Lenovo ideapad Y580. It has an i7 3610qm processor, 8gb of ram, and a geforce gtx 660m graphics card - as well as a Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics card. I've downloaded a couple games and I going to play Skyrim and it would not recognize my Nvidia card. So I followed some advice on youtube and was told to disable my Intel HD 4000 from the Computer properties and immediately my screen goes black. I restart my computer and everything is black but there is sound. I am panicking right now. How can I fix this? :cry: 

And all of this is ironic because my laptop was unplugged and that was the problem all along. :fou:

But you know that you can select the game from Nvidia control panel and then check GTX 660m for that game so whenever you run that exe, GTX 660m will be used..
