    Exclamation Graphic card not working gl553vd gtx 1050

    Hello,

    Just today my graphic card suddenly broke without any warning or anything.

    I try to open up games and I get DirectX errors, while others open but lag horribly to the point that the integrated card work even better.

    The card is completely useless right now, I visited the Nvidia panel and looks like it also changed my games automatically from NVIDIA's card to the integrated probably because its not working. But i changed it back but of no use.

    What can I do??? Is it hardware issue or what? My laptop is barely 1 year old.

    I visited the RoG drivers support site and the newest driver for the card was from September 2018 and its the one that i am currently using.

    Please help someone. Anyone else facing a similar issue?

    You might have to do RMA your laptop if you still have your warranty, back up all your data and do a fresh install before you do.

    Is it any possible that a Win10 update can mess up with the graphic card or the fans of the laptop?

    @mikeyav yes its definitely, possible that windows 10 update can mess up the gpu setttings on optimus technology.
    I would recommend uninstalling the Gpu driver using DDU. (display driver uninstaller program).
    Reinstall graphics drivers in safemode and check.
    I would even recommend a clean reset of windows 10.
    Its unlikely that a new 1050 card can die just like that.
