If you haven't done so, I would update the Laptop's BIOS and CHIPSET. Especially the BIOS which the latest version is considered to be "Urgent".

For the latest AMD Graphics driver to work you must have the latest Intel APU Driver installed. There is are newer Drivers for the year 2018 & 2019 for your laptop. I would update at least all Intel Drivers and CHIPSET and BIOS to the latest versions. Then see if your laptop work better.

Here is the Dell Support Download page for your laptop: Support for Latitude E6540 | Drivers & downloads | Dell US
