    What will happen if I disable my only display adapter


    An engineer at Adobe is helping me diagnose a problem with Photoshop. He suggested that I disable my AMD card from device manager and run Photoshop on the integrated graphics to see if the issue persists.

    When I check Device Manager, I see only one display adapter listed:

    Shouldn't the integrated graphics also be listed? If AMD is my only display adapter, I am reluctant to disable it.

    Windows version 1903 (OS Build 18362.592)

  3. I have two display adapters showing...


    Looking at Display Adapters in Device Manager of my Thinkpad 540p laptop I see two display adapters listed, an Intel HD Graphics 4600 and an NVIDIA GeForce GT730M. The reason I was looking was that I am having some issues with some photo display software and it was suggested that hardware GPU acceleration could be the problem and I was checking that the drivers are up to date (they are). My question is: do I need both these adapters to be enabled? Could they be conflicting? I am hesitant to disable anything without asking advice first. Can I disable (say) the Intel adapter without seriously disabling my machine?
