And when this happeneds, when i right click on the desktop for the graphics, the Nvidia graphics does not pop up. In addition when this happens it can take up to 10 tries to get it to boot up. I have the dual GT 750M. so i have the sli. Another problem is that when i do detect a graphics card it is often just one card, so i cant utilize the second one at all. If you can help me through this situation i will greaatly appreciate it. THANKS!!

Sounds like a defective gpu. Have you tried reinstalling your graphics drivers? Also check for bios update.
