Hello guys, I've been in a bind for a while now. I keep searching for solutions but nothing ever pops out that is related to my problem. Every time I open this certain game (Shadowverse), this BSOD pops out. When the laptop restarts, however, the game suddenly works fine. I haven't tried any other games that can possibly make this BSOD appear, and I don't want to try it.


The solutions I see in this forum are only related to Windows 10. Can you please help me solve this? (Reverting back to an old driver is fine with me as long as it solves my problems)


Here are my specs:
