Actually, i only blocked the Intel Driver (29/09/2016) from WU because if i install latest (18/10/2018) from Intel Support Assistant, it overwrites just like AMD driver overwriting any other driver...
Some development here, i installed the AMD latest driver 19.10.1 for my dell 5547... there seems to be no BSODs, but i don't know why the Radeon Settings aren't opening.... any sugguestions?
Okay, so, after multiple failed attempts, I reverted back to Windows 8.1 x64 and installed both Intel & AMD drivers from Dell Support.
Positive thing is now, AMD driver installed and can be enabled anytime without causing any stuttering/freezes/BSOD.
Hence, I proceeded to launch Switchable Graphics from the 5/5/2014 version but once a high performance app is launched i.e. "The Forest"... laptop fan gets noisy and after 2-3 minutes of gameplay, I get either of these BSODs:
* Thread Stuck in device driver
* Critical Process Died
Hardware Monitor App showed AMD GPU temp of 511*C !!
Then, I tried GPU-Z which gave:
AMD GPU Clock = 0
AMD Default Clock = 0
Note: i disabled EnableUlps to '0'
Link state power to 'off
TdrDelay to '8'
Any further help will be appreciated as to how can I keep AMD GPU with less usage/noise ? Can i try these drivers:
On Windows 8.1 x64, i installed latest drivers as follows:
Intel HD(R) Graphics Family driver dated 3/23/2016 version 10.18.14.4414
AMD R7 M260 (15.10 beta) driver dated 10/12/2015 version 15.201.1151.1005
Now, i don't get any BSODs except the ''MMLoaddrv.exe.....graphics stopped and recovered"
Ran, DxDiag reports with following results:

ANY HELPFUL COMMENTS for me, Mates ?
Thanks, please don't mind me, since i keep posting repeatedly...
Sorry for late reply, bountyhunter
In fragments, if i try to launch a game using AMD GPU, 'white screen' appears otherwise ''MMloaddrv.exe" error followed by:
I also came across this links:
Any alternate 'solution' ?
I am open to any suggestions ?
I installed Windows 8.1 on my laptop as it's more stable, in case of BSODs.
Unfortunately, i almost gave up, but now, i'll check to see if apps/games run well on 8.1
