Re: Auto Cad 2012 on Z570, i5, 6gb Ram, 2 Gb Nvidia graphic card

Hello amir_djeddi and welcome to community,


Your laptop comes with switchable graphics.

Be default it is Intel graphic driver which is in use, kindly switch on GPU switch which is available in front view of the laptop.


To make the program work on Nvidia graphic card you need to right click on desktop select configure switchable graphic and add Autocad program


After this when ever you will open the Autocad it will use Nvidia graphic card.


Best Regards,
