    [BSoD] Windows 8.1 - On Power Down (Restart or Shutdown)

    **EDIT: Included SF Debug zip**

    System Specs:
    CPU: i7-920 [Cooled via Corsair H-series liquid cooling]
    RAM: 12GB Corsair Dominator [Fully tested; 100% pass]
    GPU: Geforce GTX 670 4GB [x2; SLI]
    OS: Windows 8.1 w/ lastest drivers from Windows Update
    Main Drive: Intel 510 120GB SSD

    This actually started with Windows 8 at some point. I performed a fresh install of Win8 on a Win7 machine (part of that Win8 Pro for $20).

    I had hoped that 8.1 might fix the issue if there was a 'core' driver that had been corrupted...sadly it did not.
    Below is the Kernel Memory Dump, this is the same result for every BSoD I get. And the BSoD isn't on every power down...sometimes the machine will sit at 'Shutting Down' for a few seconds (less than 10; <3 SSD) or last over half a minute before finally powering down. The other's upwards to 1 minute and the "unhappy face".

    Then follow this post to fix the DVD drive: DVD ROM not reading any disc

    If still necessary, see about removing this hardware and driver, to test.

    Double checking:

    For Intel we're talking about the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) RAID Driver


    I don't have an issue with the DVD drive not reading disc.

    I'm hesitant about deleting drivers that appear to have been shipped with the Windows 8 installation. (I've never installed Roxio or Rovi)

    And I gotta use JMicron's driver. Hope it works with Windows 8...they still don't say their driver supports Window 7

    Hmm, I see...I think.

    Deleting that driver breaks the DVD.

    And I'm a fool for not saying my Mobo.

    MOBO: EVGA X58 Classified

    so...Intel's latest drivers won't work for me.

    ...found, Intel's latest drivers that still support the X58

    I haven't had any BSoD, but then I've only initiated a power down sequence twice.

    This last one still took a fairly long time to power down, roughly 35 seconds....on a SSD.

    I'm not sure if the BSoD error code, or lack of, was stated in the Windows Debugger. But it's a Driver Power State Failure; with the PCI.sys being the likely culprit.

    Some additional info:

    I highly doubt the RAMdisk is causing this as I've had this issue for well over 8 months. And the RAMdisk was added last week (as of this post).
