Hello I have an HP Pavilion  dv6 with the following specs:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM 2.0GHz

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6700M Series

Memory:  8GB RAM

OS: Windows 10 64-bit

So the laptop is starting normally(10 sec due the fact that i have SSD) while i dont have installed the Catalyst and the dedicated video card driver, and afther the installation of the graphics drivers i have the following issues :

  • the laptop is strting slower (1 min+)
  • the os applications freqvently crushes
  • i still cant use the dedicated graphics card in games
  • the laptop Display is always running at the lowest brightness level
  • sometimes the laptop won't turn off
  • sometimes the os starts and it is not showing me the desktop only the background image that i have and i can run only the programs form my taskbar and i cant oppen any folder (i think explore.exe is not working )
  • and AMD gammeing evolved keeps asking me to update my graphic card and it wont upgrade it due an error (while windows updater is saing that all the devices are up to date )

I never hat these problems before i installed windows 10 and i hope you can help me.

My Thanks
