    Hi, I just found this thread, and I had to become a member so I can participate with testing.

    I have been going through a lot of AMD drivers while mixing and matching them to perform well, but none work in the lastest build of Windows.

    To help with troubleshooting, I found using AMD later builds of Catalyst installed after installing AMD drivers help.
    Also I installed the latest builds of C++ (2005 on up to latest builds). I also check and remove all older installs of C++ variants that are pushed by any driver packages during their installations.

    Installed all the DX packages from online installer.

    Disabled DX12 withing the program features.

    Trouble is no matter how I setup the system, drivers, AMD device disabled, or bios setting... the boot up into desktop will be fast and very low fan use, but eventually the speed increases to medium. I found if I disable the AMD driver it will disable the chip, but not the ram. If I leave the AMD driver enabled, it will place ram and gpu speeds in stand by or low power mode at minimum base speeds. So any way, the AMD graphics is never totally controlled by the drivers.

    Also having the bios set at Fixed, it removes all BSOD issues, just some drivers will allow random in and out pop ups of black window processes from Catalyst control manager. Some are blank screen or a 1 to 2 second window.

    I like the WDDM drivers over the drivers released by automatic update. Bare Crimson drivers done by inf install, are ok.
    Though no true fix for interplay with Intel and Windows 10.

    Some drivers seem to allow proper config, but in reality WIndows 10 does not allow proper switch mode with 2011 system boards using H65 chipsets. Also some chipsets may be early 2011, not late 2011. Intel has found that early 2011 chipsets are bad. they only function well with pci-e ports 0 and 1, which our systems use more than the two ports. i have a late motherboad, but I fee thatl I have the older chips set. I truely feel no 2011 system board will properly function with switch graphics because of the intel chip flaw.

    it would be nice to have a driver to disable the AMD gpu and ram for those with H65 chipsets who have issues with WIndows 10 and AMD drivers. reason being the GPU or RAM will run in background even if not used, and consume power and raise fan speeds. because of this, I have been modding my laptops cooling system to compensate for the additional power use with dedicated AMD graphics not having full ability to shut down, which the system is capable of doing by bios routine.

    I am still trying various options as i find time for, as the best option is keeping a minimal AMD driver installation, with fixed set in bios.

    Hi, I also have a laptop with HD3000 and AMD 6770m (supposedly) switchable graphics. I'd be glad to test, how's the revision 7 going? :)

    Hi, nice to see that there is someone still using old laptop :)

    I restored an old HP DV6-6156sl with Intel HD 3000 + AMD 6940M (but in some screen is shown as 7400m).
    Right after factory reset everything worked fine, I had Catalyst icon in the notification area and I was able to configure which gpu for each application.
    But I restored this laptop to play old games, so I'm looking for the "best driver" for the ati card to squeeze all the power I could :)

    I installed AMD Catalyst 15.7.1 from AMD site and I end with no gpu configured, low resolution and Ati Catalyst warning after windows 7 startup.
    I reinstalled the driver package (ATI + Intel together) taken from HP site and resolution is good bow but not gpu type config for application and old ati driver.


    Any suggestion to have a little more updated ati driver?

    I cannot seem to find revisions 5-6 anywhere, with revision 4 being corrupted whenever I attempt to download it.
    Can revision 6 please be reuploaded?

    Hi guys can anyone help me out? I'm trying to correctly install Win10 Home x64 on an old DELL Vostro 3350 that I put a new SSD in.
    I remember that even on Win7 these driver installations were pretty fragile.

    I don't necessarily need a switchable graphics option, however I would like to use Win10 problem free (i.e. automatic updates). I'd prefer to use the Radeon and disable the Intel HD but the other way around is OK to me. I don't seem to have a Fixed / Dynamic option available in my BIOS.

    Can you maybe reupload revision 6 ?
    Should I install "Leshcat" driver ?
    Or use Windows Update ?

    This thread is closed for good , Beta testing with randoms proved to be a wrong approach , I keep getting mixed reviews where ones claim things are working fine and some claim other wise so I tested by uploading something that doesn't work and had a bunch claim it does work so I stopped .

    I am continuing only with threads I have access to its physical hardware .
