Hello, i didn't find switchable GPU option in my bios and i want to turn it off to use my new graphic card with GPU adapter . can you help me please and thanks . sorry for my bad English :)
 
You shouldn't need to turn off the integrated graphics to use the other GPU, you should only need to change it settings in Windows. Without knowing which GPU you have (the computer you list isn't the full model so I could not look up the specs).

If it is a Nvidia GPU, try option 1. If it is AMD GPU, try option 2.

Option 1...

Try this...

A. Uninstall, and then reinstall, the latest graphics card driver.
B. Make sure that your Nvidia graphics card is set as the default graphics card.

Here's the steps on how to set it to default.

  1. Open the "Nvidia Control Panel".
  2. Select "Manage 3D Settings" under 3D Settings.
  3. Click on the "Program Settings" tab and select the program you want to choose a graphics card for from the drop down list.
  4. Now select "preferred graphics processor" in the drop down list. (You can see what the automatic option is listed as global setting) If you want to use the dedicated graphics card, select High-performance Nvidia processor.
Once it is running on the right one, test the system again and see if the problem persists.


Option 2...

Try the following...

A. Uninstall, and then reinstall, the latest graphics card driver.
B. Make sure that your AMD graphics card is set as the default graphics card.

Here's the steps on how to set it to default.

  1. Open the "Control Center".
  2. Select "Manage 3D Settings" under 3D Settings.
  3. Click on the "Program Settings" tab and select the program you want to choose a graphics card for from the drop down list.
  4. Now select "preferred graphics processor" in the drop down list. (You can see what the automatic option is listed as global setting) If you want to use the dedicated graphics card, select High-performance AMD processor.
Once it is running on the right one, test the system again and see if the problem persists.


For ATI/AMD graphics cards the process varies.

You may need to open graphics then PowerPlay and set plugged in and/or battery to maximize performance.

You can also try going to graphics then 3D and move the slider to performance. Your computer may also have a switchable graphics tab where you can change the settings for individual programs.

You won't see the option in the BIOS because your laptop did not come with the video card on the motherboard. If the card is not seen properly contact the vendor of the external adapter support. You installed or tried to install the drivers for the 1050 correct? You have power running to it?
