    Don't get me wrong I love GeForce Experience, but it's irritating that the software still nags the user to update the software. While they are modifying the package they should remove the ability for the software to check for updates, I'm sure its simple to disable. What I'm saying is that it's contradictive to tell users to not install GPU drivers from the chipmaker but install a suite that nags you to do so.

    I agree with you that I need to get the driver from Lenovo, but I should always be able to install the newest graphics drivers that are compatible with my card. I play games, and I need my software and drivers to be up to date. If they list the notebook as "Windows 10 Compatible", and then they don't provide drivers for it, then I don't know why they would have listed it as compatible in the first place. You can't market a gaming laptop and discontinue drivers after a month. I'm going to contact Lenovo and see what they can do, because this is ridiculous on a machine that is barely a year old.

    I had this experience also in my Lenovo Z510. It was an upgraded Windows 10 until last week then this BSOD started showing up and now I revert to Windows 8.1. This was triggered when I'm using Photoshop or 3ds Max.

    I did try assigning my Photoshop to use the Nvidia and it works, it was originally using Intel and its constantly triggering this BSOD.

    Though, for 3ds Max, it was using Nvidia and it also constantly triggers this BSOD.

    Now I'm on my 3rd reset and I'm going to check which driver update is causing my problem, Intel or Nvidia.

    I recently tried running a game again to test if it was consistently causing the problem. I was able to run the game fine for around an hour, but got a BSOD again when I exited the game. This seems to suggest that the BSOD is being caused by the computer switching from using the Nvidia card to the Intel one.

    Also, it does look like Lenovo has not come out with any Windows 10 Nvidia drivers for quite a few systems.

    I mean right? I'm not crazy in expecting that a one year old laptop should still be receiving driver support.

    Well Lenovo has opted to not help me with anything because my one year warranty has expired, so I have opted to never buy another computer from Lenovo. So now over time as new games get released, I'm now going to get errors and sub-par performance because my most recent game optimization was October 2015. Thanks Lenovo!

    Their website forums however are currently plagued with people complaining about the issue so maybe they will do something about it. I'll let this thread know if they respond to anything, but so far they have been pretty quiet.

    It really shouldn't. Unfortunately though Lenovo has consistently gone down hill in its customer service and overall quality of its products. Hopefully there will be enough uproar that we get a new driver though. Also, for anyone still having problems falling back to the previous driver has worked for me. I've been getting stable performance for about an hour now.
