Re: Alienware M17X R3 Stuck with Integrated Intel HD3000

Nvidia Optimus Selection for M11x-R2, M11x-R3, M14x, M17x-R3, M18x
The Nvidia processor is turned on only for preset applications and thus extends the battery life. To force it on all the time, do the following -
* Be sure the AC adapter is plugged in
* Open the Nvidia Control Panel
* Select Manage 3D Settings
* Under the Global Settings tab, select High Performance Nvidia processor
* Click Apply
* Close the Nvidia Control Panel
* Run the Nvidia Optimus Test Tool
* Test some games
* If still no go, follow the correct video driver install/uninstall procedure
