I have a Samsung series 7 laptop and I'm having some problems with the graphics cards. The laptop has on-board Intel HD 3000 and an ATI Radeon 5000 series dedicated graphics card and my problem is that it seems like the on-board card is the only one that gets used. I thought that when I connected the laptop to power it switched from the on-board to the ATI but recently it seems like it only uses the on-board. I tried disabling the on-board but the the ATI still won't turn on. Any help would be much appreciated.

it really depends on the setup, probably just like nvidia Optimus your computer only activated the "dedicated" gpu when required to test that use a game or a program that uses a lot of gpu processing, most of games will do, so use a program just like MSI Afterburner to check the GPU Usage %, if it don't move, probably you need to change some configurations, but probably it is only activating when required.
