(first time im having major problems with any pc so please understand if i dont get what you're saying at first)

I have been trying to make cs go run better and i noticed that it wasnt being run by my 840m but rather my integrated graphics card. Not much time later i figured that the gpu wasnt being used at all...

I tried to disable the integrated graphics but that didnt help. i also found that i couldnt disable it through my bios (device manager was the only option).

I simply dont know, i have read ALOT of other threads but none of them helped me.

Please help ;_;
