Hi

 

Hybrid graphics seems to be causing issue for you. Please follow instructions from the below link (step 1 to 8) and set "Nvidia GPU" as the preferred graphic processor for all games.

 
 
On step 7, apply the setting for all games instead of the example program in the guide.

Hi

 

Are you sure you followed step 1 to 8 exactly ?. Have you set "High Performance Nvidia Processor" as the preferred GPU for all  the game executable ? (as per step 7).  

 

Is this BSOD only happens with a specific game ?.

Hi

 

Please do a clean install of the video driver. 

 

1. Uninstall Currently installed Nvidia driver and components completely from the system.

 

2. Use Intel Driver Update tool and install any update it offers.

 

    http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect

 

3. Use Nvidia Driver Update and download the latest WHQL driver it offers.

 

   http://www.nvidia.in/Download/Scan.aspx

 

While installing, choose custom and deselect everything except Nvidia Display driver and Physx. Also put a tick mark on "Perform a clean install".

4. Set Nvidia as the preferred GPU.

5. Set Nvidia power management to "Maximum Performance".

 

   http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3130/~/setting-%22power-management-mode%22-from-adaptive-to-maximum-performance

 

 

Let us hope this will solve the issue.

Thank you! It solves my problem. But will that reduce my laptop's lifespan?

No, it won't reduce the lifespan but the total battery backup time will be a little bit reduced. In fact, i don't expect a laptop to long last when compared to a desktop. Heat is the number one thing which kills a laptop. I highly recommend buying a high quality cooling pad especially designed for the laptops.
