          Please provide more information.



          To configure an application to use the discrete GPU you need to open Radeon Settings > Preferences > Additional Settings.


          In CCC Slim, navigate to Switchable Graphics Application Settings. This area will allow you to select which 3D application uses the Integrated GPU or the High Performance GPU. Add the application to CCC and select High Performance Mode to ensure that the High Performance GPU is used. Note, it is recommend to have the laptop plugged in and Windows configured to High performance mode in the Control Panel > Power options to ensure you get the best possible performance.

              After installing the drivers for my AMD graphics card(tried both from lenovo as well as from amd website) ,Under "display adapter properties" I am getting only 2136MB as total available graphics memory which include only "128MB" dedicated memory,even though I have 2GB dedicated memory.Games like FIFA 15,GTA IV are not working in high graphics.For other games too I have tested with GPU-Z to see which graphics card is being used.I found that my Intel hd graphics is being used and 0% load on amd one.I have tried to add applications (games) under switchable graphics option,but result is same.I want to know why I am getting only 2136MB as total graphics memory.Is it fine to have 2136MB graphics with $GB RAM+2GB AMD graphics card?If not then what is the solution for this?
