Re: switchable graphic adapter & catalyst control center

Click Start  and enter Recovery in the search field. Select Recovery Manager from the list when it becomes available. Allow the action to continue, if prompted. The HP Recovery Manager opens.



Click  Hardware driver re-installation , Next , and then follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall hardware drivers for the display.

Re: switchable graphic adapter & catalyst control center

hi kamat,


thanks for your reply;


after i did the steps to reinstall hadware driver installation;


there is still no options to switch my graphics from integrated mobile HD into amd 1 gb dedicated adapter;

i checked with device manager, it only recognised hd intel mobile (integrated graphic).


other problem is i dont know whether this is related or not; but suddenly my stock trading application stopped working.

previously running under integrated graphic mode

this is about the same time the graphics cannot be switched

i just stopped; can be lauched but do not want to connect to the remote server;
