    Intel HD Graphics & ATI Combo (Alpha) - by nIGHTmAYOR


    ** Project discontinued due to lack of interest / rarity of hardware **

    Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 & ATI Combo Alpha (by nIGHTmAYOR)

    Full Name : Intel (R) HD Graphics

    Version: 20.21.4459 Alpha Version

    Rebranded : Intel (R) HD Graphics Family

    Platform : Windows 10 x64 (Backward Compatibility 7 , 8 , 8.1)


    Q : What's this driver ?
    A : This is a work in progress attempt to revive custom combo laptops done
    pre the era of "Dynamic Switchable Graphics Technology" developed by AMD
    to co-work with Intel , as to let these laptops still have switchable graphics on
    Windows 10

    Attention :
    1 - This driver is aimed for a pretty specific laptops released with GPU specs :
    Intel HD Graphics 2000 or 3000 with early generation switchable ATI GPU combo
    If you do not possess such hardware do not even attempt to install this driver

    2 - This is not a tested or guaranteed stable version what so ever it is released
    under the agreement that it may crash your system , require you to reset it or may
    make you lose data , it is out for Alpha and Beta testers only under no guaranty
    what so ever it may work or behave well

    3 - I do not own such a hardware , I am just doing this project in a blind manner to
    help others

    1 - Make sure you have System Restore enabled before installation for safety

    2 - Also it is recommended to have the latest mother board Bios installed

    3 - Run the steps according to their exact numbers

    4 - Always use run as Administrator to Run a step

    5 - Starting step 2 the PC will restart so make sure you save all your work

    6 - If you have already installed several other drivers and this one fail to install , a probable cause might be you need to remove previous drivers , if found to be hard try to update to Windows default first

    7 - A red dialogue should pop up to inform you that you are about to install an unsigned driver where you have to click install to that , it's what we are doing here anyways

    8 - Some Anti-Viruses have odd features called "Containment" or "Run Virtual" and sometimes these take control and setup the driver in a virtual machine like environment and not really install it (Example Comodo or Kaspersky) in all cases if you want to ease up your life just disable your Anti-Virus during setup , you can always scan the driver first just to make sure everything is clean and to note , this one shouldn't be hated by any Anti-Virus as it is constructed from all official files

    9 - When all steps are done make sure to enable Intel Control Panel through Right Clicking Desktop > Graphics Property or alternative translation

    10- Enabling Tray Icon is accessible through : Right Clicking Desktop > Graphics Options or alternative translation

    11- If you can't find Graphics Properties / Options do re-install the driver

    12- It is better to make sure Intel Control Panel is set to the following :
    3D > 3D Preferences > Performance
    3D > Vertical Sync > Applications Settings Power > Plugged In > Maximum Performance

    13- That's it , you are done , dismissed

    P.S
    a. Consider this driver a beta until someone reports back it gave him no problems

    b. I do not take personal demands (Like for example do not even bother ask for 32 bit
    version)


    Cheers,

    no sweety i did not ask from you to take any risk , wait till someone who knows stuff about beta testing take the bullet , there might be a long process of tweaking before this thing is final .

    Thanks for making that project.
    I tried it since I had an Intel HD Graphics and I thought it would work with the AMD Radeon HD 7650M even if it wasn't in the supported models...
    Can I hope for a future support for my GPU ?

    It was in French but it basically said that I didn't meet the requirements, I didn't have the required configuration.

    I have had no serious responses for this thread actually that I plan to discard the whole thing .

    Like I said I needed some Alpha/Beta testers but apparently such hardware turned out to be rare unlike other hardware I released drivers for .

    So I wont be just developing and providing for just 1 person or 2 , that is highly irrational .

    I'm giving this 30 days from day of posting then locking it down actually .

    @DrGouh , I highly appreciate your interest but since I had no feed backs on previous release I cant just continue developing it .

    @nIGHTmAYOR

    There are more than one people that are interested in this switchable driver.(I can provide links)

    I'm a B.S.c computer science grad.

    They apparently afraid to install it.(And I also a bit)

    Can we think about a solution ?

    Thanks for your interest but you are only speaking for yourself , as of now the project is discontinued .

    Sorry for the inconvenience and best regards .

    P.S On a side notice who would even bother try to hijack a decade old piece of hardware , if owners had any money they would rather buy new ones , and even if it was about mining then clearly one would opt to hack a capable machine , a miner would kill that old tech right off and render its users unhappy , this is all about sympathy for the incapable hon , hope i am not offending .
