Thank you for your reply. In the time since I posted my issue, I watched videos on youtube and now i have the necessary drivers on my laptop.
AMD Graphics card: Radeon R7 m260 2gb
HP Pavilion 15
AMD Catalyst Version 15.7.1
Processor: AMD A8-6410 APU with Radeon R5 2.00 GHz
So what I've done now is that I right clicked desktop screen and opened switchable graphics settings. I then went on the power section and I set the game im trying to play (fifa 17) as high performance. I also added it to the apps under high performance. I then opened fifa 17 expecting the R7 graphics to start functioning. However, fifa crashes shortly after starting. It then shows a dialog saying that my graphics card crashed. In the dialog the R5 graphics card is shown to be the one running. How can I get my laptop to switch to the R7 card. I'm quite new at all this so please be patient with me. I've attached a sc of the error dialog shown.
Thanks in advance
