HP Pavilion 2307tx g6: lack of switchable Graphics Options

Prouct: HP Pavilion 2307tx g6
OS: Windows 7 ultimate (64 bit)

Product number: D4B15PA
Graphics card: Intel Graphics HD 4000/Radeon HD Graphics 7670 M

Hello. I need a help or instructions of my situation. I have a problem, look for the switchable graphics options for my laptop. The original operating system of this is Windows 8 64-bit. I changed my operating system in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. After you have installed the necessary drivers for my laptop, I noticed that the switchable graphics options configure is missing, even the AMD Catalyst Control Center. I installed two drivers properly after installation of Windows 7, but AMD graphics options is missing. I tried to update my driver AMD by installing the latest driver, subsequently software Catalyst through the utility of automatic detection, but after installation, my laptop screen became large, and the option "Configure Switchable Graphics", said that the driver I have installed is not compatible with my laptop. I opened the system restore back to a point where I have not installed yet. I'm not sure if I should install the AMD driver that I found here in the HP drivers. If anyone knows how I can reinstall the driver of my need of system, I would be grateful.

Thank you




Because your laptop is the switchable graphics, the driver only graphics that you can use is the HP one.

I don't think that HP has linked the AMD/Intel switchable graphics driver to the correct address to the care of your laptop and driver page.

Uninstall the graphic drivers you have already installed and restart... but instead, try this one g6t-2000.

This package provides the AMD graphics driver high definition (HD) and Catalyst Control Center for models of laptop computers that are running an operating system supported. For laptops equipped with switchable graphics modes, this package contains the drivers for the two graphics (GPU). Switchable graphics allow users to switch between a graphical power mode (normally used under the power of the battery) and a mode of graphics performance. If the video output high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver.

    Your laptop is dynamic switchable graphics only (the PC automatically decides which gpu to use depending on the load on the gpu).

    There is no fixed graphics mode in your model.

  • Switchable graphics option Bios Update Dv7 4100 series for hd 5650 m driver

    Y at - it another version of bios for my laptop? (I've included a few specifications of my laptop at the end of my post)

    I heard an update of the bios of other series that could control your switchable graphics. But my notbook integrates the latest version of the bios that I can download (v3.5, I think).  And this version does not include the switchable chart control.

    Why I ask this question? Because with switchable graphics disabled, you should be able to update your video card driver. With this driver I could play new games like far cry 3 or other new games with the quality, I should be able to play.

    My laptop:

    -CPU: i5 M460

    -Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard 144 b

    If you try to update the driver from AMD, AMD, be sure to do so only with the card on and not off AMD. If turned off switchable graphics, AMD map will not be displayed and the Intel card having for result the error you received.

    On a side note, AMD recommends sticking with the drivers from the manufacturer of the laptop.

  • HP Pavilion g6-1313sh Notebook: dual Radeon graphics card - cannot enter bios mode fixed


    I recently bought this laptop apart from my friend and is struggling with this for a few weeks now.

    I was on the forum every day for a few hours without result.

    so, my laptop is HP Pavilion 1313sh g6 with Win7. I have the latest version of the bios, so I could put my gpu bios mode set instead of dynamic.

    Here's the problem... When my setting was dynamic, I got the "switchable graphics" option and I could put the preset by application. as many people pointed out, it really does not work, so I went back to fix.

    This option is now missing. so I tried in CCC, following this: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03048374 in the fixed bit.

    It is, I have no change option... I only get the graphics card AMD Radeon Dual 'activate' or disable... but not the button to switch permanently to the highest performance card... checked in CCC, it recognize my 2 cards under hardware (1st HD6520G 2nd is Hd7400M).

    I start to tear up the rest of my hair. Please can someone tell me what I miss? as said, the most recent drivers from the site is all settled.

    Thank you!

    Hi @SmokeyJohnny ,

    Thank you for visiting the Forums HP's Support and welcome. I looked in your question about your HP Pavilion g6-1313sh Notebook and issues with graphics switchable. You can do a System Restore. System Restore will help if something is automatically updated and wasn't on the laptop.

    When running a system restore note remove all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices because they can cause problems.

    If this does not resolve the problem would be to uninstall the graphics drivers listed in your device manager. Reboot the laptop and it must be reinstalled the proper drivers. Yours is the AMD Radeon HD 6520 + 7450 Mr. here are your drivers if you need.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you.

  • Switchable Graphics and ATI Graphics Driver disappear (BIOS update)

    Then the other day, that HP has insisted on the behaviour of one of its annoying BIOS updates on my Pavilion dv7.

    Before the update, I was able switchable graphics and could pass the ATI Mobility Radeon 4250 something the 5650 (I'm sure I have these numbers). in any case, now, a few days after the update (which I believe I installed on 19 January), I noticed that my switchable graphics options have disappeared, as well as my option driver ATI Mobility Radeon 5650... large. So now games graphics look significantly bad and slow because I can't spend to the best driver. Thanks, HP.

    So, the question is how to get back my switchable graphics and other driver? I was looking around and found some - related posts that can be useful for people who seek to answer this question, but aren't really help me:




    If you answer this, please try to keep it in easy English and avoid a lot of abbreviations, I won't understand. Just consider me like a fool when it comes to installing and uninstalling the drivers and try to make simple instructions. Thank you very much!

    Hey man, idk if you are still working on it, but I have the solution.  Basically, HP has two updates for each laptop model; one for laptops with integrated graphics card only and another for laptops with switchable graphics.  Unfortunately, the driver for laptop with integrated graphics card only has been the default driver in this update.  Instead of trying to reinstall the older driver, just install the new correct driver.  To do this, follow these steps:

    1. go on http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

    2. the website can automatically detect what dv7 you have.  Just click on the button "start detection".  It will ask you to download something, but its ok.  Do it.  Then just click on 'continue' and let it detect your system.

    3. There should be a screen that has 'Detected list of products' on him.  Under where it is said that your model is, there must be a link that says "software and driver downloads".  Until it clicks.

    4. in the next screen, you will need to choose your operating system.  Select it and click "next".

    5. a list appears with all the drivers for different systems.  Expand the category that says 'pilot -"graphic  There will be several drivers (one being that shitty laptop with integrated graphics card only and another for great laptops with switchable graphics).  Read the descriptions of each and it is made for laptops with switchable graphics.  Download the right one.

    Once download you, you will need to restart your laptop.  When it starts up, it will be like new.

  • Satellite Pro R850-10V - switchable graphics ATI 6450 M / Intel HD3000

    Unfortunately, right now the R series does not offer a switchable graphic option between the integrated graphics chipset (Intel HD Graphics 3000) and him dedicated ATI 6450 M.

    I have a model R850-10V with an i5 - 2410M and there is no option in the BIOS to such a choice, who would help a lot to increase the autonomy of the battery using only the onboard graphics for example.
    Could see us in the future upgrade of bios that would allow this integrated graphics?

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

    Thank you.

    > Could see us in the future upgrade of bios that would allow this integrated graphics?
    Very good question, but on the wrong place. This is the forum user and you will not get an official statement here.

    Let's see if Toshiba is going to change anything, and perhaps offer some update BIOS.

  • I have upgraded to Windows 8. How can I get the switchable graphics to work?

    Windows 8 was released a little over a month and several users have had the desire to upgrade their laptop for Windows 8.

    However, the laptop doesn't have any Windows 8 at HP software, because it is not yet approved for Windows 8.

    This usually results in video cards being turned on so only used Intel graphics card.  Some symptoms of this is the laptop is running more hot than usual and the battery life is significantly short due to these two cards being fed at the same time.

    This isn't an official solution to this problem, but it worked for me and others.

    1. install the HP software framework found here.

    Credit for finding this link goes to CherylG.

    2. then, uninstall all ATI/AMD software through programs and features.

    3. go to www.hp.com and select Support and drivers at the top.

    4. Select software downloads and the pilot, then enter your product model or product number.

    5. Select the most recent operating system corresponding to your installation of Windows 8 bit architecture.  For example, Windows 7 64 bit for 64-bit Windows 8.

    6 download the ATI graphics card driver.

    7. run the file once it is finished downloading.

    8. let the finished extraction process, but cancel the installation when you are prompted to continue after extraction.  Note where this is extracted to.  By default, this should be c:\swsetup\.

    9. here, there should be a setup.exe to install the ATI driver.  Right-click it and select troubleshoot compatibility.

    10 follow the troulbeshooter of compatibility and select the suggested fixes.  On one screen, there will be a button of test program.  Click here to begin the installation.

    11. follow the installation and it must successfully complete.

    12. Once completed, right click on the desktop to check that configures it with the switchable graphics option is listed.

    Once this done, switchable graphics should work fine on most systems.  This translates into reduced heat and charge the battery lasting longer.

    While this may not work for everyone, he worked for many users.

    I hope this helps.

    I updated all the drivers to the latest version, but the problem remains.

    Hi EdwinG,

    Here is a link to Hp driver page. I recommend you to uninstall the drivers and then go to the link to install the last right of HP.

    To get your question more exposure I suggest you post in the trade forums since it is a commercial product. You can do it at Business Forum.

  • Switchable graphics Vostro 3560 energy consumption


    There is a problem with the graphics switchable my laptop Vostro 3560 (Windows 7, x 64 OS). Whenever I put the laptop to sleep/hibernate and resume both AMD 7670 M and graphics cards intel HD 4000 are on. This configuration generates a lot of heat and drains the battery quickly. To check what is the card on, I used HWiNFO64. To activate the AMD 7670 M graphics card off I have to start and close the application that is configured in Hi Performance mode in switchable graphics options (app dedicated to run on AMD 7670 M). No whitch application running in the background is not configured to run in High Performance mode. I discovered that stop AMD external events Utility service solves this problem, but then I lose the option of switching works only HD 4000. Is anyone having this problem and knows how to fix? I have updated drivers and BIOS, but it does not solve this problem. Thanks for the replies.

    Find a solution by creating a file amdsw.bat with the command: NET START "AMD external events Utility | NET STOP "AMD external events Utility". Now when I need AMD graphics card I run the amdsw.bat file that starts AMD external events Utility service to switch to AMD card. Before you put the laptop to sleep, I run the same file of amdsw.bat again to stop the service.

  • Graphics options for non-gamer non-artiste type

    I'm trying to set up a new T400. I do not play games on my laptop, or use Photoshop or video editing or something like that.

    However, I like the new windows to open quickly and I like a scroll to be fast on the web pages and Office documents, etc. Also, I would like to things like YouTube to work in the best conditions.

    Should I just go for the graphic option cheaper or options more money will give me better performance for my admittedly boring use?

    Hi steve02476,

    Welcome to the forum of Lenovo

    I wouldn't say your boring use... remember it is a Pad of thinking. Since when is using your brain, boring? I digress...

    I highly recommend the Intel graphics card integrated into you. It's pretty much fast for something other than a heavy-duty 3D (like the game or CAD). It uses much less energy, which means that it works more fees, your ThinkPad runs more silent and your battery lasts longer. And Intel has the best driver open source support Linux, if that's important to you.

    The switchable graphics option is interesting, but the current implementation is wrong: I think that you must pass to the discrete chip for a digital video output via the dock's DVI port.

    See you soon,.


  • Switchable graphics after installing new window. No ATI driver on the site of HP for Pavilion dm4 1140EZ


    I had a problem with the black screen after logo window at startup. To solve it, I installed fresh windows 7 on my laptop Pavilion dm4 1140EZ. My laptop has Intel HD and ATI mobility Radeon 5000 graphics cards. On the HP site I downloaded the driver for Intel, but it lacked ATI driver for my product.  I went to the AMD site and downloaded catalyst control + driver for my ATI card but Intel graphics stops working correctly and graphic ATI did not work as well as on the Device Manager it has shown the device is functioning properly.

    After uninstall of Catalyst Manager Intel graphic it was OK. How should I me switchable graphics? My laptop is warming further than it used to be I think may be due to works on Intel graphics only the video quality is very bad. Kindly help me to install progressively switchable graphics.

    You can use the recovery media to reinstall the graphics driver AMD. Never install the Catalyst Control Center and the AMD driver. The graphics driver for a laptop with switchable graphics is specially coded to provide this functionality. Do not install the Intel driver separately because it would cause the feature switchable graphics to stop working. AMD owns ATI.

    Find the graphics card AMD driver software, click in the box to the left and then click on install.

  • Switchable Graphics (AMD Radeon HD 7670) problem in Hp Pavilion g6 2305tx-windows 8.1


    I would like to draw your kind attension to this serious problem, which I do face with AMD Mobility Radeon HD7670 driver for windows 8.1

    I use Hp pavilion 2305tx g6 that has double graphics. I bought it 6 months ago and it cost about 60 grand in Bangladesh.

    I was using Windows 7 and everything was fine. I could play every game I want, but after upgrade to 8.1 window, I am facing this switchable graphics problem. Device manager shows that driver was installed correctly but when I go to high performance for any game, it (game) is not responding but game can start without any problem in IE graphics Intel HD 4000 I cannot use my dedicated graphics card which I bought this laptop!

    Here too, no driver to blueooth. Specifically the driver Ralink RT 3290 Bluetooth. I found the driver for this hardware, but not suitable for windows 8.1. Okey BT is not a big problem, but what about the graphics driver? What is Hp? sleep? Where the drivers updated for Windows 8.1? How long I have to wait? As I brought it BDT 60 grand I have right to ask for updated driver and I want to that they as soon as POSSIBLE.

    Again, I chart AMD Radeon HD 7670 in my laptop and driver is correctly installed, but every time I spend my graphics to high performance I cann't play any game. It's because I'm not have good drivers for Windows 64-bit os 8.1.

    I've been looking for this driver for months, but I don't get a updated driver for AMD mobility radeon 7670.

    Please, I beg you! publish drivers for windows 8.1 updated 64-bit os.

    Follow the steps precisely

    1. open this Pc or workstation then go to uninstall or change a program

    2 appears in the list, you can see graphics driver Intel & AMD Catalyst install manager. You must uninstall both in express mode so that no other previous parameter no longer exists.

    3. Firstly, uninstall the Intel Graphics driver. If you are asked for a restart of the pc to go for it.
