Force External GPU?
#1
After seeing me play PCSX2 on my lame 1.4GHz i3 (2nd gen) setup, my little bro decided to try it on his comp.
His comp has a 2.3GHz i5 (1st gen) CPU and an nVidia GT 520M, but PCSX2 defaults to the i5 integrated graphics. It should probably work (haven't tested yet - we're off to dinner) but we would rather use the nVidia GPU. How can I force PCSX2 to use it instead of the integrated graphics?
Intel i3-2367M CPU @ 1.4GHz, 4096MB RAM. Integrated Graphics only. Not sure how it's working with no lag.

go to nvidia control panel>manage 3D setting and put pcsx2.exe there.. my cousin laptop always uses integrated graphics and that solves the problem in pcsx2 cause it uses nvidia optimus

I'm getting "You are not using a display currently connected to nVidia" (or something like that) when I try accessing the nVidia control panel.

Getting 'NVidia Installer Failed'... Neither PhysX or Graphics Driver installed.
Using this one: http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook-wi...river.html
Or is that the wrong driver?

Pretty much the same result as the other one.

i think you need to update the Intel display Driver 1st.
Main Hub:i5-4670(3.4Ghz Factory Clocked),ATi Radeon HD7770(GDDR5+128-bit+1GB),Win 10 SL(x64),ASUS H8M-E,8GB DDR3 RAM

Ouch. Where might I find one for that? I tried searching the Intel Driver page but came up with no results.
It's an i5 2410M, in case you're wondering.
The integrated graphics are working pretty well, no lags or anything so far, but I think we can push it even further (resolution?) using the nVidia card.
