I always played in my dedicated graphics without any problem, someday in the past, my games just had a black screen, and I couldn't play, my geforce experice didn't work or at least opened(and still the same), and I couldn't update my drivers. I recently updated my drivers manually and all my games worked again :) But I tried to change the resolution of ONE SINGLE GAME, and they stopped working again -_- <(i am an idiot).

Yes i know, there is alot of others posts talking about the same thing (Example: http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/id-1988136/laptop-dedicated-gpu.html), but there wasn't anything that did help me.

And I've heard in another post (Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/app/211420/discussions/0/458604254424261804/#c458604254424888793) that I need to put the game in the integrated graphics option, change the resolution and then go back to high performance. It worked!!! or at least 50% of it. I did put in integrated GPU and change the resolution, but it was already in 1366x768 (and i changed the graphics to low), and when I came back with dedicated GPU it still didn't work.

The thing is that some games I play don't work (black screen), and when I put them on Integrated Graphics it works, but i want my dedicated working.
So, if someone knows how to fix it, please write.

Here are some specifications of my laptop:
NVIDIA GeForce 820M
NVIDIA Driver version: 364.51
8GB RAM
2GB Graphic card
1TB Hard Disk
1366x768 Screen
Windows 10 Home Single Language x64
Intel Core i5-4210U CPU - 1.70GHz

Hi,

Please do try doing a clean install of the graphics card driver.
- Go to Device Manager and uninstall the Nvidia graphics driver.
- Next is to open Programs and Features then uninstall anything related to Nvidia.
- Once done, download and install the latest driver.
- Here's the link: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
- Reboot your laptop once the latest driver has been installed.
- After the reboot do make Nvidia as the default GPU.

you know fron that outher guys post and that link I gave him where I ststed how it looks like there all using laptops ??

heres my guess

laptops don't have good cooling to start then you use it to pound games out with way more then normal everyday use so is it that maybe the heat caught up with things and the card just gave it up and for the most part got damaged ??

most time when all else fails and the cards don't take a driver its uasuly due to they got damaged or failing ??

??? you can only do what you can and move on to something else if everything fails to resolve .. only you know far you want to fight it

then theres no guarantee a new card will work any better and that's if you are able to replace the card in a laptop maybe hard soldered in place and not easy replaceable with out sending back to the manufacture ??
