    i could just SCREAM!!


    well, thank you so much to the both of you.

    sadly i have not seen any updates on the Toshiba website.

    what i gather is that i will probably never ever be able to use Photoshop the way i need to because AMD and/or Toshiba will more than likely not fix the driver problems?

    just my luck.

    ya, i think i can send this computer back for an other two weeks. 30 day money back thing. i bought it from QVC ~ which btw was a total nightmare. they canceled my order 3 times and then i went to set the Supervisor Password and it froze up and then the Toshiba tech guy told me to reset the bios which wiped my puter of everything and so i had to send it back to qvc. what should have been an exciting experience has become a total nightmare.

    i really appreciate your help and thoughts. i think i am gonna return the puter ... less someone thinks if i took off Win8 and installed Win7 that it would help. ??

    Again I will say get your money back and get a Gforce graphics unit since your on the fence on this and you really don't understand the ins and outs of drivers.

    Yes you could format the HD and install W7, however since its still a "Radeon" based graphics you still will only have the last driver that Toshiba made for it, and having experienced HP, these manufactures ONLY make a new "updated" driver ONCE, or like when they went from W7 to W8, nothing else follows, and AMD will NOT support these cards, only a more expensive laptop with a true AMD Radeon card like a 7970, usually a gaming laptop, will be upgradeable, not some run of the mill "manufacturer machine. So in time even with a new hardware laptop with W7 you will still end up with an old driver at some point.

    Anyway its your call and your decision, we just gave you the information. btw if you still have your old laptop, why not just use that for a bit longer if your wanting to go back to W7?

    good luck

    BTW Kara if your determined to buy Toshiba, you might save quite a bit on one here after you get your money back from QVC at least it won't make you feel so bad lol.

    actually, i am not determined to buy a Toshiba. i am, however, determined to buy a computer that will allow me to use the "bells & whistles" of the Adobe Creative Cloud ... such as the 3D tools in Photoshop or even outside of 3D the Filters and such w/out needing to set the GPU in Ps to Draw in Basic Mode.

    i donated my old laptop and so now i just have this pretty worthless Toshiba with poor support.

    yes, it is true that i don't understand the ins and outs of Drivers or OS's or much of anything outside of the Creative Cloud Apps.

    w/that said ... oh do i know when i am getting a "true graphics card" ?? you're saying if i buy one through say QVC that i will not get a true card? that i should save my pennies until i can buy a laptop directly through say Dell, or Acer or whatever ~ ??

    if that's the case then i guess i will go ahead and send this Toshiba back and order the Dell w/the Nvidia GF GT card. & then start saving for a factory direct machine.

    thanks for doing your best to help me understand. suppose i'll go find an article about drivers.

    take care,
    kara

    Windows 8 updates should deliver the graphic drivers if any are available for release.

    Try to relax and take a breath, you don't need some super deluxe gaming machine, there are many off the shelf laptops that will do the job as is.

    just make sure its at least 6 or better g of ram, and a decent I5 or I7 CPU. than look for a Gforce Video card, most likely a 630 or 650 or 655, all will do what you need.

    Yes M stands for mobile.

    The only reason I have this HP with a Radeon 7690M XT is because I got it cheap off an auction site, the rest of the hardware is top notch, but since video cards are part of a laptop motherboard, your stuck with it, (there are some upper MB that will allow a change but its not easy and not usually some off the shelf model) Its used mainly as a replacement for an old XP desktop, and since I know what I have and how to deal with it, its operational as its used for me. HP did at least come out with one driver update for W8, which is the only reason I kept it. I also know that manufactures like HP ONLY re do a driver once in a blue moon. That said, NO other purchase from this point on will ever have another AMD radeon product that I spend money on again.

    There's nothing much else that I can say on this matter, you either get your money back while you still can or you deal with it as is. It could also just be the program your using, it may not be "comparable" with W8. You could look for an update to that program you seem to need, or try installing it using the W7 compatibility setting and see if that helps, you never know it might solve your problem. Also re check for any updated "manufacturer" video driver for your model unit. (btw) you could also try a W7 video driver for your unit from the manufacturer installed in W7 compatibility mode.

    I can't think of anything else to tell you at this point, if no driver is available or none work, I'd get rid of the thing ASAP

    good luck
