I cant change from CPU to GPU in blender 2.66.3

Got a new laptop. just for blender. My graphics card is a NIVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M graphics with 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory. Changed computer device to cuda in the blender user preferences. However there is no option to switch to GPU. Working in windows 8 and blender v2.66.3 Help.

Is there an option right above that drop down? By default the only option will be "none" but if you have CUDA up and running you should be able to click the CUDA option then GPU will be available in the drop down.

Yes it does have the cuda option and it is on, but still no option.
