i did hwinfo/speccy, it only detects the intel HD graphics card? I thought it has a 1gb dedicated? I just installed the drivers for it, how the hell do I activate it so it can run my games? oblivion doesn't detect any hardware. wtf
Hello Alpha Moth;
Your Acer 5742g probably has Optiums technology? http://www.nvidia.com/object/optimus_technology.html
What that does is shut down your GT 420M and uses just the Intel HD Graphics unless the system gets a heavier load on the GPU - like 3D gaming.
How about starting up a game and then running HDInfo or Speccy?
