Windows 10: Disabling On-board Graphics Card (igdkmd64.sys)

    Disabling On-board Graphics Card (igdkmd64.sys)


    I've been having some issues with BSOD's occurring over the last couple of days which consistently print out a specific message "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED igdkmd64.sys" which from what I understand is somehow related to my default display adapter Intel(R) HD Graphics 530.

    I've attempted doing updates, rollbacks, re-installations, etc and nothing has worked. Is there some way I can simply disable that specific card and allocate my dedicated graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M as the only running video card?

    I did try the simple process of going into Device Manager and disabling my 530 but it caused some weird resolution glitches.

    Is there a proper way I can disable my 530 in an attempt to see if it stops these random crashes from occurring again, and if so can someone please give me instructions on how I can do that.

    Cheers.

    You need to disable the on board graphics card in bios.
