Amilio xi 3650 how to change hybrid graphics mode

Postby Prester » Wed Jul 29, 2009 11:06 am

Hello all,

I don't know how since I didn't change any of the settings myself and i'm quite the tech noob, but all of a sudden I get something in my tool bar showing that i'm now in increased performance for Nvidea hybrid graphics. Not that I really mind, since I do play games on this comp (and my fps like doubled in this mode), but I would like to be able to set it lower when I'm not gaming. I'm running vista btw

Here's the rub, I follow the instructions (go to 'more power options', change power plan settings, change advanced power settings) However here i'm stuck: the instructions tell me to expand the 'GPU settings category', but it is not available anywhere, even if I click on 'change settings that are currently unavailable'.

My user manual instructs to go the quick start button 'hybrid vga' on the multimedia board, but I can't seem to find that either.

I'd like to set it up so I have one power plan with balanced graphics mode for when i'm working/browsing, and an increased graphics performance plan for when i'm gaming but now in each power plan the graphics are set on increased performance.

any help would be much appreciated!

cheers,
Prester

Exactly the same problem here, only i'm stuck in the 'save power' mode...
I have some problems playing games like Crysis, FarCry and COD4 Modern Warfare, even on low settings. thought the problem might be the graphics mode. should be a quick fix but i've tried my best and couldn't change the graphics mode from 'save power' mode to 'high performance' mode.

thanks in advance!

Hey, I just got a 3650 xi as well, and on my laptop theres a 'multimedia board' right over my keyboard. There's several buttons, a button to change the fan mode. some media player controls, and an icon of some guy running which is the second to the right. Pressing that should turn the 9600m GT card on/off. There's also an icon in my system tray which I can press to change the performance mode which seems to work for me. If this all doesnt work maybe you can try installing newer drivers from the fujitsu site.
Hope this helps!

edit:
Thats where my mediaboard is :P
