I just recently purchased a 144hz monitor for my Alienware m17xR4 and am currently using a mini-DP to DP cable to connect the two. The thing here is that I have to enable switchable graphics in order for the mini displayport output to work. With that being said, I've recently gotten several force shutdowns due to my GPU (both) overheating, going up to 100 deg C when running a game and sitting at 60 deg C while idle. Both drivers are up to date. This happens when I connect the monitor and my laptop using an HDMI port as well, which is how I narrowed it down to it being switchable graphics. When I turn switchable graphics off, the computer sits at ~40 deg C and goes up to about 80 at most when being pushed. I would most certainly like to utilize what I have, and run everything at 144fps, which my computer is certainly capable of (other than overheating). Would anyone happen to know a solution to these high temperatures, or how to enable the mini-DP port on my laptop without enabling switchable graphics? Thanks!
