  1. You'll hate me for this but I'm afraid you would need the BIOS to make that change if it includes an option to disable the internal graphics card but very few laptops can do that.

    What settings do you have in "what to do when I close the lid" in Control Panel>Power Options?

    Another answer to the problem would be to slave the two hard drives into another system and use cloning software to transfer an image of the 80Gb drive and transfer it to the 500Gb.
