Windows 10, Home Clean Install

I have checked several of your many BSODs and they are all consistent, the cause is either your card or a driver. Lets check the driver, which is the usual cause.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Hi kslim!
I bought an Acer laptop 2 weeks ago (V3-571G) and I have exactly the same problem. BSODs with the title DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE caused by nvlddmkm.sys when the laptop is idle or a short time after it was idle. I tried 306.02, 304.79, 295.55 and 296.32, but nothing worked. If you managed to resolve your problem, could you please tell me how?

Hi jeyml!
Sorry for being late answering you, but i haven't been active on this forum for a while.
Yes, i managed to resolve the BSODs. For me, the solution was Windows 8. Since i installed it, the laptop is working fine, except some minor famous bugs caused by this new Microsoft OS.
Also, if your actual Windows isn't exactly genuine, you could try to change it with one from another "source".

Windows 7 x64 SP1

Thanks for the reply,but i managed to figured out how to make it work with Windows 7 X64.After much debugging i have figured out that the problem was with the Kernel of the Windows.This drivers were made by Acer for the newest Kernel that Windows has to offer.In order to not have problems with the drivers you must Update Windows,but not all updates.Search in the update list 2 updated that refer to "Kernel for windows...",there are 2 of them,install them both and you won't have a problem.Hope it helps because i hate Windows 8.
