This might come as an awful shock to you, but you're not an nvidia
customer.  You didn't purchase anything from nvidia.  You purchased a
notebook from whomever manufactured that notebook (the OEM).  The OEM
is NVIDIA's customer, as they purchased the GPU from them to integrate
into the notebook.  Hence, if you dislike something, you should:
* vote with your wallet
and/or
* complain to the OEM
