laptop having two different video card

hello guys my asus laptop is working fine for a while but after a few screens then reboot i found out my device manager displays two video card the additional Intel (R) HD Graphics and my original Nvidia GT 335M and i think my computer is currently using the intel graphics card coz my monitor shows that particular video card and my game is incredibly slow

is there any way to shift my video card back to the original nvidia video card?? (P.S. I tried disabling the Intel video card and the screen went black and tried removing and it reinstalls after reboot) Thank you guys.

Go to Device Manager and check under "Display Adapters" and see if your nVidia card is enabled under the "Driver" tab.

Next thing I'd check is the Power Options, and you can access this by right clicking on the battery Icon in the bottom left tray. I'd see if that is on High Performance setting or Balanced. I would set it at High Performance to see if it changes it.

Your laptop has 2 GPUs, and swaps between them to save power.

Look up your laptops documentation to see if there is a way to manually set it. Check on the settings DarkScorpion mentioned.

Would it be smart to enable the nVIDIA one and dissable the Intel one? I have the same problem you see and I was wondering the same thing....

It is unneeded, but possible.

That's true, it isn't needed, it won't fix any problems. The only thing it would do is make boot a few seconds quicker since that service isn't needed to be loaded.
