how do I install ati updates if i have switchable graphics (i5 y560 / ATI 5730).

2010-08-30, 9:54 AM

Is there a way of updating my ATI drivers if I have a y560 w/ switchable graphics?

 

Obviously official installer doesn't work. 

 

I read a 'workaround' which involved running the official installer, waiting for it to grab the files then manually updating. However this didn't work, the official installer wouldn't start the download as it thinks I'm incompatible, so I can't even get to the stage where I can work with the raw install files. 

 

Also if I do something like this, wouldn't it break catalyst control centre? and if so breaking the switchable graphics feature?

I actually found someone's 'hacked' or repackaged drivers for 10.7 at notebookreview forums and used it, worked fine, updated and kept switchable graphics / CCC panel

 

Haven't thoroughly tested but ran some game benchmarks (far cry 2, dirt 2) and its definitely still working at least LOL
