Hello, please someone help me :

I have a HP Pavilion 15 with HD8610g (weaker card) and R7 M260

Whatever drivers I tried to install (from HP; from AMD; different versions etc), m260 says its working in Device manager, but actually its not (tested with amd system monitor) and performance is very bad.

Lots of people asked the same question but no one helped them.

HP  told me that their drivers will work only on OEM Win8.1 (they must be kidding me) and since I reinstalled win8.1 they WON'T WORK

 

Seems like many people can't get R7 m260 to work :
