    FGLRX doesn't recognize 7750M on HP Envy 15

    I've just bought a new HP Envy 15t-3200 (ivy) and am trying to get fglrx running on it, but no ati tools seem willing to recognize that it's a supported device. It's supposedly running a 7750M chip (along with an intel muxless I assume ...)
    Code:
    $ amdconfig --initial
    amdconfig: No supported drivers detected
    It's got a weird ID string in lspci:
    Code:
    $ lspci -nn | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Ivy Bridge Graphics Controller [8086:0166] (rev 09)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device [1002:682f]
    I've tried the 12.4 drivers (both through Ubuntu and dl'd from ATI) as well as the 12.6 beta drivers and get the same results everywhere. FOSS drivers work ok. I tried creating a simple xorg.conf file

    Can anyone tell me how to find a list of PCI IDs supported by a given ATI driver? Does it identify by PCI ID? Anyone else have this model working with proprietary driver?

    Hi, guys. I just ordered mine Envy. I have a couple of questions. According to guys from noteboockreview.com they have a lot of troubles with it like
    1 - Slight outward protrusion of metal from one usb port on the left. I have pushed this in with a pencil eraser, and it is fine now
    2 - Below keyboard/around top of keyboard (by speaker holes) the metal was bent slightly upwards. A few firm pushes down straightened this out just fine.
    3 - Bottom of screen (By HP logo) the plexiglass seems to not be fully in place.
    Also some of the laptops have faded blue color of the screen.
    So do you have any of these problems with it?

    Also what's about linux compatibility? Is the non working speakers the only issue?

    As for dynamic graphics switching there is an open issue in bumblebee project.

    Hi, guys. I've just ordered HP Envy 15 a couple of days before. The folks from notebookreview.com mentioned a lot of troubles with it like

    Also there is a problem with faded blue and so on.
    Do you have any problems with it?

    For switchable graphics I hope bumblebee will support it.

    Haha yah I didn't even notice that. I have the same issue. Not a deal breaker for me but I'll let you know if I find a solution..

    envy speakers

    I used the following to get sound working correctly on my new envy 15:

    #edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and add:
    blacklist snd-usb-audio

    Now all audio working, including the volume control nob on the side. This also fixes some responsive issues with gnome. I noticed frequent error messages to the affect "cannot set freq 44100 to ep 0x1" and a quick google search showed the solution. The downside is not being able to use usb-audio, which I don't anyhow.

    the 12-6 non-beta drivers properly recognize this device and gpu switching seems to work. Weeeee! Now if only I could switch without restarting x, and get all the speakers to work ...

    Nonetheless -- AMD takes a lot of crap in this forum, but it's only been a week or so since this machine was released, we've already got driver support, and the HDMI out works which is more than I can say for any optimus laptop. I can see why I'd pick a nvidia chip for a desktop, but for a laptop the pickings are slim and AMD's the only fully functional option.

    I tried the install-fglrx-debian.sh from kanotix.com and it installed without error. amdconfig still reports no supported adapter, so it also wrote a barebones xorg file and it does appear that it was using the fglrx driver after that, however there was some crazy visual lag when dragging windows, and I still can't configure anything, especially power xpress, which was the point for me

    Interestingly I just got this email from HP about my order:

    Thank you for your purchase of an HP Configure-to-Order notebook computer. It had been discovered that during a recent product offering transition the graphics card which had been included in your configuration had accidently not been transitioned within our configurator to its successor, under the model series you had selected. This older graphics card option has also become no longer available for use in production within this transition.

    As a result, we had provided your build with the 1GB Radeon(TM) HD 77500M GDDR5 Graphics [HDMI, VGA] graphics card which is the successor to the 1GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7690M that was being offered with this model series.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you again for selecting HP as your product of choice.

    I guess I'll cross my fingers and see if AMD releases a supporting driver. I have 30 days to return the bitch

I wrote several times that this is very stupid and should not be done, but amd changes nothing about it. Basically the same pci ids which are in the header file should be ok for the tools. And the whole signature/control check should be completely removed. I wrote a binary hack to disable it, but i still dislike it.
    Got it thanks! I was almost there from reading other posts but hadn't quite put it altogether. Is your binary hack available in a way I could test?

    Thanks again!
