Some days ago, i've bought a brandnew HP Pavilion dv7 6101eg. It runs wonderful.
But it has some probs with minecraft: It gives me the Bad video card drivers error, when i try to launch it. And yes, my drivers are updated.
Built in are two cards: a ATI Radeon HD 6770 and a Intel (R) HD Graphics. The intel is used for lower graphics, the ATI for better ones such as 3D-Games.
It looks like the automatic change between the two cards doesn't work correctly with Java, although i've changed the usage for Java from 'Low' to 'High'.
That means that my Laptop should use the better graphics card for anyting that has to do with Java. But, for some reason, it doesn't work.
All the drivers are installed correctly and are up to date.
I haven't found anything in the BIOS, and a 2 hour Google search didn't help me... Any other suggestions?
Googled the name of that laptop, first link, and there you have it...
For graphics switching to work at its best, the driver should be kept up-to-date. Unfortunately the dv7-6101eg did not reliably recognise every game we played, so at times we had to manually intervene and select the appropriate graphics card in the Catalyst Control Center.
Right click on your desktop, go to the catalyst center, select java and set it to use the dedicated gpu. It isn't that hard if you bother to search a little bit more...
Hm I Want To Make A Endless age like minecraft But I Want it to be diffrent I'm thinking And I know It's gonna Have Something from like A diffrent game But Kinda Has Like Other Stuff Completely Diffrent I Got To think.
Just to say: I've changed the graphics card for ALL the items in the java folder. Also for javaw.exe and javasw.exe
And i couldn't find a way to disable the intel card, so i don't search further for one.
Put it on the good GPU manually? I have a dv7 too (2010 model) and that's what I do.
