    ok, i updated the nvdia drivers the other day and swapped back to on-board for class, now i cant get back to the 335 card...

    i read most of the hybrid sticky, but cant seem to sift through to locate a way to fix this issue.

    can anyone offer any words of wisdom?

    thanks.

    update:

    did a sys recover...can swap back now again.

    however, my drivers are back to the 197 series.

    anyone know how far up i can go in driver to still get the swapable f6 mode?

    seems the 267 series does not allow the swapping f6 mode to work.

    ideas?

    You can't use nVidia drivers from their site, you can only swap(f6) with Dells Official drivers from their website, I think there is a 263 version out now.

    If you upgrade your driver, you need to switch your GPU to discrete in the BIOS, that will disable the switchable feature and the Intel card. Then you can use any driver from nVidia directly.

    before i did the roll back, did this and the max res was odd looking.

    i will try the 263 - dl'ing now - and hope this works.

    sad one can't use the swapping method with nvidia drivers... :(
