Acer :: Timeline TG Series With HD 4330 Switchable Graphics

Feb 20, 2010

enormous potentials of the Acer timeline series that have switchable graphics enabled.

Doing Google search,as well as NBR's own review doesn't show up much information with regards to the switchability side of the Laptop.

For those concerned, any timeline series with a TG, have the HD4330 in it I think?

Download Haali Media Splitter

Extract the zip and open the Media Player application.

Install Haali Media Splitter.

Open Media Player Home Cinema

Go to options, "Output" and leave it:

"Internal Filters" as follows:

"External Filters" add filters --> browse --> seek program files --> CyberLink --> PowerDVD --> VideoFilter:

Filters external brand preference. Thus:

OK and close the Media Player.

Open a movie while playing and right click the touchpad, filters, Cyberlink H.264/AVC Decoder (HD264), tick "Use DxVA" and accept.

Lenovo B / G Series :: B590 - Switchable Graphics GF GT720M Disabled In Device Manager

Feb 7, 2014

I've bought a B590 and installed a Win 7 64bit. I have installed all available drivers from the support page and have the following issue:
 
Device Manager:
I see 2 graphics devices
Intel HD Graphics
NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M

The discrete card is disabled with error code 43 and has an exclamation mark near it [URL] .... Moreover, if i start the NVidia Control Panel it gives me an error with text: "current display is not connected to nvidia GP" GeFoerce Experience is not starting with a back-end error [URL] ...
 
Now here are the ways i tried to use but it did not work:
1. Enable high performance and update with manually downloaded nvidia driver
2. Do the same with HDMI cble connected to a plasma
3. Disable enable the device (screen goes black, than to normal and everything stays the same)
4. Format c: reinstall Win8.1 64 and install all drivers - same thing 
5. Format c: reinstall Win7 64  and install the graphics drivers after everything else (h1d9d9.exe h2d903.exe)
6. Update GT720M drivers  from device manager  (driver is up to date)
7. Run a high-performance 3D game (War Thunder)  - it uses Intel HD
 
What else can i do? I saw people with switchable graphics use some kind of application to specify the game-apps that should use a discrete videocard. I don't have such an app to specify my games.

Acer :: Switchable Graphics - Anyway To Stay On The Intel Gpu On Mains Power

Jan 25, 2010

Is there anyway to stay on the Intel Gpu on mains power , every-time i re-boot the notebook it is on the Intel for the first 30 seconds or so and then it automatically switches to the ATI 4330 and i have to manually switch to the Intel Gpu.

I will be using the Intel 95% of the time, I only need the Ati 4330 to play Battlefield 2.

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: AMD Switchable Graphics Stuck On Intel HD Graphics 4000

Apr 4, 2013

I have an InspironR Special Edition 7520 and my AMD 7760 2GB will not activate or do any graphics processing. It is stuck on the Intel Graphics. I am running windows 8.

-My laptop is set on high performance and is plugged in.

-I ran NovaBench and it used the intel graphics card

-FurMark detected Intelgraphics as my main graphics card

-I ran a small game called "Slender: The Arrival" on the lowest settings it could barely handle it

-During the game and the graphics run I had Catalyst Control Center Up and it showed 0% usage of the graphics card, indicating it failed to switch

- All the drivers are up to date, per the windows solution and from downloading them from the AMD website.

I would like a solution to either, have the switch start working, or to change a setting so only the graphics card is constantly used. If this does not work I fear I'll have to return the laptop for faulty hardware.

Sony :: Switchable Graphics For All I5, I3, Some I7

Feb 9, 2010

Read up on the new Nvidia optimus tech
[url]

From the looks of it, it will support any pc running windows 7, a 200m or 300m 40nm Nvidia gpu, and an IGP.

Their new driver scheme allows both GPUs to be used on a per application basis. The discrete GPU can power down completely when using apps that don't need its power, and power up in 300ms when you start an app that needs it.

Best part is, no more relying on sony to package new drivers or hacking them together for you Z series guys. It is supposed to let you independently update drivers for each GPU.

For other models, this looks like it will enable switchable graphics provided we can get the IGP enabled in BIOS. So the challenge now is to find the offset for the IGP like people did for the VT hacks.

I'd be interested to see some of the Z owners install the optimus drivers and see what happens since they already have an enabled IGP.

HP Pavilion Dv6 Display :: How To Get Switchable Graphics Back

Jul 20, 2014

I recently downloaded an AMD driver update. It removed the switchable graphics option and I have spent hours searching the internet on how to get it back. I can't find any drivers or anything to get it back. Also after I did this Sony Vegas won't open. I have a HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC, Windows 7 64-bit. Is there any drivers or anything I can download to get switchable graphics back?

Acer :: Timeline TZG , Do You Have One? INTEL+ATI Graphics

Feb 9, 2010

I have a 5810TZG basically it has an INTEL 4500MHD and a ATI HD4330 , I did a search and found only 2 other TZG results.

I bought a 5810T with only the INTEL 4500MHD , but returned it for a more powerful gpu.

So what does the Z in TZG mean.

What other versions are there.

Also the switchable graphics only work with the Acer drivers, I have tried v9.12 and above and get a blank screen unless i select dedicated ati only in the bios.

So it looks like we are stuck with catalyst v8.65 if i want switchable graphics or are we?

Dell :: Studio Xps 1647 Switchable Graphics Support?

Jan 11, 2010

It looks like Dell will be upgrading to the mobility HD 5730 (which is lame, by the way, since there will amost certainly now be no gddr5 memory but thats for another thread).

But my question is whether they have enabled the switchable graphics or are making us pay for an IGP we will never be able to use.

I'll bet the lazy engineers at Dell wont bother with it and argue that you dont need intergrated graphics if you have discrete graphics and so on ......

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Switchable Graphics Not Working

Sep 27, 2012

I recently purchased an Inspiron 15R 5520 with duel graphics with the standard intel HD 4000 and a AMD Radeon HD 7670 with 1mb RAM. I tried for the first time to play some graphic intensive games and found that the graphic cards weren't switching. Opening up the Catalyst Control Centre I find that the only option available to me is to change the orientation of the desktop. When I select hardware, nothing shows except the system information button. On the other hand, the intel control centre shows all. I'm sure this can't be normal. The documentation says the graphics should change with the power supply.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1647: PM55, HM55 And Switchable Graphics

Mar 22, 2010

I have been asked to start this thread by a Dell representative so this issue can be cleared up. It will also serve as a thread where future information relating to the 1647 chipsets (and ultimately switchable graphics) can be posted. This has been talked about in the owner's lounge but I'm sure most owners agree that this issue is of enough importance to merit its own thread.

As most 1647 owners are aware, the 1647 is not being shipped with the HM55 chipset, despite Dell's website claiming it would be:

Instead it is being shipped with the slightly older PM55 chipset which was introduced back in September 09' with the quad-core mobile i7's, and is the chipset used on the 1645. This has been confirmed here, here and here.Why would you want the HM55 instead of the PM55? For most, it's one simple reason. The HM55 chipset supports utilisation of the on-die IGP on the new Arrandale range of CPU's. The PM55 unfortunately does not; it cannot transfer the IGP data to the laptop screen, due to the lack of Intel's FDI bus capability (Flexible Display Interface).What does this mean? As the PM55 can't utilise the graphics processor built-in to the new Arrandale CPU's, then switchable graphics is not possible.So if we had the HM55, would we have switchable graphics? At the moment, no. Basically something like NVIDIA's Optimus software is required. Currently ATI do not offer a switchable graphics software solution. BIOS support would also be required from Dell.But, if software and BIOS support is eventually offered, I won't be able to utilise SG anyway, as I have the PM55, right? Correct. This is what we need Dell to clear up. Most owners (not all) purchased the 1647 on the premise that they would receive the HM55.For those interested, some further information on the PM55/HM55 chipsets and switchable graphics can be found here. Chipset information can be found below.

Mobile Intel PM55 Express Chipset
Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset

There is however one "flaw" that would be present if Dell actually went by the chipset and CPU listings on their website. The flaw is the i7-620M. It's a dual-core 32nm Arrandale CPU with an IGP. In other words, it's far more like the i5-520M and i5-540M than the quad-core 45nm i7 CPU's. So, according to Dell's website listing, the i7-620M (as it's an i7) is to be shipped with the PM55. This issue will hopefully be cleared up by Dell also, so let's wait and see what they say.

Please let me know if I have missed out important information and I will include it here. Similarly, this applies if any of the above information is incorrect, please let me know and I'll correct it.

HP Envy M6 Display :: Updating Switchable Graphics Using Windows Update

Apr 12, 2013

I have an HP Envy-m6 with switchable graphics, with the usual combination of an Intel HD 4000 and an AMD Radeon HD 7600M card.
 
When I had just bought the laptop and hadn't realised it had switchable graphics, I made the mistake of updating the drivers for one of these cards via the manufacturer's websites, causing it all to go haywire. I eventually managed to restore this, and was told that the only way in which you can update these drivers is via the driver software offerend on the HP website (or perhap using HP Support Assistant).
 
However, just today Windows Update indicated it had updates for both the AMD and Intel drivers. My question is simply this: can I update both drivers through Windows Update, or will this cause switchable graphics to break?

If I cannot use Windows Update to update these drivers, is HP going to release a combined driver package that incorporates these new drivers on the Support website at some point?

Acer :: Discrete Graphics In A Timeline, Wouldn't That Be Nice

Jul 24, 2009

The Travelmate business line of computers that are based off of the Timeline series have discrete ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics cards. I think there are even some models in the European market that have the ATI graphics card.

Do you think it would be possible to install a graphics card like the HD 4330 into a 3810T (13.3" Timeline) or a 4810T (14.1" Timeline) notebook?

Is it even possible to do this with any notebook?

I'm leaning towards a 4810T as my first choices (the Asus P30A and Acer Travelmate 8371) have not been invited to the Canadian market. The only thing that holds me back is the integrated graphics card. Should I hold my breath and wait for a Timeline notebook with a discrete graphics card?

Why would Acer be reluctant to release a Timeline esque notebook in North America with a discrete graphics card? The ATI card doesn't suck up that much power.

HP Display :: Pavilion G6-1279sl / Switchable Graphics Not Available After A Windows 7 Clean Install

Oct 13, 2014

I had to clean install Windows 7 due to a problem I created in the first place. Anyway, everything runs fine, except for the Radeon graphic card. 

I own a HP Pavilion g6-1279sl Notebook. It's supposed to have an Intel HD Graphics 3000 and a AMD Radeon HD6470M.

I installed the last version of the Catalyst driver, and when I right click on the desktop, it says "switchable graphics", but if I click on that, it just shows me another option from the Catalyst, HydraGrid. 

Using a tool that displays which graphic card is running, I noticed that even when I'm running games, the Intel Graphic Card is working, giving an overall worse performance than the Radeon should give. I mean, the Radeon is never working. I also tried to disable the Intel from Device Manager (I think it's called like this, I have an Italian laptop), and it gave problems due to the Radeon card not working properly.

The BIOS is updated and no option is there about Switchable Graphics.

Is there anything I can do to have back that feature?

Dell Inspiron 5447 :: Windows 8 - Adding Application In AMD Switchable Graphics Settings

Nov 8, 2014

I have Dell Inspiron 5447 i3 with AMD Radeon R7 M265 with Windows 8.1 and have recently updated all needed windows updates.

I know how to add applications in the switchable settings as high-performace with *.exe extension but when I installed applications from the apps store (i.e. Asphalt 8 - Airborne, etc.) I cannot seem to add them to the switchable graphis settings to get the AMD GPU used. I know that the AMD GPU not getting used because I used a monitoring tool (openhardwaremonitor) that says it was not used. I can add applications like some other games I installed but not from the windows apps store so now I am really confused. 

How can I get the AMD graphics to work with some apps in the apps store (specifically in my case, Asphalt)

Acer :: Timeline 3810T/TG Modified BIOS Fix For Both Graphics Cards Powered On

May 15, 2010

Modded BIOS 1.27 for Aspire TM 3810.

Version with Intel/Ati/Switchable options in Switchable Graphics menu:
ftp://ftp.ad1ced.ru/JM31.127_SLIC.zip

Extended version with additional unlocked options:
ftp://ftp.ad1ced.ru/JM31.127_SLIC_ad1ced.ZIP

Don't forget to change User Access Level to see all options

advan20092 is AWESOME!

Just to explain how awesome this modded BIOS is: It enables a new INTEL-ONLY graphics setting in the BIOS for the TG models. This disables the ATI chip entirely, basically making the Switchable Graphics TG models act like the T models, which "fixes" the bug where both graphics chips are active after a Resume from Standby.

This gives 3810TG owners the promised battery life of 8+ hours. One caveat - it disables the HDMI port. For HDMI you have to use Switchable or ATI-ONLY modes.

HP Pavilion G4 Display :: Not Able To Install Switchable Graphics After Fresh Windows 7 Install

Apr 13, 2014

I replaced hard drive with SSD and installed windows 7 ultimate (X64) on my HP Pavilion G4 notebook. However, I am not able to install switchable graphics on my laptop now.
 
I have tried this
1. Installed HPSA and ran update and tuneup. It asked me to update "AMD High-Definition Graphics Driver" but it failed with multiple retries and after some time now it doesnt ask to do this update at all. Now everything is green in HPSA but I am still not able to switch the graphics
2. Tried to download from HP drivers page but it says "AMD Catalyst Mobility cannot be downloaded due to incompatible harware/software on your computer"
3. Tried uninstalling the driver but windows updates the drivers automatically.
4. I also updated BIOS as suggested at [URL] ..... but still no luck......

Sep 8, 2009

1) SU3500 + ATI HD 4330 better than SU9400?

My usage would be web surfing, office apps, music/movie playback, 0 gaming.

I tend to multitask, open many tabs when browsing, plus run several apps at one-go etc.

2) Can I easily replace the HDD with a SSD and will it support the 2.5inch SLC ones?

3) Are there official 9 cell batts for this model out yet?

Acer :: Timeline CPU 100%

Jun 17, 2009

this thread is for all Acer Timeline owners who suffer from 100% CPU load, when only thing that helps is restart.

1. If you are a Timeline owner - having this problem or not, please do report here, what model you own and tell us how is this happening for you.

2. Please inform Acer about this, so they know and can offer a solution (especially if you're from United States as this will have greater impact rather than me telling this stuff to Slovak Acer service)

Alright, this is what I got so far about this thing:
-CPU will just go nuts at no specific time (idle, browsing, ...)
-Proccess explorer shows 'Hardware Interrupts' as source of 99.9% of CPU power
-unlogging won't help, only restart does
-updating BIOS doesn't help
-uninstalling acer epower managment doesn't help, even though it seems making these episodes less frequent somehow

Mine notebook is:

Acer :: Timeline

I'm looking for a Timeline with:

Core 2 Duo Processor
the ATI Graphics Card (not integrated intel)
and a DVD Writer/Player

As to screen size I don't really care which it is, 13-14-15...I suppose I'd prefer 15, but any will do as long as the above specs are met.

I've read reviews that state the timeline series offers these specs but I can't find anywhere that sells a Timeline with them in it.

Acer :: Second IDE In Timeline 1810T

Mar 7, 2010

I actually have a Gateway EC1815U and heard it is identical to the acer 1810t.

In the Gateway bios (insyde) I see an option for a device on IDE1. IDE0 is used for the internal hard drive.

I am wondering if there is either

1- a way to expose the 2nd IDE externally to use like a eSATA device with it

or

2 - Be able to install a 2nd IDE device like a SSD to use that interface

I'm wondering out loud and checking here to see if anyone can offer some advice.
