Z570 - Graphics cards issue (Unable to play heavy graphic games. Nvidia Card)


Z570 with Nvidia Graphic card is having problem when playing high graphic games. The Nvidia graphic card is not detected and it is only using the Intel Graphic card.


Tried reinstalling the graphic card driver however problem persist.


  1. Ensure you have Lenovo Energy Management installed
  2. Ensure the Nvidia / Intel drivers have been installed. (Intel here / Nvidia here)
  3. Once that is done, ensure that the Z570 has been set to High performance mode in Lenovo Energy Management.
  4. Look infront of the laptop (left side) and ensure that the switch's LED is litted. If it is not, push the switch to the right and you will get a prompt on the task bar that Nvidia is active.

    Screenshot below is taken from a V570 however it works the same as the Z570
