games not using graphic card

I just bought a new computer with quite good stuff, but after all installation there something wrong, games that require graphic cant seem to use the graphic card, the fps are very bad.
I have the lastest driver and already put the default mode of display to the gfx card, the nvidia geforce gtx 1050 (in the nvidia control panel).
im using windows 10.

Re: games

With a new computer, that's a warranty issue. Back to the shop or the maker to have it fixed.

I dont think its a problem with the computer itself, maybe just a tweak I forgot and can't seem to figure it out

Re: tweak

Since it should work out of the box, the chance that you tweaked too much is bigger than that you forgot a tweak. Go back to factory conditions, install one game only and try again.

what do you mean I tweaked too much?
the computer is freshly installed, drivers freshly updated, option of the gfx card turned on, I installed about 2-3 games but when I launched a "big" game, but the fps are really bad like the REAL gfx is not used.
I dont see how I can go far back, this is the minimum basically

Re: what

Sorry, I understood "bought a new computer" as meaning you bought a Dell or an HP or so that came with all hardware and OS and drivers installed. Now I get the impression that there's a lot of DIY work involved. That changes the situation indeed, making it much more difficult.
