    BSOD 0x3b caused by igdkmd64.sys


      I've been having this problem for a while now but never connected it to the integrated graphics.  I have a discrete card that I use, but I have dummy monitor set up on the integrated graphics, so I can take advantage of Intel Quicksync for watching movies.  I have a 2500k that is currently not overclocked. 


      I used to get a lot of crashes during startup when I had Windows 7 if I started the system with my tv on.  I never experienced any other crashes.


      I recently wiped my drive and installed Windows 8.  The crashes have been coming often during startup with the tv off and I have also experienced several crashes when I turn off the tv and leave the computer running.  I'll turn it back on to a blue screen.  Every minidump shows igdkmd64.sys as the culprit.  It makes sense because the system is switched onto the integrated graphics.  I have never seen a single crash with the tv on. =


      I have used multiple drivers and the ones that come on the discs with Win 7 and 8 seem not to crash.  From reading different forums, it seems that this started with later drivers.


      I've done a lot of stress testing due to overclocking experiments with Prime95 and have never had a crash there except what was related to undervolting the CPU. 


      My next testing step would be to take out the discrete card and run just on the integrated graphics, but I don't want to do that if there's some alternative. 

      Here's what blue screen view shows:
