    thanks, will test soon

    EDIT:
    Thanks, solved my sleeping problem (Dell 3540) - I wish you could tell us what you've changed! (please)

    EDIT 2:
    Problem is only partially solved. Getting out of sleep results in a reset of the laptop. It doesn't happen with the Dell Intel drivers

    yes sure just follow the instruction and it will work with you i made this mod for those switchable graphics menus , and why this happens with you it's AMD they stop supporting mobile drivers and the mobile driver that released is a reference for the Oem to make their own drivers for their products !!

    Okay, I used DDU in safe mode everything went fine, then after installing the drivers I get this message when I try to open CCC.

    AMD Catalyst Control Center cannot be started.
    There are currently no settings that can be configured using AMD Catalyst Control center.

    Can't shut down my laptop anymore with this latest driver... you think your modded version might fix that? I had to revert back to your 14.4 driver :\

    Hi, i registered specifically for this post! :D
    So, HP dv7-6053er intel hd 3000+6770m here.

    BIOS has got no settings for fixed/dynamic modes choice(earlier models don't have it, unless i hack bios....) and by default is fixed.

    Finally managed to make the driver work, but it shows that i got gpu1/gpu2 available(i.e. afterburner) and settings in catalyst are for dynamic mode(same as on your screenshot)! I made the application run in high performance mode(thus ati gpu), and monitored if it does through catalyst(it shows it runs on high performance) - but it doesn't! Watch dogs runs on intel hd3000 instead of ati!(same in afterburner, gpu clocks at 0/0 whenever ati is not working properly)
    Tried different catalysts(from 14.6/14.4/13.12), enabling/disabling ati in device manager, different intel hd graphic drivers - same result!

    Is it possible that you made the driver work in dynamic mode and locked it to it? So we could possibly get dynamic mode driver/catalyst?

    Br

    Edit: tried to run it on intel hd3000(thus "power saving") - and watch dogs doesn't start at all, so i guess so it actually does start on ATI but lags like hell(1-3fps instead of 25-30 on old driver). Pretty sure it's dynamic vs fixed mode issue!
    Edit2: LOL, performance mode was set on battery efficient, made it full performance and fps increased drasticly! But driver works much worse than 14.4, still possibly due to the fixed vs dynamic mode issue!
