I have a Lenovo Y550 laptop with a T4400 2.2 percent
3gb ram, geforce gt240m.
3 months ago, I changed the hard drive under warranty, set the win7 ultimate, and since then it started to slow me down more and more. it got to the point that the cooler is noisy almost non-stop even when starting ordinary office applications (Word Excel, Skype, IE, Baht). when launching World of warcraft (the only game that hangs on the laptop), with heavy loading it generally starts a slide show. opened, cleaned the fan and the output from it. nothing really helped. I attach the CPUID Hardware Monitor program file in the attachment. This is the launch of the laptop, 15 minutes of surfing on the Internet, and the launch of the game for 20-30 minutes.
I ask for advice on what to do.
The driver in order for Switchable Graphics to work with new firewood could not be found.
Shaman with nvidia 267 and 295mi drivers, selected everything for my card, compared, there are not many changes there, tried to change the parameters, could not find the corresponding parameters for what I need.
I ask for help, my dances with a tambourine over the driver did not lead anywhere.
This is some direct punishment, please do not leave a post unanswered, at least say that you do not know how to help.
In the power supply (circuit), HybridSLI control still appears, there is only to enable an integrated or several GPUs (by default, several, manipulations did not help).
Another question, which dll is responsible for Hybrid Power?
Well, it seems that I figured out the problem. NVidia stopped supporting Hybrid Power with Intel chipsets and to solve this problem there is a switch to bios on a discrete card, but I don’t have it, and the new bios from lenovo will not appear explicitly.
Now the question is how can I modify the 295.73 driver for my system?
Last working day 267.76. Maybe it makes sense to replace the dll responsible for switching or changing the ini file.
Tell me please.
“NVidia no longer supports Hybrid Power with Intel chipsets” it doesn’t affect how I found out, because 267 doesn’t support either, but it works, what could be the problem, please help.
So hello everyone who reads this now, I have a problem that I can’t solve, so as not to write a lot about how I tried to figure it out myself, I will write just what my beech is and what happened to me. 🙂
I bought a laptop not long ago Lenovo IdeaPad Y550P. ( Photo http://www.uti-note.ru/img/catalogue/70922009/0001.jpg )
Frequency 2.27 GHz
RAM 4000 Mb
HDD 500 GB
LAN card Broadcom NetLink BCM57780 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet
I don’t know if this data is useful or not, but it’s better to let it be later than necessary, and now here’s my situation.
When I bought a laptop, it had the Win 7 operating system and all the drivers were already installed, Buk worked completely, then I connected the Internet to it via a local network, that is, there were no problems with this either, I just went to the Control Center networks and sharing then Manage network connections
and there were icons for connecting a Bluetooth Wi-Fi network and a LAN connection, at first everything was fine the network connected without problems, but then it started. 🙁
Now stands Operating system: Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
Who can help solve this problem, because I just can’t imagine what to do. The goal is only one to connect the LAN to my laptop. 🙂
I hope I didn’t overwhelm you with the details. And I may not answer the topic for a day or two I must say right away that this does not mean that I left and quit the topic, it’s just such a job, as soon as I come to read it and write an answer to everyone who tries to help me, thank you all in advance. : 🙂
