    Asus S56C BSOD: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE


    My wife has an Asus S56C which is about 6 months old. For the last 4-5 days, it has been blue screening with the error DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I think it is triggered by coming out of a sleep state and then opening Google Chrome. I have tried to isolate the issue to a certain driver but am having difficulty...she hasn't installed any new drivers recently. Windows did do an update on the 10th, but she says it has been happening since before that.

    Thanks for the help, I've attached my logs.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    All of the memory dumps point at your Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) driver - iaStorA.sys

    The MSINFO32 report states that this is a K56CA system - not an S56C system
    Asus has both systems, could you please verifier which one we're dealing with here?

    These instructions are for the S56CA:
    - Go here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download S56CA
    - Select your OS from the dropdown box
    - Scroll down to the "Other" category and expand it by clicking on the + sign next to it.
    - Select the first items (Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver) and download/install it.
    - Monitor for further BSOD's

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :
