I had a look in my BIOS and I couldn't find any option that would allow that.
first at all check lspci | grep -i vgaI have optimus and I see both cards, Intel and nVidia.What do you see?If you install xf86-video-intel instead of nvidia driver, does it work then?
I am shopping for a new laptop. Most new laptops come with a hybrid graphics setup and often with NVidia (Optimus).
I am eyeing a Samsung Series 7 Chronos NP700Z7C-S02DE. It has an integrated Intel graphics card and a discrete Nvidia with Optimus technology.
