Hi there @rajetch,
Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. I understand that after some Windows updates your computer is not displaying properly with the graphics card installed, but will work with the integrated graphics adapter. I am happy to help with this.
I would suggest that you use a System Restore to go back to the settings before those updates, as it sounds like one of them is not friendly to your graphics card, assuming you have a restore point from before then. HP PCs - Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 10, 😎 If your graphics card works then, I would suggest setting any of your network connections to metered, so that you can pick and choose which Windows updates install, and which do not. Please see this page for how to set a connection as metered: How, When, and Why to Set a Connection as Metered on Windows 10 - howtogeek.com
Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Thank you for the update, and with the new evidence I agree with you. Were you able to test your original system with a different graphics card?

As you still had a BSOD using the integrated graphics, you should take a look through this document: HP PCs - Error Messages Display on a Blue Screen during Startup or Boot (Windows 10, 8, 7). It is quite comprehensive, and should be helpful with this.
Be sure to do the recommended hardware diagnostics to see if anything pops out at you as well.
Let me know the results or if there is anything else I can help with.

I've started the PC in safe mode and uninstalled all the video drivers. RE-installed the basic onboard driver and the system seems to be working fine.
Will update after a few w days of use.
Thanks for you assistance
