Hello, I have an HP Pavillion dv6 Notebook PC specs:

8g Ram
Intel® Core™ i-5 2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50 GHz
64 bit Windows 7
Intel® HD Graphics Family and Radeon™ HD 6770M

My problem is a lot of my games will not function properly because of my graphics card. My system seems to be only using the Intel card instead of the Radeon card. It is very frustrating having the good card there but not usable. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Do you have the model number by chance

If you have two video cards There should be a disable or enable option in the bios but I would need to look at the manual for that setting.
