Hi Geekstogo,


I am having a trouble playing my game TERA because it constantly freezes who knows what reason.
My PS1 emulator does the same thing. I have Nvidia geoforce gtx 675M 4g and built in Intel® HD Graphics 4000.

Apparently on my display setting, I dont see the Nvidia, only the HD one. I don't know how am I gonna make my Nvidia as a primary gpu.
Pls help me!!!

Heres my system info.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1)
Intel® Core™ i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHZ, 2401 Mhz, 4 Core(s). 8 Logical Threads

Hello jhey0214

Do you not have a user manual that explains how to use the switchable graphics facility.

Please provide the brand and model name or number for the computer so that we can do some research.

Hi sorry for the late reply, I checked the manual and it didn't say it on there how to set the primary display.

My laptop is called Valkyrie CZ-17 from iBuypower.com
If you could help me try to figure out how to put Nvidia as my main graphic instead of Intel HD 4000 would be much appreciated! :)

heres my system info and the display hardware.

Apologies for the late reply.

Have you checked in the BIOS that Switchable Graphics is enabled.
Do you have an Nvidea icon on your taskbar.

Run the Nvidea tool checker http://www.overclock...us-tool-checker

Yeah I did all that, Nvidia GPu is on and the program has a choice of running it with nvidia now but still freezes. Its just the TERA gam not my other games apparently.
Maybe i have to reinstall the game cus it must be the client.

Not being a gamer I am not familiar with TERA I`m afraid.

Have you checked the sites Q&As https://tera-answers...osts/7a3c7375d3
