  1. Is it possible to change my main monitor to the nvidia graphics card so I can stream better?


    When I use Obs it runs on my Nvidia Graphics card and I get a black screen. However, when I run it with the Integrated Graphics I can see my main screen (Laptop screen) but the stream is far worse and lags and makes it almost impossible to stream from. I was wondering if it was at all possible to make my Laptop Default monitor run off of the Nvidia Graphics card.

    :)

  2. Nvidia Graphics Card

    Hello Brian,

    I request you to try the following steps:

    Uninstall and Reinstall the Graphics Card Drivers.

    Step 1: Uninstall the Graphics Card
    Drivers


    • Right click on the Start menu.

    • Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    • Search for the Graphics Card
      from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select that and then remove the corrupted drivers
      from the computer.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and then restart the computer if prompted.
    After the restart, please go ahead with the next steps to install the latest drivers and check if that resolves the issue.

    Step 2: Go to the Computer or Graphics Card
    manufacturer’s website and search for the latest Windows 10 drivers available for the
    Graphics Card model and then install it by following the instructions given in the website.

    I hope this helps you. If you have any further query in future, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

    MSI Laptop monitor uses integrated graphics vice NVIDIA card

    I have an MSI laptop with a 120hz-capable monitor and a NVIDIA GTX 1060. Unfortunately, the monitor is using the integrated graphics card for the display instead of the NVIDIA card. How do I force it to use the NVIDIA card for the display instead of the integrated graphics card?

    Issues I'm seeing: This force-limits my refresh rate to 60hz and causes noticeable visual performance issues in everyday applications on Windows (e.g., the screen lags when dragging an Excel 2016 window across the screen)

    Observations: I dual-booted into Ubuntu and the screen refresh rate is now 120hz. So, since it works on Ubuntu but not on Windows (by default), I know this should be solvable at the O/S-level.

    Similar questions that I've reviewed/attempted:

    1. I have a NVIDIA GeForce graphics card as well as an integrated Intel HD graphics card
    2. Integrated graphics card being used over NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M in Toshiba laptop?
    3. Can I force Steam to use my Nvidia GPU instead of the integrated Intel card?
    4. No way my laptop will use nVidia chip instead of integrated graphics

    Windows 10 Upgrade Not Recognizing new Graphics Card

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down the issue and to provide you better assistance.

    • Did you removed the NVidia graphics card before installing Radeon graphics card?

    I suggest you to uninstall the Display adaptors (NVidia) drivers and check if it helps. Kindly follow the steps to uninstall Display drivers.

    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager
      .

    • Right click on the display driver
      and select Uninstall.
