Dell inspiron 15r se 7520 switchable graphics problem

Hello,

 

I just got a laptop Inspiron 15R SE 7520 and I'm having some graphic card issue. Technically I was suppose to have the AMD graphic card working, but when I look at the configurations I see 2 video cards: One that is an Intel HD integrated card and the AMD. The one that it's working is the Intel. How do I make the AMD work instead?

 

Thanks,

Shanthosh

Hi Rajath, I am having a similar problem to shanthosh. I have the same laptop with the same internals, and cannot switch to my high performance gpu. I have already upgraded my bios to a04. In your stated solution you said:

" 5. If you want to permanently turn on the AMD Switchable Graphics, Click on “Power” tab and then on “Switchable Graphics Method.”

6. Check “Select the graphics processor manually or based on power source”

7. Click on “High-performance GPU” and click “Apply.”  "

However in catalyst control centre i do not have such an option under the power tab. The options given are "PowerPlay"

and "Switchable Graphics" Under switchable graphics the options given to me are to change the graphics processor associated with a recent application, which does not work, or to browse for an application and associate a graphics processor to it, which also does not work. My version of Catalyst control centre is 12.8, the most recent, as are my drivers.

Hi Shanthosh,

Thank you for replying to the message. Updating the BIOS would not affect the warranty. Updating the BIOS to the latest version can fix the issue. You updating the BIOS and reply to this message if you experience the issue again.
