Hi mercurial

The Levnovo Z510 has an NVIDIA GT 740M graphics card.  Passmarks unfortunately for the card are only 884, which means it is not going to run Lumion.

Refer further:
1.  LUMION 4: Minimum hardware requirements.

2.  Lumion Web Site: Specifications.

3.  Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks.

The Benchmark will show Intel as it is still the primary graphics, even though you have correctly assigned the NVIDIA card.  The 1800 result is still from the GT 740M, but is substantially below minimum Lumion benchmark requirements at the green line.  Refer to Benchmark for Laptop PCs - Integrated Intel Graphics.

A workstation is the preferred hardware environment due to much higher specifications available, especially for the GPU.  If a laptop is required, then only the top end of the cards have enough performance to be of use with Lumion, ie the GTX 870/880 or 970/980 cards.
