T430s Graphics issue

2017-12-30, 3:06 AM

Ok, How do I get this T430s to recognise ONLY the nVidia graphics? I have it set to nVidia only in the BIOS, However, this thing INSISTS on using the pathetic HD4000 graphics when trying to play a game. This was easy to do for the T420. Why wont this work for the T430s?

 

What I've done:

Install ONLY the nVidia graphics drivers.... I still wants to use the "generic" VGA driver for everything.

It forces me to use the nVidia panel to list games for use with the nVidia graphics. This doesn't always work.

 

Is there a fix for this nightmare?
