Windows 7 cant find graphic card


I bought a HP pavilion dv6 3025sy 6 days ago and everything was fine till yesterday. Because sometimes it isint using the main graphic card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650), it shows that laptop is using integrated graphic card, and then there is no ATI driver icon near the "watch bar" where it is suposed to be.
I would like to know whats the problem.

rokmenas, welcome to the Seven Forums.

I would start with re-installing both the Intel and AMD driver from HP,

as one won't work without the other installed.

Also just in case it is set to auto download and install and it was the problem. set Windows Update to only notify but not install anything,

Windows Update Settings - Change

I figured out if the pc isint plugged to the electricity the laptop uses the integrated (weaker) graphic card because it isint useing as much energy as radeon.

Anyway thanks for the help stormy13.
