    Rog g501 driver_power_state_failure

    Hi Guys,

    Please help me to fix this issue on my brand new laptop ASUS ROG G501 just bought it yesterday.
    Whenever i shutdown my laptop and then the next instance i turn it on again,
    I was able to go back on the desktop screen, the problem is when i click a program to start, for example I always
    click first the Steam app but it won't open, after several seconds then the Blue screen error pops
    up and indicates that it needs to restart as the computer encountered an error "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE".
    After restarting my laptop resume on normal operation until
    I shut it down again then the cycle repeats (desktop screen - blue screen error - restart - normal operation).

    Thanks in advance.

    OS: Windows 8.1 64 bit
    Nvidia GTX960M 4GB

    I had the same problem with my g501. After searching a lot on the internet, I found a solution that worked (well for me at least).

    I uninstalled MacAfee (which is known for its BSODs) and more importantly the ROG GameFirst 3 program.

    Not a single BSOD since then
