Windows 7: BSoD each time I launch a game

BSoD each time I launch a game


So I have a MSI GT70 with two graphic cards : an intel HD Graphics 4000 used for the desktop and anything that doesn't involve too much GPU usage and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 675M used for gaming. I made sure the Nvidia GPU was used when gaming, so the problem can't be swapping. But, each time I launch a game or anything that uses the Nvidia graphic card my computer shows a Blue Screen of Death. I have tried reinstalling drivers, even by cleaning the older one. Still the BSoD. I have tried the factory reset and installing the latest driver, still the BSoD. I'm really worried as changing a GPU in a laptop is not a piece of cake for a noob like me. So I hope it's a problem that can be solved with software.

Quick update on my post : I have reinstalled all the windows 7 updates (which where installed before my factory reset so anyway I kinda knew they had nothing to do with the BSoD) and I updated my bios .. Still got the BSoD.
Could the Nvidia graphic card be broken ? It still launches the game for about 10-30 min before crashing.

The fact that it runs for 10 to 30 minutes before crashing suggests that the laptop (or graphics card) might be overheating. Have you had the laptop cleaned recently? Do you have it sitting on a hard surface as you play, so the cooling slots aren't blocked? (I.e. not on your lap, or on a bed.)

ty for your answer !
I have checked temperatures and it never goes higher than 70 Celsius and knowing MSIs reputation on overheating I use it on a cooling pad. So nothing BSoD worthy there :/
