    as usual, "Crosoft says HP is the culprit, HP says it's "Crosoft: since a clean install of W8 pro x64, my DV6 HP laptop only uses the integrated Intel HD chip, I installed the latest Catalyst drivers but the AMD-ATI 6700 M still refuses to work, it's flagged with a yellow triangle, with this message" windows has stopped this device", the CCC does not give any possibility to manually set it to work.
    Question is: how can get the automatic switchability back to work as in W7 ?
    thx

    If you want a "Crosoft" official W7 driver back, note down exact name, vendor ID & hardware ID of your device.

    Follow the "Crosoft" link provided in

    Identify your device (check name, vendor ID & hardware ID) and download the official W7 driver. It worked for my graphics card, I'm happy. I do not take any responsibilities if this crashes your system.

    If this does not apply, try this thread here

    If it's like my Asus laptop with hybrid Nvidia and Intel graphics, you need modified drivers to allow the switching. The ones bundled with Windows or the ones from ATI for any Radeon don't know about the hardware switching. I had the same issue on my Asus when W7 SP1 installed.

    I wonder why they dont work :confused: They work just perfect for my AMD Radeon 6850M just fine.

    If I knew why it's stuck on Intel HD graphic chip, I would have the solution and would not bother you people with this crappy HP graphics !
