Windows 7: BSOD Possible GPU Switching related

7 x64 Ultimate
BSOD Possible GPU Switching related

bought an alienware m17x r3 last september, when i received it i fitted a SSD (re installed windows) and another 4gb ram.


7 x64 Ultimate (originally with premium)
SSD + Slave Hdd

Machine will bluescreen when left alone for periods of time, not over heating, not under strain.

I had a feeling it was GPu related when the machine was trying to switch between the nvidia gpu and the intel gpu but cant be sure, i have tried both the Dell recommended drivers and the Manufacturer drivers.

I have attached requested dump files + health checks.

The health check shows 3 bluetooth devices not installed correctly (the issue occurred before these and i think they are related to my wireless keyboard/mouse)

Any help much appreciated.
