switch between those videocards in order to save battery when you don't need the good videocard.
Good to know, thanks.
The newer version driver
should be the better choice.
Just felt right to notice:
These drivers will not function with any other product. View the README file for installation information and the RELEASE NOTES for driver version details. This driver package contains version 188.8.131.52.2509 (184.108.40.2069) for Windows 7* 64-bit and Windows Vista* 64-bit.
. . .
These software drivers are generic versions and can be used for general purposes. However, computer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) may have altered the features, incorporated customizations, or made other changes to the software or software packaging they provide. To avoid any potential installation incompatibilities on your OEM system, Intel recommends that you check with your OEM and use the software provided by your system manufacturer.
Did you sift through this readme
? (kinda lengthy, didn't feel like it myself, heh) When you first received the computer, did it work? Because that would be very bad form, and would be that much stranger if it were the case. If it did, maybe there was some other software involved.
Have you tried installing the Intel drivers/software and AMD drivers/software in different orders? Maybe one likes to overpower the other somehow, like when I install Quicktime or something and it overtakes the file associations that I don't want it to have. Or maybe disabling one or the other in Device Manager and installing the drivers/software from there, then enabling the disabled one and doing the same for it.
Just throwing out ideas sporatically, sorry I'm not a sharpshooter when it comes to this.
