Alright, I have an Asus G46VW-BSI5N06. I've had it for several months, but only now, thanks to Rome: Total War 2's graphics options menu informing me of which graphics card I was using, did I realize it was using the Intel HD 4000 (I believe inbuilt, correct?) rather than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M (came with the computer). Seeing as the Nvidia card was a good deal better, I wanted it to be using that rather than the Intel one, so I went into device manager and disabled the Intel card, thinking that it must be overriding the Nvidia one, since both were listed as enabled. However, no luck. After doing that, instead of using the Nvidia card, it began using the basic Microsoft renderer instead. Any idea what the problem is? Do I have to do something in bios, and if so can somebody offer me steps on what to do?
