Laptop Graphic card problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new laptop and I can't make it work on it's video card, it's working on the integrated one (INTEL HD GRAPHICS 4000)

I have the latest NVIDIA drivers installed.

I tried disabling the integrated one but still the laptop won't use the proper one. Someone told me to try disabling it in BIOS but there's no such option, there are really few options in BIOS compared to my PC, if anyone knows anything about this problem please help!

Try installing the Drivers again.

Also the settings in the Bios should be in something called switchable graphics. In my experience you can't turn it off but you can switch it from a fixed to dynamic. Fixed is based on whether you have the power supply plugged in, while dynamic is based on specific applications. In the past fixed seem to work the best. 

 

Also I'm assuming you have some sort of ATI mobile card. So like I said install catalyst. It should give you the option to switch the card yourself with the software.

@Apinchof I tried installing the drivers from ASUS site first, getting them one by one, then I tried installing them from the mobo cd, nothing changed, i have NVIDIA not ATI.
