    NVIDIA Display settings are not available


    Hi everyone,

    I know this isn't a Windows problem, but I feel like this is the best forum for me to post in since I got a great and fast response for my problem last time.

    When I try to open my NVIDIA Control Panel, it always gives me the message:

    "NVIDIA Display settings are not available.
    You are not currently using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU."

    I have a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.

    In other threads that I have looked through, the solution is mostly that the display is plugged into the motherboard. But in my case, as you can see on the attached picture, my motherboard only has a DVA slot.

    I don't understand a lot about computers and hardware things, but I definitely know I have a graphics card.

    Hello,

    Press WIN + R to open a run dialog.
    Type in "winver"

    and check if your Windows 10 version is above 1511.

    Maybe you should disable Intel Integrated Graphics through the BIOS.

    The manual from your motherboard should contain instructions on how to do that. Or look for the option by yourself.

    This is your graphics card.

    OTOH, you could check Device Manager to see what graphics adapter it thinks you are using. If Asuza is correct, it will show up as the onboard adapter rather than the external PCIe card. My best guess is that you are using the card, but something is wrong with the driver. This will tell you what's what:

    Thus, for example, this shows my old but still capable 7xx card at work.

    It shows both the "Intel(R) HD Graphics 530" and "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti"

    Then perhaps Asuza is correct, and you need to figure out how to switch over from the Intel HD graphics to your external card at the BIOS level. I have integrated graphics on all of my desktops, and those with external graphics cards turned on and working do not show the built-in graphics circuitry in Device Manager unless I opt to "Show hidden devices." Interesting! Most modern motherboards switch off the built-in graphics as soon as they detect a PCIe graphics card plugged into the bus. What motherboard is your system using?
    If it's just a BIOS change, this should be pretty easy to do. We can look it up in your motherboard manual, if you'll tell us what you've got.

    I also looked through Google and it said I should just disable it from the Device Manager. I did, but the error still comes up when I open the NVIDIA Control Panel. I looked at a video of disabling it from BIOS, but the layout is completely different from the Windows 10 one. If you can help with this or I can look into it further on Google.

    Could you take a picture of your bios and upload it here? We can guide you through the process of disabling Integrated Graphics and forcing PCIe in the bios with your help of providing us screenshots. Perhaps login to tenforums with your mobile so you don't have to restart your PC the whole time.

    Edit: I'm going offline soon. I'll be here tomorrow morning again to assist you
