my processor won't run any games

hi, I recently bought a new computer with the highest stuff I could manage, and I got the AMD A10 Extreme Edition Radeon R8, 4C+8G. The problem is that whenever I try to run a game it sets me to lowest because the games don't recognise my processor. When I go to "can I run it" it says that my processor isn't even registered and that it's too low to run anything correctly. Can anyone help me out with this?? I've been told that it's a good processor and it was the best I could afford. Thank you!!

Re: my processor won't run any games

i am running on an HP Pavillion and my specs are

16gb ram

directx 12

graphics card is radeon r8 m368dx

i just updated the drivers and still no dice, and i'm running on windows 10 64bit home, and it is also up to date.

i am trying to run any of the bioshock games and skyrim, which are choppy and laggy to the point of unplayability at the lowest quality i can set it to. do you need any other information to help? thank you

Re: my processor won't run any games

What resolution have your monitor?

Your CPU is OK, but graphics system is pretty weak and problematic. It is a combination of two weak graphics cards, working in tandem.

Games don't recognize your r8 m368dx, not processor. I think.
