    Hi VonCrisp,

    Do you noticed any problem with heat under Windows 10?
    I've not yet done temperature readings, but the laptop seems very hot in comparison with my original HP Windows 7.

    i'm gonna go ahead and take the plunge and install win 10. I want to do a fresh install. How do I keep all the custom Hp software like webcam software and such?

    Just completed the upgrade to win 10. I haven't don't a fresh install yet. I have noticed that the fans keep going non stop and it's hella annoying. I tried to adjust the fans with HP coolsense but win 10 said it "blocked that app for my protection." Any ideas how to get Coolsense working or make the fans run on low?

    Haven't had an issues whilst using the 10240 build. Maybe you are creating some kind of situation where the AMD is being taxed more for rendering certain applications?

    Which apps do you have open? Also you cannot compare to Win 7 just like that.

    You might have had fixed switching drivers on Windows 7.
    Windows 10 only works on dynamic switching. If you are comparing dynamic switching drivers from Win 7 with Win 10 then it is another matter.

    Fritz was looking into this with Donovan but he doesn't seem active anymore.

    Latest BIOS is F1D but it isn't public.

    It is automatically enabled with all new AMD drivers. There has been no more fixed switching since Catalyst 14.4.

    My temperature is fine under Windows 10. I am running the WU AMD drivers.

    XAML apps are a bit buggy but that is a problem with the AMD drivers.

    I have found a way to accelerate the XAML apps and give the more stability. Again this is an issue with the driver acceleration. (or lack thereof)

    Will post here once I can confirm that these aren't just placebo findings.

    So that would explain why under win 10 I saw both the AMD CCC and Intel graphics in the system tray at the same time.

    How was you fan noise? Mine was going nuts. And my system was slower then molasses.

    My fan was totally fine.

    Indeed CCC and the Intel CC both appear at the same time because it is using dynamic switching now. Ie your Intel card is your primary display now.

    AMD only gets used if an application needs acceleration.

    Not sure about your fan. Maybe coolsense is messing with it. I would remove it.

    Better yet I would format and clean install Windows 10.

    Windows 7 HP had way too much junk on it.

    The speed is fine. XAML apps are a bit buggy but I put it down to the AMD drivers.

    Thank you VonCrisp. I will do a clean install of win 10 and see what happens. I just did the upgrade the first time b/c it was free.

    I just did the upgrade to Win 10 then I did the clean install of Win 10. Windows is asking me to update my AMD 6850 drivers. Should I let it? or should I download the drivers from AMD?
