Nvidia Optimus: Can I disable the GPU?


Mar 27, 2010
This may seem like a strange request, but, sadly, I think I toasted my gpu.

I have been getting blue screens of death quite frequently, and it seems to be tied to the gpu. I have been careless about keeping the laptop in a poorly ventilated part of the desk.

Is there anyway that I can permanently disable the gpu? Does that just mean deleting the nvidia drivers and never installing them? Do you have any other suggestions?
