Disable Intel HD Graphics 4000

intel graphicsminecraftnvidia-geforceperformance-tuningswitchable-graphics

A while back, I called HP, asking how to disable the Intel Graphics and force the computer to use my ATI Radeon. They had me go through the BIOS settings, and I managed to get my laptop to only use my (impressive) Radeon video card.

Now, I have a new laptop with Intel HD Graphics and a (even more impressive) NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M. I notice the same problems I had with my old laptop before I changed the BIOS settings. Minecraft plays slow, benchmark tests use the Intel GPU, and more problems.

The situation is, I forget how to go through the BIOS settings and force the computer to use my NVIDIA card. Can someone please give me steps on how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

The technology you are using in that laptop is called optimus.

Most laptop vendors will no longer give you the option of forcing the system to use one card or the other.
