Hi there!

I bought an HP dv6-6070 about a year ago, and it comes with two graphics cards. An integrated Intel card and AMD Radeon HD6770M.

I didn't have too many problems switching to the AMD card when I got the laptop, and pretty much forgot about the Intel card until recently. Because for some reason it has reverted to the Intel card, and the Radeon card doesn't even show up in the Device Manager.

I've searched around the web for a possible solution, but haven't found anything that worked for me.

I've checked BIOS, but there's no option to switch graphics cards that I've been able to find, even after installing the update that was supposed to include that option

I was considering that the Radeon card may be defective, but I haven't received any notifications of hardware changes that I can recall.

Has anyone here experienced the same?
