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 Inspiron 15r SE 7520 :: Switchable Graphics Not Working Properly

Feb 21, 2013

I bought this laptop 4 days ago. I am playing NFS MW 2012.  I couldn't find much difference with switchable graphics. I getting video less than 30 fps with complete resolution(1920 *1080). I have tried uninstalling AMD driver and install a new driver from dell website(A04). But driver uninstalled with errors and i am unable to install a new driver. Now I am unable to select switchable graphics.

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.

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)

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Setting A Default Graphics Card?

Feb 1, 2013

I just bought a new Dell 5520 with switchable graphics. It has 2 graphic cards:

Intel (R) HD Graphics 4000, and
AMD Radeon HD 7670M

Now, here is my problem, whenever i try to run any game I have to switch to the ADM card. But some games ask to choose a Graphics Adapter at which point I can only select the intel HD Graphics Card and not the AMD one. I tried to set High Graphics setting with AMD Catalyst Controller but the game does not seem to detect it. What do i do?? Is there any way I can select AMD card as my Default Graphics Adapter?

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: How To Switch Manually From Intel To AMD Radeon Graphics Card

Mar 18, 2013

So I recently bought a laptop (Dell Inspiron 5520) with AMD Radeon 7670m HD graphics cards. However, the laptop came with another graphics cards too which is I suppose called an integrated graphics card. It's name is Intel HD 4000. So basically I was on a site which told me whether my computer could run a specific game or not. I passed everything like processor speed etc. but the graphics card. It said I use Intel 4000. I checked from some other applications and those also told me that I was using Intel 4000. I want to know whether I use both graphics cards or just Intel 4000 and if that is the case how I can switch manually from Intel to AMD Radeon graphics card.

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.

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 :: 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.

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?

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?

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?

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.

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......

Dell Inspiron 17R SE :: GT650M Graphics Card NOT WORKING

Apr 23, 2013

Dell have been working on a fix for several weeks/months for the issue where the Nvidia graphics card either vanishes completely or randomly  disappears requiring a reboot to get it recognized by the system. URL....

According to @dellcares the Product Team are actively working on a permanent solution - my direct conversations with @dellcares on twitter are now over two weeks long. There is still no guaranteed ETA on a remedy. The list of people with this faulty laptop seems to be growing daily - probably because Dell are still selling it, knowing it has a major problem.if you are the owner of this laptop or a similar laptop which is suffering with a vanishing Nvidia GT650M.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Won't Turn On

Jan 11, 2015

A few days ago I was using my laptop when the notification that I had to plug in the charger or my computer battery would die popped up. So I plugged it in and used it for a few minutes when suddenly the screen went black and the computer just shut off while plugged in. I noticed that my charging cord had a green light when it was plugged into the wall but the light went off as soon as it connected to my laptop. I've tried letting it charge, I've tried holding down the power button, I've tried removing the battery and plugging it back in, and I've tried a newer charging cord but the computer still won't turn on. No lights come on even when it is plugged into the wall.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: External HDD Not Detected

Feb 24, 2013

I have an Inspiron 5520, with Win 7 Home premium 64 bit and an external Western Digital HDD My passport Essential SE (3.0). The laptop is fairly new, I purchased it last June. From first day it seemed that something was wrong with the connection with the hdd. In case I was even touching the cable of the hdd it was disconnecting for example, and since yesterday it doesn't detect it at all!

The light of the hdd goes on, and I can feel it working, but I get no beep sound on my computer, I dont see the drive on device manager, and in general its nowhere!

I tried the hdd in all four USB ports and nothing. The drive has no problem on other computers (with OS Vista and Win 7). My mouse works perfectly on all four usb ports.I updated the drivers for BIOS and chipset, I run pc check up. I checked both laptop and drive with antivirus and antispyware programs. I reinstalled the driver from WD website.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Programs Keep Minimizing?

Feb 27, 2013

Here are my computer specs:

Manufacturer: dell
Model: Ispiron 5520
Rating: 5.6
Processsor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i%-3210M CPU @ 2.50 GHz  2.50 GHz
Installed memory (RAM) 6.00 GB (5.86 usable)
System type: 64- bit operating system
Windows 7

I don't know why, but anything I have open- chrome, games, word, windows, periodicly acts as if it is minimized, except I can still see it. If I am on word, I might be typing. Then it happens, and no matter what I do nothing happens unless I click the window again. That means something else, not an application, is opening and closing in the background. The border color changes when this happens. It happens about every minute to five minutes. I think it might be McAfee, but I'm not sure- I can't uninstall it anyways, wont work enough to uninstall or let me delete the files. I did the whole dell scan thing from their website, everything twas fine it said. Sometimes, my computer also fades black and back on, again and again and again- unless I restart it.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Boot From USB Device?

Oct 1, 2012

I got a new Inspiron 15R 5520. The problem is I can't boot the laptop from a USB stick like I did on N5040(My 2 years old laptop), and there is no option to do this. First, I hit 'F2' to enter the BIOS setup page, there are only 3 options under the boot device: Hard Drive, CD/DVD, Network. I restart the computer and hit 'F12' to select boot device, still no USB.

Does Dell freeze the function to boot from USB device?
