I would be happy if you write in English, Madhu. SMS language is OK only when there is character limitation, or for IM.

Wait and observe as long as you want; but dont do anything abrupt that is out of my suggestions without asking here. Thay may cause it worse rather than any good.

If you get any further BSOD, report it accordingly.

It is the same BSOD again. It should not occur after setting the integrated graphics as primary. But ......

I will request my guru essenbe to guide you to set the integrated graphics as primary in a better possible way.

Please wait for him, as he is not online right now.

Madhumitha, Please right click an empty spot on the desktop and select Nivdia control Panel, once you get there select 3D settings, at the top there should be a global setting. In the global setting select the on board graphics as the primary graphics adapter. If you continue to have problems, it should be when using a particular application. You can go back to the control panel, select that application and set the primary graphics adapter to on board graphics. I hope this helps. Your computer should use the primary graphics adapter for everything, which is what you want if you value battery life. The only time it should try to use the dedicated Nvidia card would be in graphics intensive applications such as games or maybe watching videos. Select those programs and make the primary adapter the on board and not the Nvidia. That will stop it from switching between the 2 adapters which is what is causing your problems.

Madhumitha, I have mine set up to use the Nvidia card always instead of integrated graphics. Please set yours to say integrated graphics where mine says Nvidia.

essenbe . do check both the image is it corrrect??? i did this last time too after that too i had BSOD (wic just shut down n off) ... i re did by selecting it and clicked applied now...

you mentioned "If you continue to have problems, it should be when using a particular application".how to find out what application causing the problem. The online time when i use browser the system freezes and then restart automatically. so should i set those application as integrated grated graphics??

To watch videos(online/offiline) i should change to nvidia again ?? or integrated graphic is enough??

The integrated graphics that you have is more than enough for anything other than some very latest games.

Steve, I think I suggested the same in post #41.

I wonder how any why the dedicated card is still playing a role in a BSOD, other than the user enabled it back for some reason.

Any idea about it?

It shouldn't. I know after I set mine up, every once in a while, I noticed it using the wron graphics adapter. I kad to go to programs and select that program and specify the correct primary graphics adapter. but those settings should take care of 95% of the programs.
