Thinkpad W541, you are not currently using a display attached to an nvidia gpu

2017-08-24, 1:46 AM

Hello, I have thinkpad W541 that has a nvidia quadro K2100M. I've had the laptop for a while but I've never used anything graphically demanding on it until recently, but since I have, I've realized its only ever using the intel HD graphics 4600 and not the K2100M. I've tried to go into the nvidia control panel to see if I could tell it to use the K2100M like I have seen suggested in some other posts but whenever I click on nvidia control panel I get an error message that reads


"NVIDIA Display settings are not available.

You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU."


I've tried updating both drivers but that didn't fix the issue. Any suggestions? Thanks.
