Aside from a known Sonic Generations compatibility issue that was easy to fix, the only time I've had the real compatibility issues was when the Intel video came up during Saints Row The Third, but all I had to do was right-click the icon and close it . There's still something that gets in the way, possibly related to Optimus. But now I've seen that it only affects games with Havok, which is strange. Every time it seems I'm close to fixing computer issues, something else comes up.
And then I always get temporary fixes that can't even be explained. I checked the NVIDIA control panel and found that it was set to Quality instead of Balanced, which plagued my desktop as well. Then I unplugged the laptop to put it on battery, but made sure it was still in performance mode. No idea why this would make a difference, but might as well try everything. Right-click Sonic Generations, start with NVIDIA processor, had no issues where I was previously getting them constantly. And yet I have no doubt that if I try this again, it's going to get a drop. It's really baffling.
First edit: A couple hours later, I've tried 3 more times. No problems with Sonic Generations, plug the AC back in, and worse than ever. Presumably because it's charging? Should that matter? Once it says "plugged in, not charging," I'll have to try again.
Second edit: Laptop went to "fully charged," tried it and same issue. Unplugged it, tried it twice again, worked fine. Unplugged is 5 for 5 in Sonic. I have no idea how this is working.
I'm terrible at this.
