Is the NVIDIA GeForce 650M on a Windows platform not supported for Photoshop CS6? Every time I go into the preferences and look at the Graphics Processor Settings, it only recognizes the Intel HD Graphics 4000. The card is a NVIDIA GeForce 650M 2GB on Windows not a Mac. Thanks!

The OS/OpenGL libraries choose which card to use, and for some reason it wants to choose your built-in GPU instead of the card.

Sometimes there are utilities to disable the built-in GPU, and sometimes BIOS settings to disable it.

And is your display connected to the card or the built-in GPU port?

I got it! Thank you very much! The NVIDIA Control Panel was telling all of the programs to use the integrated graphics instead of the card.
