Solved!

My laptop see himself as other model than he is. + Dual graphic doesn't work

HP Pavilion G6 2117EO
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello.

I have a little funny probem.

So my laptop see himself as a "

Notebook HP Pavilion g6-2214so" [BIOS ]

While under battery is writing its model : G6 2117EO

+ One of graphic card doesn't work. [ Windows don't even see secound graphic card [ 0 unknown devices ]]

In Bios i do not see option with dual graphic [It could be reason of that bios]

 

So can i somehow fix it ?

Like force install old bios from G6 2117eo ?

 

Greetings!

What you are seeing is consistent with the laptop actually being a g6-2214so...that model only has integrated video while the g6-2117eo has switchable dedicated video. It would seem someone has put a g6-2214so motherboard inside a g7-2117eo chassis. BIOS is not the problem. It can't make hardware that does not exist.

You should be able to see if it has a webcam or not. Is there a little eyehole looking back at you from the middle of the top of the screen?

Not so...either motherboard has the ability to support a webcam. Have you owned this since new? If you bought it used I think somebody put in a replacement motherboard so all the chassis parts including the webcam would be there, just a different motherboard.
