Nvidia GeForce GT730M Graphic Card No longer Detected on Lenovo Ideapad U530 Touch Laptop

I have an Ideapad U530 Touch running windows 8.1. I accidentially disabled the Nvidia GeForce GT730M graphics card and no I cannot get it back. When I initially disabled like an idiot I lost most video capabilities as the only thing I saw was a very dark screen. I rebooted and the computer would just load to a blue screen. I was able to get into BIOS and change to UMA only which allowed me to at least get back on the computer. However, now the Nvidia card is not being detected as being on the computer. Is there a way to re-enable it? The display is now running on the Intel set up but it is very fuzzy and I would prefer to have it back running like it used to.

Hi adlb1300,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


Switching to UMA will disable it physically leaving it undetected by the computer.

   Switch it back to Switchable or auto then I suggest you perform a Factory recovery to have the proper dirver on it.

Afte switching it back to Switchable in BIOS Turn the system OFF and press the Onekey Recovery Button to boot into recovery.
