How To Set Nvidia Card As Default Instead Of Hd3000 ? Help

Recommended Posts

Someone please advise me how to set Nvidia Geforce 520m as the default and only Graphics card? I would like to replace the Intel Intel HD3000 with Nvidia 520m. I went through a couple's topic but I could not find anything. I tried to install KEXT (this) but still nothing. I think that you need to set some Nvidia graphics card ID, which would be fed. I really do not know. Does anyone have any experience with this?


Notebook specs:

  • [*]Processor: Intel Core i3 2310M (2,1 GHz) [*]Chipset: Intel HM55 [*]RAM: 4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz [*]Graphics Card: Intel HD3000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT520M (1024 MB)


Mac os X install (Drivers and config):

 Nvidia graphics card ID (one of the methods)

0x104010de&0xffc0ffff1040 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 520"1050 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M "1056 = "NVIDIA NVS 4200M"1057 = "NVIDIA NVS 4200M "

No, this is Optimus, the Nvidia will never work in OSX, only your HD3000 will work, you must deactivate the  Nvidia in Bios , then your HD3000 will work.
