Hi All,
So I am having a super annoying problem with my desktop win 10 system (for quite a long time on and off - I'd say every 2 out of every 3 resets it happens within 3-10 min if not I am usually fine until the next reset - very strange).

The BSOD is DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.

Computer:
Win 10 Home 64 bit (19044.2075)
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz 3.30 GHz
Asus X99 Sabertooth MB
32GB ram
Nvidia 1080TI latest studio drivers (517.40), recent clean install

Here is the recent minidump info I am getting - it seems to me to have something to do with the missing ACPI driver - but what is this exactly and where do I get this? suggestions?

Thanks
Iddo

Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD - that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

  1. Open Windows File Explore
  2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
  3. Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
  4. Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
  5. Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
  6. Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
  7. Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .
it might be internet drivers

Sorry I am slow to reply, weather isn't being nice to me.
Yes, I meant Ethernet, lets see if dumps agreed. Shame debugger freezes up with more than 5 dumps

the last one to occur blames Avast

I believe they all caused by Avast
all of them include

try uninstalling it and see if you still BSOD.

Hi Colif,
Thanks for getting back to me.
M... that is a surprise. Didn't expect this - I had AVAST on this computer and many others for years without a problem - of course, something might have broken somehow over time. I don't like having my computer without protection though - do you suggest uninstalling testing and re-installing or some other antivirus software?

P.S. I updated the Ethernet card bios and drivers anyway - not sure if it did something.

The DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSODs occur because an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) is being held for too long. The address of the IRP is given in argument 4 and displaying this IRP gives...

This indicates that there was some sort of ACPI power state change issue with what looks like a serial attached device (though that doesn't mean it's physically attached to a serial port).

I can see two drivers that you have installed that are known to cause BSODs. These are AiChargerPlus.sys (the Asus Charger Driver) and IOMap64.sys (a component of the Asus Smart Doctor tool) - this one is known to cause BSOD when waking from sleep. I would recommend that you completely uninstall the Asus AiCharger Plus tool and the Asus Smart Doctor tool and see whether that stops these BSODs.

Many thanks! - I will do that now and report although I don't restart the computer every day so the results might take a little time (I try not to since it is so unstable after restarts that it can take several tries until I get a working computer again that doesn't BSOD...).

If it continues to BSOD after uninstalling the two Asus tools, please zip up all new minidumps and upload the zip file to here.
