    Yes use the leshcat drivers. With the 15.7 v1.2 the gpu is always on ulps set to 0 in regedit keeps the gpu always on. The only advantage I see to this is that windows starts up faster and also wakes up properly. If you set it to 1 its turns the gpu off but start up time is really slow and same goes for wake from sleep. What I've done instead of using the 15.7 v1.2 I'm using Catalyst 14.4 WHQL UnifL v2.4 when installing make sure you install the dynamic version of the driver with this driver everything works fine the gpu stays off avg temps of 45c and start up time is much faster, but also remember to turn of automatic windows driver updating.

    What Notebook do you have?
    I have a Hp 6150sl with 6770m & HD3000 and I am wasting a many days of my life trying to get a stable PC.
    Can you do the manual switch between the two GPUs?
    How did you install the 14.4 2.4? Did you have Fixed or Automatic setup i BIOS while installing?

    If you want a stable PC, go for dynamic mode and the latest drivers. But if you want Fixed mode, you have to use Windows 7 with 14.4 v2.2 and UBR for brightness controls and also a registry fix for sleep/wake issue. I have set to fixed mode in BIOS. BTW I have dual boot Win 7 and 10. Win 7 fixed and Win 10 dynamic.

    Hi my Friends... This it's my experience

    Updating http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...nvy-17-2xxx-intel.556469/page-85#post-9749109 for Windows 10 installation.

    My computer it's dv6 6b04ss with: 1TB toshiba(i don't have SSD :tears: for replace my DVD unit for a caddy, and i don't found caddy? compatible), 1 module 8GB RAM(i think to buy other), a screen upgrade to 1980x1024 (my 1333x768 was broken...), AMD 6770M 1Gb, Intel HD 3000, etc.

    A. I have Bios Mod(MDL), then i install Windows 7x64 SP1 Pro (clean in a new hard disk) without internet. Install licence and key. For validation, i install driver of Realtek(7.092) for Windows 7.

    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...d=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false.

    I then validate in Microsoft web page. I don't install others drivers.

    2. I install Windows 10 with Mediatool USB installer. I connect to Internet, but i don´t install updates previews while install

    3. Finish, i search windows updates, and restart. Finally, my computer it's great Windows 10, but Windows 10 not found driver for:

    A. HP Wireless Button Driver: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_123643_1 or directly: http://h30639.www3.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63501-64000/sp63752.exe (i don't testing ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp64001-64500/sp64043.html because other it's for Windows 10 and dv6).

    UPGRADE 23-09-2015: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/popular-hp-notebook-software.519991/page-32#post-10088315
    --------------------
    Finish, all OK but, i continue:

    B. Intel chipset device software: i don't found new version for Windows 10. Windows 10 install for default.

    C. Intel Management Engine Interface: i don't found version for windows 10 (Windows 10 install for default)

    D. For my Broadcom wifi: (Broadcom 4313 802.11 b/g/n) with PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_145C103C, windows 10 install 6.30.223.256. Great.

    E. For Graphics Intel and AMD: Windows 10 install 9.17.10.4229 (intel), and AMD 15.200.1062.1004. It's better what AMD 15.7.1 (AMD Catalyst™ Display Driver version 15.20.1062.1002), but i don't have AMD gaming evolved (not it's necesary, but it's in: http://www.amd.com/en-us/markets/game/raptr). Hydravision not exist more. Finally, I install and update to AMD 15.7.1... NOTE: I used three monitors in Windows 8.1, but i don't remember if mode fixed or dynamic. Windows 10 in dynamic mode don't work for me with three. I don't have more testing for today: http://irisclasson.com/2012/06/16/r...s-x53-x53sk-sx028v-for-two-external-monitors/. UPDATE: I test Dynamic and Fixed mode and it's equal, always switcheable graphics. Impossible AMD 6770 in exclusive (with these drivers and today configuration). Because HD3000 it's always working, don't work three monitors, but it's posible detect in Display in Control Panel. It's possible work with two external monitors, but impossible with three today. :eek:

    UPGRADE 23-09-2015: I change register with EnableULPS=0. View http://leshcatlabs.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11&start=180#p13536
