Games running with Integrated Graphics Card instead of Dedicated one Z50-70

I got a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 Laptop, with all the drivers up-to-date (including beta drivers).

The laptop features an Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 video card and a NVidia GeForce 840M.

The trick is that everytime I'm playing a game that is a bit older (not recognized by NVidia GeForce Experience, it runs with the Integrated Graphics card). And yes, I've tried to set to run globally with the dedicated card.

Well usually if the game is not demanding enough, the laptop will use the integrated GPU.

 

However, having said that you may need to force each such game/application to run on discrete GPU from the NVIDIA Control Panel > Program settings (not the Global settings)

After that, click Apply and close the Control Panel.
