    I just got a new laptop with integrated graphics and a Nvidia 940mx and when I open and download games and stuff, they work fine, but occasionally, for no reason that I can discern, my laptop changes something and games like tf2 and emulators like dolphin and ppsspp freeze and stop working, other games in my library still work, but only a select handful of games and apps will stop working

    I have gotten this temporarily fixed by resetting windows 10 but then like a week later it'll come back and I have to reset windows again

    does anybody know whats going on and if there's any better way to fix this

    edit: I also found that my Nvidia control panel is missing, is this related or a separate issue
