This is from the .inf file for the driver:

 

"ATI Mobility FireGL V5700" = ati2mtag_M76, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9591&SUBSYS_212717AA
"ATI Mobility FireGL V5700 " = ati2mtag_M76_PXAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9591&SUBSYS_212617AA
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series" = ati2mtag_M72_PRAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95C4&SUBSYS_211017AA
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series " = ati2mtag_M72_PRAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95C4&SUBSYS_210E17AA
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series  " = ati2mtag_M72_PXAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95C4&SUBSYS_210F17AA
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series   " = ati2mtag_M72_PXAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95C4&SUBSYS_211117AA
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650" = ati2mtag_M76_PRAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9591&SUBSYS_211717AA
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 " = ati2mtag_M76_PXAI, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9591&SUBSYS_211617AA

 

Also it installed and worked fine on my W500 with the FireGL V5700 so the answer is yes it should work fine for HD3650 and HD3470 as well.

I wouldn't know since i don't use the RC release and Lenovo doesn't provide a lot of info for the beta drivers. I guess you have to wait for someone to try it out for an answer unless you want to try it yourself and let everyone know if it works ok. Someone have to try or it's impossible to say. My guess is that it will work fine with the RC as well, but i'm pretty sure Lenovo will only officially support the RTM release of Win7. So the answer from Lenovo will most likely be that it's not supported and you just have to try.

Just installed the drivers on my T400 (Win7, x64, RTM). They work perfectly.

What diappoints me a little is that an older version of the CCC is included, so it does not know about switchable graphics yet. I will probably install this part from the current ATI dedicated drivers to have the nice feature of automatic switching on power change (battery -> internal, AC -> dedicated).

 

Thanks Lenovo : )

 

Greetz!

did you try to install a newer CCC without touching the display drivers themself?

Tried, yes. Unfortunately I did not succeed. Seems the provided CCC version is the current one (9.9). I did not have the time to put further work in there but switching with CCC is probably not possible under Win7 yet. Running Vista x64 with CCC 9.7 I was able to.

Anyone gotten Switchable Graphics working with Power Manager 3.01a or anything that is newer than beta 2.43? I can see that they have modified Power Manager 3.01a with a new style and a background image for Windows 7, but Switchable Graphics does not work on that build.

I got it to work with the 2.43 (win 7 beta) PM. However, i cannot switch Graphics on a non Admin acct. Normally i have two accounts, one admin, one user. The Admin acct can switch graphics, the non admin account cannot. I get an error "System is unable to switch to High-Performance Graphics"....

 

Any solution? Is this a known problem?
