Hello, and welcome to SevenForums!

Your NVidia Graphics driver seems to be causing the issue:

But here's what I find interesting:

Card name: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
Manufacturer: Intel Corporation
Chip type: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
Your NVidia Card is not showing up as your main GPU, although it is recognized as a component:

Name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M
Device ID: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1213&SUBSYS_10CB1462&REV_A1\4&5435C8C&0&0008
It may be that your BIOS isn't set up for an off-board GPU like your GeForce GTX 670M. Here's how you can try to resolve this:

1) Restart your computer. Immediately after it turns on, you should see on the bottom of your screen "Press <Key> to enter setup", or "BIOS Setup: <Key>". Repeatedly tap the key it says to press, until you get to a blue screen (NOT a BSOD) with information about your computer.

WARNING: The BIOS contains critical information that, if tampered with incorrectly, could FATALLY DAMAGE YOUR PC. Please follow these next instructions to the best of your ability, and try not to explore in there!

2) Use the side arrow keys to select "Advanced", "Advanced Settings", or similar. If it automatically goes there, continue. If it doesn't, press enter.

3) Select "North Bridge Configuration", "Video Configuration", "Internal Graphics", or similar, depending on what kind of BIOS you have.

4) Select "Primary Video Controller", "Primary Video Adapter", "Initiate Graphic Adapter", or similar. Press enter if it does not enter right away.

5) Select "PCI", "PCIe", or similar to switch to your external graphics card, pressing enter if needed.

6) Return to the main "Advanced" page. From there, use the side arrow keys to select "Exit", and scroll to "Save Changes and Exit". Press Enter, and your computer should now restart with the main graphics controller as your external card.

Best of luck,

Thanks for the answer im gonna try that today.

Not sure if i can acces the bios tho because I tried to acces it once and i couldnt .

Also when doing this is there any risk of making the laptop not boot up or somethibg skmilar like black screen because somethinf happened to the gpu?
If yes i could just acces the bios again and changebthe setting back or?

Why don't you just try rolling back on your Nvidia driver first,

Your current version is the latest, try an earlier version,

Do a clean install of the display driver.
  • Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
  • Install the driver again. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

It's also worth noting that laptops run dual graphics for a reason. It will use the Intel iGPU for day to day tasks, non-strenuos stuff like web browsing, Word, emails etc. When the GPU requires more power (for example in gaming) it will automatically switch to the dedicated GPU, this is how they're meant to work. I wouldn't recommend altering this if you've had no problems with either scenario in the past.

Ok so I uninstalled/inistalled the Drivers as you said and lets see if it helps.

And as expected I wasnt able to acces the bios.After pressing the power on button i pressed delete to acces the bios(setup) but unfortunalty i could only acces a black screen called Task Manager or smth similar where i had 2 option.

Either boot with windows 7 or acces a tool when pressing tab.(the tool is irelevant)
Anyone can help me with how to acces the bios?

Bozad:Ye at the beginning evrything worked but this laptop is now 2 years old surely after the extensive use and bunch of driver and programs download something happend maybe.And I anyways wanted to use the main GPU all the time so ye.

Tried smashing f2, f10 or f12? There is always a way to get into bios.

When starting my pc i get 4 options,enter setup,recovery, diffrent booting options and configure bigfoot booting.

ALl of them are not the Bios.
I have a feeling that MSI somehow blocked the acces to the Bios on this Laptop :/

OK so after i tried a reinstall of the drivers I got another Bluescreen when i left the physx and 3D options setting in the Nvidia control panel on auto.I switched both to the Nvidia High speed processore which should atleast make the bluescreens less frequent.

OK another update
After playing for about 6 hours since i reinsatlled the drivers and cahnged the settings to high spedd card i didnt get a bluescreen so far.

This leads me to believing that there is some kind of problem between the HD 4000 GPU and the GTX 670M.Maybe when switching between them or smth similar I dont know.
This leads me to belive that this is also not a hardware issue and more a driver and communication between the 2 GPU issue.

So anyone know how to permanently fix it?And also still no clue how to acces bios on msi GT 70 :/
