Hey there everyone,


I have a Lenovo Y50 and as stated in the title, it simply refuses to use the NVidia 860m graphics card. Both the NVidia and the integrated graphics have the latest drivers installed. If I go into the NVidia control panel and try to switch one of my programs (Like Battlefield 4) to the NVidia card it simply switches back as soon as I open the program. In the BIOS it only has to option to choose either "switchable" or "integrated" graphics so I can't choose to run my laptop with the NVidia card alone. 


Here is the Speccy snapshot for my computer specs. 




Thanks for your time!
