Monitor managed by integrated Intel HD graphic and not by NVIDIA card

Hi,

I've a new SAMSUNG laptop (Intel core i5 processor) running Win 7.

Device Manager shows that exist a (core i5) integrated graphic card (Intel HD graphics family) and a NVIDIA GT 520MX card.

It shows the laptop monitor (Generic PnP monitor) managed by Intel HD graphics family and not by NVIDIA GT 520MX...I tried to connect an external LCD monitor and same behaviour (also the new attached monitor is shown under Intel HD graphic...)

It seems NVIDIA card is not used at all....Why ?

Thanks.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

That is normal with a laptop that has integrated graphics and a nvidia card, the nvidia card will kick in when it is needed.
