Turning off switchable graphics in BIOS

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

propably my question was already answered in another post but I would like to hear fresh answer. Does HP plan to make an option in BIOS to turn off switchable graphics on my computer (hp pavilion dv6-3040ec). Without option to turn it off I am thinking if i have made a good choice when I bought a HP notebook...

This is a user to user forum, I doubt you will get an answer from HP here, sorry.

All the dv6 owners are waiting for hp to release an amd catalyst controller fix to enable the actual menu for manually switching between the gpus. That would solve the problem.

Is ATI PowerXpress what you're looking for?  I have it on my DV6-3142, in CatalystControl Centre (version 2010.016.541.8279).

Re: Turning off switchable graphics in BIOS

in subject of my post stands "in BIOS", yes there is a option in catalystcontrol center to switch graphics and other options but it runs only on Windows and I need it mainly because I use Linux...

The same problem stands for the hp pavilion g6 series notebooks as well.
