Question Lenovo y530 gpu issue

Jul 10, 2020
Hi. Last night my laptop just went black after I inserted a USB cable that is connected to my camera. After it rebooted I can no longer display my screen on my external monitor. I tried reinstalling the Nvidia driver but it always comes up with the exclamation mark that it isn't working properly. Now i feel my laptop is running on the integrated gpu of the motherboard. How do i know if my Nvidia card is bricked? I ran the heaven benchmark and it is only giving me at most 11fps. The dedicated graphics card is GTX 1050. Though I'm not a gamer but i'm sure the benchmark would be faster that 11fps.

Could someone help me out? Would a whole Windows 10 reset solve the problem?

Thanks in advance!
