You are using dual monitors - correct?

I would check both connecting cables and open the case to ensure that the GPU card is fully and firmly seated. And that any connecting cables are likewise fully and firmly seated.

Also what PSU is installed: make, model, wattage, age, condition?

And check Reliability History/Monitor. May be capturing some error condition at the time of the crashes/switches.

Key is to discover what is happening and causing the laptop to crash.

Take a look at the troubleshooting tools I mentioned earlier. Reliability History/Manager and Event Viewer.

The problem needs to be identified in order to look for and find a solution.

E.g., an old or buggy driver may be the root cause.

You may need to download and reinstall the current driver - may have been corrupted.

Or roll back to an earlier driver version. New version may be faulty or incompatible in some manner.

sorry i forgot about my post but i did actually find a solution my laptop is a little weird with its power option being a slider bar from low power usage to performance i did not know that geforce had a power option in the control panel thought that was kinda weird but who cares it was set to optimal so whenever i would input something into photo shop that was heavy on the computer it would kick on the integrated card ever since i switched it to performance it hasn't switched back over such a simple solution that i had not seen once online and i looked for over 4 hours for a solution
