im sorry for not being very specific in previous posts. when i said i changed all settings i meant i did evey thing/solution/workaround i found on internet, including propably evey answer i found on ur forum considering this topic. i found only 3 or 4 original, rest was the same over and over again even when it didint help almost anyone. also solution you send me i already did before even starting to search the web in this topic. in sum it doesnt work. please give it another try. also i really pretty please just dont copy paste me another one of your useless solutions, spare a moment of your time to actually reflect on my problem.

also this problem is very very often with your brand. you really should make it more simple like, i dont know... maybe, ANY OTHER LAPTOP BRAND? why you just wont people PERMAMNTLY chose which card they want to use?

(also also you have propably simplest and single least useful bios i have seen in my entire life)
