Lenovo y580 not detecting Nvidia graphics card

2014-03-19, 19:14 PM

I have had an y580 for about a year now and recently tried playing a game and noticed it ran terribly so I investigated my system and noticed it was using the intel card instead of the nvidia one. So i went to the Nvidia control panel and it doesnt allow me to access it saying "Nvidia card not detected" 

 

In device manager it doesnt show up.

GPU-z doesnt find the card.

 

Basically my computer thinks that this card isnt there.

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi
Try this-
Remove the battery and ac adapter and press and hold the power button for 30-40 seconds. It may help though it hasn't turned out to be a permanent solution in some cases.
And btw which os are you using?

Windows 8.1 and that doesnt seem to have helped, assuming I did it correctly.
