Y570 Nvidia 555M problem

2014-01-03, 5:13 AM


I have an Y570 Nvidia 555M with windows 8.1.

When i try to play any games, my GPU video card don't work, instead it operates the CPU video card. I tried put preferences at the Nvidia control Panel but it still not working. I tried to unistall and install all the drivers of the bios and the video card but it still not working. Someone can help me?

When i play the game the GPU activity still says "NONE".

Please help.

It's normal. I get the "NONE" activity too when I'm not actually in the gameplay. However, if you're in the game map and actually playing. Just try to lauch a game with bots. Wait until you're in the spawn location then ALT-TAB to desktop. The Nvidia GPU Activity should say LOL app is usin the GPU like in the picture below:




Hope this clears up your issue.
