    In town 30 FPS, 4 play ercop-op around 18 fps windowed or full screen, all low settings and adjustments made to D3perfs to best optimize [tirlinear hardware class changes etc]

    Acer aspire 7750G- 6645

    AMD Radeon 7670M 1.6GB VRAM

    Game is playable, but have of my armor pieces look " blocky"

    After I start D3, on my start up tray i see Intel R HD 3000 card running [ this is after I updatated those drivers as after patch 1.08 was unable to play for some reason, was way to laggy/choppy]

    the update for AMD is the catalyst driver which i tried to install but it just game me " not compatible" or something, I then uninstalled it without realizing It uninstalled ALL AMD drivers. so im not even sure its still active on my lap top....

    How do I know if i still have it on my lap top [my RADEON HD card?}

    ## Windows 7 vista FYI

    Under device manager I have Display adapters -
    one is the INTERL R HD graphics 3000
    other is standard VGA graphics adapter , but it has a exclamation mark by it
    - Driver status which reads"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

    But no AMD RADEON? Am I looking in the right spot

    Also for this laptop I cant set it to use the AMD all the time, its "switchable" or the intel one, when I enter BIOS, but i've read about modded bios's that may allow it, not sure how safe they are though...

    like the IK and some other thigns on mini map/inventory are block while the laqunis are crisp

    Could be just a bug in the AMD chip.
