Hi, I have a Toshiba TUF gaming with GTX 1650 and when i plug in an external monitor via HDMI the GTX card works fine.

But when i run without an external monitor it only uses the Intel gxf card and i can't open the nvidia control panel, it simply says 'you are not using a display attached to an nvidia adapter'

any ideas how to make it use the GTX when i boot without a external monitor?

thanks
