Dell Inspiron 15r 5537 graphics driver problem

So I just bought up Dell Inspiron 15r 5537 with core i7 4500u,8gb ram,radeon hd 8850m 2gb gddr5. I downloaded Skyrim and it was so laggy as it was running on integrated graphics. I think I need to install AMD drivers. But I don't know which drivers to install. Should I download the drivers from AMD website or Dell website? Both sites have different drivers for 8850m. AMD wesbite has catlyst 13.11 beta and dell has something different.

AMD website- http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows%208%20-%2064

Dell - http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/indhs1/DriverDetails/Product/inspiron-15r-5537?driverId=PWTRP&osCode=W864&fileId=3287401962&languageCode=EN&categoryId=VI

Please help me installing the right drivers.

  1. Download only from Dell. The drivers from Dell are written specifically for your Dell tweaked mobile graphics card.

    I have figured out my problem. It was actually with the drivers. I installed my graphics drivers from Dell website and the game was still laggy. After that I downloaded the latest beta drivers from AMD website and installed with Express option. Now Skyrim runs buttery smooth on Ultra settings.
    If anyone has the same problem try following my instructions.

    Did you install the latest beta drivers from AMD website and selecting express option in the installer?

    I'm using the same laptop with you and did everything you say including installing with express option but still my fps is still low. I'm playing COD MW3, an old game but still low fps.

    I think the beta drivers have some problem. When I downloaded them my laptop couldn't shut down and sometimes it couldn't wake up when the screen turned off. But I could play skyrim with nice frame rates. I had to refresh my laptop. I played Saints Row 4 just 2 days ago with beta drivers and it was pretty nice even on ultra settings. Next day I was not even able to get smooth gameplay even on medium settings then I uninstalled beta drivers and reinstalled stock drivers, I still had the same problem. I'll be testing Dishonored on my laptop tomorrow.

    Do inform me about it. I played Saint Row 4 yesterday with medium setting but still i can see the fps drop even a little bit with a sudden rough game display. Idk why radeon graphic cards are like this. I used to own an nvidia laptop 525m and play cod mw3 with high setting including max AA, still smoother than my new laptop and no lag at all. Sigh:pfff:

    I tried contacting Dell customer support and they said I should update my BIOS to latest version. But nothing seems to be changed in Saints Row 4.
    I just installed Grid 2 and Dishonored. The gameplay is so smooth in Grid 2 on maximum settings when switched to radeon 8850m. And to make sure that it was running on amd, I tried playing it on intel hd 4400 it totally sucked. And for Dishonored, I got constant 60 fps on maximum settings. Dishonored is not a much hardware demanding game so it should obviously run smooth. I'd be uploading some gameplay videos for radeon hd 8850m on my YouTube channel. Make sure you check 'em out.

    Hi there,
    I have same problem. I have new Dell Inspiron 15R 5537, Win7 with core i5 4200u, 8GB RAM, Radeon HD 8850m 2gGB gddr5. Version of drivers for Radeon is 12.105.4.0 (from Dell page). It still doens't work :( can I rollback to earlier version somehow to make it work?
  11. Hello, I think I finally got a solution. For this type of computer with I5 or i7 you need to instal not only Ati Radeon drivers from Dell page http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/inspiron-15r-5537?~ck=mn for Win7 (f.e. AMD Radeon HD 8850M / 8870M Driver), but also intel drivers (for my computer 5537 DELL i5 Intel HD Graphics 4400 Driver). After couple of restarts my Radeon 8850M is finaly working. Hope it helps.

    Are you sure? I was already able to see the 8850m in device manager on the first day I bought the laptop even without updating the drivers. Btw, did you install intel drivers from Dell's website or intel's?

    But you are gonna face some problems with sleep mode.
    I wonder if Dell is going to solve this problem and make some fresh drivers so we can run games normally. I guess they are not.
    Awful company, this is the last time when i buy Dell products.

    that because your drivers is now installed as another one go to device manger you well find it 'R9' instead of "8850m" :-)
  22. funcionando 100%

    utilizar os drives do site da DELL

    1º atualizar bios A8
    2º desinstalar os drives de video usando o (amdcleanuputility.exe)
    3º instalar o drive INTEL
    4º instalar o drive AMD

    5º painel de controle / opções de energia, ativar alto desempenho!!!, logo apos realizar essa alteração já consegui ouvir o ruido característico de quando a placa AMD entra em funcionamento.

    download intel drivers from DELL website and download AMD driver from official AMD site.

    then bring display settings back to default and download AMD_Enduro Fix and apply the fix. Problem ll be solved
  25. i cannot find beta drivers on amd website.. plz provide me the link
  26. Hello guys I have finding solution to the sleep/hibernate problem in my laptop, Dell inspiron 15R 5537, AMD radeon 8850 m and Finally I got it working all smooth! With all my games working at the highest setting , no lag no delay all set and fine.

    All you need to do is :
    1. Downloaded these 2 video drivers on the Dell site for the Inspiron 5537 from here : http://www.dell.com/support/home/in/en/indhs1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=CGR4G File Name:Video_Driver_CGR4G_WN_13.201.0.0_A01.EXE -----> this is for AMD

    and also download the Intel drivers from here : http://www.dell.com/support/home/in/en/indhs1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=Y3FHH&fileId=3394571394&osCode=&productCode=&categoryId=VI File Name:Video_Driver_Y3FHH_WN_10.18.10.3308_A01.EXE

    There is also a alternative version for Intel 4400 (Version 10.18.10.3316, A02) , but it does not work with this machine, I tried it but it didn't work , so don't waste time downloading this version instead download the one I specified before.

    2. Download the DDU soft ware( Display Driver uninstaller)

    3. Reboot Windows 8.1 in Safe Mode and run DDU which will remove your all Drivers, Intel as well as AMD. Now restart the pc in normal mode.

    4. In normal Windows mode - Install the Intel 4400 HD driver from Dell's support site ( link above in point 1). My version is 10.18.10.3308. Restart windows

    5. In normal Windows mode, installed the AMD 8850 driver Version 13.201.0.0, A01, from the Dell support site ( link above in point 1). restarted Windows

    8. On restart to normal Windows mode, I now have only two drivers in Device Manger - Intel HD Graphics Family and AMD Radeon HD8850M

    I just checked and it goes into sleep mode (e.g. via shutting down the lid or singly hit of the hardware start button), and resumes properly as expected using a single click of the hardware start button..

    I also checked that after 5 minutes in my case, when the laptop goes into sleep mode by itself after inactivity., it resumes with a single click of the hardware start button.
    The Sleep hibernate and FPS of games works perfect now!

    Hope this works for u guys!
  27. Best/most stable/highest performance solution by me for Dell Inspiron 3537/5537 on Windows 8.1:

    Uninstall current Intel and AMD drivers in Control Panel, then clean the drivers with DDU in safe mode.
    http://www.wagnardmobile.com/DDU/

    After that install these up-to-date drivers:

    Intel VGA driver: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=VX599&fileId=3424894916&osCode=WB64A&productCode=inspiron-15-5543-laptop&languageCode=EN&categoryId=VI

    Disabling Driver Signature before install this AMD driver modded by me (thanks for the base version for Mahmoud Elfar):
    https://mega.co.nz/#!dM0mQYJR!8CeUKw49k6wvr-X6IaQ2i-qggj4RVUpDgcF8AcYvqMg

    Many version tested with Samsung 840 EVO and the fastest Intel AHCI driver is v13.2.4.1000 (thanks for Fernando on Win-Raid forum for the driver collection):
    https://mega.co.nz/#!dMkRWCjT!vZkgbC1ogRxm8fmX53Q23c6LhABE-tfdB3K3HucFhuo

    Dell 1707 drivers also contains the latest 1705 drivers: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=G3YFY

    Intel Chipset driver: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=8GCTD

    Intel Management Engine driver: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=3TY1R

    Realtek RTS5179 card reader driver: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=8TFTW

    Use Realtek LAN driver from Realtek website: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/

    I had sleep/shutdown issues, now everything is stable and never had any problem and with Fast Boot, the boot is really instant (1-2 sec, cold boot).

    I hope I could help.

  29. Maybe you can try to download from professional driver providing websites. If you don't want to waste time to search, you can try to use driver tool such as Drive The Life!

  31. Okay here's the thing. I bought this laptop in March of 2014 (mainly for gaming purposes). Worked like a charm.
    Then "Watch Dogs" came along, and it lagged like hell. I updated the graphics drivers from AMDs site (which specifically said that they would give a better frame rate on the game) and they did. BUT I also got the issues:


    Anyways, I researched on this for months and this is what I finally know:

    AMD is rolling out drivers to increase performance. However, those drivers aren't well tweaked to run on your machine, that is the Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 (many other laptops also have similar issues). These drivers just give better performance.

    Dell, however, is modifying those drivers to run on your machine smoothly, at the cost of performance.

    You can download the AMD drivers from AMDs site, and the Dell drivers come in the Windows Update menu itself.

    So, the choice I guess is yours: either take Dell drivers and avoid these issues, or take AMD drivers for better performance.

    I personally chose AMD, and disabled Sleep mode, Hibernate mode, and now I don't close the lid of the laptop, or leave it on for a long while (to prevent automatic timeout)

    HOWEVER, if I disable the AMD graphics card in device manager, of course I can;t do heavy graphics work, BUT the sleep and hibernate modes and all start working perfectly again, so this is something I do from time to time. Say, if I have to go out somewhere for a short while and I don't want to close my laptop, then I just disable the AMD graphics card and then put it to sleep or close the lid. Then when I come back, I just open the lid, enable the GPU and start working again.

    For now, this is the only solution I know of. If anybody has a better solution, it'd be great if you could share it here.

    Hope this helps :)

    Thanks
