Windows 7: First time using Graphics Card

First time using Graphics Card

I'm new to having a dedicated graphics card.

I've had my new laptop for a while now and realised I've never looked into how to use my graphics card. Although I don't play games, I am a graphic designer so thought it would be suitable.

The graphics card came with the laptop - Nvidia Geforce GT 540M.

I have the control panel but I'm not sure how to use the settings to make sure I get the best experience with it, I haven't found any user guides.

I'm assuming that so far I've been using the Intel HD graphics card, but I'd like some help using the Nvidia card for my Adobe software and maybe when I'm watching videos online through my browser?

If you want to change the settings (which is really not required), it is best to experiment. Everybody has a different opinion on an 'optimal picture' and it is hard to say what would suit you. Just do not make any drastic changes at each time. Move the sliders just a little bit. And when you do not like it, you can always hit the 'Default' button.
