Changing the GPU running on my HP All-in-One from installed gpu to integrated one

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys!

 

Hope you can help me with something. I currently have an HP Envy 23-1080a. It has an AMD A8 5500 APU + a GT 520M. I checked what kind of graphics card the APU has, and it is a Radeon HD 7560D. I compared it vs the 520M and it looks like it performs better. I would like to try if I can use the Radeon one instead and see if I can get better performance in games. Is there a tool that I can use for this? Let me know your ideas, thanks a lot!

There may be an option in the BIOS to enable/disable discrete GPUs. HP product page also says the integrated graphics is unavailable when a stand alone card is configured, so HP may block it from being used. You'll have to poke around and see.


Be sure to QUOTE or TAG me in your reply so I see it!

Also, there is an option in Windows to select/choose what graphics adapter/s you would like to use and which one/s you don't want to use. Click within the Windows Start Menu Search Box and type "Device Manager" followed by Enter. Once the Device Manager opens, click on "Display Adapters" and then right click the GPU that you don't want to use and then select "Disable".


Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

The Radeon GPU is not showing up on the display adapters. Looks like they disabled it.

Maybe I should try disconnecting the GPU then?

If there is not BIOS option to disable the discrete one they you could certainly try.
