My laptop just started having the most strange and apparently unsolvable issue. I'll start by posting my computer info: ASUS K55VM 6GB RAM Inter-Core i7 - 3610QM at 2.30 GHz Two graphic cards: Intel HD Graphics Family Nvidia GT 630M 380GB disc Here's my description of the problem: A month or two ago, at a party, someone spilled some drink over my laptop. When I finnally managed to boot him, my keyboard was fried, so I opened the laptop (warranty was over) and removed the old keyboard. I also cleaned the drink residues and let it dry for a few days. Using an external keyboard, the computer worked just fine. After two weeks, approximatly, the real issue started, so I'm not sure it is related. The fan starts working at maximum speed (really annoying) and after some time (5-30 minutes, it depends) a blue screen appears, with the error: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. I'll try to update with a picture of the BSOD if it happens again. The fan can start working at full speed at different times. sometimes, it lasts ok for like an hour or so, other times it starts as soon as I enter the desktop. Most of the times, tough, it starts befor all of that, and after the "Windows is loading" part of the boot. after it just stays black. I tried waiting a few hours but nothing happened, and the fan didn't stop. Other issues are: When the fan is at max speed, the only way to shut down the PC is holding the power buttons. Going Start>Shutdown does not turns the laptop off. It just stays in the blue-background window that says "Windows is shutting down" but it lasts there for hours (the longer I've waited). Trying to solve the issue I formated the hardrive, but it didn't solved the issue (Altough it worked fine for 1-2 days). I then tried changing the external keyboard and formatting the harddrive at once and it lasted for 2 weeks (altough I didn't turned the laptop off during that 2 weeks). I also tried some minor tips from other forums, like disabling automatic updates in services.msc, uninstalling Adobe Reader, etc, but all didn't help. Yesterday, I went to a friend house and used the PC over a sort of table towel, and then the blue screen reapeared. Today I did the boot recovery or whatever it is called and I was able to stop the issue (until now). I tried doing this recovery before, but it never worked. I don't know why it did this time. When I entered the desktop, a message saying "Your system recovered from a problem" appeared, and it stated the following: Assinatura do problema: Nome do Evento de Problema:BlueScreen Versão do SO:6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 ID de Região:2070 Informações adicionais sobre o problema: BCCode:9f BCP1:0000000000000003 BCP2:FFFFFA80061D3A10 BCP3:FFFFF8000509E3D8 BCP4:FFFFFA8005586AA0 OS Version:6_1_7601 Service Pack:1_0 Product:768_1 Ficheiros que ajudam a descrever o problema: C:\Windows\Minidump\010914-22698-01.dmp C:\Users\Zé Manel\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-43212-0.sysdata.xml It's in portuguese, but it says the location fo the dump files. I tried uploading the dump file, but it says it is too large.010914-22698-01.dmp - Speedy Share - upload your files here Try this download site instead (First that appeared on google :\ I also went to Event Viewer and got the code for the STOP: 0x0000009f (0x0000000000000003, 0xfffffa80061d1a10, 0xfffff8000400d748, 0xfffffa800b448a30) Also, my computer has an history of overheating, altough it stoped a few months ago when I found that tunning down the brightness of the screen just a little bit would prevent my computer from crashing and shutting down due to heat. When the BSOD appears, my laptop isn't that hot, I even used CPU-Burn-in and Core-Temp program and it showed no sign of overheating anymore. So I do not know if this is related to hardware, software, overheating ... I tried everything, and nothing works. The problem is so random, it just makes me lose my mind. If someone can help, please, I appreciate it. ----------------------- EDIT: The problem just started again. I played League of Legends and worked/studied all afternoon without problems. When I returned to the computer, after dinner, and started League of Legends, the problem immediantly reappeared. Maybe it is related. Thank you.
