Hi!

I reinstalled Windows 7, and afterwards I have not been able to make the switch from the Power saving GPU to the High Performance GPU in my HP Pavilion DV7-4013 laptop PC.

 

I went from Win7 Home Premium 64-bit to Win7 Ultimate 64-bit (SP1).

 

In my Windows 8 (Pro 64-bit) it detected the 5000-series one (http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/DKDexter999/AMD%20support/Capture1.png) but in the Windows 7 it did not (http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/DKDexter999/AMD%20support/Udklip2.png).

 

I installed the most recent driver using the AMD-auto-detect-thingy.

 

When I open up the AMD VISION Engine Control Center, and press the "High-performance GPU", a dialog-popup says that the switch has been made, but in reality and in the AMD PowerXpress menu, it hasn't.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That helped, thank you.

 

I would've thought the ATI self-detect-thingy would've been able to figure that out, but in fact it's probably more like a self-destruct-thingy...

 

You also cannot believe how stupid I feel for not doing that the first time around... I am an IT-supporter myself
