Yoshi, can you give any more information about when it happens and under what circumstances. For example, is it while performing a specific task, or using a specific program? Have you added any new hardware or software just before it began?

The last BSOD was a Video TDR error and was a code 116 which is always a graphics error. What it means is the graphics driver crashed and did not recover in time, which is what a TDR error means (Time Delay and Response) This is quite common in laptops with switchable graphics and is usually caused when the drivers are switching between the Internal graphics and a dedicated GPU.

One of the biggest problems is that each Vendor has specific implementation of the switching and almost all are a little different. In most cases, a driver from Nvidia does not seem to work.

The rest of yours that I checked were a stop code 9F, which is a driver power state failure and they list different drivers, but almost always, the graphics driver is listed somewhere.

But later in the stack was

That is your internal Graphics adaptor.

Also listed was a Windows Update driver which I believe was a victim and not a cause.

Could you please do a clean install of both your dedicated graphics driver and your integrated graphics driver and see if that makes a difference in your problem?

Failing that is making a choice of whether to disable either your internal or dedicated graphics . The trade off is that your dedicated graphics will give you better graphics, but it will also cut down your battery life.

I get the 0x116 within 5 seconds of starting any game. I will try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. Thanks for the help!

I had a discussion with Arc a while back re: Game Ready and he suggested that the member use a previous version. This was a different issue on a different machine and probably a different card. At that time, the previous version for that driver had no mention of Game Ready in the release note or on the download page.

The 344.48 version to be a Game Ready version, although the 340.52 mentions game ready on the download page.

If essenbe's suggestions don't get your machine healthy, you might try the 340.52 driver
GeForce 340.52 - WHQL

Please follow one solution path at a time - it makes trouble shooting an issue easier.

I did a clean install of both graphics cards, and that solved my problem for about 4-5 hours. Then, when I turned on my computer after shutting it down for the night, I started getting 116 errors again, but this time after about 5mins into a game. I will try the old driver now.

As a side note, I tried nVidia drivers 344.48 and 344.60 (released today) and neither solved my issue. Also, the .dmps from today's crashes were not created
