Windows 7: Switch Display Drivers.

24 Dec 2012   #1

Switch Display Drivers.

I have bought HP Pavilion m6-1006tx almost half year.

It has 2 display drivers. One is the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000, another one is AMD Radeon HD 7600M Series.

How do I switch to AMD Radeon HD 7600M from Intel HD Graphics 4000?

PS: My bios cannot change those settings.

The system is set up to switch between the 2 depending on whether you are on battery or AC power, and depending on the graphics needs of what you are doing. You should have a choice to configure by right clicking on the desktop (see 1st link)

There also appears to be 2 modes on newer PCs, Fixed Mode or Dynamic Mode.

It seems some models do not have the BIOS setting for fixed/dynamic, but are always Fixed. I cannot find specifically your laptops definitive info. You might want to ask on the HP forums. A Guy
