    Is there any utility with which i can check whether both of them are working or not
    The "card" is most likely soldered to the motherboard. They experimented with removable graphics cards for awhile in laptops but it has pretty much died out.

    Even if it isn't permanently soldered to the board removal won't be easy. I doubt there is an access panel so you'd have to remove the whole bottom half of the lower section. Other than device manager I'm not sure what to check. You could have a look though your manual to see if there are any factory installed diagnostics to run.

    Ops, looks like I goofed up a bit. I'm running AMD Catalyst Version 14.4, not 14.7. I'm not sure why I thought it was 14.7? If you are running 14.7 maybe try 14.4 instead. I think 14.7 is RC , release candidate/beta, so maybe 14.4 will work for you. Something else I noticed is if I right click the Catalyst Icon in the notifications area I get a Configure Graphics and a Configure Switchable Graphics options.

    This is what I get. This is with version 14.4 downloaded from AMD, not from ASUS.
