500S-14ISK GeForce 940M is not detected



got a problem with my Nvidia graphics card in my Lenovo 500S-14ISK. The graphics card is correctly installed, but I can not run Nvidia Control Panel - it just says there's no display attached to my NVIDIA GPU. Thus I can not use it at all in any programs. Right-clicking exe's also won't give the usual option to run it with NVIDIA chip.


I have already uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. No change. What can I do?

Check the motherboard if the GPU is seated properly into the motherboard if it's not built in.


Also, recommend contacting Lenovo service centres and applying the normal phone techniques to get it replaced promptly.
