AMD R5 M230 ON WINDOWS 7 X64 DOESNT WORK

2014-10-13, 21:04 PM

So I just installed Windows 7 ultimate x64 on my lenovo g40 with the amd radeon r5 m230. I installed the drivers of  the graphic card but the system does not recognize it. I looked on the device manager and it shows this:

-AMD Radeon R5 M230 with a yellow triangle.

-Standard VGA Graphic card -working fine

I saw a thread that said that I should install the intel driver and then the amd driver but when I try to install the intel vga driver it shows this:

"This system does not meet the minimum requirements to install this software"

I have tried installing the amd drivers and nothing works. The aero does not want to work.

 

What can I do? Thanks

hi zamter52,

 

Just to verify, do you have the G40-30 or the G40-70?

 

For the G40-30, this is uses an Intel Celeron N2830 processor, in whicn you need to install this graphics driver:

Intel VGA Driver for 64-bit Windows

 

If you have the G40-70, this is either powered  by an I3/i5/i7 processor, and you need to install this graphics driver:

Intel VGA Driver for Windows 7 (64-bit) - Lenovo G40-70, G50-70

or 

Intel® Iris™ and HD Graphics Driver for Windows* 7/8/8.1 64bit

 

When finished, install the AMD R5 M230 driver:

AMD VGA Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) or  try this AMD R5 M230 driver directly from AMD website and observe.

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

Re: AMD R5 M230 ON WINDOWS 7 X64 DOESNT WORK

Hello,

 

I am trying to do the same thing for my brother's computer. 

I was able to install the driver for intel HD graphic card successfully.

When I try to install catalyst for AMD driver it looks like catalyst isn't able to determine that the card is installed phisically on the computer. 

The hardware id is:

PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_666F&SUBSYS_380C17AA&REV_00

 

Can anyone give me some tips and tricks about how should this be installed ?

 

Thank you.

Hi guys, I had the same problem  but on a G40-70 laptop until I read this post:


https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/G/Problemas-gr%C3%A1ficos-intercambiables/td-p/1277047/page/8

A girl found to solve the problem by installing w7 optional updates which include the intel HD graphic card driver:

 

 

 

After that I installed the drivers for radeon graphic card provided for lenovo form his support page and it works very good, even the Windows Experience Index ran without problems.

 

I hope this help ;)
