Fagetti, thats some quality info man. Ty for your effort! I am already reading posts around here. This site is a gold mine for info diggers.
However, from what i think i understand, it is doable on both laptops and desktop, although, one can get more heat issues by overclocking a lap, because of the space you get by using a desktop PC case. Meaning you can put more cooling in desktop case.
Hi Robert! Ty for your input!
Yea, i tried forcing, it simply says that Std. VGA G. Adapter drivers are up to date.
Pick tier1 psu, bad psu causes so many symptoms and problems. Also it can kill other components. Buy it new or used for a less than a year or two if you know seller is surely good. Rest of the stuff can be more used
That doesn't sound at all like manually forcing a driver install. That instead sounds like you selected "update drivers" which is the automatic way.
There is nothing wrong with your hardware. It is supposed to stay shut off to save power until the Intel driver specifically hands things off to the ATI when more performance is needed. Unfortunately, without a manufacturer's utility or BIOS setting to force the ATI adapter to be primary, it's really tricky to install drivers for it because it's powered off.
Compunding the problem is Windows 7's requirement for all active adapters to use the same driver (both XP and Win10 allow you to have adapters from multiple manufacturers operating simultaneously) so the Intel has to disable itself for the ATI to work.
