below for general drivers information. If
updating the driver doesn't help, consider posting back and including
information about your computer per these links:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/555375 - How to Ask a Question

Never get drivers from Windows Update. Get them from:

1. The device mftr.'s website; OR
2. The motherboard mftr.'s website if hardware is onboard; OR
3. The OEM's website for your specific machine if you have an OEM computer
(HP, Dell, Sony, etc.).

Read the installation instructions on the website where you get the drivers.

To find out what hardware is in your computer:

1. Read any documentation you got when you bought the computer.
2. If the computer is OEM, go to the OEM's website for your specific model
machine and look at the specs (you'll be there to get the drivers anyway)
3. Download, install and run a free system inventory program like Belarc
Advisor or System Information for Windows.

If you have installed drivers from Windows Update, you can roll them back:

OK for a person who has no clue how to update my video card what do I do. I have had the same blue screen shutdown for months and just found this forum so any help would be appreciated.

Re: Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown

Hi,

Most times, the steps are to:

1) Go to the web site of the video card manufacturer, download the most
recent (non-beta) release appropriate for your video adapter. Often, it
comes as part of a supporting software package. Place this in a folder or on
your desktop where you can easily locate it later.

2) Many will recommend that you uninstall the current software prior to
installing the new set. If so, reboot after the uninstall (this is usually
automatic). Windows will load a standard VGA driver during the interim step.
The uninstall routine is done through the Control Panel/Programs and
Features.

3) Install the manufacturer's new set per their instructions. Most simply
have you run an .exe file that expand the download package and proceeds on
its own. It is sometimes recommended that you temporarily suspend active
scanning by your antivirus software to avoid conflicts.

Re: Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown

Please don't interject your own issue into someone else's. This is called
"hijacking" and helps neither the original poster or the hijacker. You
posted this question in another newsgroup and I already answered. If you
don't remember where else you posted, do a Google Groups Advanced Search
for your name.

If you have further questions about your issue and/or my answer, please post
in that original thread. I won't be monitoring this one.

Re: Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown

I have some additional data points about this DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE ...

It was brought to my attention that MS Vista update KB938194 is to improve
the stability of Vista and the 9f error (dated 8/7/2007)

Another Vista Update dated 3/27/2007 KB936171 is specific for one issue
causing DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE... Unfortunately, when I try to install
this update, I am told that it is not for my computer.

Anyone have an idea about why it would not apply to my laptop with a dual
core AMD processor?

Also I see that XP Pro has, I think, a software tool to help pin point what
is causing a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.

Does anyone know if such a software tool exists for Vista yet?

I had the same problem bt was able to install the (KB938194) by selecting the x86 version my computer seems fine after that update
