Lenovo G50 70- Issues installing Graphics card (AMD) and audio jack in Windows 10

I recently switched to Windows 10 from Windows 8. I have installed drivers dowloaded from lenovo support. While graphics intense applications are opened the AMD graphics is supposed to be switched on. But it is not switching from intel graphics. Also my headphone jack is not working. Is there anything to install for switching graphics and audio jack to work properly.?

Dear ajidjz,

 

Welcome in lenovo community,

 

To switch between the graphics cards,

 

Please open the BIOS configuration page, and make sure that (Optimus GPU device) is switchable.

 

About the audio problem,

 

Open control panel >> hardware and sound >> Smart audio >> choose Audio Director >> click Multi-Stream

 

Regards,

Joseph

Dear Joseph,

Thanks for the reply. I have checked my BIOS settings. It is in discrete mode. That means system will be able to switch graphics. And also it is working fine in Windows 8. But in windows 10 only intel graphics is active. Everything installed normally, AMD catalyst is working. When i right clicks on desktop, even AMD "configure switchable graphics" option is also there. I added the required apps to the configuration settings. But nothing worked. While graphics intense games are loaded intel graphics is On. AMD is not turning On. Is there any sequence in driver installation while installing drivers like Chipset, lenovo energy manager , intel vga and amd vga?.

Dear ajidjz,

 

Discrete mode, means that the machine will only use the initial VGA card, so please change it to switchable.


And about the drivers installation sequence, firstly you will install the Intel then the AMD VGA card.

Joseph

Hello;

I have the same Graphic Card problem and there is no "switchable" choise in bios settings. There is UMA Only and Discrete sections.

I have the same issue: Bios doesn't allow to change mode in graphics mode; Win10 doesn't detect AMD GPU, official Lenovo drivers fail to install.
