Hello guys,

I'm posting this because i'm running out of solutions

My pc is a: ASUS - N56VZ (http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/N56VZ/)
I bought an: 120GB 2.5-inch SSD 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW | Samsung Memory & Storage (http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/memory-storage/MZ-7TD120BW)
And an: SATA 2nd HDD Hard Drive Caddy for 9 5mm Universal CD DVD ROM Optical Bay | eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/SATA-2nd-HDD-Hard-Drive-Caddy-for-9-5mm-Universal-CD-DVD-ROM-Optical-Bay-/290636895162)

What i did:
1-) I cloned my hdd to my ssd
2-) Removed my hdd , and placed it in dvd place with the item bought from ebay posted above
3-) Placed the cloned SSD were the HDD original was
4-) Configurated BIOS to boot from the SSD
5-) All went fine but when i tryed to play LoL , i noticed a FPS drop , with the HDD was 60 fps and with the SSD it was 30 fps
6-) Since that was strange i tryed to open NVIDIA control panel , and a error appears "You are not currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU"
7-) I went to Computer -> Manage -> Device Manager -> And clicked on NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M
8-) It gave me the error "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

I have no idea why that happened, so i tried to resolve the issue, the lines above is what i tried

1-) Updating the NVIDIA drivers with more recent ones, via official NVIDIA site (The problem persists)
2-) Clean install NVIDIA drivers, unnistaling all the old ones (Problem persists)
3-) Reformating Windows 7 64bits , in the SSD , installed the official drivers from the CD (Problem persists)
4-) Removed the 2nd HDD (problem persists)
5-) Removed the SSD , and placed the original HDD , where original was placed (Problem persists)
6-) In method 5, all was back to default , HDD in right place , no SSD whatsoever and the problem keeps happening. (Problem persists)
7-) Desactivated Intel Graphic Card, and succefully activated NVIDIA graphic Card, tryed to open LoL , and it gave me the error "direct3derror" (Problem persists)
8-) Removed the hdd from the pc , placed the SSD as the primary disk, clean install windows 7 64 bits , installed the drivers from the orginal dvd of asus pc (Problem persists)
9-) Posting this in this site , and pray for help (Problem persists)

I'm afraid i have damaged the hardware, but i dont think so, and i'm not completly sure if i still have warranty or not (via the changes i made)
I'm thinking that it may be the OPTIMUS Tecnhology that is not working, I already tried to install it , but it appears the error "No compatible hardware detected"

Any help will be much appreciated
