Your computer has switchable graphics, it switches between the Intel HD graphics and Nvidia graphics. When and how the graphics will be switched is determined by a program integrated in your computer's BIOS, called Nvidia Optimus Technology. And this switching is the root of the issue.

To stop the switching and to use either of the graphics as a permanent one, you need to disable Nvidia optimus technology. How to do it ... you will get it in this post: BSOD after startup, error 0x0000009f

Read carefully, proceed slowly, step by step. Hope you will be able to arrive at your desired goal.

Let us know how it goes. Best of luck.
Thank you, I will do it as soon as I get home and post the result here. Do you have any idea why this issue happened ? Six months earlier this Optimus technology worked fine, and sometimes it works fine. When windows installs the nvidia driver 327.02 via windows updates, the gpu works fine for a few hours.
But anyway, I will disable Optimus and post here the results.
Thank you.

Because Optimus technology failed to do its job.

There may/might be another reason, that the graphics card itself is failing. But in that case it will throw a stop 0x116/0x117/0x119 BSOD; not a 0x9F BSOD.

But as I said before, when I am not in game, the 9f show up. When I am able to open and Play a game for a few minutes, 116x appears.
On the first page of this thread I posted my cm log of the old windows, which has a lot of BSODs 116x and 9f.
I didn't knew my windows was counterfeit so I did install the original Home Premium and lost all that log.

And I must say, the Intel HD at least can run a few games on low like Dota 2, and it goes stable, I think the problem is with the NVIDIA gpu.

Would flashing my bios solve the problem? I did not try it. My BIOS version is different from the MSI website.

A BIOS update may allow you to go to the BIOS configurations those are still hidden, and so you can disable Optimus.

Rest of those all you said in the other two posts, are the parts of the issue.

Only when the nvidia card is active, only then you can rule out any possible failure from its part.

My BIOS is updated, but i cannot disable optimus via BIOS.
And i red that you can't disable Optimus at all. First because the LCD monitor is connected to the Intel HD Graphics, and the best you can do is force windows to use the NVIDIA on full time.

I will try to install my nVidia GPU again after the bios update.

And every time the NVIDIA GPU is loaded and detected, windows don't startup.
I made this video so you can see for yourself.
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0By9o...p=docslist_api

And when I start in safe mode, windows always starts normaly, and the GPU is detected.

Then I am expressing my apologies, I have no more idea there for you.

Arc, you don't have to apologize, I thank you very much for you help.
I'm just sad because I think this notebook will be useless, after one year saving money for it.
