Geforce GT 640m has been overtaken by Intel HD 4000. Could use some advice.

Hey There.

So my fps in games dropped really sudden for 5 days ago, so I thought that I might had to update my graphic card. That didn't help, so then I just formatted my pc (since it had been along time since I did that). However that didn't help either. I have an Aspire 3-571g btw.

So I ran a little test where I deactivated my integrated intel card to force the Geforce card to work, however that resulted in after my restart that I could play any games at all.

It would be lovely if somebody had a fix for this, as I said before I have updated my graphic card so it's not that.

Best Regards and thanks in advance.

    Hey, I already did that and it didn't work :/ Got anymore suggestions?
  3. It's weird cause when I'm using MSI Afterburner the GPU goes up when I'm playing a game, but still low fps on 8-11... It would be wonderfull if somebody had a fix.

    If you rightclick on a game icon , properties ->Run with graphics processor-> High Performance NVIDIA processor
    (as i remember , dont want to turn on mine now)
    What happens ?
  5. Can't see anywhere in the properties where the "Run with graphics processor" is. Some assistance would be appreciated :)

    Remove the driver of GT 640M and from the laptop at all - you ll be asked . Restart . Install the default driver from the DVD you ve got.
