I jumped into this as I recalled a similar thread in the FreeBSD section - I do not have a laptop with a hybrid video card.

What I was able to glean from the Arch linux wiki is that a software solution (vgaswitcheroo) is used. I initially suggested that the bios may have a setting but with further searching could find no mention of turning off one of the cards in the bios.

Unless you are willing to attempt to port one of the software solutions mentioned above you are probably out of luck as far as running OpenBSD on this particular laptop.

In general, for a good OpenBSD experience, it is advisable to make OpenBSD supported hardware a criteria for purchase.
