Hi there..
AMD no longer supports Windows 8.1, just like kingfish said.http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows%208.1%20-%2064

Altough, you can install the lastest driver available:
Which is the 17.7.1

Furthermore, AMD does not offer drivers for graphics cards for that you should also look at manufacturing site

There are no drivers for that card for Win8.1. AMD and Microsoft dropped support a couple of years ago. You can try the drivers for Win7...no guarantees.

This of course is based on the assumption that you do not have a APU. Laptop graphics update...How to

I find it hard to believe you recently bought a new computer with Win8.1 as its OS.

It says in the DxDiag that I have R5 graphics with 4000 mb of memory , and when I enter Amd Catalyst settings it says that it has 840 mhz of core speed , while Radeon 520 has 1000 , why it doesn't show me Radeon 520 in DxDiag ?

Thank you very much !!

Because DX is reading the current (idle) graphics. Laptops read differently.

Do some reading:
