Hello, About my Laptop: MSI Alpha 15 B5EEK GPU - RX 6600M CPU - Ryzen 7 5800H RAM - 40 GB OS - Windows 11
I bought it a year ago with pre installed Windows. It was working fine. Then I wanted to switch to Linux, so erased Windows completely and installed Ubuntu 22.04, but later I came to know that RX 6600M does not support Linux.
So I had to delete Ubuntu and do a fresh install of Windows 11. I did and everything was working fine.
But when I tried to connect to a second monitor, it didn't work. So I checked Device Manager, Task Manager, 3rd Party Softwares, but nothing detected my dedicated GPU. Everything shows that only my iGPU but not the dedicated GPU.
I followed the forum solutions, articles and tried to fix it for the past 5 days. No luck.
I tried, > Installing new and old drivers > Completely remove using DDU and reinstalled (normal and safe mode) > Installing 3rd party drivers > Update Chipset driver > Manually download and update drivers > Driver from MSI site > Driver from AMD site > Updated my firmware > Reinstalled Windows 11 around 10-15 times > Checked with Hidden Devices in Device Manager > Updates Windows 11 to the latest version
No solution worked for me. I am not able to play any game, connect to my second monitor using HDMI. My warranty period ended 2 months ago. Service center guys too didn't know how to fix it.
So I feel like I'm stuck. Can't use linux. Can't use dedicated GPU. Any help would be really appreciated.
