    So run:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/rc.local
    and put into the file:
    Code:
    modprobe radeon
    echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch
    into the file above the line that says exit 0
    Click save, and close.


    Sorry my mistake, the second command is actually supposed to be like this:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add this line at the bottom of the file and remember to click save.
    Code:
    blacklist fglrx
    How's those temperatures? Cooling down?


    You really worry you have to make the letters bigger? I can read this text size fine... sorry if I misunderstand..

    This problem is back again. I do the same steps back again and I get this error when I type the command "sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch"

    Error msg :
    cat: /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch: No such file or directory

    Ok, I've never had that problem, but after a bit of googling it appears you need to run:
    Code:
    sudo mount debugfs none /sys/kernel/debug
    Before you can switch it off.


    Here, follow these instructions:

    Please use "gksudo gedit" (no quotes) instead of "sudo gedit". See here why.

    It's kinda weird. The problem occurs when I did a base update. Software updates are fine. It's OK now
