Hi

I own an Hp 15-an002nv notebook

CPU intel core i5-6200u
GPU Nvidia geforce 940m/intel HD graphics 520
Hard drive samsung 860 evo 250 GB (i have changed from the original)
Ram 8 GB
Windows 10
BIOS version F.74

I am really pleased with my notebook, but i want to disable the intel graphics for various reasons and make the nvidia gpu my primary one, and use it as if the notebook was manufactured without the iGPU .
I have tried almost everything i have read online, from disabling the graphics from Device Manager, to changing the 3D settings in Nvidia control panel. Also i cannot disable the gpu from the bios since there is no advanced tab for some reason.

I would really appreciate any help

Thanks in advance
 
For some things you just can't turn off the integrated graphics. It usually leads to problems when you try. You can, however, set the GPU to be used for most things.


Here's the steps on how to set it to default.

1. Open the "Nvidia Control Panel".
2. Select "Manage 3D Settings" under 3D Settings.
3. Click on the "Program Settings" tab and select the program you want to choose a graphics card for from the drop down list.
4. Now select "preferred graphics processor" in the drop down list. (You can see what the automatic option is listed as global setting) If you want to use the dedicated graphics card, select High-performance Nvidia processor.

Once it is running on the right one, test the system again and see if the problem persists.
