HP Pavilion 15/G6 - powered by AMD Trinity/Kabini/Richland

re: HP G6 2005AX/2010AX/2201AX - powered by Trinity

I upgraded to Windows 8 and installed the graphic card drivers from the HP website for windows 8. But now I am unable to open the AMD Catalyst Control Center. I right click on the desktop, click on graphic properties but nothing happens. :(

Please suggest what I should do? I couldnt find any solution over the net.

here is the link again AMD Catalyst

download Catalyst Software Suite with .NET 4 Support...

had tried those only in the first place but got an error saying windows cannot find cli.exe so i downloaded from the hp website.

But now my problem is solved. I uninstalled the drivers, then booted in safe mode and used Driver Fusion to remove all the AMD entries and files, and then installed the drivers again. Now i have the catalyst control center back :)

Will update to the drivers you mentioned once I am done with other software installations.

^ Liike mine has a toshiba one, is there any chance that I can sell this one buy a faster one and put in my laptop. I mean is this possible, I have never opened a laptop in my life. Is this going to be tough?

Yes you can buy another one and replace it with current HDD. Its very easy, just open the screws , slide and replace. But what will you do with your old HDD ?

Any other problems that you are facing? You have bluetooth driver? Are they compatible?
 
re: HP G6 2005AX/2010AX/2201AX - powered by Trinity

Didnt install any bluetooth drivers seperately. Default Windows 8 bluetooth drivers are working fine. Even the display driver problem that I had above was by chance. I am sure its not gonna happen to all who upgrade.

i'll suggest either wait for 1TB drives or for Hybrid HDD (HDD + SSD cache) to get affordable. That way you are upgrading the size and get speed too.

Can't we simply put it in a case and use it as an external drive :)

i was going to recommend the same thing. A USB casing will cost 400-600 and can turn the internal HDD into a external one instead of finding a buyer.

I have heard about this case for the first time. Never heard of it before.

Just OK.

You may not find much buyers for 2nd hand laptop HDDs.

I doubt if any casing for laptop HDD comes except branded docks.

Get Seagate momentus XT, costly but worth it (for single HDD solution). This is actually a hybrid HDD (HDD+SSD) which Sam was saying of, thus the better performance.

Seagate 2nd Generation Momentus XT (750GB) Hybrid HDD Review. But the price is still really high and as Apple has made the next move by offering 128GB of cache (massive amount compared to 4/8GB in Seagate) in their already iMac so WD & Seagate should upgrade their Hybrid HDD by offering 2-3 times the cache at the same time over the next year thanks to falling price of NAND. so by next year with 5mm HDD becoming the norm, 7mm HDD with a single 1TB platter and 16GB NAND for 7-8k will be a nice deal.
