    So apparently, I didn't have Intel Graphics driver installed, but now it automatically downloaded on my computer after switching monitors. Now when I try and load up a game, it uses my CPU for rendering the game and not my GPU. It makes the game very slow and I assume that the problem is that the computer is prioritizing the CPU for rendering games and uses the graphics card as the secondary video adapter.

    Specs:

    Operating System
    Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    CPU
    Intel Core i5 7500 @ 3.40GHz 39 °C

    If you have the video cable attached to the video card and not the onboard connector then it should be using that.
