Blue screen on Lumion startup

I have a new HP laptop with intel i7, 16gb ram, 2gb ATI radeon 6770M with latest drivers, windows 7-64bit

would like to try out Lumion, but the display driver crashes and I got the blue screen of death whenever I tried to open a file(tried the example files that came with it) after starting the program.  Finally gave up and uninstalled Lumion.  Anyone else have this problem?  I have other rendering software that works fine on this system, but not this one for some reason.

1) What's the full product ID of this laptop?

2) Which version of Lumion is it?

Lumion 1 Free?
Lumion 1 Basic/Ultimate?
Lumion 2 Basic/Ultimate?

Display driver Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers for Windows 7® stopped responding and has successfully recovered!
Geforce 550m and Intel HD...
I uninstalled the nvidia driver so now I have only intel graphics, but it is the same. It shows this message and then bluescreen.

What should I do?

It sounds like your laptop uses power-saving Optimus technology, ie, 2 graphics cards: a fast Nvidia 550M card for 3D applications and a slow Intel card for word processing, web browsing etc.

The Nvidia control panel allows you to specify which applications should use the fast 550M card. Here's how to do that:
