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,

Thanks for posting.

Please try these troubleshooting steps that may help solve the problem.

First connect your wired laptop so you don't have an internet connection.

-The first is to uninstall/reinstall the graphics driver AMD.
-Go to Device Manager and uninstall the graphics driver.
-Next is to check programs and features and uninstall everything related to AMD.

    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.

  • 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:

    Video card

    NVIDIA GTX 650 1 GB ddr3 (128-bit)


    AMD Dual Core 6000 + @ 3.2 ghz


    4 GB of ddr3 memory

    Applications in full-screen mode using lags like hell, my mouse moves in slowmotion too much (real slowmotion)

    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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • My Z500 won't read the dedicated graphics card driver.

    Or just got a new Z500, removed the BONE, it came with and Windows 8.1 is installed.

    First of all, I had a problem that the screen was too low, so I fiddled with the driver and after removing and re - install the graphics driver Intel HD4000, I managed to get back to normal.

    However, I tried to install PES 2011 on it, and everytime I open its settings, it would give a warning that my system does not meet the minimum requirements. It would show that he only reads the HD4000 Intel.

    So, normally, I try to re - install the nVidia drivers and install new and others, but to no avail. I tried to check in the BIOS, but I'm only given two options: switchable graphics or UMA and not knowing what UMA is I chose the switchable graphics option.

    Any ideas what to do?

    I'd be happy to offer more information, if necessary. It has a GT 740 M btw.


    You can try checking this thread, see if this will allow you to force start your game with Nvidia graphics

    Hope this helps

    See you soon!

  • 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.

  • dedicated graphics card problem

    Hi all!

    I have a HP probook 4530 s and after 2 years of using the dedicated graphics card (ATI Radeon 7470) seems to have a problem. I was playing my game, which is a flash game based on chrome and suddenly the screen frozened. I use by default the ATI graphics card because the system supports switchable graphics. So, after this screen frozen, I turned off my laptop and after I turned once again he doesn't want to go through the screen of windows welcome. I went into safe mode, disabeled ati graphics card and after I restarted again, I could get properly into windows. A funny thing is that after that, I reinstalled windows and the first thing is to install the graphics driver. After clicking on restart my laptop frozened again in the Welcome to windows screen.

    Can anyone help me please with this problem?

    Thank you in advance.

    Try from the BIOS, there is something that you can uncheck it from the BIOS and it will work exclusively on the second card, of the processor.

    The thing is that I found the problem and it is verry annoing. I disassembled my laptop to renew the theat conductor paste and I saw that the old spent was melted by the heat by the graphics card and drained on certain components close to, and I know that this dough is a conductor of electricity now so bye bye dedicated graphics card.

  • Pavilion 15 e008-sc: dedicated graphics card update

    Hi one just want to ask if possible to modify and update a dedicated graphics card?

    AMD Radeon HD m 8670 is dedicated to my laptop inside. I want to update this to little graphics card more powerful. I don't want to buy a new machine. It is possible on this type of material.

    If so, that will be good? I can put here nvidia or amd graphics chip, it must be?

    CPU: Intel i5 - 3rd generation 3230 m 2, 6 ghz

    RAM: 8 GB

    I think that the processor and RAM are kind a good but the power of the graphics card is somehow a hollow. Thanks for the reply


    Unfortunately, the Radeon HD m 8670 is integrated with the system board and is not an evolutionary element - this is the case for virtually all mobile phones as a consumer.

  • Pavilion p6 - 2020t: HP-Pavilion will identify the new graphics card


    I got a HP Pavilion for a few years now and never updated my BIOS (not that I know well). I'm trying to install a new graphics (gtx 750ti) card and the computer does not recognize it. It shows the first screen, and then a black screen and a beep, then it crashes. Keyboard does not work, cannot get into the BIOS.

    I tried everythign with current BIOS, boot legacy and ensuring that the Integrated GPU is disabled, and nothing works. I also did research on food, and but it is not terrible, it should work with this graphics card (the fan even spinning).

    According to my research, the current BIOS is simply not recognize, and I need to update. My current version is: FRIEND 7.16, 05/10/2011

    I navagate through the HP website and it said that the automatic update should update the BIOS for Windows 10, and it won't let me download all drivers (although the last BIOS update was 2011). I tried to enter the FRIEND's site and download it from there and it won't even install their drivers, it says that flash is not supported (probably for Windows 10).

    If someone could give me an idea of how can I get a newer version of the BIOS for my motherboard, it would be much appreciated as I'm pretty sure that's the reason why the computer is not recognizing the new graphics card

    The risk is that the video card is one that is for a newer PC with an EFI BIOS. That's why the empty card is not recognized.

    If you use a card equipped with a switch on the virtual card allowing the use in legacy and uefi BIOS it will work with the BIOS of your PC.

    Sapphire makes video cards that have this capability. Take a look at the catalogue. What you need is a PCIE x 16 card video with switchable legacy\uefi BIOS or legacy support, but not only UEFI. & lang = eng

    You cannot change the type of BIOS that your PC has in the UEFI.  It's a question of his being of a generation of diferent from the PC.
