Hi guys,

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm new to gaming laptops and dedicated GPUs. I have a GL552vw with a 960m. Apparently the laptop also runs on a intel card, which I think is built in. However, I noticed when browsing the web that the intel card frequently crashes. Is it possible to just run off the 960m? I don't understand why it runs on the intel card if it comes with a dedicated GPU.

The G752 doesn't run discreet graphics like the GL552

discreet graphics is more of a "battery saver" feature than anything else.

1st, there are someting wrong there, intel card is not that bad, go fix it 1st
then open Nvidia control panel, you may assign the 960m to run certain programs as you wish

"go fix it" is not very helpful. Maybe you can be a little more specific?

All my drivers are up to date with a few exceptions where I purposefully had to roll them back due to BSOD errors.
