    Firepro W7100 and Intel HD

    atmidn

      Hello:

       

      I would like to get some help to get the Firepro W7100 graphics card working in my computer. It is a Dell Precision box with i7 cpu.

      It is a workstation and I want the graphics card to work on full performance at all times and have no need for power saving.

      There is on-board Intel HD graphics (HD530 I think) on the MB with a hdmi port, but I am connecting to the Firepro.

      The main problem right now is that I am not able to set the full resolution on the monitor which is 2560X1600. I could see it in options but cannot set it.

      It seems to me that Intel and AMD drivers are not working well together. I don't really have any need for the Intel driver or the on-board graphics.

       

      What can I do to use only the AMD driver?

      I have tried disabling the Intel adapter under Device Manager, but no success.

      Do I need to uninstall the Intel driver and how? I have tried once, but it did not want to go away easily and I had to reinstall it.

      I have Auto, Intel and AMD options under video in the Bios. I tried choosing AMD there and no success.

       

      What software do I use to control the Firepro card? Firepro Control Center or Catalyst?

      Can I and should I try setting the switchable graphics in the control center?

       

      Thank you.
