    Yeah I am too. I got catalyst and a windows 7 intel hd graphic driver to install on my first gen envy 14, but I disabled the intel driver to force my radeon 5650. I just can't switch graphics. Otherwise, its prefect!

    Hey there. I'm having problems trying to get display drivers to work properly recently on my Envy 14 (I think it's a 1050ea).

    On start up this week I got a new error message saying mom.exe, which I think is the Catalyst Control Centre (CCC) program, couldn't start ... (0xc000007b). I googled it and I think a 0xc000007b error is something to do with x64 and x86 compatibility... (mom.exe file location on my computer is C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static). Something to do with it being a 32bit program but it has a lot of 64bit dependent dll/exe's(?). I was looking at this post:

    0xc000007b Error Solution « Madhat Alsoos

    ...and I got as far as the solution section, but didn't quite understand it. In their example, they are running a 32bit exe and they found a few x64 dll dependency, whereas I get hundreds from mom.exe. Not sure what to do. Should there be a x64 version of mom.exe? Something like that? Any help?

    So as a consequence of this, my graphics aren't working properly; I think it's stuck on Intel HD graphics, and running poorly at that. Configure Switchable Graphics/Graphics Properties both don't work... just does nothing.

    I tried system restore back to a point last week, but the same error comes up.

    I tried stripping all the graphics drivers back and starting again. I uninstalled both Intel HD and Radeon 5650 in Device Manager, did uninstall of all ATI software, cleared using CCleaner and Driver Fusion to get rid of it all. Restarted in safe mode, then reinstalled stock AMD HD graphics drivers (sp50656), AMD and Intel graphics drivers (sp48434), then 11-2_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc_ocl. ... same problems. I'm still stuck on integrated graphics.

    After that, I've tried reinstalling the chipset drivers along with the graphics drivers again. Same thing.

    Any thoughts?

    mom.exe? wth never seen that, u sure its not a virus?

    IronMan if you read this, please can you provide link for 12.8? I cant seem to find a link for it, and the other ones I see on the internetz seem to be modded and crash my laptop!

    also for anyone trying to make switchable graphics work in w8

    Install w8 (must be a fresh install)
    Download AMD High Definition Graphics from HP website for your laptop (Mine is 1110nr Envy 14).
    Install those (name is like sp5056).
    Download 11.10 from Ironmans first post, and install, thast how far ive gotten and switchable graphics work ok.

    I got an error message of OpenCL not working properly, thats why I want 12.8 but I cant seem to find a version that doesnt crash my laptop. IRONMAN PLEASE HELP!

    If 12.8 does not work on W8, has anyone tried installing an older version on Win8? Or are we stuck with 8.9 on W8 for now?
