Ok
Thank you all for the quick replies and the help
How can I mark the thread as solved?

PS: So I can update the "Intel Driver - Graphics Media Accelerator" without losing the switching feature? and what is the Nvidia N11M-GE1?

This one,

Drivers and Downloads

is for the models that only have the Geforce 310M,

NVIDIA GeForce 310M - Notebookcheck.net Tech

this one,

Drivers and Downloads

is for those that only have the 330M in them. Unless Dell has gone and removed the DevID for one or the other, for these tow either driver should work with both cards.

In your case again you cannot use or update the Intel driver for the same reason that you cannot use either of the drivers above; the driver for your model laptop has both the Intel and Nvidia driver in one package and updating just the Intel driver will break the switching capability.
