Windows 7: Intel or Nvidia?

Intel or Nvidia?

Hi all, another little bug for the gurus.
As per my specs, I've got an intel 4790 CPU with onboard 4600 graphics and an Nvidia GTX760 card with latest driver installed. I just tried to open the nvidia control panel and get the attached message. In device manager both show up in "display adapter". Nvidia is set to run on startup in msconfig and to automatic and running in services.msc. I disabled intel through services.msc. but no difference. Do the intel graphics run alongside nvidia? I know I'm dumb with computers but it seems strange I can't open the nvidia interface.

Glad you sorted it, don't feel bad. I did the same thing once. I was convinced the card was bad and then noticed the cable
