Trouble disabling integrated graphics card

HP Pavilion 690-0013w Gaming
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I have a PC with two graphics cards, an integrated one and the one that I currently use. I have 8 total GBs of ram and am only able to use 5.9, I heard that the integrated graphics card still uses some of that ram even if i’m not using it and was wondering if anyone could help me disable it. I’m sorry that i’m not really good talking about computers or can’t make this sound any simpler. I tried to get into BIOS because i saw videos that you could disable it that way but i only got HP Utility Support or its called something like that. Any help is very appreciated.

Trouble disabling integrated graphics card

Hey there! @ChristianA35

 

By default, The onboard video gets automatically disabled when a graphics card is installed and recognized by the BIOS.

 

Also, try updating the BIOS to the latest version and try the steps recommended below.

 

Update the BIOS using this link. Click Here

 

Press the power button to turn off the PC.
Press the power button again to turn on the PC, and then repeatedly press the esc key to enter the Startup Menu.
From the Startup Menu, press the F10 key to enter the BIOS setup utility.
Click Advanced.
Select Built-In Device Options.
Select Graphics, and then select Discrete Graphics.
Click Save, and, when prompted, click Save changes and exit BIOS.

 

Let me know if this works!

Have a great day ahead! 🙂
