g505s: switchable graphics or unlocking BIOS

2016-07-03, 16:00 PM

Hi.

 

I have to totally turn off switchable graphics and use only dedicated card on my device, but I cannot find any option to do that.  Is there any solution? I think that the only way to do that is switching the options in BIOS, but I don't know how to get to "the advanced options" tab.

 

Can anybody help me?

 

Lenovo g505s,

Radeon HD 8550G (integrated) & Radeon R5 M230 (dedicated),

BIOS version: Lenovo 83CN53WW(V.3.00)

This is probalby a dumb question but I'm not very knowledgable about computers, so here goes. How do I know if I have a deticated card? The reason I ask is I dont have the iGPU on your diagram.
