    Thanks USASMA. I will certainly keep an eye on this forum to see if a solution can be found.

    Skysoldier, thanks for the advice. I dont know how easy it will be to turn back the clock and go back to 8 from 8.1. I only use the laptops for games and I think it will be easier to start from scratch and clean install windows8. A mate of mine told me about this site https://ninite.com/ which is a great way of installing the apps that I used. Its then just the games which I can do as and when.

    Having said all that, I think it is poor that I am having to do it all and, joking aside, it does make you look at a games console and think maybe that is an easier option.

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (igdkmd64.sys)


    Hi SkySoldier - I did exactly as you suggested on the global settings for NVidia - No luck! But thanks anyway. I'm likely to follow Simonvick's drastic course of action if no solution appears soon.

    Hi, I have been doing some testing and trying different things out and I think I have fixed my problem. I left Grid 2 running for over 2 hours with not so much as a hitch so I think it might be fixed. This is what I did, I uninstalled my AMD drivers (13.11) and then I uninstalled the Intel drivers from the programs and Features application within the control panel. I then went to device manger (right click this computer and choose properties). I right clicked on the Intel card and selected uninstall. So now when I right click on my desktop there is nowhere to choose any kind of graphic properties. I then restarted my laptop and installed the latest AMD Drivers again. The strange thing is the intel drivers seem to reinstall themselves. Not the ones that were installed but an earlier version. I have taken a couple of screen shots that will hopefully make it clear what drivers are installed. Let me know how you get on and good luck. If it goes wrong again I will repost.

    In my opinion The computer stays the best game console!

    Heyhey,

    So, I got like exactly the same problem! I have installed the new 8.1 Windows and since then i get messages that my computer is low on memory... I don't know a lot about computers besides from the games^^ So i asked my father how i can do something about the low memory but he says that my computer has enough memory! And (as it has been said quite some times on this topic) when i play LoL (league of legends) my computer restarts on it's own at least like 3 times a day... My dad says it's a problem with the graphic drivers and he installed updates for the intel hd graphics ad other things but that didn't change anything... So, yeah, I have read the answers on this topic but i don't understand a thing about what you guys say :P as I said above I don't know a lot about computers and when i read like : "You have to uninstall the drivers and install others and then do this and that" I don't know what to do exactly and how to do it... Is there someone who can explain to me how to resolve the problem step by step? I would really appreciate it It's been a week i can't play games normally...

    Already a big thanks to those able to help me

    I can't really help further than what I've said so far. I haven't had any BSODs or crashes since I forced the Nvidia GPU to do everything. The Intel drivers have crashed a few times but it does not matter as nothing is running off them. I've tested a ton of games and they all work fine.

    Do you have a Nvidia or AMD/ATI GPU?

    this thing worked for me - 1st update the bios firmware and then go to NVidia control panel, adjust the image settings to let the 3D application decide

    Just to let everyone know, Intel have recently released new graphics drivers and now I have no issues letting programs and games use the Intel Integrated Graphics. No more BSODs. This is on Windows 8.1.
