NVIDIA Surround on a laptop?
Dell G16 7620
I'm not sure if this is something that should be posted here or on with an NVIDIA support forum, but because I think it's a laptop-specific problem, I'll see what comes out of this attempt.
I've been trying to use NVIDIA's Surround function in order to stretch a game in fullscreen mode across my laptop's internal display and an external screen plugged into the HDMI port. I adjusted the resolutions and refresh rates to match each other, but I just can't figure out how to make it so both the internal display and the external monitor are both using the NVIDIA GPU.
For example, here's what my NVIDIA Control Panel looks like when I've manually switched the display mode to use the NVIDIA GPU:
No problems so far.
But when I connect the external monitor:
It forces my laptop display onto the Intel GPU while the external monitor is connected to the NVIDIA one, and doesn't present an option to manually override that for the internal display.
I've tried disabling the Intel Graphics Driver from the Device Manager, but then instead of switching to the NVIDIA GPU, it goes into this basic Windows Display Mode thing.
In all my googling, I've only ever found people posting about having issues with Surround on desktops, not laptops, and I haven't dug up anything that comes close to even explaining why this isn't working.
So if there's some wizard out there who can explain it, or even has a solution for me, it would be so extremely appreciated.
