Hello izzy92,


Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities.  


Based on the information you provided, I see that your system has a discrete GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 TI). The graphics processing unit and the Integrated Graphics will not work together at the same time, we don't know which GPU is responsible for providing the image to your monitor, it depends on how the system was set up inside the BIOS and which graphics were enabled to be used. You should contact Razer, your system manufacturer to get further assistance
