Laptop=Lenovo y50-70
GPU=860M
Problem=Crashes into blue screen of death after opening a program that uses the GPU.
Ive tried every driver, and ive tried resetting my windows for the 20th time. And it doesnt work :/

If you guys can help then awesome! more time to save up for a pc but for now im kinda stuck with this laptop, and using its intel HD 4600

Side note: Its been in heavy use for 3 years.
By heavy use i mean playing GPU Hungry games like 24/7

And also people recommended me about reballing but i dont have a service in my country that provides that.

If you need any more info ill be happy to respond when im online! Thx For Listening!

NEVER use a vacuum cleaner. It creates a lot of static electricity which can easily damaged electrical components.
Also a generic vacumm us never enough to clean dustmats. You need a strong burst of air like a compressor at 2-3 bar or a can of compressed air.

Sorry for not replying so fast, i had allot of exams.
So i ran the lenovo bootable diagnostics, and i ran a quick and a extended diagnostic,it finished with no errors.

So is this a software issue? And if so what should i do to fix it!
