Re: issue regarding amd r5 m230 graphics card 2gb on lenovo g50-70

hi Ashish1793,

 

If you're running on Windows 7 64bit, can you consider the following:

1. Navugate to the Control Panel (icon views) > Display Adapters and uninstall both the Intel and AMD Display driver then reboot.

2. Install the Intel Display Driver first then reboot.

3. Install the AMD Dislpay Driver (the files will be extracted drivers to the C:\Drivers\VGA folder - overwrite if prompted and reboot if necessary)

 

When finished,  you should now have both the Intel HD Graphics 4600 and AMD R5 M230 in the Device Manager > Display Adapters

 

If you get a Code 43 error on the AMD Display Device Manager, try to install the AMD R5 M230 driver directly from AMD website and observe.

 

If you have Windows 8.1, download the Intel and AMD Display driver from the G50-70 drivers page and install them respectively.

Re: issue regarding amd r5 m230 graphics card 2gb on lenovo g50-70

Hi, I am having same issue with my Lenovo G50-70 , Windows8.1, with AMD R5 M230 where on displaying some images, I get the message "intel hd display driver stopped responding and has recovered".

I went the Display Adapters from control panel, and pressed to Update the Intel HD driver and AMD driver: but both are up-to-date: even I matched the software version number with the latest on Lenovo website http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/g50-70-noteboo...

 

What is the reason for this issue, and how can I come out of it? I have started seeing this issue recently: this week, though it worked fine all along. Is there a way to reset these adapters - could there be memory leak etc?

 

Best,

Pawan Mathur.
