OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Laptop - Vaio S series(VPCSB36FA) with swithcable graphics (AMD/Intel)

  • I first noted this problem when I tried updating my driver using the Auto detect feature in the AMD website, it detects my Graphic card as AMD Radeon 7400m even though I have Radeon 6470m.
  • I again faced this problem when I upgraded my laptop to Win10 where it auto updated my driver on installation to 7400m. (Thus I had to revert back to Win7)
  • I am not even able to use my catalyst Control because of this problem.


Please provide a solution to this problem, Ive searched online about this and many people have this problem but not many are able to solve it. I will provide all the help I can to solve this problem.
