Hello all how u doing ,,,,,
I have lenovo t500 c2d T8400 , 2gb ddr3 , 160gb hdd

I have seen on internet that almost all of the t500 have siwtchable graphics from intel to Ati .
But i cant find any , neither in bios or in device manager in windows options !
really confused kindly help me out . Could there be any possibillty that the vga might not be attached with the mobo, I mean its unplugged or taken out from previous user . As i bought it used from a local shop in my area !
 
Hi,

Yes some T500 models does have a switchable graphics card and yours may not have one though. Go to Device Manager and expand Display Adapter and see if you'll get 2 graphics card listed but if there's only 1 Intel graphics card that will confirm it.

Here are 2 T500 model laptops but 1 has switchable graphics card and the other doesn't have one.

With 2 GPU:
