Sometimes these kind of DXGI errors are a result of overheating. Some things to try:

If it's a laptop there could be an accumulation of dust, blast the vents of the laptop with compressed air to clear the blockage and try again.

Desktop, increase the fan speed.

Nvidia, Manage 3D settings, set to performance.

DEV info here:

Seems some new textures are pushing Intel cards too far, the BSOD is a result of the computer shutting down to prevent physical damage to the device, the new texture settings are increasing the heat generation and the subsequent heat dissipation is not fast enough, especially on blocked up laptops.

hope that helps, it cured my son's laptop anyway.
