I am having issues installing the ati drivers on my laptop; just wanted to know a way if my laptop support switchable graphics so that I can switch to integrated graphic card for better experience on ubuntu-graphics.

----------Hardware Specification-------------

sockets@ankit:/tmp$ lspci  | grep -i VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Seymour [Radeon HD 6400M Series]

The above results show that I also have integrated Intel VGA controller; how can I switch to this graphic card permanently if it is well supported by Ubuntu?
