How to turn off the nvidia gpu?

2013-01-26, 11:47 AM

Greetings all! Yesterday I was playing minecraft with the nvidia gpu on and all was dandy. I stop playing minecraft and switch the gpu to the internal. Heres wherer im confused...in hw monitor it says that it is still on...this wouldnt be a problem if it didnt raise my cpu temps, but it does ( 38-42 intel idle, 48-50 nvidia idle). I know that if i restart it fixes but I dont want to do that every day. Can you suggest something?

Have a look in the bios, press F2 key while booting, then look for an optimus setting, see if their is a disable option.
