Hello 2 all
I am VERY satisfied with my new lenovo g770 except one thing!
All drivers i needed for Windows XP Pro SP3 are there and working fine.
But i can't get my AMD HD6650M getting to work in XP! (HD6650M is running great in Win 7)
Problem might be the switching between the onboard (or better incpu ) Intel HD3000 graphics ( HD3000 works fine in XP )
and the extern AMD HD6650M. Did someone else has this problem and find a solution?
( I tried patching other drivers to proper ven 1002 dev 6741 subsys 397617aa but no success )
Any help is really appreciated!
Thank you very much

Hi and welcome to the forum!
To the best of my knowledge, Win XP doesn't support graphics card switching. I suggest to consider upgrading to Win 7.

Hi there and thanks for your reply.
As i wrote this card runs fine in Win 7
I multiboot 6 OS + memtest on my G770 and i need this card to work also under XP. ( If possible)
But thanks for the hint that XP maybe dosent support any GFX switching. I try to check this out.
Any other good advice is still very welcome.

On my G770 Bios i only can select between UMA ( integrated Intel GFX ) and switchable.
So i cant force discrete to use by default i guess(??) Maybe i need a bios update ( or unlock ??)
Looks like XP really cant switch GFX for performance / accu lifetime
Same problem with NVIDIA GFX cards useing OPTIMUS tech in XP / VISTA
Thanks for all your help!
G770 is still a great buy!
