    Please try disabling the "Rapid Start Technology". Please follow the below steps.

    1. Uninstall currently installed "storage drivers".

    First uninstall Intel(R) Rapid Start Technology (Version: and then Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology (Version:

    2. Reboot the system and install latest Intel chipset driver. This will install a non RAID version of the driver.

    3. Set power plan to balanced.

    If the issue remains, we can try default Windows storage driver Msahci.sys.

    Unfortunately the problem is still ongoing. ASUS support have advised me to just perform a factory reset. I appreciate all of your help but I think I'm going to throw in the towel.

    Your issue seems to be more complicated than i can solve. A factory reset will solve the issue for sure but if you prefer not to do, i will request help from more experienced debuggers to assist you.
