Go and hijack other threads, until we have at least a bug report to make sure what's happening instead of painting everything black first.
Oh really really really... So Lenovo US don't know what laptops they selling at thier online shop?
They offer 3 T510 models - 2 with IntelHD only and one with... NV3100M Optimus
PS: OK, there is some people at hybrid-graphics-linux mailings that own T410 NVS3100M and they report that they can't load nVidia chip in INEGRATED or AUTOMATIC BIOS settings and that there is DISCRETE setting too.
So maybe, just maybe, go to BIOS and switch your GFX to DISCRETE mode.
But IIRC it won't remain. GFX BIOS settings will switch to AUTOMATIC mode after power down.
Happy BIOS switching every time you power up your laptop...
