    Default New laptop machines: Check your BIOS and tell me who can disable integrated graphics

    I'm looking to buy a new laptop with some decent hardware, but apparently many, it seems, refuses to allow us to disable the integrated graphics so that we can rely entirely upon our graphics card.

    I am sick and tired of this run-around game laptop manufacturer's like to play where they tell me something that isn't true about their machine. I can no longer trust laptop vendors to be honest about their machines, nor can I trust that they even know what they're talking about half of the time.



    So, if you wouldn't mind, if you have the option to disable integrated graphics FROM THE BIOS, please let me know. I'm tired of using that sometimes working sometimes not Nvidia control panel to handle the use of which graphics processor.

    If you have over-clocking options on your laptop's BIOS, that would make for a significant bonus in my consideration of which laptop to buy.

    Thank you.

    That is a common problem with Nvidia based notebooks. I have heard this same complaint repeatedly. The Nvidia software wont switch to the right gpu, or it get stuck at dual. Crashes during switching. Some even had to reinstall OS only for it to happen again.

    There are some work around but you will have to search the net for them. Or you can go with a gaming notebook with an AMD solution.
