Cannot get Nvidia graphics card as default in a HP TP01-2165z

HP Recommended
TP01-2165z
Microsoft Windows 11

Hi,

I am having trouble getting my desktop to set my NVidia GT1030 graphics card as default. I have downloaded the new Nvidia driver software and installed it for Windows 11. The Device manager recognizes the Nvidia card as working. I have tried the NVidia control panel, AMD Radeon software menu and Windows System/Display/Graphics and I cannot find a switch to make the Nvidia card as default. Additionally, checking the BIOS, there appears no provision in the BIOS that sets graphics from the motherboard to a graphics card. Any help in determine how to set the NVidia graphics card for to default would be appreciated.

hi

@RedOwl19600  why do you think the card is not by default ??
When installing a graphics card, the monitor must  connected to it.
And the built-in should be disabled, as it is mentioned here

Integrated graphics

  • AMD Radeon Graphics
note:
Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed.

@RedOwl19600 -- if you hold-down the "Windows" key (bottom-left of your keyboard) and tap the "P" key, does it show that you have two screens?

 

Or, right-mouse-button click anywhere on your desktop wallpaper, and choose "display settings".  You should be able to nominate the external monitor as the "primary" display.

Holding the Windows key and pressing the P key shows the following two small boxes checked as follows:

 

Box 1        Box 2

   X                                  PC Screen Only

   X               X                Duplicate

   X               X                Extend

                    X                Second Screen Only

 

As I am not familiar with the above settings and I have no idea  how to correct anything that needs correcting on the System/Display/ Graphics switches in Windows 11 in order to make the NVidia card as default.
