Hi, I have an HP Pavilion 15 laptop with the Core i7-7700HQ and a GTX 1050. When I use the laptop, it switches between the HD 630 and GTX 1050 with no problems as I have set it with the NVIDIA Control Panel. However, when I connect the laptop to an external display via the HDMI Port, I can only ever use the GTX 1050, which is fine, but drains battery a lot more. So is it actually possible to use both? If so, how can I do it? Thanks guys
