I recently installed Skyrim on my laptop and in the options it shows only the intel graphics card and suggests a low graphics setting. When I change to 'always use Nvidia' in the Nvidia control panel, the Nvidia card appears, ultra high settings are recommended and as soon as I start the game it crashes.
From then on, until I switch the settings back to auto my laptop crashes right after startup whenever I do something, like open a browser. I'm using an external monitorwith 1920x1200 setting, not the laptop monitor, but the Nvidia card should be able to handle that, right?
I also wonder about the auto-select feature, if the laptop crashes when I set to Nvidia only, did it ever select that card before? But that's a mere side question.
