HI
I have a HP Notebook - 15-bg001ax
Specs:- https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c05239793

Product name
HP Notebook - 15-bg001ax
Microprocessor
AMD Quad-Core A8-7410 APU with Radeon™ R5 Graphics (2.2 GHz, up to 2.5 GHz, 2 MB cache)
Memory, standard
4 GB DDR3L-1600 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB)
Video graphics
AMD Radeon™ R5 M430 Graphics (2 GB DDR3 dedicated)
Hard drive
1 TB 5400 rpm SATA

I have tried installing various type of drivers but in all my games it shows that my Laptop is running the R5 APU and not the dedicated M430,I am not sure which driver to install ,I run Windows 10 x64 pro and I recently upgraded my RAM to 8 GB also but still I am unable to use the dedicated graphics. I was hoping to play some low end and mid range games.Please Advise.

I also do not know which driver is perfect for my laptop as it is pretty old ,I read somewhere that a particular driver provides you with switchable graphics option

Ok so I installed the above driver,It shows my discrete card to be M330 and the switchable graphics option is available in driver control panel but not in the windows display settings when I go to select a game and set graphics to high performance

ok I have uninstalled the driver and went to HP website and got OEM drivers ,After installing my Discrete GPU is shown M430 and I do get the Catalyst control center where I choose an application and assign high performance but in the Microsoft display graphics settings I still do not see my M430 in it for high performance
