I have the same laptop and indeed it uses this technology. Here are a couple of screenshots of the steps you need to make to set nVidia as your card for Lumion.
My system is Hungarian (Win 7 64 bit) but hopefully the screenshots will hel identifying the individual panels.
First, go to your system control panel and select "Hardware and sound" (or what):
There, go to your vide card settings (maby already saying "nVidia settings" and find this (nVidia control) panel where go to 3D settings. Here you can set nVidia as your preferred card in the global settings.
In this case, unless you specify differently under the Program specific settings (there is always an option to use global settings), the above setting will be used.
You can however go to the other tab and select Lumion (here SketchUp is displayed as originally I made these screenshots for the SU help forum) and define specifically that it should use your nVidia card.
That's it. This card is not particularly strong to run Lumion very effectively but I guess it is good enough to put some smaller projects together. If I had had twice the money, I would have ended up with a better laptop but since it's almost exclusively my wife watching videos on it, I do not think it would have been a better investment.
