Hi gdr441 and welcome to ROG.
Have you made changes/Update to Bios or updated to latest GPU drivers recently.
If you have a system restore point in backup, Restore to a time previous to changes.
Bit more info needed to resolve this issue!!


This particular Blue Screen, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (also known as 0x0000009F), is (usually) encountered due to driver errors encountered when, say, you put your computer to sleep or take it out of sleep. Drivers are instructions given by your device to tell your computer how to interact with them — your keyboard’s driver is what registers the keys you tap as letters to appear on your screen. Drivers are for peripherals and nearly every part of your computer. The motherboard, however, has a BIOS, which is just as important to keep updated as your device drivers.


If on a laptop, find the name of your laptop and the appropriate BIOS update for it. If on a desktop, find your model or look at the packaging of your motherboard to determine where you can find the manufacturer’s website and upgrade your BIOS. If your BIOS is fully upgraded or updating it didn’t fix your problem, continue reading.

For driver updates, you have three choices: use the Device Manager, found in the Control Panel in all versions of Windows, and individually update your drivers from there. You can also search online manually for your driver updates or use our Driver Reviver software to save yourself the trouble.

If upgrading the BIOS and drivers still hasn’t resolved your problem, then there may very well be a problem with your operating system installation (especially if you’re using Windows 8) or the hardware itself.

As someone with this issue on a fairly new G750JM I can guarantee you the above does nothing to help. It is actually an issue with NVIDIA drivers.
Click here for clarification:

Apparently the new 340.43 beta driver fixed this BSOD for some. I am using this version right now and so far no blue screen! Consider this option if you do not prefer to revert back to the old drivers.

Hello guys, it seems Asus have provided a new stable driver for the 860M... Its a modified version of 337.88. All you need to do is visit the 750JM drivers support page and download it, OR
