This question came from our site for passionate videogamers on all platforms.

Is your computer switching to the integrated graphics card, or is a game? If it's a game, which one? Does more than one game do it? –  fbueckert Aug 10 '13 at 20:42
Yep all games :) I'ts my computer. Every time i unplug my "battery charger" and i auto detect in a game, it changes all the settings to low. –  Notarmaso Aug 10 '13 at 21:30
So, the issue is, how to set your laptop to use power as if it is plugged in all the time, regardless of whether or not it actually is. –  Bon Gart Aug 10 '13 at 22:09

1 Answer 1

I got a similar Laptop so solution will hopefully be the same

2 thing need to be changed


Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.

Here change when not plugged in to performance


Open NVIDIA control panel (Make sure your drivers are up to date), click Manage 3D settings, Power management mode, Prefer maximum performance


This pretty much disabled my integrated card.

If this fails jump in device manager and disabled the integrated card(Results less then guaranteed - Perform at own risk)
