Pavilion dm3 AMD switchable graphics (HD4000 & HD5000) in Windows 8

I have switchable graphics HD4225 & HD5430 discreet on my HP Pavilion dm3-2015er laptop.
I use the latest version of the driver for Radeon (until HD4000) old - 13.1.
But I can't find the driver to use my discrete graphics HD5430.
Could you help me with this problem?
I use Windows 8 starting November 1, 2013. I'm waiting for the compatible driver AMD 10 months already.
HP does not support the 'old' portable.
My HD4225 works fine now. I use the AMD driver. The level of brightness is adjustable. But I would use my discreet card also.

I have attached the screenshot - it indicates driver for HD4225 and HD5430 versions and I see that do HD5430 does not for the moment.

I have AMD switchable PowerExpress installed for my graphics. But when I click on the high-performance GPU button, that nothing is happening.

I think I'm on the right track to solve the problem.
If you will help me, it will help thousands of people with the same question.

Kind regards
Kharkov, Ukraine

I did it!

The switchable graphic works.

The solution is the 3GIO driver and video driver selected manually catalyst 12.1 Win7 package.

I think that this message might help someone.

  • Success Story with get switchable graphics to run on Windows 10 with one to Inspiron 15r / Inspiron 7520

    For background, some Dell laptops have a function where they use a low-power intel graphics card when running undemanding applications, but they spend a graphics card with high power, high power (series AMD Radeon) when demanding games is running. With the AMD/Intel version, it's a very fragile Setup and you can not download an older version of the drivers and expect to work. Dell engineers specifically design a version of intell driver installers that is compatible with this configuration.

    Pilot automatic/windows updates and changes to the OS can overwrite on this delicate configuration and you are at the mercy of the people of Dell support on when you will get an updated driver. If you use just the vanilla Intel video drivers, they don't respect the will AMD to take the chart control and the AMD video card will sit unused in your laptop.

    There are three parts to get Windows to use your preferred hardware driver, remove all installed software that provides drivers. This is done by uninstalling all the software that puts drivers on the hard drive. The second step is to remove all windows drivers is pegged against because Windows will not allow pilots used to be completely uninstalled. To do this put Windows in "safe mode" where it does not use most of the drivers and then uninstall and delete the driver files themselves. step final is to install your favorite drivers, the AMD and Intel video drivers in this case.

    Here's how I got AMD/Intel switchable graphics to work in Windows 10:

    1. I went on the site of dell drivers with Internet Explorer (not Microsoft Edge/Google Chrome/etc) and used the detection system to recognize my laptop. Then, I downloaded the video drivers Intel and AMD for 64-bit Windows 10
    2. I uninstalled all of the AMD and Intel video drivers via the Add/Remove Programs application in Control Panel.
      1. You can search for "Remove programs" in the search box in the windows bar to get the applet in Windows 10.
      2. There are a lot of Intel drivers for things like network cards, be sure to uninstall the drivers for video cards only.
    3. I started in SafeMode Windows 10. Search for instructions on internet to find out how to enter safe mode.
    4. I opened the control panel and went to the Device Manager to remove the video drivers left on the system.
      1. I think that currently used driver files are not completely uninstalled when you uninstall the software of the driver in the usual way, we must do more.
      2. Open Device Manager (a passerby is windows key + 'x')
      3. Open graphics cards, there should be one for intel and amd.
      4. Right-click on each graphics card and choose uninstall. Then click on the option button driver remove and remove drivers
      5. reset
    5. After the reboot, check that the graphics cards in Device Manager are very generic, they say probably intel or amd.
    6. Install the device driver software intel you downloaded from dell
    7. reset
    8. Install the amd you device driver software downloaded from dell
    9. reset
    10. You should now see the option "Configure switchable graphics" If you right click on the desktop.
    11. Try to run a game that requires a bit of graphics card
    12. Open the app "Configure switchable graphics" and check that it has considered the game that you just ran and that he put it to 'high performance '.
    13. fact

    Probably, you should be on a/c during all this power. I think that I heard that the switchable graphics may change if it is on battery power, not sure.

    Skyrim has worked after that, as well as the intros of l4d2 ran very slowly (they are incredibly unstable when they are executed on the graphics of intel), but the application itself crashed without warning on the desk, just as he finished a solo campaign of loading for me. I suspect that it's probably more a thing of windows 10 a graphical thing and hopefully reinstall the game will fix it.

    Well, my case is very simple. I just install the driver the newest and, and everything works. I wish just that Dell can update driver Audio Conexant Audio Device.

  • Preview of Windows 8 consumers: AMD Switchable Graphics - Unswitchable

    Hi all

    I have a HP Pavilion dv6-6004tx laptop and I recently upgraded to the consumer preview Windows 8 (Build 8250). I wish that some troubleshooting those who have / are affected by this and may have found a way around it.

    Insofar as the specifications of my computer is:

    Intel Core i7-2720QM

    6 GB DDR3 RAM

    64-bit operating system

    AMD Radeon HD 6700M

    Family of Intel graphics

    The problem in my display drivers. Some of you may also have a Switchable Graphics feature that is installed in your computer. But for those who do not, basically, what it is is a feature that allows to switch the display adapter to a GPU to save energy to a GPU performance and vice versa.

    In my case, as you can see above, the GPU performance is the Radeon 6700 M, while the GPU to save energy is the integrated Intel one. My problem with not being able to switch back and forth, as if I was able to come back on Windows 7. As it is a feature of AMD Catalyst Control Center, I searched their site and they actually have a version of supported driver for Windows 8 CP, although still in beta and sometimes glitch.

    (As you can see, my model: AMD Radeon HD 6000 M Series is listed)

    I rebooted after installing the control center, and a popup notifcation tells me that:

    "The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the version of the driver for your compatible graphics card. Please update your graphics driver from AMD, or activate your card AMD using the display manager. »

    I found this curious at first, my model was clearly indicated. But after an inference, I realized that my computer needs to run on the Intel integrated graphics by default. This has been further strengthened when I tried to play a few games and other applications (it would be a bit rough - also experienced before when I forgot to switch on GPU performance).

    The graphics card AMD Radeon used to have a mistake (the unit does not start. Code: 10) in the Manager of devices, but with a new installation of the driver got to AMD, it seems to work very well. However, my computer is still using the default Intel card, and I have no way to switch to the other GPU as catalyst will not start.

    Has anyone found a way around this?

    I'll give you a way to make it work!  He has listed there so many incompatibilities with the FIRST METHOD , you will not get use an Intel (less power consumption card) GPU to work after the changes! You have to wait until HP allows him to work properly or deal with the thirst for energy GPU AMD even in battery mode.

    THE SECOND METHOD listed works without any problems with the compatibility of all the apps BUT it IS demand the pace and order (can be comprehensive for beginners, no worries listed below has got all the information you need to make it work)

    IF the first option:



    I know all the games work properly battlefield 3 is yet to launch

    1 AT first make sure that windows UPDATE IS SWITCH OFF or let you choose to download and install (not automatically or it will update your device (in Device Manager) without your permission and all efforts are gone!

    2 uninstall AMD Catalyst "program and components" in Control Panel, and then uninstall all Intel and AMD devices in Device Manager in the control panel (unistal check pilot to pilot intel HD)

    3.reboot! After the restart, download this _ [rc10] .exe

    and this - 300 MB

    4. install sp53025.exe in windows compatibility mode 7 (it will unpack in C:/SWsetup by default)

    then start the istalation make sure that u choose a "custom", THIS IS CRUCIAL - uncheck the CATALYST (check all the rest intell driver amd driver ect.) do not restart after the instalation

    5. then start the instalation of windows 8 consumer driver overview of AMD.

    Uncheck everything (after that the sp53025 it will be only the AMD (check/uncheck) driver and catalyst box (check/uncheck) available) uncheck the AMD driver and install the driver CATALYST only!

    Reset! Enjoy! There is no CATALYST (only preference of intel and the settings where the CATALYST should be) click the mouse but switchable graphics is now awailable LIKE THIS

    Unfortunately you won't be available to choose between the INTEL and AMD! AMD now works by default

    All the .exe now recognizes 6770 m

    AND METRO APPS WON ' T WORK! AS internet explore will crash as you will open it

    1. download the latest switchable graphics drivers from this site: leshcat IT blog tips & tricks: catalyst 12.3 Pre-WHQL UNIFIL for Switchable Graphics

    2. run the Setup program that will extract the content of the file, by default it will ask you to turn off "Signature enforcement of Windows", you will know that it does not work after restarting as a "Test Mode" watermark is added to the desktop, "Windows 8 preview of consumption."

    3. at this moment, do not run Setup AMD yet. We need to modify some files. By default, the driver will be extracted for "C:\Drivers\Catalyst 12.3 Pre - WHQL UNIFIL".

  • 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.

    There is no graphics card AMD switchable for my model, even with a BIOS update.  That is right.

    Or is it still be grayed out as in the current state.  That is right. An update of the BIOS will do nothing to allow you to change the graphic memory settings.  Everything will be grayed out as before.

    So if I overload a game settings, from the middle to the extreme, this means that most of the 3 GB memory graphics will be allocated to catch the game? Or even will not use the 737 MB dedicated?   The laptop will initially use all the dedicated memory.  If that wasn't enough, he will then consume the maximum (2.4 GB) memory system available and put it to the chart.

  • On a HP pavilion DM3 with inside graphics family of chipsets, Mobile intel 4 series I see a message code 12

    I have a HP Pavilion DM3 1020 ED. This machine has a "Mobile intel 4 series chipset family ' graphics card, which does not work.

    I constantly get a message code 12, "insufficient resources". I also see 2 of these devices in the devicemanager, a normally hidden.

    One hidden does not show a failure, I normally see the error. The laptop works with the standard VGA driver in windows.

    I tried on:

    -Update the driver software

    -Deletion of the driver software and reinstall it.

    -Turn off the appliances (a first for a moment, then both of them)

    -Turn off appliances, remove drivers, then reinstall them using.

    All of these methods did not work.

    Does anyone know another solution?

    Win7 Pro & Home Premium are identical except Pro has 3 more features, which none have no impact on the drivers installed, or that the underlying system.

    If it's OK under the Premium family edition (using the same programs) and not under Win7 Pro it seems to indicate that either another program or hardware has been installed then (assuming that if it was a clean install all drivers of HP were installed/updated)

  • HP pavilion m6 1010ex switchable graphics problem

    Hi all!

    I had this problem for a while, I can't use my amd graphic card. When I install the driver and restart my computer the result is a Disconnections (atikmadag.sys). I tried many drivers of old news, but has not seemed to work. I even formatted my laptop and install a new copy of windows, however it always result in the same problem. Is my current windows 8.1 but the same used to get to 8 and 7. To prevent the Disconnections, I entered the mode without fail and then to Device Manager and disabled the amd graphics card. But I still want the amd graphics card to work.  Several times I tried unistalling the intell and amd then install intel everything first and then amd but it always leads to the same problem. I posted my problem several times but no one seemed to help. As experts online today I hope that this problem can be solved.

    Hello and thank you for your answer

    My bios is updated. Also is it a hardware failure can would you by any chance know if it is possible to buy a new graphics driver and replace it with the default one.

    Use it for automatic installation: * & DownloadType = drivers

    Use this one for the installation manual (unzip and navigate to the driver folder, as you did with the W8 driver). * & DownloadType = drivers

  • AMD/Intel Graphics switchable and upgrade to Windows 8

    Hello world

    I know that many HP Pavilion DV6T-6100 Quad Edition Entertainment laptop owners might consider the upgrade to the new Windows 8 operating system platform. DON'T DO IT!

    I just bought and installed the official version of Windows 8 Pro o my laptop Pavilion DV6T, which came with Windows 7 pre-installed. I had followed the whole windows 8 preview of the incompatibility issues with the graphics driver fiasco switchable HP for some time. I decided to wait to install the official version of the new OS when it was released on October 26, 2012. I bought and applied the upgrade of Windows 7 to Windows 8 last night.

    I thought I'd call HP this morning to find out when they have planned out an official HP Switchable Graphics driver update to resolve incompatibility issues that many HP users have experienced after the upgrade to Windows 8.

    • They've said, in no uncertain terms, "they have a driver available for this problem, but switchable graphic users would have to pay $200 for the reader and have their technical support engineers to apply."
    • He also told me, "HP has no plan to release an update to the free rider problem, so anyone who decided to upgrade to Windows 8 will have to pay support of $200 to fix."
    • I got also said, "my warranty does not cover this update, not being hardware related and related software."

    I paid over $1,200 USD for my laptop model HP Pavilion DV6T-6100 CTO, less than a year ago. Switchable graphics on this laptop was actually a selling point for me, as well as many other owners DV6T. I find it a very irresponsible business move for HP handle that many of their customers in this way. No other manufacturer of the laptop charges their customers for updates, while their product is still under warranty. I work in it and I'll make sure that the HP brand is avoided by everyone that I know in the future. HP has ceased to be one of the best manufacturers of PC, regarding their support for the customer, to be the ABSOLUTE WORST!

    Every computer I've ever owned was a HP, but I will never buy another PC of this society, ever! It is a promise that will be preserved.

    Switchable graphics users per HP: HP has a compatible driver Windows 8 update available, but it will cost $200 more than the price you already paid for your computer and its security.

    Hello Asebeba,

    My solution to the problem is neith, supported or recommended by HP.

    It is well known that HP released several categories of patterns DV6t. It seems that they knew they were going to get rid of the graphical configuration AMD/Intel switchable by the end of November 2011. Which is a not keep from seeling as of soon to become obsolete DV6t models that have been do with the soon outdated AMD/Intel graphic switchable setting possible. However they they built a little more of these models after their passage of OEM to Microsft Windows 8.

    This means that it has supported HP DV6t systems with AMD Switchable graphics, which came the same factories that built our systems, but are running Windows 8. These systems have newer versions of the AMD HD drivers that where fate to the DV6t users whose system supplied with Windows 7 pre-installed.  What are these systems including switchable graphics are incompatible with the 'NEW' Windows 8 and windows 8.1 operating system platforms.

    I could give you the exact name of the HP driver for your switchable graphics special configuration that would work flawlessly on your system, but wouldn't you get anything good for me to do. Because of Windows 7 HP Framework installed on your system. You still have questions, try installing updates later than those offered by HP.  HP would also remove any meantion that I would do whatever it is that they offer and which did not come with your system.


    As far as I know the latest AMD/Intel driver is offered by HP which works with systems built by them with Windows 8 x 64 bit preinstalled.

    Merger of Treexy pilot would be required to uninstall all previous versions of display drivers that you have on your system.

    You would also need to disable the Windows 8 and 8.1 automatic update of device functionality. (Go to: settings/PC Info / Protection of the system / hardware / device settings)

    Once there,

    Select: "no, let me choose what to do."

    Select: "never install driver from Windows Update"

    Apply also to the: Action Center settings (settings / control panel / Action Center / change Action Center settings)

    Deselect "Device Software" (Yo can also deselect 'Windows Update')

    Do not worry! Is not disable Windows Update function. It simply avoids messages from receiviing to update your display drivers that work very well. Do these two things also get rid of this triangle of peskyyellow that appears on your display drivers in Device Manager.

    Unistall old drivers display and software. Then, install the latest version of Windows 8 of the package AMD/Intel HD Graphics Driver availible for your particular display configuration. I will also not allow HP Support Center to automatically install the device drivers on your system at this time. In addition, most systems that encounter this issue with display drivers and windows 8 are no longer under warranty anyway.

    You will have no additional problems running, use or configuration of your HP AMD/Intel graphics switchable on your, shortly after you bought, card HP DV6t system with AMD/Intel switchable graphics.

    No Beta Leshcat driver not required to use the only feature you spent all that money for.

  • Drivers for AMD Radeon HD 5650 switchable graphics by hp!

    I contacted HP by phone

    Literally told me:

    "as long as your laptop computer is a material that supports windows 8, which is clearly the case because you run windows 8 now, then the drivers will be available, but when exactly I have no idea." I know only this fact. »

    What a helpful customer service representative !

    He was rather unfriendly and had a condescending tone. If the call was short.

    Don't know whether to believe it or not...

    I tried something and it seems to work so far, I hope that nothing happens!

    I don't know that I read it on another topic on this forum. Now, I'm working with the old drivers HPs switchable graphics.

    1. Uninstall your current windows program & feature AMD/ATI driver.
    2. Download your driver assigned to the HP site.
    3. Click on install once you have it ready, until you see the ATI / AMD window to install the drivers, the closing and opening to complete the installation.
    4. go to your c: / drive driver, SwSetup, video "C:\SwSetup\Drivers\Video".
    5. Right-click on the setup.exe and go to the Compatibility tab set that it is compatible with windows 7.
    6. then simply click on run as administrator and start the installation.
    7. reset. and then right click on the desktop and 'name', you get your CCC and your rear switchable graphics, the version of windows 7

    I tested it and it worked, when I unplugged my AC adapter and they gave me the old message that I used to get Windows 7, asking me if I want to change the graphics to save

    the credit goes to someone on this forum... not me

    Make sure you don't update the AMD driver and they are for now, until HP releases stuff official windows 8

  • 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.
