G505s Problems with Win 8.1 and AMD radeon hd 8500m

2014-02-18, 19:45 PM

Hi

 

Couple weeks back i bought my G505s laptop. It had windows 8 installed, but right after i started using it i noticed the windows 8.1 update and i downloaded and installed it. 

NOW TO THE PROBLEM:

My G505s Has 2 graphic cards (that's how i supposed it to be, correct me if i'm wrong). Now, both of them are not working properly. My Lenovo Solution Center says that both of them are out of use, and also in drivers management my graphic cards are giving me the ''ERROR 43''. It's saying that i have to install the right version of it, and i've tried to do it (downloaded couple versions from AMD.com) , but it didn't work. Now my laptop has '' lack of power''

 

So please help me, because i want to get all the power from this laptop, and i want it to be worth of my money. 

Thank you :smileyhappy:

hey t0baas1,

               Welcome to the forums,

I am sorry to hear that you are facing issues with your GPU after updating to windows 8.1

I would suggest you update the drivers from here :)

Drivers: AMD Video Driver for Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

hope this helps,

regards

I tried that one, downloaded and installed it, but it didn't help. After i restarted my laptop, it came up with an error '' the license installed is not intended for this computer''.  What should i do now???????????
