  1. Hello, I have Asus K53SV laptop , using Geforce 540GTM driver... well I have reinstalled all drivers and tried different methods to fix it , but suddenly my dxdiag doesnt show I m using nvidia , still shows INTEL HD ... and I really want to fix this and make sure my computer is running on geforce instead nvidia, since I m playing games and nvidia would be better obviously. Could anyone help me? Currently I m trying to reinstall both drivers again, already disabled Intel , but after that it said N/a on dxdiag :l

    Drivers don't work that way. You can't use an Nvidia driver with Intel graphics just because you want to. You use Intel drivers with Intel graphics, Nvidia drivers with Nvidia graphics, AMD drivers with AMD graphics, etc. Trying to install the wrong driver will give you just the results you are experiencing.

    I think the correct way to fix this is to install the Intel HD driver and then clean install the nVidia driver second.
