    Three different installations of windows have been tried. (21H1) 19043.928 is the current one.

    DISM and SFC complete. SFC found corrupt files and repaired them. Restart complete. SFC scan is now clean.

    Windows Update is complete.

    Have previously tried two other GPU drivers (the driver automatically installed with windows, and the driver on the MSI website)

    When PC is running, the power light is white, which indicated integrated graphics mode is running. Monitoring the load on dGPU using windows resource montior, I can see that it remains at zero, even when running videos using edge browser.

    When I use windows settings to force dedicated GPU for VLC media player, then play a video using VLC, the light turns orange (indicating dedicated GPU mode for this laptop). However, in VLC the video does not playback correctly (sounds plays correctly for whole video, and first image frame loads correctly when opening, but the image does not change). During this time load in resource monitor on the dedicated dGPU remains zero.

    The temperature reading doesn't go above 55.

    Inserting HDMI cable then switching to 'duplicate screen' causes multiple spikes in the dGPU load (100%, 0%, 100%, 0%). It has also caused two BSD:

    1050 TI ,.no 1070

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials...-accelerated-gpu-scheduling-windows-10-a.html
    this disable + variable refresh rate "if exist"

    win 19043 ,.is latest 1266build or 1237 stable

    try last chipset drivers
    Intel Chipset Device Software Version 10.1.18836.8283 WHQL
    https://www.station-drivers.com/ind...Device-Software-Version-10.1.18836.8283-WHQL/

    // working igpu drivers
    last bios / ec

    the other is the hw problem "here is the chip on the mobo d-gpu"
    ,, it's not an easy fix!

    edit
    and why are you hiding SUBSYSTEM ID ??
    you need in best identical ID for DEVICE / SUBSYSTEM for correct vbios
    and this VEN / DEV look looks the opposite ?? your custom vbios ??

    nvlfash + cmd
    NVFLASH64 --version


    here verify real info for bios / if exist recovery
    ,.,or need vbios from MSI support "this vbios is impossible find"

    Bios is updated, chipset update with your link has now been tried. Variable refresh rate option does not appear.

    I don't know what you mean here:

    Do you mean recovery of the bios?
    What info do you need from NVFLASH to know if recovery of the bios is possible?

    Will reflashing bios void the warranty?

    nvlfash + cmd
    NVFLASH64 --version

    send only info ,,.not flash ,.,.,.must determine GPU problem !
    ,.,.hwdefect is impossible repair in NVFLASH

    but some info look weird - send this screen from NVFLASH "PM ?" full info !!

    try AFTERBURNER and negative OC
    determine HWproblem / or only POWER PROBLEM .,or VBIOS support for BOOST clock

    but this need small skill :D

    and still you need fully working igpu ?? / d-gpu - OPTIMUS
    igpu drivers works fully ??

    iGPU seem to work OK. The iGPU test in GPUz gives normal temperatures, 1.065v, 8.6 watts, 1050 Mhz. It renders correctly. All software works fine when laptop is in iGPU mode (white power light).

    Underclocking does not fix problem. Connecting HDMI has same effect and the same results from GPUz when testing. Jumps to 1506Mhz (GPU) and 3499Mhz (memory) when loaded up, then they drops to 607 and 405 Mhz after 3 seconds and stay there.

    When using Afterburner to lock the GPU at 1303Mhz and Memory at 3499Mhz, the video plays back correctly, but connecting with HDMI cable results in same behavior as before ( screen on and off, system hanging) and running GPUz tests results in the same behavior (a series of load spikes then a system message that GPUz has been blocked from accessing hardware).

    The details of the bios are: Sign-On Message : GP106 E2914 SKU 30 VGA BIOS IFR Subsystem ID : Blank Subsystem Vendor ID : 0x1462 Subsystem ID : 0x1244 Version : 86.06.6F.00.2B Product Name : GP106 Board Device Name(s) : GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Board ID : 0x005D Vendor ID : 0x10DE Device ID : 0x1C21 Hierarchy ID : Normal Board Chip SKU : 730-M Project : 2914-0030 Build Date : 06/01/18 Modification Date : 08/19/18

    The chip is this one by the looks of it:

    Can you confirm if reflashing the vbios will void the warranty?
