    BSOD with driver_power_state_failure when logging in


    I would like to ask for your help. I have a new Acer V5-573G notebook, I installed Windows 8.1 on it, and sometimes I get into BSOD with the error driver_power_state_failure when I want to log in after switching on or waking up the computer. Not all the time though, it happens during about every 5th log in. I suppose it's caused by one of the drivers installed but I can't figure out by which one of them. I reinstalled Windows once, but it didn't solve the problem. Once I have already logged in, the computer works fine, BSOD haven't happened then yet.
    I attached my dump files.
    Please help me, if you can.

    Thank you in advance,

    The issue you are experiencing seems to be caused by Nvidia Graphics driver.

    Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys

    Please try the below steps.

    1. Check for an updated version of graphics driver by using the auto detect feature - NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products

    2. Set Nvidia power management to Maximum Performance.
