Windows 7: Pick which video card to utilize built-in display

Pick which video card to utilize built-in display


I have a Samsung RC512 SO2 Netbook w/ Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

My Computer has two videos cards in it:
1) Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
2) NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M

Currently it is using the Intel card for my built-in display on the laptop.

The max resolution is only 1366 x 728. I am looking for any way to jack up the resolution.

Is there a way to switch the built-in monitor's video card to the GeForce, with hopes that it offers a higher resolution?

The only thing I could find is a way to utilize the Nvidia card for another monitor if I plug it in, but not for the built-in display of the laptop.

You cannot increase the resolution of your monitor regardless. LCDs have a fixed native resolution anything outside of that doesn't work. Or would be highly pixelated.

Yep, the resolution of the display is going to be your limiting factor.
