So I was recently given an HP Pavilion dv6-6C38TX as a replacement for a broken laptop. 

Thing is, it has an ATI 7690M XT graphics card built in, with 2GB dedicated G-RAM, but whenever I look at display properties, it says Intel HD Graphics Family. Even www.canirunit.com says thats my graphics card is the Intel HD Graphics Family. How can I change the computers settings to set the ATI Card as default?

Oops sorry my bad forgot to reply. Yes that solved it thanks haha. I didn't think to check the HP website because I never go to it because I hate it so much. Thanks for that :D
