Hello people, i am having trouble installing AMD/ATI Raideon 6700M HD graphics card driver and software on my Hp Pavilion DV6 6145tx laptop pc.

I have tried downloading and installing the BETA driver for windows 8 however, that doesn't seem to work. For example, i cannot switch between intel video card or ATI video card. I had those properties in windows 7 but now they are all gone in windows 8. Their is an option in the BIOS stating : what video mode to choose such as: dynamic or static.

So i choose the dynamic one in windows 8 and still i am unable to install the ati video card driver on my windows 8 operating system.

Thanks all.

Plz help me solve this issue.

May help other people using amd cards in windows 8.

Did you check to see if your laptop supports Windows 8? Not all do. Did you read "installing Mobility Drivers" ? If your laptop supports Win8, then HP will have drivers for it. Go to HP support and download the drivers designed for your laptop.

Edit: Dynamic setting means the laptop will use either the IGP (Intel) or the AMD (discrete) graphics depending on the application. If you set it to will use the AMD graphics.
