Vostro 3550 switching graphics in bios
I have just registered just to post this.
ADD THAT OPTION TO BIOS! Solution that came with A09 is totally useless, after six months this problem is going to be in here again because some programmer will code something differently and we just won't be able to shut one of those cards off. Switching graphics is a nice thing, but not when it is left just on software, or even more, just on software in windows!!!
This post is a reaction on this http://www.ideastorm.com/ideaView?id=087700000008XjiAAE&p=27&sby=DESC one, so we could separate the solving of the problem into more specific categories - and this category represent the simplest and easiest solution - turn one of those cards off in bios and turn it on when you know you will now need it, boot process takes like 45 seconds these days and turning the card off in bios is always absolutely 100% working solution.
Thanks for solving this, all other companies that are making laptops (ok, I don't care about acer/asus and so on...) have this option in bios so if I am supposed to buy dell next time, please make the bios look like more the lenovo bios do - not all of your customers are afraid of that screen.
