    Did you already try to install it manually via device manager?

    Yes, it's a profile to standardize the color space on different devices. This one is for 3820's screen :D Just search for color profile in the start menu search.

    You need it to be able to switch between the AMD and Intel card.

    Thanks for the suggestion dude. I checked in my bios when I first got the laptop and it said it was already version 1.13, so that can't be it.

    And yeah, that's what I heard about the G1S originally, but I figured if someone had managed to replace an 8600m GT on a different motherboard, then it might be possible elsewhere. Nevermind that story of fail and misery.

    We all have our tales of torture at the hands of NVIDIA's 8600M GT.:( You are better off putting all of that behind you.:D

    Hey, can anyone recommend a good 250 or 256GB SSD? Thats not too expensive? I'm fulling up my 120GB pretty quick, since some steam games are 15GB..GTA IV etc.

    Are the Samsung 256GB SSD's any good?

    Oh got my ZeroShock III protective case from Japan today by the way. Its a perfect fit and I'm 100% happy with it. Looks great and protects the unit well. I even feel like testing with a drop test. But I won't heh ;)

    You can get them from here: Amazon.com: Black ZEROSHOCK III 13.3" Laptop Notebook Sleeve:…

    Or my seller here: 12.1"-13.3" Laptop case Black/Zeroshock III ZSB-IB015BK - eBay (item 310223601120 end time Jun-11-10 10:26:03 PDT)

    Hi all,

    after doing the reinstalling of catalyst drivers, my WEI score dropped to 4.5 and i am unable to switch to discrete graphics with the error message "Switching the graphics processors cannot be performed at this time due to the current display configuration"

    what is the problem here?
    thanks in advance for any advice!
