    BSOD DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE while rebooting.


    This is the 3rd time now I've had this issue with my new laptop. It's been mainly while rebooting or during windows updates. I've installed 4GB of RAM today and then got the issue again, but the RAM i'm sure has nothing to do with it. It's also the proper ram for this laptop (DDR3L-1600MHz) I've uploaded all the information, this is my last place to check.. I've asked GeekSquad, online. They want $199 to tell me what the information means, so i told them off and closed the chat. I asked Comodo GeekBuddy, they can't tell me without paying for their plan, so i closed that too.

    If anyone can help me understand what the computer is telling me, please let me know.. Even ASUS can't tell me, their option was to factory reset the computer, because they can't read the memory dump or code.

    Code:
    *******************************************************************************
    *                                                                             *

    Hi Kingmaikel & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I have analyzed your dump file and a short analysis is provided below :-

    We observer that the PCI.sys and ACPI.sys are blamed in this one. These are generally caused by the Asus Drivers which I see presence over your system and they are outdated as well (Likely the BSOD cause), so could you please remove the below given objects and see if it solves your problem or not? :-

    1. AiCharger.sys (You would need to do a manual search for this one)
    2. All of the ASUS Bloatware you can find over you system.
    3. Driver Reference Table - ASMMAP64.sys

    Sorry for the short post, it is post 3am here ^_^. I think this should solve your problem. In case it does not, do not hesitate to post back.

    AiCharger.sys i think is the ASUS USB Charger Plus, I've not had a chance yet to remove all the bloatware from them yet.

    I know what to remove except two of them actually look useful, well. I know one is.

    ASUS GPU Tweak and the ASUS Power4Gear Hybrid (Some type of gaming power\energy saver combination for laptop).

    I'm in the process of removing everything from ASUS now, I don't use the Power4Gear so that'll go too. But the ASUS GPU Tweak, idk.

    I repaired the ATK Package file, removed ASUS junk and took out the USB Charger Plus. I contacted ASUS with the information you gave regarding the culprit, their suggestion was repairing ATK instead of removing, its an important feature in the laptop, LED Lights, FN Keys, etc.

    Thank you for the assistance ^~^

    That is why I did not mentioned the ATK Package file because it is important for the proper functioning. Thanks for posting back the solution ^_^. Glad to see that it was resolved
