How can i switch the gpu of an external monitor?

 Share

I just bought a 165hz monitor and got pretty scared that i can only use 120hz and its connected to the Intel hd graphics instead of NVidia gpu. It worked like a year ago but now its broken. My cousin has the same laptop and monitor and doesnt have this issue. I don't have any mini display ports or usb-c in my laptop. How can i fix this? Please halp

What, exactly, are you trying to say?

If the monitor is connected to the laptop, and the laptop is using the Intel vide card, you need a software switch in the laptop to switch tot he nVidia card.

But without detailed specs of your system, we cannot help

Ok, now we are getting somewhere.

In order to use the nVidia graphics card built in, you typically use the nVidia software control panel under Windows to switch to that.

There are third party software packages that Dell might use to switch cards, but the nVidia one should do just fine

I already tried to switch to the nvidia one in global settings but it still doesnt work. Are there any more fixes I can try?

I'd need more detail and/or screenshots of the failure to switch to the nVidia GPU.

If your laptop is identical to your sibling as you have mentioned, and theirs is working right, perhaps you can get them to fix your settings, or tell you how they did it?

Perhaps bring it to a local computer repair shop and have then do it?

He didnt do anything, it just works, and i also thought about just getting it to a repair shop. I think that the whole hdmi port switched to igpu, can this be reversed to dgpu?

Ok, then the laptop is set to use the nVidia GPU. This of course can be tested by any video game.

So going back then to the question, what is actually not working correctly?

The monitor is being operated by the processor and not the gpu like its supposed to, it worked normally but i had to reset my laptop a few times due to technical reasons and now its operated by the processor

If the video card is set to nvidia, how do you know the Intel GPU is involved?

It's possible it's showing the default GPU for informational purposes only. Aside from that screen, does the system run fine and perform like you'd expect it to using the nVidia card?

what FPS are you getting? The GPU may not be able to take advantage of the extra refresh rate
