NVIDIA Control Panel: Program Settings disabled (greyed out)

Date Published: 11/24/2013 5:57 PM

Hi Tech Support! Maybe you can be more helpful than NVIDIA support.

The preferences in the NVIDIA control panel that allow me to choose the default graphics card for applications are greyed out. I understand that this is intentional for browsers and media players since driver 320.xx, but I have no access to this option for any program. I had access to these options in the past.

Here is a thread from /r/nvidia that explains exactly my problem with screen shots: Nvidia Control Panel Help

I first noticed the problem after I installed driver 331.82. I reverted back to driver 310.90 in a full reinstall. This did not fix the problem. Reverting back to the factory drivers from my computer's back-up partition didn't help either.

My system's specifications:

Lenovo B570

Intel Core i3-2310M CPU @ 2.10GHz 2.10GHz

NVIDIA GeForce 410M

Intel HD Graphics 3000

Windows 7 x64 SP1

NVIDIA Control Panel v. 7.5.780.0
