I have a great laptop for you to test your Intel 530 HD driver: this acer VN7-592G-5306 (Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6300HQ CPU @ 2.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M + Intel® HD Graphics 530 will BSOD or black screen (hard freeze) *every time* after 20 to 120 minutes.
90% black screen (not at the boot mind you, but during a normal Windows session: black screen, hard reboot and no events in the Windows Event viewer)
This is with a Windows 10 build 1511 very latest Patch Tuesday applied.
Standard Windows installation, no anti-virus or firewall or proxy (just Windows Defender)
No program installed (except VirtualBox, and Google Chrome, NVidia Experience and Realtek HD Audio Driver and Vulkan RunTime Libraries 18.104.22.168)
The 2*8GB memory sticks have been tested with memtest86 during 9+ hours (all 13 tests, without any error)
A safe mode session works just fine (both graphic components are using the Microsoft Basic Display)
A normal session won't work unless I remove the driver of the Intel HD 530, switching it to NVidia only (in which case, no BSOD or black screen)
90% of the time, the issue is black screen (so no log or event of any kind)
I got 3 BSOD that I attach here as well (through BlueScreenView)
