One solution is to tell your friends to never buy any HP products cause they will gain no support.
Maybe HP money loss will make them answer to customers pleas.
There is too no bios option in Pavilion G6-2270ew to change GPU card being used. And switchable mechanics doesn`t work. I bought that HP notebook just because nice GPU. No games is being started with dedicated card but Intel integrated one.

NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology
Automatically transitions between NVIDIA graphics and Intel Integrated Graphics, seamlessly and in the background, to give you great performance and great battery life – whether you’re watching a movie, surfing the web, or playing a 3D game.
If you want to force nVidia graphics on certain applications:
Run the Nvidia Control Panel
Go to Manage 3D settings.
On the Program Settings tab you select the drop down
Select the exact path of the executable file you want the nVidia graphics to boost.
Make sure Nvidia High-Performance Processor card is selected below that.
I used nVidia Inspector monitoring features to prove that my Geforce GT 630m was being used with my games.

If was as easy as following the directions in the nVidia control panel, then almost nobody would have a problem.
People with this problem TRIED THAT. It doesn't work. It does nothing. NVidia is my default processor AND it is specified for a couple programs. It is never being used.
