    The OEM graphics drivers are the ones listed on that same HP support page. They are old but you should try them just to see if any difference.

    It would appear that the CCC is not detecting the switchable dual graphics. What version CCC did you install? I'd try your game again anyway and see if the same issue comes back after doing the clean install.

    OK, I'm running out of ideas. I can't see this making any difference but you could try resetting the BIOS to defaults. I didn't see any settings in my laptops BIOS to disable the dual graphics or set one particular card as master but who knows. Yours is a different manufacturer. How old is this laptop? Is it still under warranty?

    When you opened CCC did you click the Preferences option in the top right and select Advanced View? Device manager shows both GPU's? I know I'm rehashing stuff, but like I said I'm running out of idea's. I'm not convinced its strictly a software issue but don't really know how to prove it one way of the other. Did you try resetting the BIOS to defaults?

    Yes i had selected the advance mode only
    And yes i had resetted the BIOS
    What i think is that i should remove and reinsert the card
    Is there any utility with which i can check whether both of them are working or not
