I have recently bought a 6165. Since I prefer to work on a bigger screen I always try and connect to a monitor if I have the option. But the issue I see while connecting to the monitor(FULL HD) is that the picture does not seem crisp at all. It's a bit hazy(not so much that one can't work on it, but enough to notice it). Can u guys suggest me something that might be able to solve my problem.

I have another query... I understand after reading some of the posts in this thread that 1 has to update drivers for bios and graphics. Now there are quite a few drivers present on the hp support site. Do I have to install all the updates or only the most recent ones.
Another question where do I install the latest ATI CCC from....could you also tell me the latest version which would be supported on my laptop.

If you are using an external FHD monitor, and doing a duplicate of the screen, it might be outputting 1366x768 to the external monitor. Make sure the resolution for the 2nd screen is set to 1080p. If it is not possible in the Duplicate mode, use Extend, or Projector Only option, and then set the resolution properly on the external monitor.

For the drivers and BIOS update, use the search option. Links to the BIOS update and the CCC have been provided many times.

Update graphics drivers also, and change to switchable graphics in bios. Then run the game in high performance mode.

hi guys,
i have a 6121tx and i am new to this forum.i went through some of the posts and they were really helpful.
this is not a gaming forum but as some of the members have posted their problems, i would like to share my problem and hope for a solution..

i have played most of the recent games on this lappy and its performance was really good but somedays back i installed "StarWars the force unleashed 2" and as soon as i launch the game windows gives the message"SWTFU2.exe has stopped working".

i have googled for a solution for hours and tried some and nothing works..
so i think it is laptop specific problem..

i have 11.12 and f.1a and running in high performance mode..

has anyone tried this game on 6121 or other models???
if so how did u make it work????

please help guys , i really want to play this game.....

update graphics to what ?i mean which versions please tell me which one u r using and please give me the link .thanks in advance

ATI Catalystâ„¢ Mobility Display Driver

It is 11.12 install it, go into switchable mode from bios. Then you will get switching option on right-clicking where you can use either high-performance gpu (amd) or power-saving gpu (intel).

@sarthak

thanks man, i hadn't tried on intel gpu . it works on intel gpu but i get like 10-15fps so basically not playable. Atleast now its confirmed that the problem is with amd gpu. BUT if you figure out how to make it work on AMD please let me know...I really like this game...

ALSO if anybody else could help, its appreciated...
