I currently own a vostro 3560 with the terrible Switchable Graphics technology. It has an ATI 7670M and Intel Graphics 4000, verified via Device Admin, and of course, because I bought it that way.
I have installed, reinstalled and uninstalled close to 6 different driver versions for it and sometimes it works ok and sometimes I just cannot be certain.
For instance: why I never find the ATI 7670M listed in the System Tray menu.
I installed Hydravision and a warning message comes up telling me I haven't got the correct drivers installed and it will close.
Also, every time I connect my laptop via HDMI to any other device (my hdmi home theater, for instance) it does it via the Intel HD Graphics 4000 card. Is this supposed to be?
I would LOVE to make sure I am using the video card I payed extra for, and so far, the only way I suspect I am using it is when I fire up GPU-Z and I can select it from the drop down.
But even when running the High Performance energy profile, the DXDiag tool also shows the Intel HD Graphics 4000.
I know AMD drivers are quite messy, so are there better drivers than the latest? Is there a fail proof way to uninstall and reinstall the drivers correctly?
I am running Windows 7 Premium and this driver version: 2012.0305.348.6610, downloaded from Dell.
I ask my question here cause the documentation at Dell is just non-existent.
