Hello, so i have this issue. I have switchable graphics : intel hd graphics 4600 and amd radeon r5 m230. Ive got intel core i5-4200M CPU aswell. Im only using the intel graphic, because i cant run the AMD one. I installed every latest drivers, tryied everything that i searched on the internet , but nothing changed. Every time i want to launch any game, it wont start. It keeps saying that the graphic card stopped working and the laptop freezes or just the game crashes. This happens only on the AMD one, thats why i disabled it in bios some time ago. The other issue with that graphic is, that when i want to enable it again in the bios, laptop freezes again on booting. So im not able to start it back with the option to enable switchable graphics in the bios. Im struggling with this problem over a year, so please, if somebody is able to help .. :v
