I purchased an HP Envy.  It has an i7 quad core CPU plus the Intel HD 4600 graphics but I also got the Nvidia GTX 950M dedicated graphics that I wanted.  The problem is when I run the WIndows 7 experience my graphics gives me a 5.2 reading which is not good.  When I go to the detailed peformance it shows only the HD 4600 for graphics and not the Nvidia 950.  What gives?

Try looking through your Nvidia settings and see if there is a setting to switch the gpu's. AMD has something similar to this. Is catalyst installed still?


Could be that your pc needs a bios update.

Right click on a empty space on the desktop.  A menu will open which has the option to Configure Switchable Graphics, select this and switch to the NVIDIA graphics.


Another option would be to open the Device Manager, double click on Display Adapter and disable the integrated graphics.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
