7559 Video selection

Jump to solution

My 7559 has two display adapters.  Intel and Nvidia. How do I know which is in use? How can I select the one I want?

Hi ALFISCHER,

This technology is known as Optimus - read more here - 

Basically, if the processor in use is set to Auto - then the Intel will work when you use simple applications and it will automatically switch to Nvidia when any application or game requires more graphical power.

You could change the options in nvidia control panel - launch the program by right clicking on the desktop - see this pic for reference - http://bit.ly/248DYeG

Let us know if you have any other queries.

Thank you! That is an interesting piece of technology. My Alienwaare M18 has a simple function key to change video adapters.

This laptop is for my grandson who starts college this fall and I KNOW some games will magically appear on it somehow!

It would be helpfull if Dell could provide a manual for their systems that would explain what it has and how to manipulate it.

Look in the Dell folder in the "all apps" from the start bar -- there should be a full HTML manual on the system already.
