I'm pretty new here - I mean, I've read posts here over the years but this is my first time actually making a post, sorry it has to be a plea for help
Anyway, I recently purchased and received an HP Envy-3200 laptop with switchable graphics between an Intel HD 4000 and Radeon HD 7750M. The problem mainly happen in Skyrim, I believe, but could be happening in other applications, too. In the initial menu before the game starts where you choose video options, the only card available in the Intel HD graphics. In the "switchable graphics" menu I have both the TESV launcher and TESV itself set to run on "high performance" (to use the radeon), but it seems to change nothing.
I think that it may be affecting other games as well. Even simpler games like Starcraft II suffer from framerate problems compared to what they should be getting (I mean, I imagine the card could get at least 30 FPS on lowish settings, but it's getting about 12)
I've read about certain a certain BIOS options that can change the graphics mode from dynamic to fixed, but it seems that the Envy 15-3200 series doesn't actually have that options.
