Hi, so I have had my MSI gt70 2oc laptop for a couple months now and I recently wanted to set up dual monitors. My laptop has a gtx 770m gpu in it with a 4th gen i7. When I set up the dual screens my TV(second screen) uses my 770m while my laptop uses the integrated graphics. When i unplug the tv or second screen i realize that my monitor is always displayed with the integrated graphics and wont let me switch to the GPU.How can I make it so my GPU uses both screen? I went into bios to try and disable my integrated graphics but couldn't find the option. Also, I checked out directx to see if it was using my gpu and it wasnt. So my gpu is not be used by everything which I want it to. In the Nvidia Control Panel I set it so my GPU should be used by everything but it still isn't working. Please help!

The driver will automatically switch from Intel to Nvidia under load.

Try playing a demanding game and check which one its using, it switches back and forth from integrated and dedicated to save power.

Ok thanks that solved that problem. So when I run something like bf4 my laptop will start to use the gpu to display?
I made sure the gpu was being used when I tried out a game so I am using it.
