    BSOD when using nVidia driver || driver_power_state_failure


    Many games including minecraft cause BSOD when switching from intel hd graphics to nvidia geforce gt 740m graphics

    PS. If there is any more required information let me know, this is the first time I've actually had to ask for help with this stuff

    Some members have had success resolving issues by installing the appropriate driver for their gfx card from the NVidia site

    best of luck - hope it helps.
