Sorry to make my first post a help request, but I'm kinda stuck on this one. I just got a new netbook, the Asus 1215N with an ION graphics card/Integrated graphics combo. When you start up a game, it's supposed to switch the the more powerful ion, but it doesn't seem to be working. When pcsx2 starts up all it sees is the integrated graphics, and that's all it uses. I've tried forcing it to use the ion in the nvidia control panel, and setting the pc into "Super Performance" mode, but to no avail. Anyone know how to make it use the the better gpu, or how to manually select it? Thanks.

imho your netbook has this new "optimus" technology from nvidia
right click your pcsx2-shortcut and select "run with" or something like that. there you can choose the gpu you wanna run pcsx2 with.
you can also set the selection permanently in nvidia control panel
edit: afair you have to activate this "run with" option first in the nvidia control panal. its somewhere in the control panels menu bar (??)
