open regedit
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{nvidia number}\0000
in the 0000 folder there should more settings on the right pane more than any of the other video registries.
in there, can you see PowermizerEnable is on? Same applies to PerfLevelScr

hpw can I improve it ?
I'm afraid there isn't much you can do apart from overclocking it?

Actually, I wouldn't recommend doing that either. Laptops are generally already tuned to the best they can be given the form factor. Overclocking a tuned system in a very closed environment will likely result in damaging the GPU and make the laptop unusable.

Please remember, laptops are NOT desktop computers. Majority of the parts, namely the GPU and Sound card are INTEGRATED with the mainboard. Tweaking the parameters of a laptop will often result in instability or damage to the system due to the fact that the only thing cooling the laptop is the one or two fans built in.

Most overclocking requires much more detail than just 'tweaking' the chipset, it also involves making sure the system voltage is regulated to deal with the overclocking and most importantly cooling.

So unless you want to brick your laptop or try to strap on a laptop base cooler, which sort of defeats the purpose of it being a laptop, just to make your laptop's performance rating go up over a video card score... I highly suggest not taking that route.

I don't know if this will work...but is it possible to disable the On Board graphics chip in device manager, and enable the nVidia card?

It is... On a normal desktop. For laptops, however, there isn't really an option, as nVidia and AMD chipsets rarely come as a USB external device.

What do you mean? I can disable my laptop GPU and enable it as I please in device manager...Device Manager doesn't just deal with USB sticks....

You are failing to grasp the situation of this post, however. For the most part, laptops only come with ONE graphics adapter. By disabling it, you cannot make use of any graphics adapter. Even you, yourself, suggested disabling the onboard graphics in order to use an nVidia card. On a laptop, you are effectively disabling the only graphics adapter available SHORT OF AN USB EXTERNAL GRAPHICS ADAPTER.

To my knowledge, there is currently no other means to provide graphics to a laptop beyond the onboard graphics adapter except with a USB to VGA/DVI Adapter. And to my knowledge, most of those are designed for simple Windows Desktop, NOT for serious GPU/Gaming.

And no, I am not thinking oboard graphics adapter != nVidia card, or AMD card. The graphics card, be it intel, nVidia or AMD is still an ONBOARD, INTEGRATED graphics adapter on a laptop. It isn't two separate things.

But, he has 2 GPUs...and it will make the CPU do the work even if it doesn't use the nVidia chip.

Only one problem with his post...

He states he has a Dell Inspirion N5110, basically, the Inspirion 15R.

Look here:

Now, while someone has mentioned that Toshiba has a switchable graphics card with an Intel and a GPU, I don't think this is quite true with Dell. I haven't heard of laptops getting setup with switchable graphics adapters either, therefore, how well this will work is questionable.

switchable graphics between integrated (onboard) and dedicated (-_-) started really becoming mainstream around the 2nd to 4th quarter 2010...


as far as i know for intel and nvidia, the lappy's also have optimus. dunno about ati.

with regard to what i think may be happening to the OPs lappy vs WEI, may indeed be optimus and/OR powermizer settings.

powermizer settings if not seen can and should be changed through the registry, since the settings may put the graphics adapter to perform less well.
registry with the hybrid or optimus settings might have to change? maybe?

my nvidia 310m has the same video driver as the 525m. however, my nvidia is older and an entry level, while the 525m is newer and mid-level. his WEI should be better than mine, period. i don't have switchable on my computer, while he does. CURRENT intel graphics is around aero 4.8.
i'm pretty sure that optimus is the problem here.
