Windows 10 15.7.1 and locked power savings applications

Discussion created by noiano on Aug 7, 2015

Hello,

I own a Hp dv6-6156sl laptop which is equipped with a switchable AMD graphics card, AMD Radeon HD 6490M to be precise. Windows update correctly installed the proper drivers and I have no problem except the fact that all apps run using the intel 3000 graphics cards since they're all locked in power saving mode

My CPU quickly overheats because it's doing all the work and I also have a toy video editor app which cannot run gpu-accelerated. I've also tried to uninstall the windows update driver and install amd provided drivers but there's no change.

 

I really need some help, please

 

Thanks for your time

 

PS: I too had to modify that registry key in order to have decent boot times.
