My windows only reads Intel Graphic Card Family instead of nvidia 840M

Hello everyone,
I just bought new laptop for gaming but i found that my laptop reads the graphic card of intel family not nvidia and i don't know why...

I tried to disable it from the device manager but nothing happen and when i check it again it was unreadable too and it changed from Intel Graphic Family --> unknown device and the size from 1792MB --> 259MB

Laptop info:
Type: Dell [NOT TOUCH SCREEN]
RAM: 8GB
CPU: Core i7
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 840M
HD: 1TB

also it run many new games like Far Cry 4, alien isolation in high performance but i need to know if i can make it better...

Thank you guys for your time.

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums ... Looks as if you have switchable Graphics ...

As you have Disabled the Intel GPU ... You will need to Re-Install the Driver ..


To achieve this go to the Dell Website and Download the Driver ...

Thank you for your reply...

I already install the latest drives for my product in dell support driver center, so do you mean that i have to uninstall all my graphic card drives and disable intel graphic card family and re-install nvidia drives again ?

The problem is that my windows read the graphic card:
Chip Type: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family

and i got nvidia Gefocre 840M but my windows can't read it and i want to make it read it instead of the Intel(R)

it show in the device manager but my laptop not using it [even I installed every single drive for it from dell derives center]

I tried to disable the intel(R) and enabled only nvidia but it didn't work and graphics devise was unknown for the windows so, i enabled the intel(R) again and windows read it successfully without any problems.
