It has been a while since I was gaming on this laptop, and I have noticed that it is the intel integrated graphics that are running for games, instead of the Nvidia Geforce 745m. On device manager the system has put up an error 43, and I have been troubleshooting for days now so would really appreciate any help.
I have tried DDU and doing a fresh reinstall of the Nvidia drivers (Game ready 397.93 version), doing clean installs and launching in safe mode etc.
I have even reset the PC, and from a fresh install of windows device manager was still listing the GPU as not working.
I have seen online that some people say a BIOS update is sometimes needed, but I see that Novatech don’t publish the BIOS updates, so my first request is am I able to have it updated?
My second request is what would you now recommend? Everything else is working fine, so it would be disappointing if the GPU was fried or something, how can I tell? But I would of course like to be able to continue gaming.
