Answer
No PC details so

The basics of this would be to go over the drivers and maybe the BIOS for the machine in question.

When I see this I make sure the BIOS is current and the drivers are from the maker of the motherboard (or laptop maker) then install in this order: Motherboard package, audio, video, LAN and WiFi. Then any machine specific apps from the makers.

Windows Update or Microsoft's Driver Update is not used.

Answer
I have a Surface Book 2 and

it has a Nvidia GPU along with the integrated Intel. I control which GPU is used through the Nvidia Control Panel software. There is a section in the Nvidia CP that shows all my apps and allows me to assign which GPU to use. The Intel was the default setting for every application.
