The problem is acpi.sys(power management driver). Disconnect all add-on hardware (adapters,cards,external devices,etc.).  If no bsods, add devices back, one by one, until you find the problematic hardware. Acpi.sys is part of the operating system and cannot be updated.  You need to look at hardware and faulty third party drivers in an attempt to solve the problem.  

Update the bios and all  drivers for the motherboard. If you cannot find updated drivers post motherboard specs and I will direct you to the proper website.
