Well technically Speaking any driver above 16.2.1 shouldn't have worked on your system. Your build is the Primary APU with 8650G (one of the discontinued chips) first then only if it went into high Performance mode would the 8670M kick in for better graphics. This build works best when the same driver is on the APU and Discrete GPU. It seems like you had a software Fluke where your system was using the Discrete only and ignoring the APU graphics.As if your Discrete card was a dedicated graphics card!
Personally with that Line of APU I found that we had better performance on anything pre-crimson driver! and that the HP Drivers might be you best option rather then using new Drivers from AMD. Unless you get it to work again as you did with 16.5.x !
see i know that APU is discontinued even though if it has new driver now it
will not give performance im now focusing only on amd 8670m im not even
consider apu 8650g as an graphics unit its just an inbuilt unit thats it
all my games are setted only on high performance (8670m) all that i ask is
stable driver for amd 8670m and also dont include some GPU's like amd 8670m
with your inbuit graphics like 8650g just give us dedicated graphics.In our
country these product distributors scamming as they even put my HP in
gaming built after i bought these thing i get worried its not even properly
play your own optimised game like tomb raider 2013.Crysis3,etc.I highly
recommend you to ask these product distributors to say as truth these
gentleman are scammers you need to sue these guys tell if they repeat these
kind of act like spamming and telling us wrong info then we will sue you
and they even said its an dual graphics i taught it will be good for
gaming.Im from india these is the site which given us wrong info about your
product http://www.flipkart.com/ just ask them not to give wrong info about
your product.Thank you...

Ok, why don't we look at all who is involved here and see where your faulty information originated from. If the bad information came from the Online Retail site you linked in your last post. Then you would have too see if there are any Civil or Legal actions you can take against the retailer in your country of origin. AMD at this point has provided all it can for software support for your product but, also have to take in the count that the AMD Product you are trying use new software with was Modified by the PC Manufacturer in this case HP. So you have to go to them (HP) and see if they offer any updated custom drivers for your hardware. If they don't and you have any warranty with that PC Manufacturer for your product. I would then contact them (again HP) and ask when they plan on updating the driver for your product or see if they have any other available option to you.
thank you i will be checking HP site then
