Y700-34ISH can't enable Intel HD Graphics

2017-02-06, 21:19 PM

I'm trying to enable the HD graphics so that I can use Intel Quick Sync to transcode video for plex but I can't find any way to do that.

 

It's not available in my device manager.  I don't have any graphics options in the BIOS.  When I try to install updated drivers it says that they don't meet the requirements to run on this machine.

 

I'm out of ideas.

There is no BIOS option to disable the discrete video card, so if you must use the onboard HD Graphics, you will have to remove your systems discrete Nvidia card, plug your monitor into the VGA or DVI port mounted on the system board, and boot up to allow the onboard graphics adapter to be automatically detected.    Once you have completed your transcoding, put your Nvidia card back in place to return to using the faster Nvidia card.  

 

On laptops the two are sometimes both utilized to conserve battery power (the onboard uses less juice), but on a desktop systems that is not an issue, so the onboard graphics are usually disabled automatically by the BIOS if a discrete video card is present.

 

Good Luck,

I just tried that and it never detected the on board graphics.   I just had a blank monitor.
