Hello Everyone,
I recently got this Old HP Laptop from a family member and the model number of the Laptop is HP Pavilion P025ax. It is running Windows 10 64Bit Pro and its all up to date. The specs are as follows:
Amd A10 5745m 2.1 Ghz With HD 8610G iGpu
R7 m260 DGpu.
The issue im running into is that I have tried various drivers however no installer seems to be able to install the driver correctly onto the R7 M260. Hd 8610G seems to work fine after installation however the R7 M260 throws an error of how it was wasnt functioning properly and had to stopped but the installer doesnt give any errors. Amd radeon software doesnt start either stating no amd graphics drivers are installed. I have tried various versions from Amd website and the HP website but no dice.
The Oem Drivers install goes a little better and i can start fallout NV but the launcher shows the graphics adaptor as microsoft basic renderer and the games runs on 720p low settings with 20-30 fps while it runs on HD 8610G with 60fps same settings.
The GPUz application shows the details of the hd 8610G adaptor but not of the m260 probably because of the missing driver.
This seems to be quite a common issue with this setup but i can not figure out a workaround or solution. any help would be greatly appreciated or if anyone coul point me to the right drivers. Id Be glad.

Common issues for the internal gpus to die in that model and many more of the year.

I installed Drivers through Driver Pack Solutions and it seems to work better, The device manager didnt give an error, GpuZ now has most of the information on the Card {except Shaders, Bios, Transistors and Die SIze} And i can run Fallout NV. The launcher still shows HD 8610g as the adaptor but Msi Afterburner shows that GPU 1 And Gpu 2 have 100% usage which are R7 M260. Hd 8610{gpu 3} barely has any usage.
The performance is still worse than HD 8610g and the memory clocks remain at the base so its still not performing optimally.
