T530 with Intel graphics how to disable nvidia

#1 Post by cadillacmike68 » Fri Apr 24, 2020 12:20 am

OK, so I got a new (to me) T530 a little while ago. The shortened screen is (16x9) as compared the the T61 & T500 is noticeable and a hinderance.
I did find the thinklight, it's on the spacebar!

MTM is 2392-49U I7 CPU Intel graphics 16GB RAM 500GB HDD, camera

OK, After THREE installs from the recovery discs I finally got winblows updates and MSE to work correctly, got through the important updates, and got rid of most of the bloatware.

It has the nvidia drivers, etc all loaded on it and I want to keep them on the system because I plan on using this as a base image for another T530 or W530 which I hope to get with the dedicated GPU.

However I don't want the nvidia control,panel loaded and the three or more processes running on this system All they are doing is sucking up CPU cycles because there is no nvidia GPu in the system!

A couple more things:

It's out of warranty; is there any sense to keeping the warranty and registration preloads on it? For example quicker determination on parts lookup on Lenovo's site??

ThinkPad communications utility Keep or remove? It is supposed to integrate the camera, audio, etc.

Lenovo system bridge - keep or remove?

If there is no nVidia GPU, the control panel should not load even you try. Strange that it does. Does it?

Hi, It doesn't load from the control panel, says there is no nvidia card in the system, but there is an icon in the taskbar tray. It starts every time. There are two processes running, nvtray and nvxdsync in task manager. I wonder if I should prevent those from starting.

There is also a display driver and update daemon in services (msconfig) i don't want to mess up the system - took me three recovery processed and several days to get it close to where I can move over applications, but I don't want to have the GPU stuff tying up resources in a system without a GPU.
