comment Dock with dual external DVI monitors with Intel + Nvidia Optimus?
thanks! I no longer dual-boot the Dell Latitude E6420 laptop so can't try what you suggested, but I bet your answer will help other people!

comment Dock with dual external DVI monitors with Intel + Nvidia Optimus?
@Jan thanks but I wasn't saying "this is taking too long to figure out" but rather that switching the BIOS setting on EVERY reboot and then reconfiguring the display settings every time is tedious, time-consuming, and impractical. I'm looking to find settings that "stick".

@Lekensteyn Consuming more power is an option if it fixes my problem. How can I use "discrete mode"? Do you just mean uncheck the "Optimus" box? That led to problems mentioned above. Thanks.

Thanks, but that is not a practical option as it takes far too long to change all the settings.

I think changing that BIOS setting caused problems in both Windows 7 (I'm dual booting) and Ubuntu.
