Hope someone had the same problem before. My laptop comes with two video "cards". Intel MHD4500 and ATI Radeon HD3650 (mobility). I can switch between them with the "Lenovo Battery Manager" from the taskbar. All good, but Lenovo provides the driver for this. The problem with that driver is they are a bit old. (Both Intel and ATI). For example I doubt I have any gpu accel in flash, and I experience some problem with dual display setup, which the new ATI driver would solve.

Basically I want to create a new driver (I read a topic where a guy said its possible... baaack then when I was searching for something else). One needs a special ATI driver creation utility or what... sorry I can't recall the name of it.

Thanks in advance.

(Ah yes I forgot: The OS is a Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.)

That's no longer required, unless your laptop is a Toshiba/Sony/Panasonic - but luckily, yours isn't. Grab the HD3640 drivers from here.

Grab the Intel HD4500 drivers from here.

Okay, I always hated ATI: noob.hu/2010/06/12/wtf.jpg ... "Tell me whyyyy...." :) | (It just downloads a ~1.5mb package instead of the ~70mb one, unpacks it into C:\... and this comes up.) –  Shiki Jun 12 '10 at 6:22
    
Wrote the question on Lenovo Community + ThinkPads forums. Hope someone will come up with a solution. Anyway, kudos for you, its already a help. (And any help are still welcome!!!!111) –  Shiki Jun 12 '10 at 6:41
    
@shiki still got the problem ? –  Sathya Jun 13 '10 at 6:50
    
Of course. :( No one answered my question on the other sites. Lenovo got only phone support but I have a feeling they would simply say switch to permanent "Discrete graphics" (ATI) and that's it. However, sometimes I have to use it from battery, and ATI sucks. My battery. :) –  Shiki Jun 13 '10 at 7:00
    
@Shiki Hm, sorry - I don't have a Lenovo or an ATi so can't help you much. Let me see if I can get something more –  Sathya Jun 13 '10 at 9:23
