M11X issues with switching graphics

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I updated my nvidia graphics drivers to the latest version, and then this happened. notice it says that its using nvidia drivers for the intel GMA. I trying uninstalling the intel drivers and reinstalling them but when I try to reinstall with the drivers from dell it says I don't have the right hardware for it. Even if I try to manually install the drivers it it says they are already the most recent version. So the only way I can do anything is to disable the integrated graphics in bios. (Using only the dedicated 335m) But I would like to be able to switch for the battery life. When I try to switch with the function key, nothing happens.. Dont know what to do any more. Any help would be great.. thanks

Are you using the dell drivers or straight off nvidia?

tryed the drivers from dells website, tryed the nvidia optimus drivers on the optimus page, but they just look like super out dated normal drivers. and I also tryed the newest drivers from nvidia... and nothing

Im going to get rid of both drivers and run driver sweeper. then start from scratch, if that doesnt work. well, idk

after you run it install the old dell drivers again. Its integrated graphics anyways, not like you need an fps boost for the IGP

Anyone have an idea on what I can do? I noticed when i boot my m11x in switchable mode, both the 335m and the intel gma are going. but only the gma renders. So confused.... Is there a download for just optimus?
