Ok recently bought a G750JM from Best Buy. Thought it would the best purchase of the year. Wow I was wrong. The idiotic Optimus technology will not allow me to use the Nvidia GPU at all for any of my games. I looked all over the net for a fix but every single one of the failed. Well I give up and will be taking the brick back to Best Buy for a refund. Not putting up with a machine that will not play my games the way I want them too.

May try looking at the setings for the nVidia driver. I've only had a couple problems but those are for games that aren't officially out yet (Battlefield: Hardline, Star Citizen) all I had to do in the driver to manage the 3d settings is point to the .exe file and tell it to use the nVidia car. Also in the Geforce Experience you may want to disable Battery Boost in the GeForce Experience if you are wanting to run games over 30 FPS on battery.

Like BMWodarski suggested, in the NVidia CP--> Manage 3D settings--> Global settings, you should be able to change the "Preferred graphics processor" to "High performance NVIDIA processor", and "Power management mode" to either "Prefer maximum performance" or NVIDIA driver controlled".

Already tried everything I could find online. Nothing works due to the Optimus system. I am not fooling with it anymore. Took it back and am getting one of these: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/msi-gt70-dominator-895-17-3-laptop-intel-core-i7-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-aluminum-black/5142092.p?id=1219111591490&skuId=5142092&st=pcmcat287600050003_categoryid$abcat0502000&cp=1&lp=4

I only had to pay $250 more out of pocket to get it, but it does not have the crappy optimus technology.
