Try making a clean install of these drivers: download link
So you must go to start->type into the search button: add remove-> click on a first link-> uninstall everything you find from nvidia->you'll have to restart your pc->download the driver from the provided link->start the driver install-> choose custom installation-> check clean installation!!!!!!!-> press next and wait until it says restart now/restart later-> choose restart now, run the game again
Report if it helped bro!

A few useres(including me) reported that the 285.79 is the only "stable" driver for our laptop y570. Try them out and I think they will help. I know for a fact that I and Velenoso666 have had the same problems with newer drivers as you're having, but velenoso666 found out that the 285.79 somehow seem to fix the stuttering/lagging problem. Give them a go by the procedure which i described in my previous post. Oh and good luck!

Nope, there is no risk while uninstalling the drivers..As long as you uninstall the nvidia drivers But you practically cannot miss them hah. Now just do it and I hope you will be pleasantly surprised with the 285.79 drivers..Just stick to my instructions on how to install new drivers and select a clean install and you'll be good to go! Good luck friend!
