Yes I tried it, I dont see that option. and to popeye, yes I only see my Intel driver in device manager.. Any other suggestions?

Go to the folder where you extracted the driver to. Run the setup program and choose Uninstall. Then the custom option and check mark only the Catalyst Control Center and uninstall it. Then start over and this time choose the Install option to re-install CCC.
Reboot and hopefully it is there.

I finally am able to switch gfx card.. BUT my laptop freezes 3-4 times a day and ill have to power it down off and then go back into windows. (causing me to lose my work and anything i didnt save) This has started happening ever since I installed the CCC. Any suggestions on what is causing this? Thanks!

Same problem as tempie, except now ccc won reinstall, whenever I try to install it says all components are up to date and doesn't even give option for ccc, when i run driver detect it says its incompatible even though everything matches up, eg 64-bit, radeon hd 6xxxM-series, etc. IDK what to do . Installed modded bios btw

Finally installed, but lots of missing options, including power. Doesn't matter how many times i uninstall and reinstall, which version, w/e, doesn't work.

Which drivers are you trying to install?

Try using Atiman uninstaller, it has worked for me in the past when I had similar problems. Atiman Uninstaller v.7.0.2.msi

I went back to normal bios, everything works like before now. I've decided not to bother, if a game comes out that I can't play on decent settings, I'll just build a desktop, and I'm never buying anything with an ATI card again, the price difference is just not worth the trouble.
