T400 - Video Feature - Switchable Graphics

2008-11-02, 10:24 AM

ThinkVantage System Update detected, downloaded and according to me installed the update 'ThinkPad Video Features (Switchable Graphics) for Windows Vista Version 8.52.4.4-080919a-069896C-Lenovo. The status reads 'Did not Install' even though I have selected 'Automatically install upon download'.

 

The side effect is that I do not see the 'Catalyst Control Centre' in the Notification Area or anywhere else on the computer.

 

How should I fix this? Is there a way to get the System Update to download and install it again?

 

Thanks!

The issue has been finally resolved. I had to manually download and install the switchable graphics software from the lenovo website. I can see the Catalyst Control Centre back.

Thanks.

Hi,
This post is valid only if the Switchable Graphics option is missing. I don't have any such problem. What is missing is the Catalyst Control Centre.
Any ideas?

Thanks!
