Lenovo Z575 VGA drivers problem

2012-06-18, 22:09 PM

Hi Guys,

 

As you probably know, VGA driver for this notebook is a little outdated. I've got a problem with Rage. It keeps crashing after a few minutes of play. I assume that it also runs with the integrated GPU only, becouse there are any differences in performance between "High Performance" and "Power Saving" modes in ATI drivers.

 

So I decided to install the newest Catalyst 12.6 beta which has full support for mobile and swichable graphics. Alfer doing that, Rage finallny works like a charm - no crashes and big performance inprovement, but the OS started to freeze, and crash. Also other games started to work worse. On official Catalyst 12.4 form AMD site is the same as on 12.6 beta.

 

And the most strange thing is that my friend has the Asus notebook with the same CPU and GPU specs, and he hasn't got any problems using the newest drivers form AMD site.

 

If you have any sugestions how to solve that, or what's happening, please help me ;)

Solved! See the solution

I would appreciate if you could give me link to Z575 compatible drivers.

 

I have the last ones from official Lenovo site but they aren't quite good. I tried 12.5 , 12.4 and 12.3 and every single driver version had some kind of problem, mostly with dedicated 6650m.

 

Thank you!
