Sorry, the laptop is not designed to work this way. Are you having some sort of problem? Perhaps someone here can help you find a solution that will work.

The first thread highlights an issue with Counter-strike which appears to be a driver issue. The second one has a reply stating that Vegas doesn't even use the GPU. So it seems like there is a flicker issue (and not even constant) with one game. So far that sounds like something Nvidia would just fix with a driver update.

If Nvidia can't create a solution which intelligently detects all scenarios when you need a GPU then (IMO) the solution would be a *Windows* setting to force the GPU to be active on the fly, not a BIOS setting to disable the integrated video.
