Hello All,

I have been a long time reader and I have officially run out of places to look.

I have had a laptop for some time now. Originally I could play a bunch of games at max (or near max) setting and still get 50+ FPS. Recently, even the most basic games have a drop in FPS. I installed GPU-Z and noticed I have 2 video cards: GTX 870M and Intel HD.

While playing a game, I get these situations



Were the GPU is especially "off" while the Intel is running strong. I have the latest drivers, I have reinstalled the drivers for both Intel and NVIDIA (clean), I have done everything I can think of and search for on the internet.

I event went as far a disabling Intel HD from my computer manager, it works great! But if I try and open NVIDIA control panel it says "you are not currently using a display attached to an nvidia gpu" and I cant change any setting.

Thank you for all your help in advanced!!

****Updated****

I am still having issues, the strange thing is that I changed setting in NVIDIA control panel to force the GPU. Including the Laptop display that in only connected to the Intel HD.





While in game I get less than 1 FPS. The game is glitchy and unresponsive in the menu.
