Seems that you have an nVidia 'optimus' setup, so you should look at ironhide/bumblebee-

By the way, its always a good idea to provide information with posts. 'I need to disable my GPU' doesnt help much.......

Yeah, do post some more info, like if it's a laptop or desktop, maybe the model number as well. Do you have the latest BIOS, does the latest BIOS allow for you to disable it ? I mean come on, you gave us nothing.
