Lenovo G500 radeon problem

Hi guys,

I've got g500 with radeon hd 8750 and a intel graphics.

When i play or try to play in bf3 for example i think that notebook use intel graphic card. I played on the lowest needs and had maybe 10 fps.

I read that i must istall Catalyst Control Center or something from AMD and this should give me possibility to choose between 2 cards (before run the game). But this program doesn't work, He told me that i don't have any AMD components. Maybe I use it wrong, I download Catalyst for 7000series because i don't find on 8000.

I use win 7 64bit.

Please help and sorry for my engishSmiley Happy

Re: Lenovo G500 Radeon problem

Hi golona,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Please Try uninstalling AMD Driver under Device Manager and make sure to put a check on the prompt asking to delete driver software.

    Then Check under Control Panel / Programs and Features / Uninstall any Catalyst or AMD Graphics Components.

 

Then try to Install This Software

     AMD Video Driver

 

Hope this helps,

Cheers!

Re: Lenovo G500 Radeon problem

hi

 

I'm glad that your concern has been resolved,

   I think that the AMD Catalyst helps with the Graphics switching without it the Graphics adapter auto switch will not work..

 

Feel free to post back if you have further concerns

 

Regards

Solid Cruver

Cheers!

Re: Lenovo G500 Radeon problem

I tried everything install, reinstall etc and it doesn´t work at all. Very bad experience. I have G510 and AMD Radeon 8750d, unfortunately I have to say this is by far worst experience ever with new notebook/brand.
