Hi krypton

 

Do you have any issue when using the NVIDIA driver Lenovo provide? If you need more performance, you could first install the latest NVIDIA driver from Lenovo, then install the newer driver from NVIDIA site.

 

Have a nice day! :smileytongue::smileyhappy::smileyvery-happy:

Yes there is one issue Smiley Sad

If I install the latest nVIDIA Drivers, then I cannot tell the programs which graphics chipset to use.

For example, if you go to manage 3D settings, then go to Windows Media Player or Media Player Classic, the option to select the nVIDIA Graphics is greyed out and is locked on the Intel Graphics HD chipset. At least that's how it is in my case

Re: nvidia 296.10 whql driver latest

Well you have a point there, but don't you think that using the LAV (CUVID) decoder which uses the nVIDIA chipset to decode the videos would be better/

 

I noticed that when I use LAV/CUVID, when I am moving between diff. parts of the movie, the scene shifts to the next part I moved to almost instanltly but when I used the HD Graphics it takes some time to do it

 

what do you think?
