Crashing on Dell XPS L502X

Hey guys,

I'm new to this forum & would really love a bit of help.
I'd like to try out the demo on my laptop (I've tried the demo on my desktop & no problems), but after installing, I can get as far as the main window (New | Examples | Load | Tutorials). If I click on a new scene, my screen flickers on and off & my Intel HD Accelerator crashes & restores itself continuously.

I'm running a Dell XPS L502, i7 2620, Nvidia GT540M 2GB, 6GB Mem

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Right... figured it out for now...

If anyone else maybe has a similar problem in future.

Go to: NVIDIA Control Panel (right click on your desktop) > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings.
Add Lumion to the program to customize.
Set the preferred graphics processor for the program to High-performance NVIDIA processor.
