Most laptop with integrated intel and nvidia graphic card use nvidia optimus it's built into the driver, basically it uses the Intel graphics and when needed nvidia graphics kick in.

I would check with your laptop manufacturer, ask if way to use Nvidia 100%, their support would have the right answer.

...could require a general BIOS update or a GPU update, and they are the likely keepers of those, also.
If the case, ask them to kindly walk you through it.
