I found the problem...Operator Error.
In BIOS, when I disable Optimus, only NVidia is available to the system. When I enable Optimus, NVidia and Intel Integrated Graphics are available to the system. This makes sense because Optimus switches between the two automatically to find the best fit for what ever application is running...Heavy games, or everyday applications.
So the problem is solved...either uncheck or check the Optimus box in BIOS under Video, depending if you wish to only run discrete graphics, or have both discrete and integrated available.
Thanks for all that helped
