Hey guys, I'm having a very... Disappointing issue with my laptop. It is a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop with AMD Crossfire (apparently that's rare in a laptop) and a Quad Core processor that I haven't discovered the name/manufacturer of yet. Most games, it runs quite well but could still do better. Basically, my main issue with this is Battlefield 3. I get a maximum video setting of "Custom > Lower than the Low preset". Maybe I'm not using Crossfire correctly? Whatever it is, I need to know so I can fix it! Any help is much appreciated.
what resolution are you trying to play at, set it to 1280x720. should help a bit.
I'm not sure what specs you got, seems to be an llano or trinity with dedicated radeon on the side and all that in crossfire as you say. Still, that's not the best combination for gaming but it should run the game at lowest settings.
Go to control panel, hit system, look at what CPU it says you have
One sec guys, I'll edit this post with the specs soon.
Not sure what the normal way to set this out is but here's what I've got:
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 CPU
AMD A6-3410MX 52 °C
Llano 32nm Technology RAM
4.00 GB DDR3 @ 672MHz (9-9-9-24) Motherboard
Hewlett-Packard 358D (Socket FS1) 52 °C Graphics
Generic PnP Monitor (1366x768@60Hz)
AMD Radeon HD 6520G (HP) 52 °C
AMD Radeon HD 6750M (HP) 52 °C
CrossFire Disabled Hard Drives
466GB Hitachi HTS545050B9A300 SATA Disk Device (SATA) Optical Drives
hp DVD A DS8A5LH SATA CdRom Device Audio
IDT High Definition Audio CODEC
One thing that seems to be the obvious problem is that it says Crossfire Disabled, when I have it enabled in Catalyst Control Centre. Maybe it's just the specification-finding program I used...
Ok, thanks. I was convinced that it was a gaming laptop when I heard "Dual Graphics Cards" and "Quad Core" so I understand why I overlooked it. Is there any way I can upgrade my laptop? I know that it's hard, and that it voids the warranty, but I would like to know if there is a way to upgrade that comes out cheaper than getting a new PC.
P.S. If you guys find out about any good deals on a good gaming PC (preferably laptop) please tell me!
