    Windows 8 RTM x64 HP Pavillion dv6 radeon gpu not work

    Hello guys, please can somebody help me? My laptop is HP Pavilion dv6 which using Intel I5 2.40GHZ processsor, 6GB ram and two gpu i think, one is intel hd 3000, and one is radeon 6700m. At windows 7 i was running game like mafia 2 on max details, no lag.. (without physx) I think that was becouse it switched to radeon GPU. But when i installed W8 its laggy on low. I think its becouse it starts on intel HD. Guys pls help me how i can switch it ? Thanks..... Otherwise i will need to go back to W7 if thats not work on W8.

    Edit i found some Leshcatdrivers it works profit, but problem is so my brightness not working (i cant change it)

    Hello Riwerry, it seems you aren't the only one who has the brightness bug on a laptop. What you can try is update your Intel Chipset through the Intel website and see if it fixes your issue as this was the fix for some people that had the brightness bug.
    Here is the link:
    Intel® Driver Update Utility

    If the Intel Detection Utility tells you that your computer manufacturer has made a custom driver for the Intel Chipset then go to the HP website and find the specific dv6 model of your laptop and see if there is a driver update there.
    Hope your issue gets resolved!
