Issues with Lenovo Ideapad z570, switchable graphics switch is gone after repair?

If you have a z570 you'll know that they have a switchable graphic system controlled by a switch at the front of the laptop. However, after a repair by KNOWHOW, this switch is gone - they replaced the base plate obviously with the wrong model parts.
Is there any way I can bypass this switch and enable my Nvidia card manually? At the moment it's greyed out in the control panel and I can't use it to play any games.

This laptop used to have the switch. The Nvidia card in question is GT520M

I think the best course of action would be to contact the person who fixed your laptop. Sorry, I do not know of a way to bypass physical switches.
