Heya. New here obviously but I'm in a bit of a rut. Sorry for gramma etc using my mobile for this at the moment. Recently purchased myself a new laptop for multipurpose reasons. Everything from gaming (obviously not hardcore just something to tie me over until I build my new desktop) to Microsoft office use for work. I'm having issues with the switchable graphics that when I exit my game (kingdoms of amalur : the reckoning - for example) within minutes my laptop will freeze, which I am guessing happens when it switches back to the intel chipset. Wondering what I can do to stop this from happening even if that means forcing it to use the nvidia gfx card constantly. Below is my laptop specs if it helps.

Toshiba p850/030 with upgraded RAM

CPU
Intel® Core™ i7 processor 3610QM (Quad Core, 2.3GHz - 3.3GHz, 1600MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache)

Operating System
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium (64bit) with Service Pack 1 - can change to ultimate at any time

Screen Size
15.6" Widescreen HD LED Backlit Display (1366 x 768)

Memory
12GB DDR3 (4GBx 3) (1600Mhz)

Storage
750GB (5400rpm) SATA

Graphics
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 630M 2GB with Optimus + Intel® HD Graphics 4000 (4095MB Total: 2GB discrete memory + 2047MB shared memory)

Thanks in advance
