G50-45 Can't Install AMD Graphic Drivers

2014-10-03, 17:55 PM

Hello,

I just bought this laptop and I downloaded the updated drivers from Lenovo site, but I can't install AMD graphic drivers.

The screen went black during installation and stayed black for almost 40 minutes (then I rebooted the laptop).

So I tried to download AMD drivers through their Autodetect software, and during the installation the screen showed weird colors, mostly green but in a "old fashioned 8 bit way" we can say.

What should I do?

 

Also, I can't use the dedicated graphic card (Radeon HD 8500M): the laptop keep using the integrated card, which makes every game running slowly. I already tried to set which card an application must use through Catalyst Control Panel, but it doesn't work.

 

Thanks for the replies.
