I am sorry but what is GPU offloading? will it disable my NVIDIA permanently?

A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train
stops. On my desk I have a work  station.

Please, if possible, don't  send me MS Word or PowerPoint attachments

Yes. I'm running Ubuntu Linux on Insipiron N5110 which has nVidia GT
525M w/ Optimus. There's a bumblebee project which has an installer
that sets up everything you need including a few commands (optirun32
and optirun64) that run programs w/ GPU offloading.

Should be noted that it's real offloading, and not GPU switching.
