My mother (yes, mother) recently purchased an Acer Nitro 5. I noticed the contrast on it was wayyyy too much so I tried to go into the Graphics Card's driver control panel (Nividia Control Panel), but I noticed there were zero options to alter color or any of the normal settings you'd expect. Upon further investigation, I noticed it was reporting the display was plugged into the motherboard's output, using the CPU's built-in graphics. I thought this was a manufacturing error so we returned it and got a new one. Then, badabing badaboom, the same issue persists. Is this normal? Why is the built-in display plugged into the motherboard (if it even is, I can't open it up because it'll ruin the warranty). It pretty much seems like the graphics card is just sitting idly doing nothing.
