Hi, I have a problem with the Alienware m17x r3. Just when I disconnect the dedicated graphics card, the laptop works normally and when it is connected it turns on for one second and goes off. What may be the problem? Recently, I was able to fire a graphics card and discovery card in bios. Later, I tried to install the GPU drivers, but the error was "something like no hardware found." The next day the laptop would not turn on.

try this you might need to disable windows signature management as well for the modified inf they provide.

if you get the gtx to work I dont recommend upgrading the drivers unless you find another smilarly modified driver update which you wont get through nvidia. Good luck.

Intel HD 3000
Windows 10 installed the driver itself. Only the driver from the integrated card is installed
try the modified .inf and nvidia drivers see if they work. I believe the Intel can wirm

you can try running the inf file and the geforce drivers they should still be able to install even if your running the integrated graphics. if that dont work.

run ddu click the box that disable window driver update. switch ddu to Intel mode and choose the options to uninstall graphics drivers then reboot to safe mode, register the .inf file then install the geforce drivers see if they install, if they do reboot to bios switch over to dedicated, if you cant install drivers from safe mode you have to go to boot options again and this time disable windows driver signature enforcement then try the driver install.

When I was able to turn on the computer with the card in the device manager, it detected 2 cards: Integrated and basic microsoft graphics card

where to look for the inf drivers for GPU?
