    I get from time to time DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE in hal.dll
    As far as I can tell the cause is inconclusive.
    Can you please help me figure it out?

    This is not intended to help your problem in any way at all whatsoever, but I see there are crash dumps from early last year. You should download and run Ccleaner. It will clear your system of all old junk files and the registry too. It can be thought of as just some tlc - nothing more, nothing less.

    Now on to BSOD issues.

    Uninstall Coretemp:

    ALSysIO64 ALSysIO64.sys Sat Jul 09 20:27:45 2011 (4E18F201)

    Update PCIe 10/100/1000 LAN driver from Realtek's website:

    Rt630x64 Rt630x64.sys Wed Oct 19 08:12:55 2011 (4E9EBEC7)

    Update HD Audio codec driver from Realtek's website:

    RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Fri Mar 29 09:40:06 2013 (515599B6)

    That should do it, especially the first and second items. If issues persist, uninstall Avast then use removal tool. Set Windows Defender and Windows Firewall to Automatic and start them too, using services.msc.
