Ubuntu 10.10 issue with ATi 5650 Driver

Discussion created by TweFoju on Dec 25, 2010

Hello

I have a problem with my ATi 5650 driver on uBuntu 10.10

 

so i own a HP Pavilion DV6Z Laptop with AMD Phenom II X4 N930 also ATi 5650

i went and install the latest Catalyst HD5xxx series Driver for Linux 64bit

but the Catalyst still reads the HD 4200 ( which is the Onboard )

 

how do i make the Catalyst reads my 5650 instead of 4200?

 

the Problem with HP ( and some other laptops ) is that, they Locked the BIOS

 

so i cannot turn off the Onboard GPU

 

i really really need help on this, because having the 5650 sitting Idle is such a waste, and HD Movies are a pain to watch!

 

i hope i post in the right forum section

 

thanks alot, have a Merry Christmas to you all!
