Predator G9-791: Black screen when starting games

Hi all! New to this forum. I've really enjoyed gaming on my G9-791 for a while. But recently I've run into trouble.

When I launch games such as Cities:Skylines, the game will start, music running in the background but the screen is black. Same goes for other games, such as Planet Coaster and Cossacks 3. I tried running Planet Coaster and Cities solely from the Intel chipset, and the games did start (with bad graphics, of course..). My Nvidia drivers are up to date, so is Windows 10.

What should I do? I've tried to look into the nVidia control panel and tweak the settings but it has not helped!

    Found the answer! Needed to reinstall an old version of the Intel chipset drivers (the old drivers available at Acers homepage).
