Hi, I've just bought new 21:9 (3440x1440) monitor. I've connected it to my computer and it turned out I neither can choose 3440x1440 nor 2560x1080. I have Intel(R) HD Graphics 530 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M graphic cards. The monitor works with the Intel integrated graphics. Is there a way to overcome the problem, like maybe switching the monitor to the NVIDIA card?

Hi, DonDon_Lenovo, thank you for your reply!
The drivers are installed successfully.
I can't, however, access the second link (http://support.lenovo.com/solutions/HT076090) - the page is not found.

What exactly do you want me to do? Go to NVIDIA Control Panel and choose Preferred graphics processor? If so, should I pick Auto-select, High-performance NVIDIA processor, or Integrated graphics?

Sorry for the confusion, in BIOS > Graphic Device keep it Discrete, system will choose graphic controller according to the user scenario.
