Windows 8.1 / 10 Graphic driver error
*Ok. So I did a format on my ASUS K501LX-DM014H.
*Preinstalled OS was Windows 8.1 64 bit and I already did a Windows 10 activation by installing it before the format.
*I got all the drivers for Windows 10 64bit from asus.com
*Did not connect the laptop to a network to configure it properly.
*Installed the drivers (BIOS was already updated to 206):
1. ATK (ATKAPCI V1.0.0040)

1. Laptop screen randomly freeze. Tried waiting 3-5min. no results. Can't do anything but reset (At any point and sometimes just before the OS starts. )
2. Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered.
I actually have this problem before when I upgraded from windows 8.1 to windows 10 before the format. When playing games this error happens and sometimes the screen freezes after.
I actually tried not installing the nVidia driver then the error disappeared. That's why I think it was the nVidia driver's fault. I tried the driver from ASUS and I also tried the updated one from Geforce but both failed. The thing is I could actually play games but sometimes I get the screen freezes or display driver stops responding error.
I need to use my laptop's GPU for games so I need a fix. Help!
1. Did I miss something?
2. What should I do?
3. If I can't get help here where?
