Cannot use the dedicated graphics card


As already mentioned that my laptop will use only integrated hd 3000 graphics, while I have a 6770 m on board.

I have good drivers for both (or I guess that since there is no warning in Device Manager).

Whenver I try to play a game well, only the built-in graphics card is available and it doenst go while playing, because I get 20 fps on settings lowest playing while I could play most of the games with up to 60 images per second at the top.

Catalyst Control Center also has a problem during installation because my hardware version no is not supported even if auto detection selected download I need.

This is a common problem with computers laptops alienware as much as I found on the web, but they have all nvidia graphics cards.

If it is of no help: I have a HP Pavilion dv6 6b50eb, my hardware id 6770 m is

PCI (slash) VEN_1002 & DEV_6740 & SUBSYS_3388103C & REV_00


If you are sure about the drivers (?) Check the BIOS configuration to see if any option on VGA as:

Switchable Graphics > fixed or automatic

or similar

  • Aspire V3 - 571 G BSOD when using the dedicated graphics card


    I just got my new laptop, but as the title suggests, whenever I try to run a program that uses the graphics card, it stutters a bit, before finally being BSOD'ing or saying "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver display driver, Version 307.17 not responding and has successfully recovered."

    This happens even with own NVIDIA Control Panel program, where it gives you this small window of the NVIDIA logo rotating. I tried with Minecraft, just to make sure it wasn't this one program.

    Everyone has experienced this before or have any advice? Thank you very much in advance!

    PS: I would have presented a ticket of support on this issue, but it asks me to enter the date of purchase, but it keeps screaming at me that I need to enter "valid a date", even if I use the datePicker bit next to the entry field.

    I ended up sending the laptop in for repair, and apparently it was a faulty motherboard, so they changed it. Everything worked smoothly after that.

  • Satellite P305-S8822 - withdrawal of the dedicated graphics card

    Dear members of the forum,

    probably due to a fault of the graphics card dedicated to my

    Toshiba Satellite P305-S8822 (PSPC4U - 02T 014)
    Processor Intel Core 2 Duo T 5550
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 graphics card
    3072 MB PC5300 DDR2 SDRAM
    200 GB Serial ATA hard drive

    I'm not able to install Windows 7 or an another Version of Windows. Because I don't have the dedicated graphics card (only the onboard integrated graphics card) and found no BIOS option to turn it off, I would like to remove it from the motherboard. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find out whether or not the ATI graphics card is welded (which this would make very difficult). Thanks a lot for your answers and a better idea to solve the problem.

    To be honest, it won't be easy to solve your problem. Why?
    Many people who have mobile machines the same logic valid for desktop computers. Exchange upgrade or hardware components on mobile units is very limited and you can simply swap the GPU or change the BIOS settings.

    If the GPU is faulty in many cases entire motherboard must be replaced. I don't know what other people will write here, but what you can do is contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help or advice what can be done about it.

  • HPE h9-1001de: HPE h9-1001de - broken graphics card can I use the integrated graphics card Intel?

    I bought this PC four years ago (just the version, not CS as in the link):

    The integrated graphics went broken today. Research on the spec Web site I noticed that the Intel's integrated graphics. I won't buy another video card, if there is a graphics processor integrated into the processor.

    Indeed, there are two additional DVI ports; However, they are sealed with a sign "DO NOT REMOVE", and each port is sealed with two screws with a strange format (star with six faces?).

    Why these DVI ports are sealed? Why with this format live strange? I hope that's not for licensing reasons, and that I'm still able to use them as DVI ports...

    Thank you.


    I don't think it is sealed for any other reason than from your PC with a video of the add-on card, they would not people plugging in these ports DVI cables and by calling HP support complaining that the video does not work (because an add on card disables the integrated graphics card).

    Remove your discrete PCIe x 16 graphics card, so the built-in graphics card is enabled, put your hand on the good size torx screwdriver and remove the cover, so you can use the integrated graphics card adapter.

  • Call of duty Black Ops Zombies 2, using the wrong graphics card

    Hello, I recently contacted Activision about the mode of call of duty Black Ops Zombies 2 very agitated and jumpy, like what you would get if you've played online with someone across the world, like really bad lag offline server, now I can play the campaign and multiplayer on the highest graphics settings and have no problem at all just the Zombies mode, even in offline mode. People at Activision back to me and said it could be because the Zombies is using the integrated graphics card Intel CPU and not discrete AMD card, and they said I should contact HP to see if if there is a way to activate manually in Control Panel. I'll link the Forum on Activision's post to read what said the people.

    If it does not work the link, then let me know and I will copy them here for you to see, if you think you need.

    Hi Goochster,

    I tried the link you provided, but it is inaccessible, unless we have a forum of Activision account.

    Normally, all you have to do is right click on an empty spot on the desktop and select Configure switchable graphics.

    Select it gpu performance and click apply. That should leave the AMD GPU default graphics package.

    Put a check mark in the box for the "saving GPU on battery switch' your laptop will not consume so much battery capacity.

  • The use of the dedicated graphics card? Power management works not at all, no difference

    I bought a lenovo g500 and after installing every single player on this site, I decided to test some games from my pc to the laptop.

    Unfortunately, I see the games from the pc do worse than what they do on the pc (and the pc is old) so I think that the amd graphics card are not at all. Can someone explain how to enable the amd radeon video card? BIOS does not help and the CCC (catalyst control center doesn't help either).

    For example:

    I could run borderlands 2 in a little weak graphics on the pc perfectly.

    However on my laptop I can not even reach the main menu because of the very low fps.

    Another example is crysis 2, works perfectly on the graphic means on the pc, runs on 2-4 fps on the laptop.

    Features of the laptop:

    Video card

    Intel HD 4000 (one built-in) + ddr3 2 GB AMD Radeon HD 8570 (128-bit)


    4 GB of ddr3 memory


    Processor Intel Core i7-3612 QM @2.10 ghz

    Specifications of the PC:

    Edit: windows is 64-bit windows 7.

    The solution was to install windows 8 (bought a copy of the professional edition x 64), and then install the drivers from the site. Now everything works as expected. Must have had a problem with the windows 7 x 64 and x 86 drivers... Well, now it works.

    @shauni: tried with borderlands 2, could get 11-13 fps MAX during the game with graphics maxed out regardless of the diet plan, but as soon as I switched to windows 8, the amd video card started working and I now have 40-50 fps (which for me is UBER OPTIMAL). I always get 11-13 fps if I unplug my laptop well.

    Install windows 8 (x 64 in my case)

    NOTE: the drivers on the site are buggy for windows 7 x 64 / x 86. Date today: 8 October 2013.

  • Skyrim - using the integrated graphics card

    My Dell has a built-in Intel and a dedicated Radeon card. For the high range, such as Skyrim 3D games, I obviously prefer to use AMD, but the game is auto detection of the onboard. I've tried everything. I tried all ini files and that you can find no reference to intel or AMD, display or whatever it is. I have manually disabled the card intel in Device Manager, but then the game comes with intel base made graphic, I went into the bios to try and the value of the main graphics card to AMD, but I can't find it anywhere in the bios (which has very very few options) I also used the AMD Control Panel to set the game to run using maximum performance , but continues to use the map intel. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks Matthew

    You cannot set the AMD GPU as primary - it is not connected directly to the screen.  Only the GPU from Intel is directly connected - the AMD GPU is NOT a dedicated GPU.  It's a video coprocessor - all passes of video data by the Intel GPU on its way to the screen, even if it has been processed by the AMD GPU.

    If you selected the AMD GPU for the game by using the catalyst control center, that's all that is needed. No matter where you look under Windows, you will always see the Intel GPU as active.  It is a system controlled by software - controlled material no.

  • Inspiron 3737 - pass fron integrated to the dedicated graphics card


    I got Dell Inspiron 3737 with integrated graphics card Intel 4000 and dedicated Radeon HD8670M graphics card.

    Several weeks ago, I discovered this laptop works only with integrated IntelHD4000 (Win7 x 64). I installed the drivers of the latest GPU to dell, but it's not not to solve the problem. I installed older drivers, but also, there is no problem.

    I decided to reinstall windows.  I installed Windows 7 x 64, all the drivers from the dell site in the order which they suggest. But laptop also only use IntelHD4000. In Device Manager shows two graphics GPU Intel HD Family and AMD Radeon HD8670M. Catalyst, AIDA64 and CPU - Z will find only Intel HD 4000. Reference Dell start diagnostic tools and Dell Online Diagnostics found no no problem (all tests was passed).

    I tried to contact the technical support of Dell and got the following response "what did you want us? You are no longer under warranty and it's your problem! ».

    If I understand correctly the video driver installation and switching between integrated and dedicated graphics are global problem. Solve someone has mentioned the problem and how?

    Hi p ol,

  • Using a dedicated graphics card

    My laptop is Dell Inspiron 15r 5537

    I have a 2 GB AMD 8850 M dedicated graphics memory

    The problem is the more I play the games don't use it but rather use the Integrated INtel HD Graphics 4400.

    Is there a way to force the games to use the AMD card? I tried setting in the Catatlst control center 'High Performance', but it does not work.

    Help, please!

    Thank you.

    Win it in video performance video vs integrated only and is cheaper to build than a system with video true, discreet (something now found only in the high end portable computers - usually $1,500 or higher price points).

  • HP 15-D103TX computer laptop problem: Windows does not detect the dedicated graphics card

    Hi all

    I recently bought a laptop HP 15 - D103TX , which is held responsible for Free on BACK. I have updated my Windows 8 operating system and have installed all the drivers from the HP website. The laptop has dedicated 2 GB Nvidia Geforce 820 M graphics card.

    But when I checked, I found that Windows displays the graphic memory dedicated only 0 MB.

    As you can see in the screenshot, it shows as 0MB dedicated graphics memory.

    Anyone can clear me, upward on this subject? Is it a driver problem, or what is Windows 8 going crazy.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Kind regards


    Okay, I found the solution. In fact, the Haswell Intel i5 processor that my 15 HP D103TX has also comes with an Intel 4600 GPU intregated. So when I do normal tasks, the GPU intregated works, so Windows does not display the NVIDIA GPU 820M, but when I play a game or doing intense graphics work, he switches to the NVIDIA one.

    In fact, it makes sense, because it preserves the battery of the laptop.

    Credit: found this solution on the NVIDIA support forums.

  • Cannot use the Microsoft gift card.

    It gave me a gift card from Microsoft when buying my Surface at Staples Barrie (Canada), and when I logged on my account to apply the $25 gift card was said that it was invalid in my country.

    Attempts to contact Microsoft surface by CAT earlier and chat window was impossible to use, because I couldn't expand window Tech... SO could not see when they met or what they were saying.  Finally, tried to send it to my mail, and I saw that they responded with a Question, presumably while I had spent.
    Talk about frustrating...
    Staples was unnecessary, saying they were talking Tech was difficult to contact by phone...
    The gift card has an expiration...
    Someone else to Canada encounter the same problem, and if yes, how did you get your %25 card gift applied to your account.


    Make sure that the date and time are correct on the computer.

    (a) check the Date/time setting by selecting the tile office and then left click on the time in the corner.

    (b) click on change date and time. And then check that the time zone is correct and the time of the internet tab has the ability to synchronize with the time server Internet.
