Intel GPU Disappears! I am using i5-8400. This processor has UHD Graphics 630. I am not able to use it. It disappears from my PC. This happened after I installed MSI GTX 1650, I disabled Intel Graphic Processor.

In Desktop systems, the BIOS, by default, will disable the processor's graphics engine if it detects that an add-in graphics card is present. If the engine is disabled this way, it will typically also be hidden from the O/S (Windows, Linux, etc.). It is possible, however, to changes the BIOS Configuration such that the processor's graphics engine is always enabled (i.e. regardless of whether an add-in graphics card is present).

 

Ok, I've told you what to do if you want the processor's graphics engine to always be enabled, but you have to ask whether you should actually do this. The answer is normally No, as reasons for needing the engine enabled are few. The most common reason is so that you can utilize more monitors than the two/three that the add-in Desktop Graphics Card supports. There may also be cases where you need to do this in order to enable support for DRM within the chipset (Intel Management Engine), but this is typically not necessary as many add-in Desktop graphics cards provide this capability themselves.

 

Hope this helps,

HI ...S, I tried, but I was not able to find the processor's graphics engine from BIOS. The only GPU that I found is the add-on GTX card.

 

I thought I would not need the CPU embedded GPU with my new card. With GTX 1650, my computer would not start after a long sleep. I am thinking to use my CPU embedded GPU as it was fine. May be I should try to solve the sleep issue; but this is not simple either.

 

Thanks

If you can't find the graphics settings in you motherboard's​ BIOS Setup, then call your motherboard vendor's support and have them explain it to you.

I​f you want to use the on-chip graphics engine, remove the add-in graphics card. This should automatically reenable the on-chip graphics engine.

Shoud I contact the motherboard vendor or MSI as my next move? May be both.

 

I'll try to remove the add-in grahic card. Good suggestion. Hopefully the embedded GPU would come back automatically.
