E420 Graphics Problem

2011-12-01, 1:45 AM

I have just reinstalled a fresh version of Windows 7 Pro.

 

How do I use my AMD HD 6630 Card? Im trying to game but am unable too. 

Do I need to install extra drivers for this card? It says I only have the Intel HD Graphics Family?

 

Cheers

Hi toddy,

 

Yes, you need to install switchable graphics driver:- http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-77300

 

Hope this helps.

Hey,

 

Ok so I have installed it and got it working. However when I play a Game it doesnt fill the screen? It has the black bars down the side, kinda like aspect ratio. How can I turn this off? Also I have a feeling my card isnt working too well? Its not running games very well when it should. aka counter strike 1.6

I would suggest to make sure all drivers are current by running ThinkVantage System update:- http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=TVSU-UPDATE

I have done the update. Yet I still feel my grapics are under performing. Are there aspect ratio settings anywhere?? I cant seem to play any games in widescreen?
