Lenovo y40-80 amd graphics card disabled

2016-05-05, 19:04 PM



I've been having a problem where my graphics card is disabled for my computer and I don't know why. I've tried downloading different/older drivers, I've tried disabling and then reenabling the graphics card, I've looked around the internet and nobody seems to have the a solution for this problem. When I go to the device management menu on my computer it says that the device (the graphics card) is completely updated, enabled, and working properly. But when I go on the Crimson menu for AMD, it tells me that it is disabled. Whenever I try to play a video game on my computer and I go to the graphics options menu, the video game tells me that it is using the integrated graphics instead of the AMD graphics and I have no option to switch. I'm attaching several screen shots to this post so that you can better see my point. Is there any way this could be fixed without me having to send my computer back to lenovo? I am running Windows 10.


Thank you very much for your time.

Hi, I'm having the same issue as the above user. Unfortunately the discussion you suggested is several years old and uses different software (Catalyst Control Center). In the new AMD Radeon settings there doesn't seem to be any way to simply switch the graphics as it simply says it is disabled. Any other solutions would be much appreciated.
