    I have an AW18 that when I try to project it's screen to my 55" Samsung tv, it doesn't fully connect; it shows that it's detected and does a brief circle dance saying "connecting" and then stops. When I press FN+F5 to switch to the IGPU, it connects without any issue. My AW18 is running a single Nvidia GTX980M 4940MX processor on Windows 10. Anyone experienced this and does anyone have a reason or solution to this? Thanks!

    Some days ago, on a whim of guessing Shadowplay was causing this issue of projecting to my tv disconnecting itself, I discovered just setting the Shadowplay Recording Option to not Shadow Time or even the option setting of setting both Manual and Shadow Time solved the issue; if anyone has or had this issue, simply setting the Shadowplay Record Option to only Manual mode will allow continued projection to function.
