    Dedicated GPU not recognized by Windows


    A couple of days ago, I got a SMART hard disk error while my laptop booted. Yesterday, a repair man came down to my house to replace my HDD and installed Windows 10 Home using his own recovery media.

    Today I booted up my laptop and downloaded most of the drivers without incident. However, for 'Display adapters', Windows is using Intel(R) HD Graphics 630 instead of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 which was preinstalled on my laptop's motherboard, and which i was using before my laptop faced the SMART hard disk error. Instead, all I am shown is 'Microsoft Basic Display Adapter' with the yellow triangle warning icon. (See Screenshot (1).png)


    Under device status, I have the following status:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

    The driver trying to start is not the same as the driver for the POSTed display adapter.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    When i attempt to update the driver, I get the message shown in Screenshot (2).png, which says that Windows found driver software for my device but encountered an error while trying to install it.

    Could this be an issue with the Windows 10 recovery media that the repair guy used? Could I try and solve this problem by going into BIOS settings?

    Any suggestions and assistance would be deeply appreciated.

    Thank you.

    :)

    About GPU dedicating.

    Hello
    웅황,


    The feature that you're looking for in Windows 10 is not available. I suggest that you check with your graphics manufacturer if forcing an app/game to use a dedicated GPU to each task is available with their software.

    Let us know if you have any other concerns.

    Dedicated GPU not recognized by Windows baf8d510-04fb-4c89-bbd3-92ba9047ad9e?upload=true.png


    I have two PCI-E GPU

    GPU 0 = GTX 1080ti

    GPU 1 = GTX 960

    what I want is..

    use graphics specifications option on "DESKTOP"

    not integrated GPU or mobile windows10(notebook)

    but desktop and PIC-E GPU

    on my search, there's no way to use graphics specifications option in desktop

    but, what I found is, split the the main monitor and running specific apps and

    split again, that apps still working, have bit of problems though

    e.g. GPU 1 main monitor , run Chrome

    GPU 0 split main monitor, run GAME(PUBG)

    then you can see on task manager on GPU engine.

    running at

    GPU 1 - chrome

    GPU 0 - PUBG

    that's what I want it.

    dedicating GPU processing in DESKTOP

    Dedicated GPU not recognized by Windows

    Big Update = Disaster ( update, enable and using dead dedicated GPU )

    Yes and yes.

    Very good.

    Nope, it's not working.

    Reset and remove everything - All drives - Clean the drive. Not working Dedicated GPU not recognized by Windows :(

    I think I already hit the mark by pointing the problem on Nvidia GPU Chip. Because after clean install I'm download and run benchmark program to test the Nvidia GPU. It's showing black screen and movable mouse pointer. Once again I disable Nvdia GPU and
    run benchmark program with Integrated GPU (HD4000) and it's working.
