A few days ago, my Lenovo Ideapad 700-15ISK randomly begun BSODing every login, saying VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR. I suspected that it was because of a corrupted driver with my GPU (GTX 950M), and figured a reinstall would fix this issue.
However, I tried reinstalling windows, deleting all partitions, updating my BIOS, and have used DDU in safe mode many times. I even tried reinstalling the Lenovo drivers for the BIOS, Chipset, and Intel VGA. However, I am still having this BSOD when I try to install the nvidia graphics drivers, and the installation approaches the end (It almost seems like the BSOD happens every time the GPU is activated). BlueScreenView is saying watchdog.sys and dxgkrnl.sys (DirectX Graphics Kernel) are the culprits.
I am lost at what to do at this point, and I understand that this could be an issue of hardware with my GPU (but am really hoping it's not). However, I wanted to reach out here first to see if anyone could give me some guidance, or to see if anyone else is having this issue.
