    Help regarding AMD dual graphic disabling


    guys i need your help
    i am on windows 8
    i am using HP laptop
    this is my ccc version

    i got 2 problems
    well first one is that i can't update to windows 8.1 as the update always hang on 82% and after that my laptop
    automatically shutsdown i don't know whats the reason is and that's why i am stuck at windows 8 till now although have 8.1 ISO but i don't want to install it as i have to erase my my windows 8 which came pres-installed so i will
    loose my genuine windows 8 .now i want to know what if i open the 8.1 installer and install it from a virtual tool like
    Deamon although it gives an option to keep files app setting safe but i fear that it would conflict with 8 and i would have to format my laptop then
    ok now to the major problem
    i just recently purchased Watch Dogs and installed it.I played the first mission and got busted so the mission failed and it began to reload and then a error pops up saying watch dogs have stopped working
    upon googling i found out that this is due to DUAl AMD Graphics so they stated that i should disable it
    but i cant find any option of disabling DUAL Grahics
    so can you guys help me

    You can install Windows 8.1 with a generic code and then activate with your embedded windows 8.0 OEM code that's in the BIOS.
    Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.
    To find out what your OEM Product code is look at this, Product Key - Find for Windows 8

    Does it actually have dual graphics? My ASUS laptop has an A-10 APU which has a Radeon 7660G GPU in it. It also has a dedicated 7670M with 1 gig of onboard video RAM. It can switch back and forth between the two depending on what its doing and whether its plugged into the power pack or not.

    I don't know what to tell you? Your right on both counts, you have dual graphics but CCC isn't showing it. Version 14.7 is what I'm running on my laptop.
