Hello, folks:Quick summary of questions: how can I keep Nvidia GPU in use for everything? If I don't install Optimus, will that keep the Nvidia GPU on, or is Optimus needed to turn it on? My laptop uses Nvidia Optimus technology. That allows integrated In

    Nvidia GPU running all the time after Windows 10 2004 Update.

    My laptop has Nvidia optimus technology which switches GPU automatically based on the task. This helps to save battery by using integrated graphics for light loads. It was completely fine before the update. After the 2004 update, my Nvidia GPU runs all
    the time which has reduced battery life significantly. Please help me fix this issue.

  3. BSOD after the NVIDIA GPU is activated

    For the past month i've been struggling with an issue on my laptop, related to its GPU.

    Whenever my NVIDIA GPU and the Intel GPU are activated, and the NVIDIA GPU isn't under stress for about 5 minutes, (by "under stress" I mean using programs that require detailed graphics and a lot of graphical processing) the BSOD will appear showing the
    message error "NMI_HARDWARE_FAILURE".

    Somehow I've tackled the issue of the BSOD by deactivating the NVIDIA GPU and solely use the Intel GPU, whenever I feel the NVIDIA GPU isn't required for my actions.

    Even so, it is annoying to have to activate/deactivate the NVIDIA everytime i need it.

    I have already used programs such as WhoCrashed and BlueScreeView to understand better the causes of these crashes. Those programs say that the leading cause of the BSOD are the files "hal.dll", "ntoskrnl.exe" and "PSHED.dll".

    I would like to know if there is a way to correct these errors and how should I proceed to correct them.

    My laptop specs are:

    Acer Aspire 7 A715-72G-79XK

    CPU: Intel i7-8750H

    GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050

    RAM: 16GB

    Windows 10 Won't use NVIDIA GPU, Uses Integrated Graphics Instead! (LAPTOP)

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and after the installation I went to launch a game from my library, but instead of the usual 60 fps that I am used to, I received a meager 23 fps. I immediately went to check on my NVIDIA Control Center, but it would not
    open.

    I then found the newest driver for my graphics card and downloaded it, all went well, was able to open up the control center once again.

    I set all of my games to the "High performance NVIDIA graphics card" and clicked Apply changes. I then opened up a game and to my surprise, it still did not use the NVIDIA GPU, instead using the Integrated card. So I closed the game, Right Click on the Game>Run
    With Graphics Processor>High Performance NVIDIA Graphics Processor.

    It still did not work.

    My Laptop: HP ENVY-17 jo53ea

    SPECS:

    Windows: Windows 10

    Processor: Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz

    RAM: 12 GB

    System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M

    Integrated GPU: Intel HD 4000

    DirectX Version: 12

    Please help! This basically renders my games unplayable!
