Okay this is too all those who can help me plz, here i go. I have a Samsung Chronos 7 laptop 15.6 in scrren with Intel i7 and switchble graphics: 1. Intel Hd Grpahics 3000 2. AMD Radeon 6490. I wanted to play a game that used OpenGL3.1 but relaized that the only way to do that was to update my drivers becuase neither of my drivers' current build had OpenGL 3.1 support. When i try to go to the AMD website and update AMD driver it says i have Intel and my computer is not supported. Then when i go to this Intel websit it says i have the AMD driver and my coputer is not supported. Some people told me to go to Samsung website
I TRIED! they didnt have the updates there. So now im unhappy that i have possibly wasted 40 bucks ona game that wont even run and wasting my life trying to update my computer to support newer OpenGL applications
If you know how i can update my drivers to get OpenGL 3.1 support or know an external installation to update my OpenGL on my 2 drivers PLZ PLZ PLZ reply!
I hope i can fix this big problem
It sounds like you're using the detection routines on the sites, but that's not needed since you know what video you have. Just download specific drivers directly.
There are reasonably new updates here (AMD Feb 20, Intel Mar 22). You're saying that you already have these and need something newer? These should have the same OpenGL support as anything you'd find at Intel or AMD.
If you install generic Intel drivers you will lose the switchable graphics capability of your computer.
Unless Intel/AMD get their s...tuff together, and release generic drivers that support switchable graphics systems, your only options are:
1-Install generic Intel drivers and lose access to the switchable graphics system (no AMD card for you).
2-Get the driver from the computer maker. (Usually, an old version)
3-Try unofficial drivers (http://leshcatlabs.org/)
By the way, unless your computer supports the so-called 'Fixed Mode' of the Switchable Graphics, all OpenGL processing will be done by the Intel GPU, and therefore, depending on the game you want to play, will be slow as hell.
Well the thing is that i cant even install the intel updates even if i dont care about losing AMD card....... when i try to install the Intel update for my specific prossecor intergrated graphics..... it just says that i dont have it..... WHICH I DO!
I really confused on how this could possibly happen...
