I'm having trouble with my Inspiron 15R Special Edition and the Catalyst Control.

All the information about my notebook is here > http://speccy.piriform.com/results/h21orWUAXS0hvRnQkzbI5of

The VGA is an AMD Radeon HD 7730M, I'm using the driver provided by Dell.

The problem: Some games have a problem with Switchable Graphics. I configure the game like High Performance. Once I open and close the game, it returns to "Not Assigned".

Before I open the game:

After I close the game:

So, basically, as the games that have the problem are always "Not assigned", they don't use my VGA and the performance is poor!

I first realized that with Diablo III and LoL. So I reinstalled the OS (clean install), and installed all the drivers. I also updated the bios to A04 (Dell).

The problem was gone (Diablo III works fine now), BUT it appeared again with OTHER games! Guitar Hero III and Guitar Hero World Tour worked fine before the clean install and the bios update, now both have the same "Not assigned" problem.

I've tested two or three Catalyst Beta Drivers and none of them even worked (the Catalyst Control Center didn't open).


What can I do?

Thank you!

The only problem: "The following notebooks are not compatible: notebooks equipped with switchable graphics."

I tried to use the Update software and it says that there's no update.

Per the veriage on that link that I supplied previously, I would recommend that you contact Dell for support on this.
