Hello. I'm having a bit of trouble with my Catalyst Control switchable graphics pop up notifcation to come up when I exit an new game or application. This wouldn't be too much of a problem but going to the switch list manually seems to be picky about which programs/games it recognizes.

However I did notice the pop up window seemed to have no such trouble and I'd like to get that activated again somehow.

I have looked around but I can't seem to find any information on how to do this.

System is Windows 7

Graphics card is Radeon HD 7970M and Intel HD Graphics 4000

Laptop is an Alienware M17xR4


I don't think much more information is required but if it is do let me know please.

This is a issue with your laptop need to ask the laptop support.

edit: Did you are anyone disable the switchable/dynamic feature in the bios? IE..changed it from dynamic (whatever) to fixed/static?
