    ASUS K56C Disable NVIDIA GPU


    Hey guys, im just wondering on how i can disable the integrated NVIDIA 635M GPU on my ASUS K56C. I want to do so because i am using an eGPU Adapter on my laptop, and would be better off by disabling it. Regards, -Yannic

    Also, i should be more clear. By disabling i mean like in the BIOS making it so it goes for Intergrated Graphics and not the NVIDIA GPU. The problem is, disabling it in the Windows Device Manager, and then installing the NVIDIA Driver for the GTX 970 makes the 635M enable itself again after reboot. Trying then to disable it again, rebooting and then opening the NVIDIA Control Panel, i get the error that there is no NVIDIA GPU connected, however when i go into the Device Manager, it says that the GTX 970 is connected and there is no black-yellow exclamation mark (or Warning) symbol to tell me that there is a problem. What do i do now?

    Wait, nevermind that last part, i figured it out. You have to also enable your monitor for it to say that the NVIDIA Control Panel has a Monitor connected to the GPU.
