Chrome stops using the NVIDIA GPU while it is open.

Every time I run Chrome on the discrete NVIDIA GPU, after a while it simply gets removed from the NVIDIA GPU Activity (in the taskbar) meanwhile the NVIDIA GPU shows up on device manager as working properly. When this happened I also tried openning a video game which said that My graphics card isn't supported. This problem gets solved by disabling and reenabling the NVIDIA GPU in device manager. Did anyone else experience a similar thing? What would you guys suggest?

Sounds like a software issue. I can't really go into details since I don't have your laptop infront of me, but reinstalling Windows will probably solve the issue.

Yes, it is.
Gonna try using the driver provided in the Lenovo webpage to see if it holds up.
