Question Discrete GPU on laptop is stuck in extreme power saving mode ?

Feb 23, 2023
It has been a few months since I started using this ASUS TUF A15 FA507RE, and recently (within the last 2 weeks) I have been running into a consistent issue of the Nvidia RTX 3070Ti not being powered/not being accessible. I have tried all of the different combinations of Armoury Crate's GPU switches to no avail--running on only the dGPU leads to the display not turning on.

Occasionally, though more and more rarely now, hard resetting the system (holding the power for 30ish sec after powering off) will turn on the dGPU, but that is becoming less and less reliable.

System is currently still running Win 11 home, drivers are/were all up to date as of Feb 1st, and I've tried fixes I have found online such as setting priority in Windows settings, and in Nvidia control panel.

My guess is that the issue is somewhere in the BIOS, as the dGPU is not powering from that point, but the ASUS laptop BIOS is so barebones that I can't find any options related to it. The dGPU does not appear within the Device Manager, and Nvidia Settings does not detect the dGPU when this issue is happening. Any help would be appreciated, and if any more info is needed I can provide to the best of my ability.
