Laptop using wrong graphics card

We have a Dell M4700 with a Quadro K2000M running the latest driver 9.18.13.2092

 

Problem is, we cant get invento to use this card, its always using the intergrated graphics.  I have read some posts about optimization etc but cant find anything to force it to use the correct card.

 

All graphics settings are set to performance and I have set inventor application to use this card but the inventor diagnostic is still using intergrated...

 

I have duel monitors, main DVI set to use the K2000M, second VGA using intergrated, Inventor is set to run on the main

 

let me know if you need more info..

Not sure if this topic is of any help to you?

I'm seeing quite a lot of integrated graphic card related topics lately, wonder why it's causing so many problems...
Guess laptops are focusing too much on games...
