Card possibly not working.

Hi

I bought a new laptop (Samsung rc730-s01) with i7 processor, 4GB ram (ddr3) and Nvidia 540m Graphics card.
If i want to play modern warfare,I get e really low fps..
I think my laptop uses my onboard graphics card instead of my Nvidia card
is that possible? how do I solve this problem?

Thanks

when booting your laptop, go into cmos and check the settings, see what graphics it is using, set your Nvidia 540m as primary graphics, don't use onboard graphics, it sux.

not in the cmos! there must be an option! right click on desktop, Nvidia Control Panel, check your 3D settings...

run dxdiag in "run" to see if you graphics is picking up.
