Hello everyone,
I'm writing from Italy so excuse me for any grammar error in this topic.

I have installed now Da Vinci Resolve but a message appear when I try to run the prhram saying:

"Unable to Initialize GPU
Please ensure that the system power profile is set to use the discrete GPU for Da Vinci Resolve and that the displays are not connected to the integrated GPU."

So I click on Update Configuration in the Mamry and GPU Section and then I found my AMD Radeon R7 M340 selected and the AMD Radeon R5 Graphics NOT selected.

I don't know what I have to do.

I tryed to find some video on you tube and some news on google but nooe seems to have this problem. I found something on Invidia problems but not on AMD Radeon.

Can please someone help me or have any suggestion about it?


My Compter is a HP
RAM 16GB (15free)
64bit system
Windows 10 Home

I had the same problem with my Radeon R7 370 4GB and the latest AMD driver (Adrenalin 21.3.2.). It was not possible to select /deselect the GPU. With the older driver Adrenalin 21.2.1 (27.20.14533.1000) the problem disappeared on my side.
