BSOD Error every time I enable my Graphics Card

Hello there guys,

I have a Lenovo G580 laptop. The specs are as follows
OS: Windows 8
Processor: Intel Core i7-3612 QM CPU @ 2.10 Ghz 2.10 Ghz
Graphics Card: An Intel HD Graphics Card 1664 MB (Currently in use) and an Nvidia GeForce 610M 2GB (I think)

The problem is, that my graphics card don't work and I'm force to make do with the built in intel graphics card. I have tried contacting both the laptop manufacturers and the nvidia support panel but their solutions only work temporarily.

Whenever I enable my graphics card I get a bsod error at random times. It might pop up while I am playing a game or it even shows up right after starting my laptop. I disabled the graphics card so that I can still use my laptop, but this has caused a performance reduction. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the nvidia drivers. I have tried installing the graphics drivers available on the laptop manufacturer's website and I have also tried updating my BIOS but nothing works. Currently, the state of my graphic cards is that its showing a small yellow exclamation mark error and in its properties an error is displayed that "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".

My second concern is that while playing games (using only the intel graphics card), the games start to lag after like 10-15 mins, and during those 10mins the game works flawlessly. I think this might be related to the graphic card issue. Furthermore, the game lags for like 10mins and then works okay again for the next 10mins and then again the lag and this continues on...

Any help on the above topic would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance
