Yes it is a laptop. Its Asus N53S. It BSOD as well it safe mode. Here's what happen, it started even before I formatted my laptop.
You see I always hate this kind of laptop, especially with Asus, it is very redundant if you ask me. This is a so called mid range gaming laptop, it comes with both Intel and Nvidia graphics. I know their intention is to help us save power consumption by switching it to Intel integrated graphic when we're not gaming, but it causes issue where sometimes it is not using the nvidia graphic. Beats me why Asus came out with this stupid idea, most other gaming laptop brand have only one graphic processor, Alienware or MSI for example.
So here's what happen. Before i formatted, there are many times the nvidia graphic card stopped working and BSOD. On next reboot, the hardware stopped working, it disappears completely in the device manager. Yes, it is the latest driver. I tried roll back and removed all traces of the drivers completely using DDU and re-install the latest driver. Again, after a few minutes it crashes again, all traces of nvidia gone. It's like it doesn't exist in my laptop. So how do I make it appear again? I did the same, removed all the drivers related to it in safe mode using DDU. Switched back and forth the SATA settings from IDE and AHCI until it appears again. This is the only way. Every BSOD shows the same result:
Caused by driver: ntoskrnl.exe
Because the laptop is too dumb to figure out which driver or hardware went wrong, so it always blame it on the kernel driver. Lmao!
So I'm out of idea, not sure what do to.
