GPU Recognition?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Many times when, I run some sort of GPU testing program (FurMark, 3DMark06), my POS integrated GPU will be displayed. Is there a way to switch it so my nVidia GeForce GT 555m will be displayed? Does this mean mine computer is only using the Integrated Graphics card? I didn't even see an option in FurMark to switch the renderer and I'm guessing for 3DMark06 you need to buy the full version? In MSI Afterburner it recognizes the 555m fine.

I know nVidia has the Optimus technology as well and my laptop has a hardware switch above the keyboard that supposedly has to do something with that but doesn't seem to do anything.

Thanks.

Benchmarking software should let you select which display adapter to use, and some games and other software do as well.

Just look in the options somewhere.
