It will use Nvida GT 630m Automatically, When some applications need it, For example When you are zooming a pic in Adobe photoshop, or using mozilla Firefox,
You can right click the application and also force to use the graphics processor, by choosing Nvidia.I think by default it will choose all the applications installed in your system. U can see this in Nvidia control panel>Manage 3D Settings>Program Settings.
If you are using Windows 7 then u can Download GPU meter desktop widget, You can see the graphs of the Nvidia Processor being used, At max the usage will be 3% when you are using Firefox. After downloading this only I realized it uses GPU only when Required.
