    Seemingly Random/Frequent Driver Power State Failure BSOD


    Can't seem to shake this Driver Power State Failure BSOD. Happens almost daily.
    I am currently running ArcGIS which is a huge pig on resources but the BSOD is not exclusively occurring when I run it.
    Thanks in advance for the help/insight.

    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)
    A driver has failed to complete a power IRP within a specific time.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0000000000000003, A device object has been blocking an Irp for too long a time
    Arg2: ffffe0006bddc800, Physical Device Object of the stack
    Arg3: ffffd0006973f960, nt!TRIAGE_9F_POWER on Win7 and higher, otherwise the Functional Device Object of the stack
    Arg4: ffffe00071e6b2d0, The blocked IRP
    When looking to the blocked irp it blames youir nvdia gpu driver
    Code:
    Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2

    Your driver is from nvlddmkm Tue Dec 01 14:36:40 2015

    Normally i would advice to update to the latest driver but because you have Asus laptop the problem could be that you can only us the "customized" OEM Asus driver for your laptop and that you must rollback to the latest nvdia drivers from the supportpage of your laptop.

    https://www.asus.com/support/Downloa...uCiZSsANhK/41/

    For more info see google https://www.google.nl/?gws_rd=ssl#q=...B+nvdiadrivers

    I found a few appcrashes with Asus Smart gesture and with asus charger.
    Advice update your driver to the latest versions from the above supportpage.

    Rolled back to stock nVidia driver for my laptop, I had forgot that I updated to the nVidia hotfix for Asus G series. No BSODs for a day now and I've been running some resource heavy software.

    Thanks for the help!
