    Lenovo G510 Graphics Card(s) issues

    I recently purchased a Lenovo G510 laptop with Windows 8.1. I've had only one major issue with it, where I can't use the AMD Radeon graphics which should be on my computer. When I load up Speccy, only the Intel HD Graphics 4600 shows up; the same happens when I look for the AMD card in Device Manager. I want to be able to use my AMD Radeon Graphics though.

    CCC Switchable Graphics

    On computers with an Intel power-saving GPU and an ATI high-performance GPU, Dynamic Mode switchable graphics is configured using the Catalyst Control Center software.

    To maximize the energy efficiency or if you typically use programs that have lower graphical requirements (such as word processing or spreadsheet programs), you do not need to make any changes to the settings in the Catalyst Control Center software. The computer uses the power-saving GPU by default for most applications. You can still run high-performance programs, videos, and games in default mode but you are likely to notice lower frame rates, dropped frames, and choppy animations and transitions.
    Applications that have higher graphical requirements (such as 3D video games), work better using the high-performance GPU. Graphics intensive software, videos, and games run at their optimum settings using the high-performance GPU.

    Using the high-performance GPU on battery power will shorten the battery's effective usage time. The high-performance GPU generates a noticeable amount of heat while running graphics intensive software and, to keep the computer from overheating, the fan noise increases with increased fan use.

    To change the default switchable graphics settings in the Catalyst Control Center software, follow the steps below.

    1. Click Start , type CCC in the Search field, and then select CCC from the search results list.

    2. On the Welcome screen, click Power , and then click Switchable Graphics .

    3. Select a Recent Application and click the green or red button to change the default graphic solution between power-saving and high-performance. Or click Browse to find the executable file for the application you need to configure.

    4. Click Apply to save the new settings. The changes take place immediately.

    The thing is, its not being detected by the computer by any circumstance. There is not software or drivers for AMD installed on the computer. Whenever I do install the AMD drivers and software, I still have no access to Catalyst Control Manager, only Intel Graphic properties on right-click, and does not appear in Speccy or Device Manager.

    What happens when setup is detecting hardware?
