Windows 7: Help me set primary adapter on AMD Catalyst 6520G+7670M

Hi,
thanks for your reply. It did help. I installed the 14.4 ATI CCC and it does recognize a 6000-7000 model. But again, not specific 7670M.
It's kind of frustrating though, the whole driver searching situation. Makes me really doubt of purchasing a PC with this card-combo ever again. I don't know who to blame, AMD or ATI or maybe even ASUS for building a PC with this many problems and not doing a damn thing about it.

Anyway, I'll keep searching for other drivers, just in case. If you have any other advice, please let me know.
Thanks!

There's a 14.4? Cool, how times have changed. Yeah, the 6000-7000 is a series actually - so most problems with the drivers are that they are not specific, but just go for a broad range of cards to fix possible issues.
A few of the older drivers recognized both cards, but it's not really needed - they still work regardless.
The driver download and search procedure is a pain, but you only need to do it maybe once or twice for a PC.

Now here's where I do not agree with you - apart from the BSoDs I've had and the pain/suffering that they cause, the combo-card is absolutely amazing for energy consumption and for the 7670m life expectancy too. There's plenty of benefits to be had. The only problem being that certain games cannot recognize a sleeping card and therefore revert to the 6520G, without ever addressing the 7670m. But it is only a handful at best.
The cards are quite experimental, so... you can't blame innovation .

It seems you've solved the problem, which was the intention - I'm glad something I wrote some time ago helped.
