    Hai everyone,

    I have a problem that's bugging me for a pretty long time.

    I have a Lenovo b560 with Intel HD integrated and nVidia GrForce 310M. I haven't found the option to change my primary display adapter to the nvidia one anywhere.

    Is it anyhow possible?

    Just found out that disabling/uninstalling the Intel HD adapter won't switch to the GeForce one for primary either, it goes to VGA graphics adapter or smth like that but just can't get it on the nVidia one :/

    Under the Graphics Display I can select "Optimus" and ign or something like that. Anyhow, the Optimus thingy is a technology developed by nVidia which gives you better battery life and performance at the same time. It says in the BIOS that it should only be enabled on Windows 7 and the other thingy on Win XP.
