When i used this ati  6650M its ok but ati M880g whit ati 4250 does´nt work.

When i used autodetect  ....then at the end of download writes : could not open file. This process cannot access the file becaue it is being used by another process.

Switchable graphics drivers are not supported on the AMD site. Your laptop manufacturer has customized them to work with your computer applications, bios, etc. You will have to go to their website and get newer drivers... if there are any. Laptop mfgs have a short memory when it comes to keeping graphics drivers updated. One, maybe three updates, then good luck. There are ways around this, and you may have to use Google to find modded versions.

Hi. Latest drivers from HP are from february (2011), may(2011) and september(2011). First - its old     Second - dont function properly

Image - http://i49.tinypic.com/qogiki.jpg

When i used ati catalyst i had this : http://i48.tinypic.com/s2d6bq.jpg

6650M is ok but M800G dont function

 

When I downloaded one driver instalation for M800G  and one for 6650M, I had this: http://i45.tinypic.com/hs0w2c.jpg

Its looks good, but not.....  Power gaming graphic dont function

 You wrote - its HP problem

HP wrote - its ati problem

Why i cant have latest graphic driver? I have low fps in 2012 games, I dont think that I have bad graphic, but i have old and bad drivers. Its not HP problem, its your (and especially my) problem, its ati graphic, not HP graphic

Your the one that fell for the switchable graphics gimmick/scheme....just like communism, sounds good on paper but just doesn't work in the long run. Your laptop manufacturer took perfectly good drivers and modified them to work on their laptop. Only modified drivers will work....generic drivers will not (which is all AMD offers). Thank HP. Then they say AMD's fault? You made a decision that you will have to live with....check out HP's laptop forum.

Edit: At least warn your friends about 'switchable' graphics. It doesn't matter if its ATI or Nvidia.
