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......
 
Product Name: HP Pavilion g4 Notebook PC
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Service Pack 1

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?

HP Pavilion Dv6-7007tx Display :: Standard VGA Driver Error On Fresh Win7 Install

Aug 25, 2014

OS: Win7 64Bit
Product : b0p18pa#ab4
Model: dv6-7007tx
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT 630m
 
On fresh install of W7 I have 2 instances of "standard VGA graphics adapter" one that is "installed correctly" (IDs below):
 
PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_181B103C&REV_09PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_181B103CPCIVEN_8086
&DEV_0166&CC_030000PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0166&CC_0300

One that is showing as an error:

PCIVEN_10DE&DEV_0DE9&SUBSYS_181B103C&REV_A1PCIVEN_10DE&DEV_0DE9&SUBSYS_181B103CPCIVEN_10DE
&DEV_0DE9&CC_030000PCIVEN_10DE&DEV_0DE9&CC_0300

After trying multiple times (both automatically and manually) to install the Nvidia drivers it shows an error saying "you must install  an Intel driver first".  I realize this is the HP forum, but i've tried contacting Intel with no luck on top of trying every Intel driver that looks even remotely relevant. (most of which error while installing mentioning my computer lacks the requirements for the install).
 
I've tried updating the drivers automatically through windows on top of disable/uninstall and restart, but the same problem keeps arising.

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?

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/Compaq :: Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Apr 20, 2010

My new DV7t Quad should be coming on Friday. Right now it is stuck in China, but I was wondering. Would it be better to keep the Windows 7 that they have install on the computer, or should I do a clean install? Right now, I have Windows 7 Ultimate running my old laptop, however, I only the disk for the 32 bit. While my Quad will be a 64 bit.

So if it would be a benefit to do a clean install, could someone explain how to do it without having a new windows 7 disk. I did order the system restore disks from HP when I bought the computer.

Acer Aspire E5-551 :: Fresh Install On SSD - Windows 8.1

Feb 25, 2015

I bought a Aspire E5-551 on amazon second hand. Had a fresh Windows 8.1 on it. Turn it on, mess around, everything seems fine if not slow due to the HDD. Pop in a new SSD I bought that tested OK on with another computer. Install Windows 8.1 Via USB. It get to the part will it tell me to restart, upon restart it will always hang at getting ready or some such thing. I let it set for hours, even the spinning icon stropped spinning.

So I reset the laptop via the power button. I get the error "The Computer Restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error" and tell me to restart. It will keep doing this no matter how many times I click restart. Never had this issues with all the other computers or laptops I ever installed 8.1 one but the internet has a solution. While the "The Computer Restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error" is on screen you can bring up cmd line via shift+f10 and bring up regedit. The fix is to go to HKLocal machine/SYSTEM/SETUP/STATUS/ChildCompletion and change the setup.exe key to 3. After this I'll get some issues with blank screens upon restart but after 1 or 2 reboots i get to my desktop. Though the desktop doesn't have all the apps and things a fresh windows install comes with.

Like IE is not even listed on the start menu. Looks like a halve baked install or something. But everything is fine. While like this I can reboot the machine a bunch. Click around, seems okay. Seems like all is well till I start installing drivers. Ill go installing drivers then the machine will stop responding to clicks but the mouse still moves around. When I reboot it like this Ill get struck at "getting ready" and i'll never be able to get to my desktop again. Now I can get into safe mode and Ill uninstall all the drivers but when I try to do a regular boot ill just hang at "getting ready'.

Dell XPS 15 L521x :: Windows 8 Crashing On Fresh Install

Apr 8, 2013

I've got a XPS 15 L521x that was running Windows 7 for weeks with out incident. I decided I'd like to try Windows 8. I installed (after changing Sata to AHCI) without incident. After the install completes I reboot and it crashes. The OS goes to "attempting repairs". I can run a "refresh" of the OS and it will fix the issue and then crash again after a reboot.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 With Windows 8 - Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Dec 1, 2012

My Y580 should be arriving shortly. I got it on the Black Friday Special and it comes with Windows 8. I bought a SSD to replace the HDD and I am wanting to downgrade it to a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro and I have a couple questions:
 
How to do this for the Y580? I have not been able to locate one.
 
Also I am assuming I would not want to use the Windows 8 device drivers correct? Do I use the Windows 7 device drivers?
 
Would use the drivers from the Lenovo site or each devices specific website? I am going to try to save them on a DVD in advance and want to be prepared.

Dell Inspiron 600m :: Setup And Configuring After Fresh Install Of Windows XP SP2

Jan 24, 2015

I brought my Inspiron 600m back to life and did a fresh install of Windows XP SP2. After that I began installing drivers for it from Dell.com at the following link.

[URL] ....

Now there wasn't any  drivers that other recommended like chipset/system drivers available when searching by service tag. However if you search by model (600m) a lot more come up. Im not sure if I should download any of them.

My problem is it cannot connect to the internet and the ethernet port is dead. I have no error messages. I tried LAN connections using an ethernet cable to another machine and it does not take.

I am running Intel PROSet/Wireless and it does see nearby networks but cannot connect. It says configuration failed. I have read all the usual documents for troubleshooting but no solution yet. I have heard there where some flaws with this model and some of the equipment.

Lenovo X220 X Series ThinkPad :: Microphone Quite After Fresh Windows 8 Install?

Mar 30, 2013

I just did a system restore of windows 8 (clean wipe) and went through the process of reinstalling all the drivers.  I installed the latest version SmartAudio (8.32.43.0).  In Google hang out it said the microphone wasn't working, then I clicked on the settings and made the internal mic the default, I got good mic for 1 second.  Did it again and the same thing.  But this is only for a single second.  In skype I tried the same thing and it is just super quite, it doesn't register on the scale unless I blow directly into the mic (so I know it's picking something up).  Last week I had my upgraded from win 7 Windows 8 install working just fine with the microphone (zero problems ever before with this thing).  I checked in mic properties and DB and volume are set to max. So what is it about the fresh install that is making the mic all cracked out? (I checked the SmartAudio settings too) I'm having issues with my Bluetooth mouse too(disconnects at restart and have to reinstall) and Power Manager (it doesn't show up as a toolbar anymore).  P.S.. I've gone to the X220 site and downloaded the latest drivers and installed system update.

Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 :: Setting Up Laptop From Fresh OS Install - Windows 7

Apr 2, 2013

I admit that I messed up in trying to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit without reformatting and using a flash drive and instructions downloaded from YouTube. And yes, I have learned a great lesson from this experience. Now I have purchased from DELL a Windows 7 CD along with a drivers CD for me to start over with. I would like to know how to do this the right way. I have a Inspiron laptop model 17R N7110. I am hoping that this fresh install will put this laptop back like it was when it was new. Minus the bloatware of course.

HP Envy 15t-3200 Display :: Blue Screen After Graphics Install

Nov 11, 2014

I'm an IT professional working on a client's HP Envy 15t-3200 notebook PC (Win 7 x64, Intel i7, AMD 7700 series)
 
He said (he thinks) after installing a recent windows update, it started blue screening on him with a graphics error.
He restored his PC to factory install, and it was working fine until he installed windows updates and the graphics drivers again, receiving the same blue screen graphics error.
 
I picked up his laptop. I installed a slipstream of windows 7 that I created. Everything worked fine - as soon as I installed his graphics drivers.
 
First, I had installed the AMD drivers (from AMD, not HP). I thought everything was working fine, until I checked the device manager and saw that the AMD graphics were being disabled, and the laptop was reverting to the generic graphics driver. I also tried the older driver offered on HPs support page.

I uninstalled the AMD graphics, and installed the Intel graphics. As soon as they were installed, upon restarting I received the same original blue screen error and had to result in booting to safe mode and performing system restore.
 
When I install the AMD graphics without installing Intel graphics, it reverts itself to Generic graphics. The AMD graphics adapter shows a Code 43 in the device manager, stating that the device has stopped working because it has reported problems.
 
I played around with different versions of AMD graphics which did not resolve the issue, and I installed different versions of the Intel graphics, which still caused a blue screen.
 
The PC is working ONLY with the generic graphics drivers, which doesn't work for what my client wants to be able to do (gaming).
 
I found this - [URL] ..... on the troubleshooting page for this notebook, and tried using this solution which also did not resolve the issue.
 
I've checked temperatures of the laptop and nothing is anywhere near overheating.

Acer :: Acer 6930ZG With A Fresh Install Of Windows 7 RC 32bit - MapleStory Blue Screen Of Death

Aug 15, 2009

I have an Acer 6930ZG with a fresh install of windows 7 RC 32bit. I can play Call Of Duty 4, Counter Strike, Flatout 2 etc. with no problems! But when I try to open MapleStory a blue screen appears, and begin to make a physcial memory dump? . MapleStory is a 2D-game, and Call Of Duty requires much more.

I made a little research, and I found out that alot of people have the same problem, and they said it was caused by a conflict with a program or hardware drivers. I have tried to delete my NVIDIA driver, and install it again. No luck.

And yes, I have also tried to run MapleStory in compatibily mode

As I said: It's only in MapleStory I experience the problem, and I don't think it's ram-failure, since I have seen the same problem on a different computer, and I can play Call of Duty 4.

Here is the system log:

Apple :: Only VGA RES On Fresh XP Install

Mar 22, 2009

Just did a fresh install of XP on my bootcamp partition. And I can't gat any drivers to work correctly with the 9600m GT. Tried several drivers from Laptopvideo2go.com, but they keep reverting to a basic VGA res and color depth. It will not let me adjust any settings.

It says sothing about the currently installed graphics drivers was written for a previous windows installation, so teh default VGA driver will be used.

If anyone has any info to help a guy out here it would be greatly appreciated.

I never experienced any issues like this on either Vista x64 or Win7 X84/64.

Dell :: Fresh Install, Gparted The Key

Jul 10, 2007

If you are thinking about formatting and re-installing the OS, and setting up new partitions, use GParted. It is a free and very easy to use program. I couldn't believe how easily it worked sparing me the $40-$60 that a good partition program uses. I just thought I would give these guys some free press since they do all that work for free.

HP/Compaq :: Fresh Install DV4T

Feb 18, 2009

I just did a fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64 Bit following Orev's guide. I backed up the SWSetup folder and everything went fine except a couple of things:

1.) Quickplay. I don't have the QPW & HPQPDP folders in the SWSetup folder. Does quickplay still come with DV4T's or is HP using something new? Do I need to install some other program or driver from SWSetup to get quickplay to work? Should I not even worry about it and just another player?

2.) Recovery Partition. I followed a link in another post, here at NBR, to HP's site telling me how to add quickplay from the recovery partition of the hdd. I can see the recovery partition but when I try to access it, it says it's empty. Is it possible to access it through explorer or do I have to boot from it? When I did the fresh install, I just reformated partition 1, the one with vista on it already and did nothing to the recovery partition. Is this correct?

3.) Bluetooth. After I installed bluetooth and only after the internet connection is established, the icon pops up on the system tray even though I disabled it in the startup menu and told it in the bluetooth program itself not to display the icon. Also, when the computer first boots up, it tells me bluetooth couldn't connect because of a .dll file that is missing?

4.) Scroll Slider on Touchpad. I disabled alot of things in the startup menu and now the scroll slider doesn't work. Obviously it's because of the things I disabled, but why would disabling it from startup cause it not to work? The touchpad still works fine. I followed some things in this thread and everything here. Could any of this affect the scroll slider?

5.) Recovery Manager. What happened to the recovery manager that came factory installed? Is that in the SWSetup folder?

6.) Drivers. Should I follow this thread and update all the drivers since they are all new compared to what is in my SWSetup folder?
