Hi all Basically i did the free upgrade from windows 7 to windows 10 but wanted a fresh install, so once i upgraded i installed windows 10 again and installed a nice fresh OS. I have tried installing the drivers from the dell site and i have also tried the route of letting windows find all the drivers for me. But both ways result in my laptop only running the intel 3000 graphics. If i try the switchable graphics the box appears and i click yes but nothing happens. Both device manager and the Diagnostics on the dell site both show both cards and seem fine. Im totally stumped, had no graphics card issues on windows 7. Tried upload some pics but i didnt have much luck, heres the links (The first pic shows tests as running but i can confirm they all passed) Thanks for the help.

Can confirm that Catalyst Software Suite 15.7.1 is the latest driver for the AMD Radeon HD 6800M. And the Intel HD graphics 3000 latest driver is 15.40.1.64.4256 How do i remove every trace of the old drivers before installing these drivers? Also do i install them in any certain order?

Thanks for your help buddy. If you go into 'Control Panel' then 'Device Manger' then click to open the drop down for 'Sound, video and game controllers'. Find the driver(s) that are for the sound card you are wanting to use only. Uninstall and then reinstall after rebooting. I do not see order of installation as being an issue here, as long as it is only the drivers for that device. The more important steps are the setting that graphics card/GPU to default With setting the AMD graphics card is set as the default graphics card, i dont see the option your mentioning. Heres a pic Sound, video and game controllers only shows my HD audio devices What about in Display Adapters??

Also after i have removed them should i turn off the my wifi to make sure windows doesnt automatically install the drivers when i reboot? Got it to work with the old driver thats on the dell site using my service tag. But i cant stop windows from updating the driver to the new one. After it installed the newer driver the switchable graphics stopped working again.

In the end i switched off switchable graphics and just have the high powered card running. If you do this the newer driver works and the AMD HD card runs im just going to leave it at that for now, ive had enough of installing over and over lol If anyone finds anything please post here But i thank you very much for your help, top marks Jason.
