    Driver crashes in-game with Dual Graphics

    leetgrain

      Hey, I've had this problem for a long time now (Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I believe), and now whenever I use Dual Graphics on my machine, the drivers start to fail - it used to make Firefox (or any browser) just a completely black screen, it doesn't do it anymore, but now after a while it will come up with a BSOD stating CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION whenever I turn it off.

       

      I run an APU and  a GPU together (specs below) and it seems to be the GPU that's failing on me - for the while, I've been using only the APU and that works fine.

       

      When I'm running Dual Graphics, In any 3D game, the game artifacts immensely until the drivers fail and restart. It does cause frame lag from time to time, and also does crash 2D games, on both though, after a while red and cyan squares start to appear, and start spreading, even when only on the desktop, and it won't stop until I disable Dual Graphics and restart.

       

      It's really getting on my nerves and no amount of updates seem to fix it, it's gotten to the point where my GPU is practically a brick, and it is affecting my work as a designer, so thanks in advance to any readers!
