Problem with NVIDIA GeForce GTX675M

So I recently bought a new laptop (link below), and I was very happy with it except for Windows 8. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit by bootable USB, and everything went fine. I installed the drivers, but I was soon suprised by a blue screen of death, caused by my NVIDIA Drivers. I uninstalled this driver and basically finished installing everything else. I checked the dxdiag and realized that my computer was using the standard integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 instead of my GeForce GTX675M. I did some research and most recommend to simply disable the Intel graphics card, which only lead to a black screen. Then I read about prioritizing my GTX in the BIOS, but I do not have the option available. I tried to look for a BIOS update but was unsuccesful since PROWORX (the company of my computer) doesn't seem to provide them anywhere.

Please help me ;_;

Download new drivers and install them.

Well, I downloaded the latest NVIDIA drivers off their webpage and it would cause a blue screen of death after around 2 minutes. So I was forced to deinstall them again...

Try running a disk clean up to make sure.

Considering its a fresh install, you could always install Windows again. As a last resort, that it.

The disk clean up had hardly anthing to clean... only like 5mb of thumbnails were deleted

I also tried to go back to windows 8 at one point, but the graphics card still did not work. So I went back to Windows 7 again and it still didnt work. What I find interesting is that it originally did work on the win8 that i bought it with. So maybe i just need some very unique drivers but I do not know.

any other suggestions? thx for the replies by you.

Ok so I have no idea how this happened but I simply tried once more to install the drivers and this time my computer did not blue screen. Even though the Device Manager tells me that it is still using the Intel Graphics card, I tried to play a game and it was recommended ultra settings. I went ahead and tested it and it suddenly works...

Idk if it was just luck or something you told me but thanks a lot my computer is finally working again :D DDDD
