    I have a problem with a MSI 2PE Apache pro Laptop (GTX 860M): no matter what driver I choose (original geforce driver or those from the MSI CD) I dont have the optimus icon in system tray which tells me which GPU is active. OS is windows 8.1

    does anyone know what I can do here?

    In control panel

    Use the Nvidia control panel. Go to the desktop tab on the menu bar and choose the last option/check mark which says "display activity"
