I recently got an HP dv6 laptop with dedicated Radeon 6490M graphics. I updated Catalyst Control Centre to 11.1 but now, any settings I change in the switchable graphics won't seem to save or stay when I press Apply as they revert back immediately. This is with the High Performance, Power-Saving, and Not Assigned settings.
Help would be appreciated
I checked it out but I'm not sure what it has to do with the Switchable Graphics. Also, I can't use any downloads from AMD as when I try, it says that I have to use the manufacturer's programs, which I guess is HP.
I've already tried downloading and installing that but it didn't fix my problem. I used HP's Instant Support Professional and that was their solution, which didn't work. The second time, they said to recover my computer to factory settings, since it worked when I first got the laptop.
By the way the model is the Pavilion dv6t-6b00 Quad Edition (I think since my CPU is quad-core). I think the download is the same though. Thanks for helping though
Hi. I managed to fix this problem today on my laptop. I happened to see your post while searching for a solution. What i did is i downloaded catalyst from hp drivers section(catalyst from ati website was giving me that problem). the driver that came with that catalyst didnt work, so i used windows update to get a working driver. so, in theory, what you would need to do is download catalyst from hp website, and while installing you select custom, and click next until it gives you a list of programs you wish to install. you should deselect all except catalyst. (do NOT install the gpu driver, ONLY catalyst)
i will post a link for the driver for my laptop model, but since you will only need catalyst, it shouldnt be a problem.
for windows 32bits -> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadInde...
for windows 64bits -> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadInde...
you could also search for your model, but i would recommend not installing the driver anyway. just get it from windows update, i supposed you already have the driver anyway. Good luck.
Thanks to all you guys that replied Instead of trying to fix it though, I decided to perform a system recovery, which worked pretty well. Now the Catalyst works fine, although freezing a bit each time I click Apply, and my settings save. I hope this problem doesn't come back. If it does, then I will be very unhappy.
