    Actually, the display is only connected to Intel HD. When the Nvidia is running, the GPU only sends stuff to the Intel HD which then outputs to your monitor. Hence your Windows won't let you use the Nvidia by default. That also explains the external display only connected to the Intel HD on your PhysX control panel. You have to set your apps to run on the "High Performance Nvidia Processor" in order for them to run on the GPU. Also, the Nvidia control panel will only let you run Windows Themes on the Intel HD.
