Windows 10 and switchable graphics drivers 6520g+7690m

So, everything was fine on Windows 7. I had installed the latest drivers for my quite old now cards(6520g and 7690m) which were 16.2.1. But today I uodated to Windows 10 and what I found out in device manager is that an older version was installed. I've been trying to fix this for hours. What's going on? Why can't I use 16.2.1? Also, when I try to install 16.2.1, there's no driver box to tick.

You did not mention that your processor is a APU. Kinda important. I'm guessing your computer does not fully support Win10. What is your APU?

It's an A6-3430MX I think. 4 cores.

Yup....You have to use the drivers furnished by Microsoft

The following AMD APU products with AMD Radeon™ Graphics support up to WDDM 1.2 and DirectX® 11 on Windows 10:

  • AMD A4/A6/A8-3000 Series APUs
  • AMD E2-2000 APU
  • AMD E1/E2-1000 Series APUs
  • AMD E-200/300/400 Series APUs

NOTE: These APU products must be installed only using the display driver version available via Windows Update. If you have upgraded to Windows® 10, please DO NOT install the AMD Catalyst™ Driver. Instead, enable Windows Update and allow it to detect and install the appropriate driver. If you have already upgraded to Windows® 10 and installed the AMD Catalyst™ Driver, please follow the steps listed below to resolve this issu

  1. Uninstall the AMD Catalyst™ Driver using the Program and Features option in the Control Pane
