Re: Help!!!Please

I presume your issue is with the first error message? Could it be that you have switched to the on-board Intel adapter in your power settings? W500 has "switchable graphics" feature (you can find threads on this forum discussing it). The ATI Catalyst would not run if your selected adapter is not ATI.

Open power manager, or download it and install........ right click the battery icon on the taskbar, go to performance mode, select high performance. Repeat this and check to see if the black circle is still next to the high performance setting (aka the ATI card). If it is not, you need to get the latest switchable graphics driver, from lenovos site (which is what happened for me). Install this, enable the ATI card thru power manager, and CCC will run. "Energy saving" = Intel card, "High Performance" = FireGL, which uses CCC.
