Hello,

I have recently bought a laptop with enthusiasm Lenovo G500 but with AMD bloody Graphic Card.

Intel Core i7(8750m) AMD Radeon

I had problem running software and discovered that my laptop was not using the preferred AMD graphic card but the motherboard which is not as powerful as AMD.

After I was trying to install Crimson updates, in the middle of the installation my laptop froze, and then it turned in blue with white letters and restarted. After that I had difficult time running it was playing me in circles, wanted to be diagnosed and restarted and yet not solved. After that I have fully recovered although using usb with win 10 and it brought me back to the first state, using motherboard.

I've tried some alternatives from other forums that worked for Acer, but it literally would not work for Lenovo because it is different. I tried again and it froze again and I restarted my laptop and decided to politely ask for your help or hint, anything I would really appreciate it.

Thank you !
 
First you need to get it to detect and use the right card.

A. Uninstall, and then reinstall, the latest graphics card driver.
B. Make sure that your AMD graphics card is set as the default graphics card.

Here's the steps on how to set it to default.

1. Open the "Control Center".
2. Select "Manage 3D Settings" under 3D Settings.
3. Click on the "Program Settings" tab and select the program you want to choose a graphics card for from the drop down list.
4. Now select "preferred graphics processor" in the drop down list. (You can see what the automatic option is listed as global setting) If you want to use the dedicated graphics card, select High-performance AMD processor.

Once it is running on the right one, test the system again and see if the problem persists.


For ATI/AMD graphics cards the process varies.

You may need to open graphics then PowerPlay and set plugged in and/or battery to maximize performance.

You can also try going to graphics then 3D and move the slider to performance. Your computer may also have a switchable graphics tab where you can change the settings for individual programs.
