So OK, I still have W7, so they are working on your W7? no weird problems?.
hehe, we re both in the same situation, find somebody who have the same conifguration as us, and have installed windows 8. to tell us, if this drivers works or not!!!
I provided you with the HP support links for the "Customized To Order" (CTO) versions of your G6 2200 model pc in an earlier post on page 21 of this thread. I also told you that there were display drivers for your pc the contained both x86 and x64 bit drivers for your model graphics card. The drivers description page states that the driver works with for both x86 and x64.
I'm sorry that you feel I'm being judgmental. Whatever that is suppose to mean.... I did read your post, that is were I picked up your having mentioned that you have an issue with finding drivers for your HP G6-1007sl system. That said, good luck with your search for a solution.
Hi , i downloaded both Leshcat and benchmark's 7900 MOD for my 6770M graphic card , apparently both are working (as in being detected properly working easily) but the real problem comes when im running a game , if i run fifa 13 both the drivers run perfectly for about 5 mins and after that i get huge lag which isnt supposed to come at all .... i tried restarting the game after wards but after restarting the game even at the start i get huge lag ... i checked the FPS rating for fifa 12 and 13 both shud run at ultra settings and i was running them at "Very low" and experienced this lag ..... its on both these 3rd party drivers :-/ .... currently im on Leshcat 12.10 ... any help guys ?
heres my System graph when Fifa 13 is Running .... really Suprising the GPU is relaxed and the game LAGS ...

In the Gurur3D thread that you linked there are references to the 4250 and lack on on-going support from AMD which isn't promising .
I'm finding that I can't find a single package from AMD/ATI which support both Mobility Radeon HD 4xxx and 5xxx and if I try and mix and match drivers to get both devices looking happy the devices work but instead of switching graphics I get both at the same time and 2 displays showing up in windows 'Screen Resolution' control panel with an extended desktop (who knows where the second desktop is showing - I can't see it).
Is there a thread somewhere I've missed on ATI/ATI switchable graphics setups?
"I understand that you are questions regarding drivers for your mobility Radeon 4250+5470 on your HP laptop, specifically in how it relates to your ability to upgrade to Windows 8. If this is incorrect, please let me know as the information provided may change.
Please be advised that AMD offers a reference driver (as-is, limited support) for Mobility Radeon cards because laptop manufacturers will often optimize the laptop by adjusting certain capabilities or specifications of a graphics card to make sure that the entire laptop is running efficiently. Similarily, AMD cannot support changing the Operating System from the one that was distributed with the laptop, as certain hardware components may not be compatible with the new Operating System. As such, our reference drivers may not be compatible with your system. The AMD Mobility Radeon Driver Verification tool (found at AMD Catalyst) helps you determine your notebook’s compatibility with generic AMD Catalyst Mobility drivers. It helps to prevent incorrect installation on incompatible notebooks which may lead to disabled features or functionality. If your system is compatible with our drivers, the installation tool will then install them. If the driver is incompatible, an error will pop up recommending that you contact the laptop manufacturer for drivers.
Specific to your situation, by virtue of you having a 4xxx and 5xxx card in the same system, you're in the undesireable position of having to shut off one of the two cards in Windows 8. As Win8 requires WDDM 1.2 and the 4xxx series of cards all use WDDM 1.1, you can either use the Beta Win8 drivers for your 4250, which will disable your 5470, or the standard Win8 release which will disable your 4250. Personally, I would stick with Windows 7, as there could be some other hardware compatibility issues that might arise, but contacting HP would be a good bet on that one. Either way, for Win8 specifically, you'll be limited to either the 4250 or 5470, you won't be able to use both solely due to the WDDM 1.2 restrictions in Windows and how that affects our drivers."
I hope that this information is of use to anyone else with HP laptops with the M880G chipset and that posting it here means some other poor person doesn't waste the time I have trying to solve it! FWIW I have sent a message to the Managing Director of HP UK & Ireland expressing my displeasure.
