for example in cs go i have 130 while i should have about 180

 

That's not using the intel GPU, it wouldn't get that high, unless all setting are on super low. If you've got the settings cranked up, then it's likely using the GPU.

I dunno, I'm out of ideas, perhaps someone else will come along in the next day or so that will provide better insight

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

The game is ran by the dgpu, the monitor isnt

I think you mis-understand how hardware works.

If the game is running under the nVidia card, it's putting out the signal to the monitor, the Intel iGPU has nothing to do with it

You can have one GPU doing the work while another handles the output. It's most common in laptops, too.

 

But aside from verifying that what OP is saying is possible, I can't really help much. I've never owned a gaming laptop. But this is what I can say:

 

I know vaguely that there is some type of switch that is used to switch the display from iGPU to dGPU and that some switches work differently than others, and that some are better than others.

 

OP said they had to reset the laptop a few times. So I suspect this has something to do with drivers for that switch. My best advice would be to go to the laptop manufacture's webpage and download and install all display and chipset drivers, even if they are older than what you have. They may include some settings that could get this working again.

most monitor ports on laptops aren't fed by the dGPU but the iGPU. so the D GPU renders the game then sends it over to the I GPU to display. this often results in 10-15% performance lost but there isn't anything you can do to change it.

there maybe 1 port thats wired from the D-GPU while another comes from the I GPU, Thats not something typically mentioned in a manual of a dell unit.
