    GPU in Device Manage, but not in game

    Maybe this should be moved because it has more to do with my GPU. My main GPU appears in Device Manager, but when I play games they don't use/find my main GPU.

    Hey, my computer got stuck going into sleep mode. I seem to have lost a podcast file, but, otherwise, things seems to be okay. My main problem is now my games are running slower (same settings). I think, the games are using the MoBo's integrated graphics, but I don't know how to check if that's the case. I checked both Display Adapters and Windows tells me they are working properly.
    EDIT: I am on the setup menu of a game and my GPU isn't an option. Seems like a problem.

    It would help a lot if you posted system specs, especially needed for gaming issues. See my system specs to get an idea of what we need.
