hello hardware analysis and all forumers..

I have problem with my sony vaio c series for almost a year now on how to switch my graphics to my dedicated 1Gb Video Card. I try playing online games and do some PVP's but everytime i used control my videocard( iguess) beeps and hangs my pc. I am afraid doing experiments on my own without prior advice (lack of confidence) maybe it will make a disaster with my laptop..
Is their a driver to install in order to used my ATI 1Gb? Btw my system performance is only 5.4 ;/ which is very very bad. When checking dxdiag i found out the used chip in display in my built in intel Video card.

here is my specs
Intel Core i5-2410M Processor 2.30GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.90GHz
14-inch WXGA (1366 x 76
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Radeon HD 6630M 1GB VRAM switchable to Intel HD Graphics 3000

i already checking my video card in GPU-Z but the working video card is my build in not my 1Gb =/

i appreciate your help and answers

more power!

Well, here is the official page for AMD drivers:

Now, to be sure that its not faulty hardware try running a game that has a built-in benchmark tool, you can usually find it in the main menu of the game once you run it, if its a good one it should provide you with system specs of the system, the frames per second and (hopefully) the video card it is using.


I saw you made a post on other forums, but you haven't replied yet. Well my suggestion as that guy from the other forum is to download this Bios update:

Also, I would suggest you download the newest driver from the AMD link I gave you, but just in case it gives you trouble you can download the original driver from Sony's site:

Bump the thread in case you need any help.

Everything I write is Sarcasm.
