This is what my NVIDIA control panel looks like. It looks like it is not using my GPU to power my display.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Physx is used only for physics calculations.

Most laptops are preset to use onboard when not doing intensive gpu tasks and then swap to the gpu wehn doing things like gaming.
