Hello everyone, I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y570, and I HAD to use Combo fix a couple of nights ago because a horrible Trojan broke through my laptop. All was well, I removed it with ease, my Computer works faster than ever. However,I cannot switch my Graphics card? It only goes to the Laptops original Graphics Card. I have NVIDIA, and I can activate the control panel and everything, but it does not activate for my Video games like Skyrim, WoW, Diablo, and League of Legends. It works with my browsers, being able to watch videos in HD.
I have gone into the Control panel of NVIDIA, focusing ALL of the High Performance straight to my games, nothing, even Globally. NVIDIA is completely out of the options when my game setting asks for "Graphics Card settings," it just goes to Intel®HD Graphics Family, originally it gave me 2 options but the other is non-existent.
Help Me?
-I have updated the NVIDIA Card as well, just today

Uninstall...the MIA graphics card...run the chkdsk /r command.

Reboot the system and see if the Intel graphics are functioning properly.

Turn power off, reinstall nVidia card...see if problem persists.
