BSOD DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (gaming laptop, win8.1 64bits)

Hi. I got this new gaming laptop about a week ago and every day, multiple times a day, i get a BSOD with the message: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
What i did:
Reinstalled Windows 8.1 from zero and installed all drivers from the manufacturer installation dvd.
Updated all intel and nvidia drivers.
Still no fix =(

I need some help identifying wich hardware/driver is causing me this problem or even knowing if it has solution . Thanks in advance. The dump from dm log collector is attached.
