so why is it guys? i mean i had to choose which graphic i am supposed to use right?

after hours of googling lots of people said that disabling intel drivers is the only way to make the nvidia runs along the whole time. i just want to make my FPS at game higher. so that's why i tried to disabled it. any suggestion? if i uninstall the intel hd driver completely and i used only nvidia driver, will it be safe also for my computer?

ADDITION: my nvidia geforce doesn't came up as a choice to showed up on screen resolution , seems like my nvidia has something that isn't correct. also with 15 FPS on playing counter strike even though my processor is i7 with 8gb ram. any ideas with this?

any reply would be appreciated :)

You should not need to uninstall your integrated graphics chipset driver.

Your Graphics Card's drivers will install themselves in such a way that they take priority over your integrated motherboard-based or CPU-based graphics chipset. In fact, most motherboards prioritise the PCIe x16 slot over any integrated chipsets whenever the correct drivers are present.

Apart from an extreme case of severe corruption or the presence of viruses there isn't any real reason you'd want to uninstall the drivers for what is, essentially, a good set of backup drivers in the event your GPU fails or your system is forced to boot into Safe Mode.

My advice is reinstall the integrated graphics drivers. Your PC will always use a GPU Driver before the integrated driver anyway, so it won't ever cause slowdown.

You can download and install the Nvidia GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) drivers from www.nvidia.com and following the 'Drivers' link at the top of the screen. The website will offer you a range of options to determine the correct drivers to download and install. Once downloaded, install the drivers in the same manner as you would any other windows program.

I would recommend you do not delete the Integrated Graphics Chipset drivers your motherboard is using. Under functional circumstances, when your computer is using your Graphics Card and not the Integrated Graphics Chipset, these drivers will not interfere with any performance aspect of your games.

To address your first post: If your Nvidia Drivers aren't installed your PC will not use your Graphics Card, that could explain why your FPS in Counter Strike is so low. Your PC is either using your Integrated Graphics Chipset or, worse, your CPU to render Counter Strike's visual aspects. This uses up a lot of CPU time and uses your computer's on-board RAM rather than your GPU's dedicated graphical RAM. Reinstall your Graphics Card's drivers to solve this problem.
