    Greetings Tech Gurus.

    I have received a Gaming PC for Christmas with the following specs:
    • INTEL Kaby Lake i5 7600K 3.8Ghz/4.2Ghz Turbo
    • 16GB DDR4 2133Mhz Crucial
    • 240GB SSD - 1TB Sata3 HDD -
    • NVIDIA GTX1060 6GB
    • ASUS PRIME B250M-A
    These specs are moderately good, but when running a game such as GTA V, I am getting 30-40fps on the lowest settings, I checked out this video --> he has the same specs but lower ram and he is running smoothly while recording on high specs.

    This led to me investigating,

    I have two graphics cards on my systems as I found out in Device Manager - Display Adapters, the graphics cards are: Intel(R) HD Graphics 630 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.

    I would like help in setting my NVIDIA graphics card as the default one, I have some experience, but a tutorial would be very helpful and much appreciated.

    I'm using the ASUS BIOS and have access to it.

    Thank you very much,
    Chris J.

    Usually you can boot into Safe mode and Disable the Integrated GPU in Device Manger. Let us know if you need more details

    Thanks, I found the problem out, my HDMI cable was not plugged into the graphics card socket on the back, this has fixed it now, thanks for attempting, the effort is appreciated!
