My laptop refuses to use Nvidia GPU and uses integrated instead. I've tried installing drivers, forcing games to play with dedicated to no avail. When I try to force all games to run on dedicated through Nvidia control panel it give me "Error Unable to apply settings to your system." Any Ideas?
Happened after I factory reset my laptop. When I did it asked me something about the bios and I wiped it I think. But my bios options are very basic, I have no option for display.

GTX 1050
Intel i5-7300hq
8GB ram

Which laptop brand and model is it?

Install all drivers from the manufacturer´s support homepage. Installing e.g. nvidia.com drivers can lead to such problem.

Update the BIOS if possible

Update the operating system
