    I dunno if this applies, but right click on the desktop, or on the CCC tray icon, and it should give an option to "Configure Switchable Graphics," or something similar.

    It does work - contains Catalyst 11.8 + Intel build 2202... courtesy of Acer, hallelujah! :D

    Take a look at the attached picture. The yellow marked option has to been disabled.

    ^^you have to select battery mode in the Intel IGP control panel before that option shows up. It's Intel's cheesy way of saving power by changing backlight+gamma based on what the image on the screen looks like. It's supposed to look natural, but... lol.

    No problem. The driver between the 3820/4820/5820 are mostly exchangeable.

    It doesn't for me. Dunno if you've been following my last couple posts, but everything installs, then it cannot configure the SP1, and giving me an Error code. I posted the error code before. One of the solutions was formatting. Another was using Driver Sweeper to restore the missing files, which I couldn't restore for some reason. Now that I've already formatted, I need the proper and stable Alps touchpad driver, aside from the one on Acer's site.

    I was following the discussion roughly.

    This was the solution, which was working in my case.

    How did you find out that the AMD driver is from Catalyst 11.7? I just installed it and DirectX (dxdiag.exe) tells me my graphic driver is 8.840.7.4000 (corresponds correctly to the filename), and a Google search seems to show that Catalyst 11.4 corresponds to graphic driver versions starting with 8.840.

    Also the Direct3D Version also corresponds exactly to the same numbers found in Catalyst 11.4 drivers (7.14.10.0825).

    +1 for 11.4.
    And it ever can't be newer than 11.6 because of date in .inf file:
    DriverVer=06/13/2011, 8.840.7.4000
