    go to documents, you ll be able to see a user congif file there inside a folder called rockstar.
    Open that xml file and see what is written next to graphics, if you see your garphic card's name there that means it is already using it.
    If no replace the name by your graphics card name.

    Hope that helped you.

    DSR is not supported by your laptop, because all video outputs are routed through the Intel integrated GPU, which doesn't support DSR.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    Well you should try again open nvidia control panel, again open manage 3d settings, then click on program settings, there choose your game from list and choose High-Performance NVIDIA processor

    Illenic, if you have tried this already, I suggest you to update the nvidia driver from nvidia.com and the intel gpu driver from here.

    Look at my signiture, post your laptop's model number, OS etc.

    Hi @illenic,
    check out the link below on how to open the xml file:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FCj3CSQej8

    In the xml file you ll see a tag with tag name "video card description", in this video it is the last tag.
    Just replace whatever is written there  with your graphics card name.

    If it is already there that means it is already using your your graphics card.
    Hope that helped you.
