One of the 680M SLi might be dead after an update?

Recommended Posts

My issue: one of the two 680M GPUs started displaying an "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".
My hardware: Clevo P37EM / Sager NP9370
My OS: Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB x64
 
I keep the OS always up-to-date (Windows LTSB only ships security and fix updates). I also have very few softwares installed. Basically, my computer was working normally, but today I was playing Overwatch (which I always play) and after some hours, I suddenly heard a Windows beep, the game froze and the computer restarted. When I was back at the desktop, I noticed the resolution was not right and then I opened the Device Manager to see that one of the 680M was giving a Error Code 43. Both GPUs appear on my BIOS setup, the BIOS correctly identifies them as 680M.
 
I found it strange, so I check my GPU VBIOS and noticed something odd, one of them was at 80.04.33.00.10 and the other was at 80.04.67.00.01 (I get these drivers here). I know for a fact that since some older NVIDIA Driver, the VBIOS must be 80.04.33.00.10 or else I got some errors on this SAGER model, so I flash 33 on both a while back. I then proceeded to flash the correct version again. When I run DDU I notice it only detects the VBIOS version for one of the GPUs, the other one doesn't show the VBIOS version. My results are:
 
NV Driver 398.36
 
ROM 33
PCI BUS 2 working
PCI BUS 1 error code 43
 
ROM 67
PCI BUS 2 working
PCI BUS 1 error code 43
 
 
NV Driver 391.35
 
ROM 33
PCI BUS 2 working
PCI BUS 1 error code 43
 
ROM 67
PCI BUS 2 working
PCI BUS 1 error code 43
 
 
Can a Nvidia update or Windows update brick a GPU? How can I know if it's a software or hardware issue? I'm afraid that one GPU died as I don't have the money to replace it now and it would be difficult to find a spare new 680M (which is now old hardware) where I live. I'm panicking a little...

      My laptop's CPU is i7 4700MQ, iGPU is GMA HD 4600, and dGPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX860m.
      Please send me a modified BIOS(.ROM) file with GMA HD 4600 disabled among the two graphics.

      I got a msi ge60 2pf Apache pro & its specs :
       
      Processor-i7 4710MQ
      Ram-16GB 
      VGA- GTX 860M 2GB Maxwell 
       
      Could anyone tell me the best overclock that I could use on this GPU?
      Please keep in mind that the voltage cannot be changed as this is a laptop
       
      Thank you

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)
