Just got a new Edge E520 NZ33MUK , specs here: http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Lenovo_ThinkPad_Edge_E520_1076383.html
Having an AMD 6630, one of the first things I wanted to do was try out the gaming ability, so with the system pretty much factory fresh I installed Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Basically Oblivion hangs during loading for me. Specifically It hangs immediately before the tan menu screen appears.
It doesn't say that it's jammed up, and if I ctr-alt-del to task manager it says 'running' i.e. fine, but the screen is just black nothing happening.
So far I have tried:
Any ideas / Anyone in a similar situation?

Can you force Catalyst to run it on the discrete card?
Yeah I've set it to High Performance in catalyst if that's what you mean.. still not working.
It jams up just as it starts having to render stuff at the game resolution, so I thought it might be to do with the Graphics.
But can't see what else to try.
Any other ideas?

I'm running Windows 7 pro 64bit.
The Video and audio drivers are all up to date.
The Video driver I'm running is 8.811.1.5000
Do you think its a driver issue that might be resolved?
Anybody else able to play Oblivion?
