    Intel HD graphics 5500 is crashing while launching Assassin's Creed Syndicate

      Sorry if this has been asked before, did a quick search but couldn't really find a close match to my problem.

      My computer specs:

      CPU: Intel Core i7 5500u

      GPU: Intel HD graphics 5500 / Nvidia Geforce GTX 850M (4GB Version)

      RAM:8GB DDR3

      OS: Windows 8.1 Home

       

      If I set Assassin's Creed to use my Nvidia GPU, it launches fine, and there's no lag when playing at FHD/"Very High" settings. The game lags if i set it to "Ultra High".

      I want to test how this game performs in Intel HD Graphics 5500, but for some reason, the game fails to launch if I set the preferred GPU to "Intel HD Graphics 5500" in Nvidia Control Panel.

      I get an error saying the graphics driver has stopped responding.

      Google search suggests the game is playable using intel HD graphics 5500, but it's not working on my laptop.

      Could someone suggest a fix? What am I doing wrong?

      Thanks..

       

       

      UPDATE:

      Here's my Intel graphics driver:
