    Dedicated graphic card not shown in the graphic options in Win10 settings.

    I honestly have no clue if it matters or not regarding the usage of graphic cards. All I know is that my dedicated graphics card is not used. Changing settings in AMD control app does nothing, this is my last hope that if I manage to change that to how it
    should be, games will start using the dedicated graphics card. Therefore I would be grateful if someone who actually knows how to attach my dedicated card to the high performance option in gaming spoke up.

    Cheers,

    Laptop NVIDIA GeForce Card - Dedicated Memory

    Anything in bold is copy pasted from information elsewhere.

    Laptop Acer Aspire v3-772g
    Windows 10
    NIVIDIA GeForce GT 750m

    Systemrequirementslab.com sometimes spits at me that I have 3gb or 4gb dedicated video memory on my card, and sometimes 1gb.

    So I dediced to find out myself.

    ----------------------
    Start -> Run -> Msinfo32 -> Components -> Display:

    I have 2.
    One is obviously my Intel HD Graphics 4600
    "Adapter RAM 1.00 GB (1,073,741,824 bytes)"
    1 GB on the intel HD graphics sounds about right?

    And the other is my NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M
    "Adapter RAM (1,048,576) bytes"



    What's going on here msinfo32 suggests my card has 1 MB of memory?
    This laptop's graphics card should have 3 GB or 4 GB dedicated video memory.

    Am I misunderstanding how my system memory is used? Does it somehow use some of that ram as dedicated memory to my card as well? I haven't changed any settings nor know how to.
    "Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 16.0 GB"
    --------------------------------------------
    NVIDIA Control Panel:
    Help -> System Information -> Scroll down to the info:
    "Total available graphics memory: 12228 MB"
    "Dedicated video memory: 4096 MB DDR3"
    "System video memory: 0MB"
    "Shared system memory: 8132 MB"

    Ok this is looking more reasonable? What is lying to me and why?
    ----------------------


    Can someone explain to me please. I'm rather tech savvy usually with myself under going study for ICT, mainly networking etc.
    Any explanation would help greatly thanks. Or directions to help change or fix what ever is going on if it's not correct.

    Attached screenshots as reference to the information.
