    VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (igdkmd64.sys) crashing my NEW laptop and BSOD while gaming Windows 10


      Recently I bought a new laptop, Lenovo Y50, and had no issues with it. I started playing a game called "Path of Exile" and while in the middle of the game it would freeze and then cause my laptop to crash into BSOD and give me the error message VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (igdkmd64.sys) which looked like this:


      I have searched through for assistance but found no resolution in the attempts I made. The most recent attempt was uninstalling the Intel Driver but that just lowered my FPS entirely. So I reinstalled and the problem came up again and then I foolishly shut my laptop off before it hit the BSOD and when I booted it back up then screen was all black and not changing. Scared of ruining my new computer, I hard shut down the laptop once again and then it booted up normally, only that it was much slower. Have I damaged my laptop? If so, what steps do I need to take? And yes, I have insurance.
