    HP TouchSmart TM2 graphics problems


    Hi, I have a hp touchsmart tm2 2050ea, it used a hybrid Intel (power saver gpu/don't know what its called) and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450.

    when I installed windows 8 it kept the Intel drivers but removed the ATI ones, so I went to AMD's website and downloaded the drivers for windows 8 after I installed them it asked me to restart so I did. After I restarted it I realised that it had forgot that I had wireless internet and when I tried to fix that more programs messed up, I tried to repair the AMD drivers and nothing changed so I uninstalled them, restarted it then it worked fine again.

    it use to have a thing when I right clicked the screen about switchable graphics and I was wondering if there is something out there for my laptop I have looked on hp site and amd's but can't find anything can someone help ?

    thanks ��
