I'd really like getting to know how to disable intel graphics. Anyone knowing a solution?
...read the above given link.
You need a "switch" in your BIOS,otherwise:
Tanks. So I'm not able to use the Nvidia graphics. I hope someday Acer will publish a BIOS update where we can choose such options.
I've contacted Acer about an BIOS update fixing the problem of having no choice to deactivate intel graphics. Their answer was:
In English:Informationen ob es ein entsprechendes BIOS geben wird, liegen aktuell noch nicht vor. Sobald es zu diesem Thema konkrete Informationen gibt, werden diese auf der Acer Webseite www.acer.de veröffentlicht.
I am on a Dell L501X ... I have tired installing/activating the NVIDIA drivers both manually (from the .run file) and from the "Additional Drivers" utility.
The drivers seems to have been installed .. but X keeps giving me "No screen found" error... the only workaround i found was to remove the Driver "nvidia" from the Xorg Conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf
I am just not able to dim my screen ,,, and i guess my eyes are about to pop out
..please read the "nvidia optimus" links from this thread to get a clue about the problem.You will not be able to use the nvidia-driver,maybe you can switch off your nvidia card to save battery power.
I have tired what realzippy suggested but i am Still not able to dim by screen....
I think (not sure) but i have turned down nvidia .. as suggested here : https://lists.launchpad.net/hybrid-g.../msg00450.html
My batter usage has come from 2000mW to ~ 1480 mW
But the problem remains ... the screen is just too bright !
congrats for 2000mW to ~ 1480 mW;
On my laptop this doesnot work unfortunately...
