    Graphics card not being used -J1D5GdO5lc9oSiu98nGZp7faIKe01aoTuMuTSfjo2c.jpg

    My laptop has 2 graphics cards. The weak one (AMD Radeon R5) and the stronger one (Radeon R7), which is 2 GBs. Obviously the r7 one should be used when gaming but instead, r5 is used, which only has like 512 MBs. As a result, I can't play any game without getting a maximum of 15fps, even on the lowest settings. I used AMD radeon settings app to set the games on high performance, but r7 is still not being used. In graphics settings on windows 10, when I choose high performance for games, the system labels the r5 as both low and high performance. How can I fix this? Any help would be appreciated.

    graphics card problems

    Hi,

    Your computer makes a noise or beeps from your internal speaker because it failed to detect the graphics card. What we can suggest is for you to try cleaning your graphics card with a pencil eraser. Here are the steps below:

    • Turn your computer off.
    • Pull out your video/graphics card.
    • Rubbed the cold contacts with soft pencil eraser.
    • Connect your video/graphics card back to the computer.
    Kindly note that this is just a temporary fix. If the case still continues, I suggest that you contact your graphics card's manufacturer.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. Graphics card information.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    The error might occur if the Graphic card is cannot update the driver automatically.

    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device manager.
    • Expand Display Driver from the list.
    • Right click on the Graphic driver and select
      update driver software.

    Also, can download the latest version of the graphic card from the manufacturer website.

    Hope the information is helpful. Please revert back with the necessary information and we’ll be glad to assist you.
