    I Have 2 Integrated Graphics

    ellocorenat

      A week ago i bought a laptop (Ideapad 320 15-ast) and im having very low perfomance on games that are not very demanding (CS 1.6 Im having lag issues, i have an older computer with integrated Graphics that runs better), also in games like CS:GO presets are high, or Rising Storm 2 (Even in low run like 20 fps), presets are medium, I think the problem is that my laptop don´t recognize my dedicated GPU, i installed the AMD drivers by manual and automatic installer on this page, and the drivers with Iobit Drive Booster 5.3. Also in Task Manager it says that i have 2 integrated graphics card, it dont recogize the Dedicated, i need help, im very dissapointed with this. I tried reinstalling windows, updating drivers, put on BIOS Switcheable Graphics,etc.

          Never use software like Iobit Drive Booster 5.3 to install drivers. Many times they install incompatible drivers for your computer.

           

          It is always best to install Drivers from your Laptop manufacturer Support site. In this case, Lenovo. laptops and netbooks :: 300 series :: 320 15ast Lenovo PC Support

          Found some newer Drivers for your laptop from above link that you might want to update:

          AMD VGA DRIVER -WINDOWS 10 x 64 - 01/16/2018

          LENOVO SYSTEM INTERFACE FOUNDATION - WINDOWS 10 - 03/30/2018

          BIOS - 5PCN20WW - 01/25/2018 (This latest BIOS doesn't really fix anything so you can probably ignore updating it. just added the following:

          2. Add

            1)Add workaround to fix long press power button cause flash BIOS fail when WUFU update;

           

          When you download Drivers for your mobile Laptop, you need to download the APU driver and not the discrete driver. For your Laptop, this is the APU driver you need to download and install: APU .  APU with R5 iGPU.

           

          Try this basic method of uninstalling and reinstalling AMD Drivers.

           

          First download the correct Full AMD driver set from AMD Support for your Laptop: APU

          Make sure your Windows Operating System (10/8.1/8.0/7) is fully updated via Windows Update (including Optionals).

           

          Disconnect the Internet from your computer to prevent it from installing a different GPU Driver than the one you are installing.

           

          Use Windows Control Panel -Uninstall Feature to uninstall all AMD Drivers and software. Then use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) in safe mode to completely eliminate all traces of the old AMD drivers and software related to the GPU.

           

          Delete C:\AMD Folder. This prevents New and Old AMD driver files from installing and corrupting the installation process.

           

          After rebooting from DDU, Reinstall the new AMD Full set of drivers. If it installed correctly, again delete C:\AMD folder to save Hard Disk space and reconnect to the Internet.
