Ok, so my laptop have two GPU the Intel HD graphics and the Geforce 310m cuda 512m. I kinda want to use the Geforce gpu as my main and I don't know how to do it.
Hello, how will I know what gpu is my laptop using? (Resolved)

Notebooks that have two means of producing video will normally use the dedicated video chip for more demanding tasks such as gaming but will revert back to using the secondary HD provided by many CPUs when only browsing or doing office or school type work, this is to reduce power consumption and internal heat.
Post the brand and model name or number of your notebook so that we can check the specs.

Nothing to stop you doing that if and when you want, having switchable graphics is a bonus that is only found on better spec notebooks, the idea is to prolong battery and other hardware life by not maxing them out when there is no need to, try the following to enable the Nvidea 310M GPU;
If no joy, post a link to your particular notebook, the info above throws up the results here that do not help.

Thank you sir phillpower2, But I already did that, I saw it on some site, hehe. Is it the only way it seems dxdiag and ccleaner still recognize the Intergrated gpu hehe.

The IGPU will always be detected but it can be disabled, not a good idea imo though.
Two ways, first is in the Device Manager but it may not stay disabled as it will most likely be detected as new hardware when you reboot the computer, second, in the BIOS, as said not a good idea as you would have no graphics at all should something go wrong with the Nvidea 310M GPU, something as simple as a driver update going wrong for example.
