Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

Your laptop is equipped with something known as Switchable Graphics -- and in this case, the PC (not you) makes the decision to switch between the two different graphics chips.

 

There is no way for you manually to make the switch.

 

While this PC is still under warranty, you should contact HP Customer Support directly to have them put you in touch with HP Technical Support to see what they can do about diagnosing and repairing your machine remotely.

I did this recently and the HP Tech was able to remotely access my PC from the Internet and do the needed repairs.

 

If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1

If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

NOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!

If you have trouble finding a phone number, then try: 1 (800) 474-6836


Good Luck

Hello Mrstenter

 

Thanks for intresting :-)

 

I bought a HP laptop 15-ay057nw, PN: w7a10ea (link to product card: http://www8.hp.com/pl/pl/products/lapto ...! Tab = specs) with the original, pre-installed W10 home 64 bit. It has two graphics cards, integrated Intel HD520 and dedicated Radeon R5 M430. Unfortunately, when you start games or advanced 3D applications do not switch to a dedicated card (still working on an integrated Intel).

 

What I did:

 I updated 10
I updated the BIOS to version 13 (the latest)
I downloaded the latest drivers from HP
I changed in the Power Options for highest performance
I assigned in the program to support Radeon applications that want to start from a dedicated card
No effect


Again, I set the system partition hidden, nothing was updating, as I left the drivers with image ... no effect.

HI

 

I bought this computer four days left (14/10/2016) and doesen't work properly from first start.

 

The laptop has two graphics cards, the load 3D graphics should attach the Radeon. Unfortunately, this is not happening.
Laptop operating normally, the drivers installed correctly as shown in the screenshot.
Finally, the games have the 5fps, rendering 3D images is... the massacre :-(

 

FurMark program on screen detects only one card, HD520 integrated, but I've installed drivers for both cards.
