Open the BIOS Setup(F10)>System Configuration>Switchable graphics mode
and then Toggle to FIXED MODE , Save and Exit
After reboot Plugin the laptop to Charger and right click to open Switchable graphics config and select High performance GPU and now rerun the WEI assessment then u will be getting 6.9 and with a bit of overclocking can get 7.0 :)

how can we overclock the graphics card ?
i cant move the bar in MSI after burner...:cry: the maximum value is fixed for me. cant change

i also hav dat problem with msi afterburner ..... use SAPPHIRE TRIXX .... instal the lastest version , then in overclocking tab move the core clock from 725 to 825 & memory clock from 800 to 900 (don't touch d voltage section) .....i m using these clocks & now my WEI is 7.0 :))in both d gfx.. u can also set ur gpu fan speed :wink: ... some guys even using core clock at 850 & memory clock at 950 .... bt i didn't (want to b on d safe side)

^^ I had been using Afterburner and speeds of 850/950. It was running stable. After I formatted the computer, didn't try that again, as I don't think overcloking is needed much as of now.

^^ Yes actually that is not required I just did it for experimental purpose and reverted back to stock clock speed as 6770 is just an awesome card

Change the resolution in the game to 1366x768 and then Alt+Enter
Will be trying Dirt 3 tomorrow (maybe) :)

@rider : If you are using a cracked version of the games, you might need to change some file configs etc for full screen. I had the same problem with Mafia 2. I used 1360*768 windowed mode + ShiftWindow to run the game. It ran perfectly at all high settings. Got 40+ fps in Mafia 2 benchmark

hey guys has anyone tried out unofficial modded drivers from leshcat.blogspot.com
through it i can run opengl games through amd graphics card in dynamic switching mode also and this package updates both your intel and amd drivers :mrgreen:
and for dv6 through these drivers you can toggle fixed and dynamic mode of switching in catalyst control centre itself .
so all in all very good but before installing these drivers do wipe out your old amd drivers through driver sweeper

Hi,

Nice to see people getting serious about buying music but I have not asked for such smartass solution...A simple technical one would be much appreciated.

However, don't comment when you don't know, better keep your fingers busy when watching Sheila Ki Jawani :D

hasn't anyone tried out eh 11.11 catalyst drivers yet?

Change the resolution in the game to 1366x768 and then Alt+Enter
Will be trying Dirt 3 tomorrow (maybe) :)

Dirt doesn't go to full screen on the fixed mode ... I used the 11.8 drivers when I played the game[switchable mode]..... ++ hey the game gets pertty boring after a while... try Driver sanfrancisco... it's at an entirely different level :)
