    1803 Issue: Hybrid laptop with Discrete GPU Connected to Display


    Hello,

    I am getting this message when trying to update to 1803 "Cannot uninstall App: Hybrid laptop with Discrete GPU Connected to Display" Please uninstall manually and then refresh. I am getting this on 2 Alienware 17 R4 laptops.

    I have uninstalled the amplifier program and both Intel and NVIDA graphics drivers to no avail. Any suggestions?

    No it is not in the App and Features section.

    No help, but I am getting the same error with the same update on the same Alienware model.

    Same here on my Alienware M17 R4. Even had a new driver install for my Nividia Geforce GTX 1070 from device manager a little while ago and still no go.

    Mine is a brand new machine I just got at a charity auction Saturday night, so I have next to nothing extra installed on it. The only extras are the typical Windows updates.

    Yes my New Alienware 15 R4 arrived earlier today... and while installing the latest Windows upgrade now that 1803 is available, im getting that error.

    I obviously don't want to Uninstall "hybrid laptops with discrete GPU connected to display" in order to continue - so I stopped the update and now I don't know what to do.

    Consider uninstalling the drivers > performing the upgrade > reinstalling drivers

    Don't believe there is anything we can uninstall as the discrete GPU for our displays is our Nvidia video cards and we're not going to give those up. Hopefully Dell or Microsoft does a quick fix so we can get the 1803.

    Wonder if it would let us reinstall the driver if the 1803 takes without it.

    Having same issue here. I have an Alienware 15 R3. Updated nVidia drivers and AW BIOS, no avail. Then thought that it was maybe the OSD software that allows to switch between discreet or power saving, so removed that as well, no avail. Considering uninstalling all graphics drivers....however, as @FrancoDT points out, not knowing whether 1803 will allow me to re-install after the upgrade is making me hesitate.

    Currently posting on Windows Community, and was suggested to post feedback through the Feedback Hub app. Will report back with any details.
