Hi, I have the acer nitro 5, gtx 1050, core i5-8300H. I’ve just reinstalled windows and wiped everything from my system and I’ve download GeForce because it deleted it and i didn’t have my main GPU (1050) on the system and when I downloaded it, my main gpu appeared on the system but it’s still using my integrated graphics. Please help!

    Hi, I have switched the “preferred graphics processor” to high performance nivida processor and the “ processor to my main gpu( gtx 1050) and it worked like a charm!

    I have one more question for some reason when I go into a game like rainbow six siege for example and change the graphics all too low and then I exit and launch the game back up again it automatically changes the graphics from low to its preset graphics and it’s really annoying because I don’t want the preset graphics. I’ve checked on Nvida GeForce to see if the game is optimised but it’s not. Any ideas? Thanks

    I’ve went through control panel and did some tweaks and now it’s working perfectly fine! Thanks!
