  1. System Won't Use Dedicated Graphics, Defaults to Integrated


    Laptop: Dell G3 3779

    So a friend of mine updated their GeForce drivers a while ago and suddenly their laptop is using integrated graphics for everything, they get low FPS even on non demanding titles such as League that their laptop should and was able to handle just fine.

    We sat through it for a whole day trying to figure out what the problem was, here's a short, possibly non comprehensive list of things we've tried to no avail:
    • Update Windows + All drivers
    • Uninstall graphics driver with DDU then reinstall latest
    • Rollback to gpu driver before the problem started
    • Try to force use of dedicated gpu through Nvidia control panel, game settings, and through disabling integrated gpu in device manager
    • Scanning for viruses
    • Checking temperature, airflow, heat
    • Checking all processes and services
    • Clean Boot
    • Overclocking, benchmarking on Overwatch, no difference in performance whatsoever
    Attached are some diagnostics taken today, hopefully we can work together to resolve this.

    :)

  2. How to make dedicated GPU card to be preferred instead of Integrated?

    Hi,

    You could check the BIOS for a setting to disable the integrated graphics or make the dedicated graphics the default.
