AMD Radeon HD 7650M and switchable graphics

Hello everybody,

I know this is a bit of a recuring topic but I'm out of things to do...

My system:

HP Probook 4740s with Windows 10 64bit

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7650M

CPU: Intel Core i5-2450M CPU 2,5GHz

Chipset: Intel HD Graphics 3000

Display: Generic PnP Monitor on Intel HD Graphics 3000

Motherboard: HP 1846 (U3E1)

BIOS: HP 68IRR Ver. F.68

RAM: 6Gb

I currently have installed AMD Catalyst Control Center Version 2015.0215.2138.37093

And Intel HD Graphics Graphics's driver version 9.17.10.4459

(I can provide other info if needed).

I can't seem to configure switchable graphics on my laptop.

I've tried many things.

I installed all the drivers corresponding to my laptop from the HP website.

I tried the lastest drivers for my GPU on the AMD website. (Crimson and CCC)

I even tried the leshcat drivers when the site was still up.

Nothing worked so far. My computer always use the Intel chipset.

I always did clean installation of the driver using AMD cleanup utility and/or DDU.

Is there a solution to this ?

Should I go back to Windows 7 ?

Hope I've provided enough information. Tell me if more is needed.

The problem is the Intel graphics. It does not meet the minimum requirements from Microsoft and is not supported under Win 10.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to help me. 

So the only solution is to go back to Windows 7 ?

If the laptop manufacturer allows it, you can disable the integrated graphics and use the 7650 as the primary graphics. This will cripple your battery, but as long as you use it plugged in to electricity it doesn't matter. Here is a old post from HP (all laptops are the same):

Re: AMD Radeon HD 7650M and switchable graphics

Thanks again. I have an issue though, I can't access my BIOS because it is locked with a password. My computer is actually a second-hand computer, my uncle offered it to me and I have absolutely no way to contact the previous owner. I've aleready tried to contact the HP Support about that but tey told me the only way to get through that password would be to replace the motherboard. I've also tried the "shotgun" solution on a MyDigitalLife topic but it wasn't supporting my computer I think... I wonder if there is a way to bruteforce that password. 

If there is no way for me to access my BIOS at all, would going back to W7 be my only solution ?

Well I tried it because I was a bit desperate, unfortunately my AMD GPU is not supported... (I should have seen that before.) Hope there will be other projects like that in the future.
