    Frequent DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSOD


    I've been getting this BSOD with provided searching keywords: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 3 times in an hour. Having done a few searches, I've been trying to track down the possible cause which is believed to be from Intel Rapid Storage Driver, however, I didn't find this module installed in my computer. Hope you can help me track down the issue and given solution. Here is my attached SF file.

    It seems that the NVIDIA driver is causing the blockage of IRP packets. Kindly remove the current installed version of NVIDIA Driver using this **TOOL**. Once it removes the driver, kindly restart your laptop. After, visit the below link -
    Notebooks & Ultrabooks - G551JM - ASUS

    Download the latest NVIDIA driver under the VGA dropdown and then install it.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^

    Thank you for your kind and fast reply.
    I followed your instructions on rolling the NVidia driver back to 333.17. The machine has been running well since then.
