Amd Radeon 6550M on hp 3315sp

Postby logo_one on Thu Mar 28, 2013 10:13 pm

Hello People,

First, sorry for my bad english and for my questions, i'm newbie on linux.
Recently i installed Linux mint Debian Cinnamon and i'm trying to install drivers for the graphic card Amd Radeon 6550M but without success.
I tried every methods that i found on internet, diferents versions of amt ati drivers on offical pages but again without success.

Note: my computer has Switchable graphics cards, amd and one intel graphics (can't remember the model)

My question is, there a possibility to install some drivers to put work the graphic card correctly?

You will need to disable the AMD card in the machine's BIOS and run off the Intel card. Your machine's manual will have the instructions for the BIOS.

I checked all options on each tab of bios setup but don't have the option to disable AMD card.
