    Dual graphics drivers

    ibromohp

      I have a Hp pavilion 15 laptop. AMD A8 Radeon R5 (TM) Graphics + AMD R7 m260 switchable graphics. I have done clean uninstall of graphics drivers and now i want to reinstall the drivers. I've tried the crimson version from AMD website, but that just crashed my system. Which drivers should i install and how should i enable dual graphics? Also for the R5 graphics card im not sure the exact series, that's all it says. Can someone walk me through the order in which I download the drivers and how I should set them up?

       

      Sorry if info is too less

      Thanks in advance

              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

              Windows 8.1

              AMD Catalyst Version 15.7.1

              Processor: AMD A8-6410 APU with Radeon R5 2.00 GHz

              RAM 8GB

               

              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
