Hi, i have a similar problem with this person here
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic418407.html

Yes, very similar. I tried disabling the intel display adapter from device manager, restarted and max screen resolute is 1024x768 and not 1366.768.

MY specs are,
Acer 4750G i7
Nvidia Geforce 540M

I pressed F2 to go into Bios but there isnt any menu for me to change primary adapters or etc. Or maybe it could be another BIOS?

Help would be greatly apreciated.

Well, this is the nature of Nvidia's Optimus Technology.

For basic tasks (usage) that aren't GPU intensive, the system automatically switches to Intel's onboard graphics to save power (better battery life). But when you decided to do some serious gaming or watch HD movies, the system switches to the 540M to meet performance expectations.

While there isn't a definitive solution to this problem, you will find an option in the NVIDIA control panel to set the GPU (540M) as your preferred option. You will need to look for this.

MY friend had a acer laptop with Nvidia 400+ card. Under the display adapter at screen resoulution advance tab, the display adapter shows its Nvidia, for me, it shows that it is Intel HD graphic family. If he's adapter is Nvidia, why cant i change it to Nvidia too?
