    AMD switchable graphic option gone after windows 8.1


    After recent updates from windows 8.1 the switchable graphic card option is no more available on the right click, its totally gone.

    Laptop information
    • HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC
    • Graphic Processor AMD Mobility Radeon HD 7670
    • Processor core i5

    I have tried almost everything re-installation of driver, hp driver scan etc, but nothing solve the issue.

    If I re-install the windows 8.1 then things work properly but soon after 2-3 updates this issue arises again. Yes I know I can disable the windows updates ( but I don't want to do that ).

    Welcome to the forum!

    Kind of late answer but one thing to watch out for is to make sure Windows Update does not install any graphics drivers after you have them working properly.
