i have no idea what i have done but for some reason my relatively new laptop (2 months) doesn't use the graphics card that came with it at all. the card doesn't even show up in device manager (AMD Radeon HD 6470M or at least i'm pretty sure it is, can't know because it doesn't show up when i try to manage my devices.) i know for certain that im not crazy and that i never had a graphics card because i recall switching the settings from quality to performance through catalyst control center, an amd app, that is also not on my computer anymore.
screenshots of both cards.
currently i am trying to install various AMD applications but keep getting errors.
another question: since the card didn't show up in my device manager before does that mean my laptop wasn't using the card at all, or was it using the card but the card just didn't show up?
EDIT: i tested the game i was playing again, and now it runs a lot smoother. but could you elaborate on that "changing" graphics card thing. i still don't understand if both cards are being used at the same time.
I was playing fable and the game was really choppy and slow. but now it runs fine. i have no idea what happened maybe i my computer was just running slow that day or there were some background programs that i missed.
