    "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" blue screen on new laptop

    Hey guys I purchased a new SAGER NP7358 and it came in yesterday. However I have been getting numerous "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" blue screen of deaths at seemingly random times.
    When I got the laptop I figured I would go direct to SAGER's website and download the newest Windows 8.1 drivers instead from the CD they provided. So I did all that and installed my programs like Chrome, Steam, Skype and Spotify. Shortly after the blue screens started to come up. I figured maybe restarting my PC or cleaning my registry would fix the problem. But it kept happening since last night to today at work.
    I emailed the reseller and they told me to wipe my PC and install a clean Windows 8.1 copy while installing drivers from the CD and not SAGER's website. So started doing that and got all the drivers installed straight from the CD. And after 20 minutes of finishing installing driver I received the same blue screen... "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE".

    Here's my BlueScreenView screenshot

    Here is the WhoCrashed summary

    On Thu 7/17/2014 2:03:25 AM GMT your computer crashed
    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\071614-7718-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x153FA0)
    Bugcheck code: 0x9F (0x3, 0xFFFFE001B2DF3060, 0xFFFFD000DE506930, 0xFFFFE001BA719600)
    file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: NT Kernel & System
    Bug check description: This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

    Here are the minidump and memory.dmp files I uploaded to Google Drive if you need them

    There is only one dump I have right now for you guys because this it's the first crash off this fresh reformat. I didn't get a chance to save the previous crash dumps before I reformatted.

    We could clearly see from the summary that the Nvidia Driver is to be blamed, but on checking your dump file I found that you had the latest version. Please go to this Support page, search for your model and download BOTH the INTEL Integrated Graphics & NVIDIA Driver for your laptop for Windows 8.1 (I checked, and there is an update available).

    custom gaming laptops - Welcome to Sager Notebooks

    You should not install the drivers directly from the Manufacturer of the Chips in case of Video Drivers as laptops use the Switchable Graphics and hence the drivers provided by the OEM are modified to work like this. Please let me know how it goes and I would be happy to help in case you face any further problem.

    Also, make sure you remove any previous versions of the Display Drivers.
