      i recently updated to windows 10 pro version 1903,

      i was using NVIDIA NVS 5200m as my graphics driver, after updating windows switched me to an Intel driver   as my default driver,

      You can update drivers directly from NVidia.

      You may be able to roll back the driver, depending on your machine’s current situation. However, if your previous driver was not compatible with your new OS version, this won’t be much help.

      OK I am guessing a bit here, to me it sounds like you got changed to a DIFFERENT graphics hardware. Often we have an onboard (on the mother board) GPU installed that is lacking in power/speed and have PCIe graphics card installed that would be much more powerful. Going in to device manager under DISPLAYS to see what is listed. Likely you have an onboard Intel graphics ‘card’ listed as well as an Nvidia one.
      I had a second thought on what I was saying and realized if your monitor was still displaying you must still be using the same GPU (‘card’) unless you actually have 2 cables installed from the computer to the monitor or are on a laptop.

      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
