Thanks for joining the Graphics community.
This issue might be fixed if you try removing any Intel graphics driver and Nvidia drivers from Control Panel.
If you would like to disable the Intel graphics, you need to check for any BIOS or even some settings through Optimus program.
Please provide information about your computer model:
What is exactly the computer model?
Which version of Windows do you have? Windows 32- or 64-bit?
I checked the BIOS there is no information on GPU there.
My computer is this one:
I got the Geforce 980M + 32Gb RAM + SSD. Windows 8 PRO (64 bit)
I Use a 3D software that uses the GPU to help calculation (CUDA). Even though i go to OPTIMUS SETTINGS and select both global and the 3D program to use the HIGH PERFORMANCE NVIDIA card
the software insists on using both cards and so it crashes. I have another notebook with an earlier card (geforce 560M with a sandy bridge model) and there was no INTEL Graphics HD there. But now all the processors have this card?
This is not the issue here. Reinstalling WONT solve the problem.
I would prefer a solution that would put the GEFORCE CARD the primary card and disable the INTEL that only gets in my way crashing the software. Video Card Switching is NOT needed here.
From the information I found for the Sager NP8268-S , there is not a way to disable switchable graphics on your model.
Intel should not PUSH their card forcibly. Thats not their business. It just ruins everything.
I have EXACTLY the same problem. I'm trying to hook up an external monitor and I've read on other forums the CPU intergrated graphics card is to blame. My external monitor WILL NOT WORK due to this and there is NO way to disable the intergrated graphics card. I have ZERO need for it as I'm running dual 980m's in sli.
