    Hi !

    I have a very annoying issue. I keep getting the above error everytime I try launch Overwatch with Nvidia GPU set as default, I have been through Blizzard support and they have gone through the following with me.

    I am running an ASUS G550JK using an Nvidia 850M 2Gb DDR3 GPU in Nvidia Optimus environment. I can launch applications like Call of Duty Black Ops 3 with no issues.

    Have you updated the drivers? Does Blizzard have any known issues with laptop chipsets?

    To do fix, you doing the following:

    - Uninstalled MSI Afterburner, ASUS GPUTweak and Intel Extreme OC utility.
    - Changed power plan to High Performance.
    - Made sure I am updated to the latest Nvidia GPU driver for my GPU 372.70(850M)
    - made sure Battery Boost was disabled in Nvidia Geforce Expierence.
    - Made sure my default profile is set to use High Performance GPU and that I manually selected Overwatch to use High Performance GPU aswell.
