Issues with NVIDIA Optimus


May 22, 2010
I have an ASUS gaming laptop given to me by my parents. It has an NVIDIA 870M built in.

For some reason, I cannot get the god damned NVIDIA Optimus to enable the 870M. Even when I'm running a game, I get shit framerate as a result of it not being enabled.

I tried going into NVIDIA Control Panel as other fixes suggest, but I cannot even get the NVIDIA Control Panel to open because I get a message that I am not using a display attached a NVIDIA GPU.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you.
