This might be a developers internal technical reference, or it might make the option available... not sure.

Starting with the Release 302 drivers, application developers can direct the Optimus driver at runtime to use the High Performance Graphics to render any application–even those applications for which there is no existing application profile.
I'll bow out and leave this to the BSDO team.

Well, this is embarrassing , I accidentally posted the initial analysis in the wrong thread (tab),
there's a first time for everything apparently .

I'm sorry about the confusion!
Single tab from now on.

The analysis (it's yours this time );

Going through the dumps I see quite a lot of activity mainly with the filter manager
(used by security software), NTFS and NETIO. The second tier or frequency bugchecks
were graphics and memory related.

I would like you to please scan your PC for possible infections seeing that you're already using
a pair of well regarded security programs which I doubt they cause the issues (for now).

Test your secondary HDD for errors using Seatools For DOS;
In your case it's drive F: i.e. chkdsk F: /r

warning   Warning
The Following Method Should NOT Be Performed On An SSD!

Testing the HDD:

  1. Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check
  2. Then Post the results following | THIS METHOD
  3. Download SeaTools for DOS if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
  4. If SeaTools for Windows is unable to recognize your HDD visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions.
If SeaTools For DOS does not recognize the drive;
Boot into the BIOS using the *Fxkey.
Look for an entry called SATA Mode (or something similar), it should be set to IDE / AHCI.
It's probably set to AHCI which is why SeaTools doesn't recognize them in the DOS environment.
Set it to IDE then save and exit usually by pressing the F10 key.
Now boot into SeaTools and it should detect the drives.
Start the Long Test and let it run.
Upon completion don't try to boot into Windows as it will only result in a BSOD, go back into the BIOS
and change the SATA setting back to what it was in the first place.

Reset your Page File:

1. Start Menu> Run >type control.exe system
and press the Enter key.
A windows will open and on the Left hand side you will see Advanced system settings, click it.

2. Next click on the Advanced tab and Settings which correspond to the Performance section;

3. Then the Advanced tab once more and click on the Change button;

4. Untick the checkbox next to Automatically manage paging file size for all drives;

5. Select No paging file and Click on the Set button;

6. Confirm all the windows.

Restart the PC.

8. Reverse the procedure, by following steps 1-3, only this time select System managed size
and click the Set button;

9. Recheck the box next to Automatically manage paging file size for all drives
and exit the windows by clicking the OK button;

10. Confirm all of the remaining windows by click the OK button
and restart once again to take affect.

Testing the RAM:

Tip   Tip
  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

Post back :) .
