Nvidia issue after re-install

Hello, I've seen multiple issues regarding Nvidia and hybrid / prime however none of these issues appear to relate to the issues I am having.

I've had Manjaro installed for about two months now, running off an Alienware laptop with two external monitors, one plugged into HDMI and the other USB-C. After some playing about I managed to get it working (with Nvidia) until I decided to completely remove Windows, re-install Manjaro on the old Windows Partition and move my home folder to the larger SSD.

Now, after the re-install I have been completely unable to get the second monitor working with the Nvidia drivers installed. If I remove the Nvidia drivers the USB-C monitor works again.

The really frustrating thing is that this used to work on the previous install, I have a timeshift backup of the previous install but because I've been running this new install for a couple of weeks I dont really want to re-image the machine. I also have a list of previously installed packages but couldnt find anything standout (different between the old install and the new install) even the package versions are the same.

Never mind, fixed it with this command:
sudo mhwd -f -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime
