Radeon HD 6630m not working

Last week I installed Skyrim on my laptop and the only graphics adapter option available was my integrated graphics. Then I tried another game, Slime Rancher, the game tried to use AMD GPU (6630), but instead it crashes.

My computer seems to be having trouble changing the graphics card.

Later I tried disabling the Intel GPU (HD Graphics 3000), but Windows did not select the AMD GPU, saying "Windows stopped the device (code 43)".

I re-enabled my Intel graphics.

I went to Windows Settings> Display> Graphics Settings, selected a random game (Terraria) and selected options, and the only GPU option is my Intel GPU.

I did a Clean driver installation using Guru3D, however it still not working.

Maybe my GPU was flashed (?), The computer is not originally mine.

 

 

Specifications:

Manufacturer: Sony Corporation

Model: VPCCA17FL

OS: Win 10 (Version 10.0.19041 compilation 19041)

CPU: Intel i5-2410M 2.3 GHz

IGPU: Intel GPU (HD Graphics 3000)

GPU: AMD GPU 6600m and 6700m series (6630m) (1G)

RAM: 6G (originally 4G)

BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. R0240V2, 04/12/2011 (MM/DD/YYYY)

EDIT:

I checked CPU-Z and the GPU is not showing up

EDIT 2:

I did a GPU benchmark with 3dMark , it detected the GPU but it says that it is a 6650m running at 450 MHz while it is a 6630m that should work at 500MHz base and 800MHz at Turbo, perhaps it  really was flashed (?).

Any solution?

EDIT 3:

I installed afterburner to see what temperature is working at, if it is working, and the clock frequency

Clock: 100 MHz, the higher it get's 300 MHz

Memory Clock: 150MHz, the higher it get's 300 MHz

Temperatures: around 81ºC!

In the images The AMD GPU it's showing as GPU1

EDIT 4:

Intel HD Graphics 3000 are incompatible with Windows 10 and it's conflicting with switchable graphics. I'm going to try to go back to Win 8.
