Event Timeline

You use an older Nvidia GPU drives, update it from Nvidia support site can solve/mitigate this problem
Make sure you use Nvidia discrete GPU before launch Blender
AFAIK your Nvidia GT 710M and Intel HD 4600 both meet minimum Blender requirement to open and use Blender 2.8x, but your nvidia GTX 710M not meet Blender requirement to be used as render GPU, GT 710M have Compute Capability 2.1, request minimum 3.0

From what I can see, this is not a bug but a hardware limitation.
Closing then.
