I think you do it from the NVidia Control Panel, by right-clicking on Desktop........?

No, not that I can see, I think it is via the BIOS but I am not overly experienced with the BIOS.

Hello, ProdigyGamer. Some boards have an option in BIOS to turn off switchable graphics, but it can be done in the Nvidia Control Panel and in device manager. See if this helps., only in reverse. You would want to choose The Nvidia card as the preferred Graphics adapter and disable the on board graphics in Device manager.
First set the integrated graphics as preferred .....
  1. Open Nvidia control panel.
  2. Click on "Manage 3D settings".
  3. Click on the button below "Preferred Graphics Processor"
  4. Change it to "Integrated graphics"from the drop down menu.
    This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 772x284. This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 772x284.
  5. Apply it.
Now restart the computer.


Now, disable nvidia graphics card in the device manager.
  1. Click on the start button.
  2. Type Device Manager in the search bar.
  3. Click on the resulting link. The Device Manager window will open.
  4. The third one should be "Display Adapter". Expand it by clicking on the "►" in front of it. Your nvidia card name will be shown.
  5. Right click on it. Choose "Disable" in the context menu.
  6. A dialog will appear with some scary words. Dont be afraid. Click on "Yes" .
  7. Restart the computer.
Hopefully the nvidia display is out of use now, and so there will not be any further chance of graphics switching.


Let us know how the computer is running after doing it.

Before you try that, are you running a Laptop or a Desktop? Your system specs say a desktop. The CPU listed in your System Specs is a Sandy Bridge- E CPU and as such does not have internal graphics.

Sorry for the late reply, I did not receive an alert for the new post and had to deal with a family emergency.

My system specs are correct and up to date, I am sorry if I gave the wrong information, I was basing it off uninstalling graphics drivers and still being able to see a much larger and more pixilated image when i have format my PC in the past, I assumed it must of had on board due to still being able to see the screen without any drivers.

(Also I do not have that option in my Nvidia panel)

I still go to a black screen when I start Skyrim and play for a few minutes, I can still hear the music and ambient sounds but both monitors (I only play on one) are black (says they are going into sleep mode) that I cannot recover from, ctrl, alt + del does nothing either, the PC just hangs indefinitely which requires a manual power down by holding down the power button.

Most of the time it does not even produce a dump file after booting back up, I need to let it hang for several minutes before manually powering down to get it to produce the dump file most of the time.

This has got me stumped.

OK, if your system specs are up to date, you have a Sandy Bridge - E CPU and as such you have no internal graphics, only your Graphics card. Windows will install a generic driver on a reinstall in order for you to be able to see, while you reinstall Windows. What we are going to try is a reinstall of the Graphics driver. Please follow this guide and follow it. It will give you a clean install and not install anything you do not use. NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

I would also suggest you use a program to monitor your graphics temps. If you do not have one, something like MSI Afterburner (Afterburner | MSI Gaming Series) will work for most any card. If you go into settings and Monitoring, you can set temps, fan speed and quite a few other things you may want to be on screen during gaming. Please monitor your temps while doing that.

Also, please check and make sure you are configured for Small Memory Dumps, Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

I always do clean installs of all new drivers this way (I learned from a previous issue that someone was able to help me with on these forums) but I followed your instructions anyway and uninstalled and reinstalled just to rule it out.

I have "Nvidia Inspector" for Temps (I don't overclock it though, not sure how) but my card never seems to struggle much in the way of heat, I keep regular checks on most of my system components (Graphics card, processor, fans, liquid cooling etc.).

I changed the Dump file from "Kernel Memory Dump" to "Small Memory Dump (256KB)"

Additional Information:

My PC is clear of dust and is well ventilated.
My Memory has been tested and is fine.
I have run the Dell system scan and found no issues.
I have stress tested my card and found no issues.

OK, after you have installed the new Graphics Driver, let's see how it does. If you get another BSOD please upload the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions here. We'll see what the new one says.

How did you test the memory?
In your BIOS, do you have readings for the +12V, +5V and +3.3V? If so would you tell me what they are?

I tested the memory by reseating them (32GB - 4x8GB) and the Dell extended Memory test.

I will try and have a look to see if I can find those readings for you.

Edit: I had a look but could not see any values like that, everything in the Voltage/Power menu was set to auto which I have never changed from factory settings.
