Switchable graphics with Intel HD 3000 and Radeon HD 7610M

Q: Switchable graphics with Intel HD 3000 and Radeon HD 7610M

Alright so I've got a serious problem here, my manufacturer which is ASUS in my case will NOT be supporting this graphcis card or the computer itself so I'm left out in the dark.
I have tried with everything and I came to the conclusion that modded drivers works the best which still is pretty bad(switchable Graphics profiles are not saved - Adding Photoshop for example today results that in a week it will be wiped out and the performance will be zero)

The generic AMD drivers does not work, the HP drivers works 50-50, I can Control Everything with switchable Graphics
except for the manual program adding and the modded leshcat drivers are not of my liking.

Considering the fact that AMD supports ENDURO on the whole Radeon HD 7000M series I would expect it to work on the generic drivers.

So if anyone got anything that could help my situation I would gladly hear you out.

I'm thinking that using the modded drivers will be my last desperate move.

P.S. I'm also not using the newest Intel Drivers as they are reported to cause problems

A:AMD Radeon HD/Intel switchable graphics

flcph2015 Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the situation is that you should not have done the Win10 Upgrade.  Their Upgrade tool does a really poor job of detecting switchable graphics prior to the updrade, and as a result, folks like you end up with machines that are no longer fully functional.  Same thing happened to me. With switchable graphics, the only working drivers come from the OEMs that make the machines, because the hardware is customized, so to have to be the drivers.  MS does not supply these drivers, nor do the video card makers. So, without HP Win10 drivers for your PC, you're stuck with only two outcomes:1) Keep Win10 and struggle with the graphics problem2) Return your PC to the original OS. I chose the second because I prefer a PC with an older OS where everything worked, to a PC with a new OS, where some things do not work.

A:AMD Radeon HD/Intel switchable graphics

Marko91 HP laptops, especially the older Win7 machines, often came with two different graphics chips -- and Intel and then, either an AMD or Nvidia.  This was known as Switchable Graphics or Hybrid Graphics.  You ran using the Intel chip most of the time, but when you needed extra graphics power, like in Gaming, the PC automatically switched over to using the AMD or Nvidia graphics chip.Problem is, this requires special graphics drivers to work, and while those came preinstalled on the Win7 laptops, those drivers simply do not exist for Win10.  Those drivers are not available from Intel, AMD, or Nvidia.  A way to tell if your PC has two different graphics chips is to look in Device Manager under Display Adapters.  If there are two different adapters listed, one Intel and one AMD/Nividia, then you have this problem -- and if you force an upgrade to Win10, you will have serious graphics problems and your machine will not work. Please follow these directions to find the detailed product number for your laptop:  Finding Your HP Product Model Number | HP® Customer Support With that information, I can see if there are HP Win10 vide drivers for your laptop. We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

Your PC is a desktop, not a notebook. Desktop PCs do not have switchable graphics. That is a high-end notebook feature. The Omen 15 has it. When a video card is installed, the Intel HD graphics is disabled and the video you have is proviided by the video card only. Which specific games did you try to run? There is a website called Can I run it? that willl give you a report on the hardware in your PC and specific gameshttp://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri If your PC won't run specific games it could be because of the entry level graphics and Intel CPU that is installed in the motherboard. Your desktop PC is not meant for gaming. It is an entry level productivity desktop PC.

Hi, my laptop is overheating and wasting power because it is always running my ATI Radeon mobility graphics card. I have switchable graphics, and I want the computer to ALWAYS start up using Intel HD graphics.

I cannot find ANY settings to make Intel HD the default graphics card.

I have tried uninstalling ATI radeon graphics card. It always reinstalls AND SWITCHES to it on startup.

How can I make Intel HD the primary graphics card(PREFERRED), or completely remove ATI radeon so it never reinstalls the drivers after I have uninstalled it?


A:Disable ATI radeon switchable graphics or use Intel HD by default

There would be an option in your BIOS to disable/enable onboard graphic chip. Also look for something along the lines 'Init Display first' (though these differ bios to bios) and select 'Onboard' or similar equivalent option.

You can also disable your radeon card through Device manager. Open Start menu, type 'Device Manager' and select it from the list displayed. Look for the card>right click>disable.

If unsure, post a screenshot and we'll work you out through the steps.

I just reformatted a Samsung laptop and am trying to get it all loaded and patched back up again. The laptop has a AMD Radeon HD 7400M graphics adapter. So after getting it up and running (at a low resolution obviously), I downloaded and installed the latest AMD graphics driver w/ the Catalyst Control Center thingy. Now the display is at the native 1600x900, but Device Manager shows both the AMD graphics adapter and Intel HD Graphics 3000 adapter.

Why are there two listed? I tried removing the Intel adapter earlier and the display went all wonky back to the previous 1024x768 resolution.

I'm the type of computer user who likes to get rid of stuff that's not needed. So are both graphics adapters really needed?

A:Why do I need Intel HD 3000 graphics with AMD Radeon HD?

The two graphics systems are needed to support the hybrid system used on many of today's laptops, the Intel is used for general low graphics intensive applications and the AMD is used for certain higher requirements such as games. The purpose of the dual system is to conserve power when possible and only use the power for the HQ graphics when it is actually needed

I hope everybody can help this.
This morning, i upgraded my Intel HD Graphics 3000 because some programs force me to update it. But, I don't know why, after restaring my laptop, I see that the graphics has changed from Radeon to HD Graphics. You know, HD Graphics is only have 64 MBs of its RAM. Different far away from my Radeon that has 1024 MBs of RAM.

And when I try to playing some games, it says, "Your Graphics card doesn't meet the system requirement". It is very sucks. And then, checking the Device Manager it doesn't show my Radeon graphics anymore.

I want to change my graphics back to Radeon, but can't. I've tried every step from the internet and still not work. There is no message something like this in my desktop: "Switchable Graphics Driver". And every start, the Catalyst Control Center says: "Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics card. Please update your AMD graphics driver or enable your AMD adapter using Displays Manager.". I have followed this from internet:

Click "Start."
Click "Control Panel."

I bought a HP Elite 8460p notebook, and it comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000 and a dedicated AMD Radeon HD 6470M.
It came preinstalled with Windows 7. And I quickly removed it and installed Windows 8.1 pro from scratch, I formed that hard drive, but not the recovery drive.
After I installed with 8.1 I noticed that the dedicated graphics card was not installed and the drivers aren't there. I tried Snappy Driver Installer, I tried the driver from HP for it. I've even tried suggested route from hp's forum, AMD Radeon HD 6470m Driver for Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit -"Hp ... - HP Support Forum - 3073197

But I am unable to find those two drivers with those versions anywhere listed on the HP forum where some users state that that technique/solution does work.
I'm not sure what todo, I really don't want to go to Windows 7. As I have purchased Windows 8.1 Professional.
I've ran speccy, and it does not show a second graphics card. I see no options anywhere on this computer for switchable graphics, and I do not see anything in device manager installed or missing.

Can someone please help me out?

Hi there.My issue is related to my switchable graphics option. I have an Intel hd 3000 and an AMD radeon (I'm not sure of the exact model as I can't search for it as my machine is currently stuck in a system restore loop so I'm having ti use my phone right now).There is one game I use regularly which, for some reason or another, is incompatible with my Intel graphics chip so I had previously used the right click on my desktop menu where I would select switchable graphics, and then manually allocate that particular game to my AMD chip rather than my Intel one.When the game updated yesterday, it reverted back to my Intel chip for some reason and when I right clicked on my desktop, the option to change it had disappeared. I looked on this forum for an answer to my issue and came upon this answer: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Switchable-Graphics-Options-Missing/td...Which appeared to fit my problem exactly. However, when I did as the instructions told me to and uninstalled both of my graphics devices and their drivers, and then rebooted, followed by installing the file linked to in the answer and rebooting again, this resulted in my Intel 3000 disappearing entirely from my device manager list, and my AMD chip being stopped by windows as it has reported an error.I tried reinstalling the previous driver linked to the AMD chip, but that did nothing at all.

Hi guys i need help.

I have an Acer Aspire E1-572G (Windows 8.1 64-bit OS) with Intel HD Graphics 4400 and AMD Radeon HD 8670M. When i run games however, my laptop uses Intel card instead of my AMD card.

Things i've tried:
Setting application to High Performance in Switchable GraphicsReinstalling AMD/Intel Drivers from both AMD/Intel sites and Acer sites (Used a proper uninstaller to remove all files)Disabling my Intel Graphic Card results in my laptop using Microsoft Basic Rendering DriverUninstalling my Intel Graphic Card also results in using Microsoft Basic Rendering DriverUsing CPU-Z shows AMD Radeon HD 8670M but most information are missing (unknown or 0) unlike Intel Graphics which displays everything. Upon clicking sensor, all my temperatures are set to 0 (which means it's not in use)Using dxdiag shows my Intel Graphics as default driver, not AMD.

I've tried everything i could possibly do so i'm seeking help from experts here. I've seen articles which stated that Windows 8.1 are buggy with Switchable Graphics and may cause problems like these. Is that true?

A:Switchable graphics doesn't use my AMD Radeon HD 8670M

For dual mismatched GPU's like Intel/AMD I recommend using the laptop manufacturers drivers, over doing two separate driver installs. The laptop manufacturers driver is custom tailored for your dual switchable graphics. Which driver are you using now? I haven't had any issues in Windows 8.1 as far as my switchable graphics goes. Mine are AMD/AMD though so I can use a driver right from AMD's web site. I get all kinds of ccc has stopped working messages in Windows 10 though.

After i installed windows and all the drivers, my problems started; i would get extremely long boot times, after the windows logo, a black screen would show up, no messages, nothing, and after around 7-10 minutes, it would finally boot. Once it booted, windows would be quite slow for around 5 minutes after it booted, and then it would normalize.

A:ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Graphics (switchable)

Evgeniy64 That's probably NOT going to work because the ONLY drivers that will work on PCs with Switchable Graphics are those provided by the OEM -- in this case, HP.  If HP does not have Win10 drivers for your model PC, the Upgrade will be a disaster. If you can, please follow the directions in this link to find the detailed product number of your PC: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03754824?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001If that is not possible, then look for a sticker on the PC that includes the product number and post that here.  If the battery is removable, the sticker is likely to be in the battery compartment. With this information, I can check to see if there are HP Win10 drivers for your PC. We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

So I just purchased this new Acer laptop.
It has a Radeon HD 6650M, and an i7-2360QM with HD Graphics 3000. The Graphics processor within the i7 is the primary VGA and I cant get the computer to utilize the Radeon. Its supposed to be switchable with the catalyst drivers to run off the i7 for increased battery life, and the Radeon when pluged into an outlet. I've downloaded the Drivers off of asus' website and that did nothing. And when I open The Catalyst Control Center, it gives me the option to use "High Performance Graphics" this of course does nothing. The computer still runs off of the i7.

I contacted Asus technical support via online chat, and they had no idea what they were talking about, sying something along the lines of "You need to take out your new AMD card and put in another and see if that works." I told them several times that I had a laptop and no option of switching graphics cards. so I'm hoping someone here can at least guide me in the right direction.

Since I still might RMA this laptop, I don't want to do anything too crazy to get access to the Radeon. But I will accept crap battery life if that means I get to at least use the Radeon.
The Catalyst Driver version is 8.813.1.0

A:Acer Laptop: Switchable Graphics using i7 & AMD Radeon

First, I suggest that you restore your original driver setup from when you first got this laptop while you perform tests of this new graphics system. In recent years the graphics drivers for both video chips had to be installed together as a package, and installing the stand-alone driver for the AMD or nVidia chip screwed things up for some folks.

That said, please be aware that I just started reading about these new graphics chips this week. I am hardly up to speed and certainly no expert.

But it is my impression, based upon this article here (nVidia Optimus, I know - but AMD and nVidia tend to mirror each other in technology):
Nvidia Unveils Optimus Switchable Graphics Technology | PCWorld
it sounds to me like the more powerful graphics chip does not "kick in" until you are actually doing something that requires more graphics power.

Here is the AMD article:
AMD Switchable Graphics Technology
While it is not clear, it could be assumed that they are doing the same thing.

Not having complete control over my computers settings would drive me right out of my mind! If these new graphics chips only run on automatic that is a real negative for me.

Let's see if others with more experience with these chips will chime in. I think this thread would be better in the Graphics Cards section for best exposure to the people who might know. I'll see what I can do about that.

From what I can tell from the Dell documentation, you can only use one or the other and if the optional video, such as you have, is installed that is the default.

The Dell BIOS is protected and any attempt to modify the Dell BIOS will most likely cause it to Corrupt. There is no recovery from a corrupted BIOS on a Dell, the ONLY option is to replace the motherboard.

Device manager shows that driver has installed properly but when I switch to high performance for any game, it(game) stops responding but game can start without any problem in Intel HD 4000 graphics i.e I cannot use my dedicated graphics for which I bought this laptop!
Also, there in no driver for blueooth. Specificly Ralink RT 3290 Bluetooth driver. I found driver for this hardwere but not suitable for windows 8.1.

Good Afternoon guys. I have a problem with my laptop. Im trying play a few different games and emulators and for some reason they arent detecting my AMD 6770m GPU even though I assigned those games and emulators to High Preformance in the Catalyst Control Center. Of course Ive searched the web and HP's forums for answers but the only thing Ive seen was to install some custom drivers (which I prefer not to install).  So my question is. Is it ok to install the latest drivers for my Intel and AMD GPU's from their own websites instead of installing the ones provided from HP? Would that solve my problem? Im asking this because I bought this laptop specifically to play my favorite games and the AMD 6770m supports those games. But honestly whats the point of having this better GPU if I cant use it?

A:Unable to install AMD/Intel Switchable Graphics Driver

Installing generic drivers from Intel and AMD solved the problem. The drivers given on HP site are not working. This is a shame that HP cannot specify correct drivers for its own products on their site.

Hey guys. I recently bought an Acer Travelmate 5740. I didn't realise how bad the 4500MHD graphics were and I have heard about external graphics cards and 'switchable graphics'.

I did a few googles but obviously I am searching the wrong stuff. I have a chipset that allows switchable graphics, so is there a way of upgrading my graphics to something better? I don't mind spending a bit of money to get a lot more bang for my buck and I have heard ATI has external graphics that sync with internal ones or something.

Would I be able to upgrade this card (or remove it for a better one) could I pay a professional to do that for me, and where would I buy the new GPU?

Thanks for helping.

A:Intel 4500MHD Switchable graphics/external card?

Welcome to SevenForums.

I have heard about external graphics cards and 'switchable graphics'.

Here is an article on basically what "switchable" Graphics in Laptops is all about. Nvidia automates switchable mobile graphics with Optimus - TechSpot News

I realize this is about Nvidia but it also should apply with any combination of GPU's.

I have a chipset that allows switchable graphics, so is there a way of upgrading my graphics to something better?

No not really since the GPU chips are soldered into your motherboard. So even if you could find someone capable of removing the 4500MHD chip he would also need to find and purchase a higher quality GPU chip that most likely wouldn't be able to simply be re-soldered into the old chips socket, then their could be all kinds of compatibility issues I would think.
Basically your stuck with what you have.

I have only been able to find this setup that allows for the use of a full size PCI-e graphics card.

The only video I could find on how it is setup http://www.externalgraphicscard.com/

This is really not a solution for your issue since this requires a laptop with a PCMCIA port, the MagmaBox1, additional LCD and a full size better graphic's card.

Also below this thread you'll see other threads on your graphics chip and also switchable graphics information.
Hope this helps answer some of your questions and ... Read more

Hello folks!

One of my friends having a problem with her laptop's switchable graphics (Intel & AMD Radeon) driver on Windows 8 OS. She wants to switch to Windows 8 from 7, but had issue with graphics driver. I also tried to help, downloaded the latest graphics driver for HP Pavilion G6 1215-et (64bit) named "SP59147" from the main site of HP, installed correctly but it says "WDDM 1.0.blablaba" on device manager, and shows its model as Radeon HD7000 with a caution sign..

I also searched the problem on the net a lot, but could not find anything, neither from HP support pages. Tried to install old but main driver from Win 7, it worked, but still had problems while switching, the game and videos didnt work well, also laptop heated itself a lot. Between all of these steps and the others, used Driver Fusion to clean/erase package remains, and restarted at each step.

Does any of you has a solution for that HD 6470M on Windows 8? Any idea/suggestions about it? All comments are welcomed!

Unfortunately, at this moment the R series doesn't offer a switchable graphics option between the integrated graphics chipset (Intel HD Graphics 3000) and the dedicated ATI 6450M.

Myself I have a R850-10V model with an i5-2410M and there is no option in BIOS for such a selection, which would help a lot to increase the battery life by using only the integrated graphics for example.
Could we see in the future a bios upgrade which would enable this integrated graphics?

It's a shame because all the other important producers (HP, Lenovo, Acer) which use ATI 6450/6470/6490M solution for integrated graphics, updated their bios in order to allow a switchable graphics option.

Thank you.

Very good question but on the wrong place. This is user-to-user forum and you will not get some official statement here.

Hi, I recently got new "gaming" laptop - HP Pavilion 15-bc200nc. Having issues with GPUs - mostly when my external monitor is plugged in via HDMI cable ( most of the time I am using external monitor). The most annoying for me is that I can`t fullscreen videos in windows 10 when I`am working on my external monitor.  I can do full screen only when I lower the resolution on my external from 1920 x 1080 to 1768 x 992. Then sometimes when I am running a program or game and try to watch videos the video freezes. Device manager is showing that my external monitor is using only NVIDIA GPU and my original laptop display is using Intel - I feel like GPUs are somehow glitching between each other. My external monitor - asus vx228h Did a lot of research about it all over the internet and couldn`t find the solution. Installed new drivers for both NVIDIA and Intel, downgraded drivers.Tried to downgrade to win7 with no success due to no drivers for OS win7 ( very dissapointing btw but thats another of my forum posts  - http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-Pavilion-Gaming-15-bc200nc-do... ). Any suggestions how to solve this problem?  Is there a way to completely disable Intel GPU and let laptop using ONLY Nvidia on both original laptop display and external monitor? - I found here on forums that one guy managed to do it but didn`t provide the guide. Thank you!

You have to sometimes take what people say they do here with a grain of salt. No it is switchable graphics and you cannot completely disable the integrated Intel video. You might try a different HDMI cable if you have one.

I recently ugraded to Win10 (although I had the same problem on Win7 as well). I cannot access my AMD Radeon HD 7400m and I am instead force to use the integrated Intel Graphics HD 3000. I have already tried reinstalling the drivers, disabling etc, nothing seems to work. I was told it's because they (AMD and Intel graphics devices) are designed by the manufacturer to work together, Intel 3000 doesn't support Win10, and should therefore revert back to Win7. However, I am running Win10 on Intel 3000 right now, so I don't know what to believe anymore. My questions are: 1. Is it true that the two graphics cards should work together and I'm getting blocked to one because the other is not compatible with my OS? (If so, how am I still running Win10 on Intel 3000?) 2. If this is indeed the case, and changing the OS is my only choice - how do I get Win7 back? Using the key from behind my battery seems to not work for downloading Win7, it says the key corresponds to a pre-installed version, contact the manufacturer for software recovery options. 3. If this is not the case, how to I get access to AMD instead of built-in Intel? (e.g. uninstalling Intel from device manager doesn't cause AMD to take over, but I am instead moved to a Basic Microsoft Display...) Thanks!

I'm aware of the other thread regarding AMD drivers, however, my hardware is just not cooperating.

I haven't found anyone else with this issue, so I'll try to give as much data as possible:

Thanks to XDleader555 @ Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000, I was able to get the basic Intel GPU functioning.

Here is the HWInfo64 showing some of my specs:
And here is the problematic Device Manager:
I try to update the driver manually and choose the folder from the latest AMD drivers

However it just says the drivers are already up to date
And I get this vague error, and there are thousands of impertinent articles about it, which is why I'm posting on this forum.
I tried to run the AMD Installer provided by Acer, which resulted in this (ran as W7 compatible, so this is perfectly fine):
However the installation failed with this error:
And trying to run AMD Installer for Windows 8 bears no fruit:
Hopefully someone will be able to assist me.

There were 4gb of DDR3 pre-installed memory. Then I replaced them with 16gb as you can see above. In order to use new memory I should re-install windowsbecause the pre-installed OS couldn't boot into windows environment. I re-installed windows 7 pro x64 and then everything seemed to be right. However everything changed when I had to install graphics drivers. I tried every method and every site (hp, intel, windows) and most of graphic drivers versions. The problem is that most times windows crash and reboot just after welcome screen (sometimes before it) of some seconds later. Without graphics driver, using Standard vga adapter everything goes fine but the screen quality is too low and I can't use applications that use graphic hardware accelaration. I don't remember if specs of my refurbished EliteBook included extra discrete graphics card like other EliteBook products. Besides device manager doesn't detect something like this.

I recently purchased a 6460B for DJ'ing purposes. It has a Intel HD Graphics 3000 Sandy Bridge Graphics system. Apparently there are issues with this graphics system, a bug which Intel has never fixed. I quote from the software manufacturer I am looking at using; "WARNING! Some variants of the Intel HD Graphics Device have a known bug within the associated device drivers that may cause serious instability issues (crashes) while attempting to playback videos utilizing DirectShow video playback technology. If you intend to utilize CompuHost on a computer that incorporates such a device we strongly recommend that you first install the Evaluation version and give it a thorough test drive to ensure reliability prior to purchase!" Apparently this issue is somewhat widespread in the Intel HD Graphics line, regardless of dual monitor use or not as the DirectShow failure is apparent on even single screen use. The screen flickers constantly or just doesn't show any images. Is Intel planning on correcting this error? It can be seen in Compuhost, any version and Swift Elite V4. The laptop has 4gb RAM and a 500gb hard drive. I should also add that although failures are different, the failure of the HD 3000 is consistent when it comes to DirectShow. The Laptop is running the most recent BIOS F63a and I did the F61 to update the video firmware. The problem was present before F61, during F61 and after F61, and F63. Obviously this problem has not been addressed by Intel during ... Read more

anyone knows how the HD 2500 compares to the 3000 and 4000? I'm mostly looking for improved video transcoding compared to my Pentium G620 and don't really need the "gaming" graphics capabilities. But I haven't been able to find any information as to how the HD 2500 compares.

The fact that 2500 < 3000 is not really a good sign though...

A:Intel HD graphics 2500 vs 3000/4000?

the 3000 and 4000 are pretty superior of course the actual speed they function at will depend on which intel cpu it's paired with.
From what I've seen they actually are superior to even some of the higher dollar dedicated graphics cards in the way of transcoding. (if you are a gamer you would want to consider the dedicated, but if all you want is transcoding you are good)

However, you will only get the benefit if the software you are using supports the new quick sync features.
Intel? Quick Sync Video

In the instances where your software does support the features the 3k and 4k are twice as fast easily...
